This month we took delivery of some new equipment - sorting and IT items for Ducklings, a rocket for Wise Owls, characters (soft toys) relating to popular stories and extra items for our Dolls’ House.

Lindsay W attended Early Years Provider Portal Training & Terri attended Level 2 Safeguarding training. Janet continues to work with our apprentices to ensure that as well as being well-trained, they have a good understanding of our very high standards at Croft House.
Preparations for our Nativity service continued and Wise Owls chose their parts and started to discuss costumes etc.
Staff appraisals took place.
We held our Open Night which attracted lots of prospective parents. We made lanterns for the Horwich Lantern Parade, had a camp fire, there was the opportunity to purchase items for Christmas presents, a singing session, the chance to watch videos of the children involved in their activities, festive refreshments, and an opportunity to look at displays celebrating the children’s skills and interests. Thank you for all the donations of tombola prizes – we raised over £100 for Meningitis Now!

We took most of the Wise Owls to the Victoria Hall to participate in the Bolton Mayor’s Christmas Concert. We loved listening to the orchestra and sang along with the 12 days of Christmas and songs from Mary Poppins, Greatest Showman and Polar Express – we also saw Father Christmas. We had a fab time!
