Fisherfield Childcare nurseries celebrated St Patrick’s Day by dressing in green, having an Irish theme party and discovering the beauty and traditions of our sister country.
Katie Webster, Nursery Manager, said “The children at Sandbrook Park have loved celebrating St Patrick’s Day with a fabulous Irish party. The children dressed in green and jigged away to some traditional Irish music!”
Do you know why we dress in green?
It is thought to revolve around the leprechaun and the legend that wearing green makes one invisible to the mischievous fairies!
"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."
