The YouTube fun continues

Our dedicated staff team ensured that the children didn’t miss us too much during our closure. We remind you to check out out YouTube channel and watch the videos with your little ones, if they are starting with us in the near future it’s a great way to see our staff before they start!

Learning and fun continues over on YouTube

In order to continue the usual fun and learning we provide at Carousel Nursery School, we have created a YouTube channel for all our children and families that we’re missing so very much.

In the coming weeks we will be sharing songs, stories, activities, learning and more in order to provide as much as we can while we are apart.

Please follow the link and share with your children.

Today we have some songs for you to join in our virtual circle time.

Fun with Fairy Tales

The preschool enjoyed taking part in various activities themed around fairy tales, they made “Three Bears” porridge to taste, they made a junk modelling castle and fairy tale display board, dressed up as prince’s and princesses, listened to fairy tale stories, made up their own story and decorated their own ginger bread people!

All the while learning through play within the early years curriculum.


Making sense of it all!


The babies have been using their senses to explore, the baby staff created a wonderful DIY dark tent using one of our spare cots and transforming it as a little cubby for them to get cosy in.

They have also been using the soft play and finding different ways to manoeuvre over, under, through and around obstacles. All of which are great ways to help with developing their co-ordination.

Today: soft play, tomorrow: the world!

The Nursery Allotment is open for summer 2019

Over the past two months the nursery children, parents and staff have been hard at work volunteering their time to get the nursery allotment ready for the summer growing season.

The soil has been turned over and prepped, the pond cleared and refilled, the shed and decking re-coated with protective paint and the crops planted.

The preschool children will soon begin heading over in groups to visit the allotment and learn all about growing, planting and towards the end of the summer harvesting what the setting has grown.

If you fancy spending some time over the allotment with your children let us know and we can arrange a time and the keys.

Preschool Graduation Party!

Congratulations to our Preschool Class of 2018 Graduates

As with every year the time has flown and we once again, through teary eyes bid farewell to another brilliant group of amazing Preschool leavers!

We threw a party this year and spent the time dancing, playing games and eating yummy food while having a mini disco. We then had our class of 2018 receive their certificates and class photo before they went and posed for pictures in their cap and gown!

We would like to thank the parents and carers who joined us and helped mark this special occasion, your children’s development and education has been a shared journey we have been on together and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for these wonderful little people!
