Throughout the month of December Tynemouth Nursery asked parents to buy one extra present whilst out shopping to support Metro FM’s Steve and Karen’s Mission Christmas Appeal. The response has been fantastic.
Staff were very keen to contribute to this fantastic cause after hearing the radio advert.
Steve and Karen’s Mission Christmas aims to ensure every child in the North East opens a present on Christmas morning.
Nursery Manager Karen Reid explained;
?This is a fantastic appeal and one both myself and my staff team were keen to get involved in. No child should go without on Christmas day and the great generosity of our parents has helped to ensure this does not happen. We are completely overwhelmed by the amount of presents that have been donated and are proud to say we have helped bring a smile to many children’s faces on Christmas day?
A healthy active lifestyle is actively encouraged at every setting. Tynemouth Nursery at Church High has fun with lots of lovely fresh fruit.
We all know and understand the importance of teaching our children the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and within each of our settings we encourage the children to participate in activities to promote this. Whether it be running and expressing themselves outdoors or as seen in the photograph enjoying preparing their own fruit salad.
During this activity the children learn all about textures, smells and taste therefore enhancing sensory development, we also discuss where and how the fruits are grown encouraging knowledge and understanding of the world around them and then we focus strongly on how the fruits help us to grow, the benefits of feeling fit and healthy and why this is good for us.
The process rather than the end product is a vital part of the EYFS and by carrying out activities such as this the children develop an excellent understanding of why and how they make healthy choices.
Zone4Kids in Whitley Bay next to Whitley Bay Golf Club, established in 2004 is now delighted to confirm we can now accommodate children from 1 year of age both part time and full time. Manager Jayne Turnbull explains, ?There has been a lot of demand from parents to provide nursery care for younger children, we now have a purpose built baby room together with both indoor and outside facilities appropriate for this age. The successful breakfast club, wrap around and holiday club continues to operate.
Annual Tynemouth Nursery Group Graduation Ceremony
In July 2002 Tynemouth Nursery Group held its first graduation ceremony, one of the first within North Tyneside. Each year the children beam with pride as they walk in their mortar board and gown to be presented with their framed graduation certificate. Parents, family and friends applaud and shed tears of joy as they see their children graduate from nursery.
2013 was no exception with 75 children attending the ceremony!
Watching as your children grow in confidence, knowledge, social skills and academic ability, this is a fantastic, emotional and special opportunity to reflect on the children’s time at nursery and celebrate that all important step to ?Big School?.
