CONTACT WITH OUR COMMUNITY

The children will be involved in community outings and inside visits throughout their time at Little Footsteps. This will include visits from professionals such as police, Fireman, local school teachers, and Librarian. We will visit local points of interest such as park, shops, farm, fire station, laundrette, supermarket and town market. Links with and an understanding of the local community are very important to the developing minds of children. Consent will be obtained from parents/carers prior to such experiences.

OUR VISITS TO THE LOCAL PARKS

At Little Footsteps we go out and about at least once a week to various places. One of our favourite is the park.

OUR VISITS TO THE LIBRARY

We visit the library weekly with all ages of children. The children are able to choose their own books to borrow and we also order topic boxes to help with educational learning. We have a wonderful relationship with the libary and the children enjoy visiting and sharing books with each other.

OUR WIDER COMMUNITY

We also visit our wider community with planned trips out at the end of the Summer Term. The whole Buds Room venture out on the bus to various places such as The Sea Life Centre, The Dinosaur Park, Wroxham Barns. The Seedlings and Shoots rooms take smaller groups of children to Planet Zoom for the morning and meet the rest of the children and their Parent/Carers at Planet Zoom. These trips are largely subsidised by the Little Footsteps as a thank you to all parents for supporting us throughout the academic year.

PARENTS EVENTS

At Little Footsteps we regularly hold events for our parents to attend. The purpose of these events is to encourage our parents to socialise, communicate together and become a wider, stronger community network, learn about new developments/changes, information about the nursery and their child’s development, gain qualifications and training, and for enjoyment.

These events include Body Shop parties, Pampered Chef, EYFS Workshops, Paediatric First Aid training, Parents evening and many more.

PAEDIATRIC FIRST AID TRAINING JULY 2012

This course was offered to our parents at a reduced price of £15 and took place for 5 hours on a Saturday. This was a recognised certificated course that gave all who attended the knowledge & skills necessary to help save a child’s life should they ever need to, this included everything from burns, cuts, choking to CPR. All who attended really enjoyed themselves and felt more confident that they could deal with accidents, injuries or emergencies if they needed to.

“Great opportunity to mix with other nursery parents & an informative & useful subject for all parents”

FAMILY DAYS

At Little Footstep throughout the year we aim to offer various Family Days e.g. Summer BBQ, Christmas Grotto, Easter Egg Hunt..... This wonderful opportunity allows the whole family to come and access fun, free activities for all, socialise with other nursery families and enjoy the nursery as a family.

SUMMER FAMILY FUN DAY 18th JULY 2014

Lots of fun was had by all the families that attend our annual Summer Fun Day. We had Hook a duck, Ten pin bowling, Guess the weight of the cake, Balls in a bucket, Candy floss and much much more. Children and adults won lots of prizes for taking part in our traditional carnival games. Please see pictures below.
