The children have been busy this month! They especially enjoyed making yummy healthy smoothies with fruit and soya milk.
For Earth Day the children painted mini Earths and enjoyed playing in the garden that day as well. Sensory time is always a blast in our black-out tent with LED lights and sensory toys! We've been focusing this month on healthy eating by example during mealtimes and exploring different textures through messy play!
The children have loved all of the fun activities in April! From making Easter bunnies to celebrating Earth Day by planting trees in the forestry school area, we're on it! Our topic this month has been 'Animals of the World,' so we've been reading books about different habitats, colouring various animals and even building a zoo!
Preschool (including Minis)
We've been exploring our forestry school area and planting trees to play our part as Tree Wardens in the local area! We also released our butterfly friends into the wild after they came out of their cocoons. They were very calm at first but eventually flew away.
The Cabin has been learning loads about dinosaurs and even hatched their very own dinosaur eggs! The Lodge has been focusing on planting and taking care of the outdoors as a part of their Earth Day celebration this month!

At Home Activity to Promote Mathematics
We love sharing ideas with parents about how you can promote learning with your child at home. Something that has been very beneficial at the nursery includes using loose parts. At home you can take your child outside and collect pine cones, leaves and rocks. These can be sorted into sizes, counted, placed in odd/even groups or made into shapes! There's so much learning that can be had with loose parts!
