Father Christmas could have been excused if he felt a little concerned when he made an early visit to Fisherfield Childcare’s The School House nursery.
The children were asked where else they had seen Father Christmas and one little boy confessed said he had eaten him that very morning! Thankfully for Father Christmas, he was talking about his chocolate advent calendar!
Father Christmas arrived in the traditional way – the children heard him land on the roof, and they got very excited at the sound. He went round every room in turn: Lambs, Farmers and Ducklings, giving the children early presents and talking to them about what they wanted for Christmas.
Some very excited children had a great day as you can see from their happy faces.
"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."

"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."

"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."
