Bolton Oral Health Improvement Officer, Jenny, came with her puppet friends to talk to the Wise Owls about the importance of looking after our teeth. We talked about why our teeth are so important and which foods are good or bad for our teeth. Christopher the Crocodile showed us how to clean our teeth properly!

We had our staff training session with Debbie Garvey which was extremely productive.  The session involved us looking at quality childcare and how we can continue to provide it in our new building.  We also looked at how the brain functions and how this affects our ability to adapt to change.  We had lots of discussion time on areas such as the importance of communication, identifying how we feel about the changes that the move to our new premises will bring.

We would like to share some of our recent research into HYGGE, a Danish concept relating to creating safe, comfortable, welcoming, calming environments which we feel could play an important part in the refurbishment of our new building.  Coming soon …. look out for the display in the parents’ room!

In anticipation of World Book Day, we purchased lots of new books for Nursery, more on this in next month’s blog.

You may have noticed that we have had several of the trees surrounding nursery pruned & also the area has been surveyed to ensure that the established, large trees do not pose any safety issues.
