August fun

We had a fantastic fun month, with lots of visitors to the nursery and specially organised events for the children to enjoy.  Zoolab came and introduced us to lots of insects and other creepy crawlies, we got to sit inside a real fire engine and use a real fireman’s hose, we held our very own festival and had a day of face painting and a day of body painting too!  We loved having our brothers and sisters come into nursery and play with us and even invited our grandparents in for afternoon tea.  The children had a go at a Zumba class and took part in an interactive story session all about a teddy bears picnic when Pyjama Drama came to visit us.  We loved the bouncy castle and washing all the teachers cars and even had a day in our preschool dedicated to chocolate! Here are just a few photos:

Let’s Party!

We had amazing weather earlier this month for our preschool leavers’ party and we spent the whole afternoon in our garden playing pass the parcel, musical bumps, musical statutes and parachute games.  Debutots came and led a really interesting interactive story session all about starting school.  All the children were mesmerised for the whole time, which was lovely to see.  We had great fun posing for photos in our pop-up photo booth and then finished the party with a picnic.  Here are a few photos of what we got up to:

Father’s Day treasure hunt

We had such a fantastic turn-out for our Father’s Day treasure hunt last week and it was so lovely to see so many men in the nursery garden!


A total of 48 dads came along and did a great job at helping their children find all the hidden sports pictures in our garden.  The children made cakes and biscuits for their dads to enjoy each day and we had lots of sports activities set up for everyone to try afterwards – football, golf, beanbag throwing and an obstacle course.  Here are a few photos of what we got up to:

When 6 little ducklings came to stay…..

A couple of weeks ago six very ordinary eggs were delivered to Mulberry Corner, housed inside a little incubator.  From the moment they arrived, the children took great interest in the eggs, watching them rocking and vibrating.  We only had to wait one day before the first duckling pecked his way out of his egg.  Over the course of 24 hours, all 6 ducklings broke out of their eggs and into the big wide world.  The children were fascinated watching the little ducklings emerge.
