Taking Care of Baby at Children 1st @ Meir Park

Taking Care of Baby at Children 1st @ Meir Park

Children 1st @ Meir Park were delighted to welcome a new mum into nursery with baby Anya to show the children how to look after a baby.

This was part of their topic on growing. The children were fascinated by the scanned images of the baby before birth.

They also were shown the baby’s red book which records how the baby has grown and put on weight since birth.

There was an awed atmosphere as the baby was fed and even the nappy change had everyone’s attention!

We are very grateful to Natalie Booth for giving up her time to visit nursery and provide some very valuable first- hand experience for our children.

Children 1 st @ Acorns Upper Tean Pirate Day!

Shiver me Timbers... It's Pirate Day at Children 1st @ Acorns Upper Tean

To celebrate ‘Talk Like a Pirate Day’ we’ve had a whale of a time with our pirate themed day.

Wearing some fabulous costumes and pirate hats designed and made by the children, we’ve been out and about searching for treasure.

Shh!...Don’t tell anyone, we made the gold coins ourselves!  Searching the gardens to find where they had been hidden was great fun.

As our pirate flags flew aloft it was time for some pirate jokes. Best joke of the day...Why are pirates called pirates? Because they arrrrrh!

Summer Fete to shout about at Children 1st @ Leicester

Summer Fete to shout about at Children 1st @ Leicester

A great time was had by all at Children 1st @ Leicester’s summer Fete this weekend. Well, everyone except perhaps Mr Ian.

Brave Mr Ian brought a cringe to everyone’s face as he bared his lower legs and submitted to some painful waxing, with screams which could be heard as far away as Loughborough. All in a good cause, as staff, families and friends got together to raise funds at our annual Summer Fete.

With plenty of stalls and activities there was much to keep our visitors entertained. Peppa Pig was a welcome guest at the event and brought delight to the youngsters. As well as face painting, we also provided the opportunity to have hands transformed with some beautiful mehendi patterns. The delicious cakes were a firm favourite and soon sold out and who could resist an ice-cream!

Thank-you to everyone who supported this event. It was lovely to see everyone enjoying themselves while supporting a good cause. Mr Ian has raised £160 so far with his waxing and is still collecting!

Check out Mr Ian’s legs as you click through the photos below.

Autumn Rumble Week at Children 1st @ Chesterfield Royal Hospital

As the season turns to autumn there is no better place to be than in the wonderful grounds of Children 1st @ Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

The dazzling shades of red, orange and yellow have formed a beautiful backdrop to our week of autumn activities as we put on our wellies to search the beautiful gardens for conkers, leaves and twigs and enjoy the autumn sunshine.

We have used our collections to make colourful collages on big, leaf shaped paper. We have even used the conkers to make patterns in playdough and we have drawn our own autumn pictures.

For the Tiggywinkles and Jeremy Fishers children coming to nursery dressed in autumn colours was extra special and made our celebration of autumn even more fun.

Check out our Autumn Rumble on the slideshow and keep checking back as we add more as the week progresses.

September Sunflower for Josh!

During the Spring children in Peter Rabbits classes at Children 1st @ Grantham were busy learning all about nature, plants and how they grow.

As part of this topic children planted and then took home a sunflower seedling to plant in their gardens.

We are delighted to share the progress of Josh Clayson’s sunflower with you. Look how much it has grown over the months!

Well done for all your efforts Josh!
