Once again we had a fantastic turnout from parents to celebrate our MacMillan coffee morning on the 29th of September. We had a wonderful morning with our parents chatting over cups of tea, while both mums and dads enjoyed home made cakes along with the children! It was a fantastic morning enjoyed by all! Yet again, there was stiff competition between the ladies as to who would be the star baker, and this year the winner was Lucy Watts in the Totts room with her pigs swimming in a chocolate cake! Well done Lucy! We had lots of fun, and raised a fantastic £86! A big thank you and well done to all who attended!
Thursday the 13th of September was the birthday of the creator of Fantastic Mr Fox, Roald Dahl! The children in Cheltenham thoroughly enjoyed celebrating this by listening to stories read by the wonderful ladies at nursery, and by dressing up in their nursery made Fantastic Mr Fox masks to visit the residents at Sandfields residential home. Whilst here, they enjoyed listening to stories read by the residents, by doing some colouring in and sharing some fruit… even a peach or two. Everyone had a superb day!
Cheltenham celebrated the Royal Wedding in style by hosting their own Garden Party which all the children thoroughly enjoyed! Children came in dressed up at Princes and Princesses, and made a wonderful card for the newly married couple to enjoy!
It was an exciting month at both nurseries with all the staff and children preparing for Christmas! We started our festivities with a fun filled Christmas craft afternoon at both nurseries, which saw the community come together whilst all the children had fun doing some Christmas crafts. Chippenham held a raffle which collected £30 towards a food parcel for the homeless which was a fantastic result. Cheltenham held a raffle which raised £274 for “4 Louis”, which was also fantastic! Chippenham then held a nativity production with lots of stars from our 2 to 4 year olds all doing a wonderful job for our parents and our good friends from Avon Court care home, and Cheltenham showcased their production to all the excited parents! Our final week before Christmas saw us have two Christmas dinners and a Christmas party at both nurseries. With a very special visit from Santa’s good friend Mrs Elf in Chippenham, and Father Christmas in Cheltenham!
