Fun @ Children 1st Day Nurseries

Funky Feet

Funky Feet Music and Movement sessions are weekly sessions for children aged 2-3 and 3-5, each session includes movement to music and an opportunity for the children to make music, singing and dancing with the help of our very cheeky friend “Toes” the bear. Each week parents receive feedback via email about the content of the sessions, and a copy of the planning.

Each term the content of the sessions follows a theme – previous themes have included: space, animals, under the sea, autumn, growing and transport.


Funky Feet, Funky Feet,
Move your body to the beat
Funky Feet, Funky Feet,
Clap your hands and stamp your feet
Funky Feet, Funky Feet,
We’ve all found our Funky Feet!!!

Following the ethos of the EYFS children input their ideas into both session content and theme choices.

Children explore musical concepts; learn about musical instruments, spin, twist, shake, wiggle, roll and stretch to a variety of different genres of music.

Sessions cost £3.00 paid termly, please see your Nursery Manager for further information and session times in your Nursery or email


Children in our Chesterfield nurseries enjoy their weekly swimming lessons; accompanied by familiar practitioners from nursery they attend the swimming pool for their 30 minute sessions.


1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive
6,7,8,9,10 then I let it go again
Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so...
Which finger did it bite?
This little finger on my right!

It’s always lots of fun splashing around and the children are taught in small groups by qualified swimming instructors.

Swimming sessions are currently offered to Jeremy Fishers children at our Chesterfield and St Peter and St Paul nurseries and are very popular. We are currently investigating expanding this service to other areas.

Fun in the Forest...

Children love the outdoors, our nurseries all have outdoor spaces that are as diverse as the areas that they are in; however, all of our children have the opportunity to explore the natural world. Some of our nurseries offer the opportunity for our children to experience forestry style experiences right outside the door, other nurseries are close by. Nevertheless our practitioners and children love spending time exploring the outdoors together.

If you go down to the woods today.
You're sure of a big surprise.
If you go down to the woods today.
You better go in disguise...


Forestry style experiences provide children with the opportunity to discover the natural environment, play within it, and share fun times with their friends hiding, building and exploring.

Our practitioners enjoy the outdoors too and we hold regular training opportunities for practitioners to explore outdoor learning.
