Our graduation ceremonies were a wonderful occasion at both nurseries last week! After wonderful performances at both settings our parents watched as our oldest little pips received their graduation hats, certificates and lovely mirrors in a celebration ceremony which was enjoyed by everyone. We are so proud of our graduates and everything they have achieved. We feel confident that they are very ready for the next exciting stage in their development and we wish them the very best of luck. Thank you to our fantastic staff for all of their hard work, our wonderful parents for all of their support and of course our amazing children for all of the fun and laughter we have had together. Please do remember to pop back and visit us!
Our Chippenham Little Pips had some very exciting visitors today! We were very pleased to welcome two police officers and their patrol car to our nursery. The children had a fantastic time learning about the helpful things that police officers do and also having the chance to sit in their car and press all of the exciting buttons! Shannon (one of our ladies) even had the chance to wear the body vest which she was very excited about! The children gave their fantastic thank you cards and some chocolate biscuits to the officers at the end of the visit. It was a fantastic morning, enjoyed by everyone.
We are very excited to be looking after some very sweet wriggly caterpillars at both of our nurseries. Following the huge excitement around our ducklings and our frogs, the children have now had the chance to watch as the caterpillars form cocoons and then emerge as beautiful ‘Painted Lady’ butterflies. What another wonderful experience!
We are the very proud guardians of 10 gorgeous fluffy ducklings. The eggs at both of our nurseries have now hatched and the ducklings have been exploring their new homes. The children have been fantastic, helping to care for them, feed and water them as well as remembering to be gentle when watching and handling them. It is incredible to see how quickly the ducklings change. Just yesterday they were weak and exhausted with wet feathers following their hatching. Today they are gorgeous fluffy bundles, full of energy and happily exploring their new home. This has been such an amazing experience for our children, really helping them to start thinking about lifecycles and how we care for living things. Please do pop in and see our new additions. Next week the children will be taking them for their first swim in one of our shallow trays. It could be fun!
We are very eggscited about our duck eggs which arrived at our nurseries on Tuesday this week. We have to wait for 28 days before our ducklings hatch so we have lots of fun activities Planned over the next few weeks. We will keep you updated with any news!
Children at both of our nurseries are enjoying a fun filled day in celebration of Red Nose Day. We have had an incredible week with wonderful activities including dressing up days, onesie days and a host of exciting, adventurous activities. We were also very pleased to be able to treat our mummies to an early Mother’s Day Surprise with a freshly baked cake when they dropped off in the morning. What an amazing job you all do! Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed towards such a fantastic week!
Our mummies enjoyed a fresh cake when they dropped off today in early celebration of Mothering Sunday. We hope everyone has a fantastic day!
Our children across both nurseries have been trying some delicious Chinese food as well as dressing up in traditional costumes and creating some fantastic dragons!
Children at our Chippenham Little Pips Nursery were treated to a special story time with Nikki Wright, a teacher from Langley Fitzurse Primary School, during their morning session. The children were fantastic listeners and enjoyed taking part in the story and songs. A wonderful time enjoyed by everyone! Thank you Mrs Wright 🙂
A very big thank you to all of our wonderful children, parents and staff for helping us to raise over £120 at our Little Pips Nurseries for Children in Need. We had a wonderful few days with lots of fun activities, dressing up and culminating in a yummy cake and coffee morning which was well attended at both settings. Thank again for all of your support!
