Energy is one of our Eco topics. Together with the children, we looked at how small things can make a big difference every day to save energy throughout in our nursery building.
Today we had an amazing day in our center, we turned off the lights for one hour and lit candles in the whole building to save energy.
We have been discussing with children about heath and safety rules after lighting the candles in the nursery.
Please see children’s comments and the photos from our event ” Switch of day”.
"I like this black candle. The lights turned off to save energy"
"I also turn off the light at home".
"I like this big one".
"We can not touch them."
"Only teaches can touch candles"
"We can look at them, and I blow out the candles
''I turn off the lights in my house. ''
" I turn off the TV in my home. "
'' Save energy."

We are delighted to say our Garden Fete raised over £518.00 for the nursery, this is an amazing about and thank you to everyone for their generosity and help.
We would also like to say a huge thank you to everyone for taking the time to prepare a miniature garden. We are overwhelmed by the response and so proud of all the children’s achievements. The gardens are amazing and it is so nice to see the children’s personalities coming through in them. We have put all the gardens on display at the nursery entrance so everyone can see and enjoy them. On Tuesday all children that took part will receive a certificate to celebrate their achievement.
Please take your garden home at your convenience.
It was a beautiful sunny day to set the afternoon butterflies free. We sat up on the hill in the sunshine and watched them fly off up into the sky and to the trees. We have been responsibly caring for them and nurturing them since they arrived as tiny baby caterpillars! You can also view the video on the TV screen in nursery.
