Father Christmas took time out from preparing for his trip around the world on Christmas Eve to call in at Fisherfield Childcare’s Sandbrook Park nursery. He brought an early present for each child, but told them that they would have to wait until Christmas Eve for the rest – but only, of course, if they had been good this year.
Father Christmas’s visit was only one of the special things happening at the nursery that day: the others included playing party games, decorating a gingerbread house, playing musical statues, pass-the-parcel, and lots of singing & dancing as you can see from the lovely photo.
"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."
