Juice Nursery Family Fun Day

Wow, what a fabulous time we had on Saturday at our Juice Nursery Family Fun Day… SO many highlights, we don’t know where to begin…. although seeing our children (and several parents… bravo ????????????) in #downwarddogpose to finish off their Stretch-n-Grow session was definitely one, as was the grand finale foam fest, courtesy of Mess Around Cheshire & South Manchester ???????????? Thanks to everyone for coming along, and for supporting our fundraising for Act4Africa Through our ticket sales and ‘guess the number’ competition we raised a fabulous £230, for Kathy’s Kindergarten in Uganda ????????

For your info, there were 267 buttons in the jar and Katie Waller was our lucky winner!! Thanks to everyone for coming along…. here’s to the next one!!! ????

Big 10th Birthday Bash!

We cannot quite believe it, but this month marks the 10th anniversary since Juice Nursery first opened it doors!

To mark this most special of occasions, we invited all our current children, parents and staff to join us at The Bowdon Parish Centre for our Big 10th Birthday Bash for an afternoon of family fun!

We had a little help from our friends at Stretch-n-Grow, Caroline and Kathy, who came along to put us all through our paces (which meant we had definately earnt our birthday cake!) and Milena from Mess Around Cheshire, who created a room full of messy activities all with a birthday theme, for the children to enjoy!

Safe to say we all had a fabulous time…. and here’s next 10 years!!!

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.

Summer Stretch-n-Grow Style!

Well the summer holidays might be in full swing for some, but not Stretch-n-Grow Altrincham & Sale who continue to put our Juice Nursery children through their paces, continuing with their summer adventure theme… becoming explorers on a special island, where, in search of the magical waterfall they face a number of challenges, which means they have to keep their whits about them and use all their super senses!

The children have to move along the fruit fitness trail, feed some hungry hippos, play the skipping game with some snappy crocodiles, build a raft to sailed up the jungle river, as well as rolling down the volcano and zooming up rocket mountain! Even our little Wrigglers take part in some mini challenges!

As ever the team at Stretch-n-Grow’s aim it to excite the children about being healthy and get them ready for their next step – whether it be moving up in nursery or going onto big school.

Have A Heart

A BIG BIG shout out to everyone who supported us as the children all took part in our’Have A Heart’ fundraiser yesterday.

Kathy and Caroline from Stretch-n-Grow Altrincham & Sale put our Juice Nursery Superheroes through their paces, and oversaw the children, who all successfully completed their obstacle courses! Apart from having a fabulous time, we have, to date raised over £740 (and counting!!!) for our appeal, to raise funds to buy a portable defibrillaor, or AED, which we hope to position outside our building so that, in case of emergency, members of the general public as well as the nursery, might benefit from this potentially life saving piece of equipment.

Thank you very very much to everyone who has donated! For more information or to donate please contact sarah@juicenursery.com
