To enhance the well-being of our Fisherfield staff, we hosted a Gong Bath on International Mental Health Day. A Gong Bath involves getting cosy on a mat, with a blanket and pillows and relaxing to the healing vibrational energy of specially designed gongs. Martin from Gong Spa Manchester has 25 years’ musical experience and has hosted over 10,000 gong baths! The team found the experience calming and re-energising.
Fisherfield Childcare deeply values the well-being of all staff in the Company. To further promote this a Well-Being Centre will open this month. This will host regular free of charge events to support staff, their health and well-being.
As a result of the positive feedback future events include Crystal Sound Bowl baths, yoga classes, nutritional workshops and much more.
"Staff have an excellent knowledge and understanding of the children's individual needs and provide a stimulating environment where all children are excited and motivated to learn. Observations of children are consistently used to plan for children's individual next steps in learning."
Linda Shore, Ofsted Inspector
"This provision is outstanding . All practitioners have high aspirations for children's achievement. This means the nursery is exceptional in the way it meets the needs of all children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, and they make very rapid progress towards the early learning goals."
Ofsted inspector Caroline Midgley
"The Staff always make my child feel happy, safe and secure. The Staff are always approachable, welcoming any queries, concerns and often encourage new ideas from parents and children. My daughter often get comments she is lovely and often models herself on the staff."
Scott, Olivia's Dad
"My son, eats food at nursery that he wouldn't / doesn't eat at home. Which is fantastic! I think the other children eating well shows him there something more to this dish than he thinks."
