This afternoon, we went outside into our playhouse to watch the rain. The toddlers said they could hear the "rain and wind" and it was very exciting. Their favourite part was jumping in the puddles. ... See MoreSee Less

Humpty Dumpty Childcare

Across all our nurseries we are constantly encouraging the children's self-independence and responsibility when carrying out small tasks.

Once baked, we cut, dunked and ate the bread with our healthy and yummy soup.

This is a great example of 'in the moment' planning, bringing mathematics to the children during their free play, whilst they develop their expressive arts and design.
