Miss Rae who has worked with us since May has started to develop a training programme for all the staff. Rae has worked as a trainer and assessor with a previous company and has a lot of experience in this area. Some staff are currently undergoing training in Safeguarding, Prevent and the use of the defibrillator.

Rae is carrying out weekly apprentice training.

Miss Laura had Outdoor First Aid Training and Miss Rae has done Paediatric First Aid training this month.

Miss Beth attended a course on Aided Language Stimulation and Janet had an update on Safeguarding.

Busy Bees have enhanced their role play area by purchasing some new resources etc.

Ladybirds went blackberry picking and used the juices of the blackberries to paint pictures.

We have recently done an audit of all of our books with the intention of creating a small ‘library’ in our Training Room, to be used by our older pre-school children and the children from the Before/After school club.

Some of the Wise Owls started their swimming lessons at Horwich Leisure Centre.

Some staff carried out some research on ‘The Curiosity Approach’ which takes principles from Early Years theorists to influence practice. Whilst our own practice does already reflect this approach, we feel that some of the suggestions, such as the use of everyday, natural items to excite children and develop their learning, could be further enhanced.
