Staff Member of the Month – October

Congratulations go to Sarah Abbey, Childcare Worker in our Purple Room, who was the recipient of our Juice Nursery October Staff Member of the Month award. A reflective practitioner, Sarah has recently suggested various ways in which she thinks we can further develop our Purple Room and we love her enthusiasm and proactivity! Well done, Sarah!

We are adventurers!

Our Juice Nursery Preschoolers had a great time in Stamford Park this afternoon under the watchful eye of Paul from We Are Adventurers‚Äč.

As well as learning some top tips for keeping safe whilst playing outdoors (mind those nettles!!) we collected lots of leaves and did some weaving, before creating a stick picture frame filled with lots of interesting things that we found in the woods, including feathers and flowers. We then had a go painting with mud, surprise surprise this was very popular before finishing off with a round or two of hide and seek which all the children really enjoyed.

Great fun in the fresh air….long may this lovely Autumn weather continue! :)

Movement Matters!

A big Juice Nursery shout out to our friends Kathy and Caroline from Stretch-n-Grow Altrincham & Sale who put our staff through their paces during a very informative (and interactive!!) workshop, reinforcing the importance of physical development in young children and the fact that movement really does matter for a variety of reasons.

With childhood obesity at an all time high, and children in the UK not getting enough regular exercise, it was great to hear from them to find out how we can ensure that we, here at nursery, are making the most of the sessions which they run for us on a weekly basis.With some top tips and additional ideas for activities that we can introduce to further enhance our planning this really was a brilliant session.

Rebecca Jones is on the up!

Some might say that Becky Jones is on a bit of a roll at the moment!

In August she was our Staff Member of the Month, and we are delighted to announce her promotion to Senior Childcare Worker in our Pink Room, in recognition of the fantastic job that she is doing.

Always professional and proactive, we are really proud to have her as part of our team here at Juice Nursery.

Congratulations Becky!!
