We had a great day celebrating Diwali at Wizz kids today. We welcomed parents into nursery who helped the children with all the new activities. We loved making flat breads which were thoroughly enjoyed by the children. If you fancy making it at home here is the recipe https://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/quick_flatbreads_43123
The children also practised their artistic skills, painting henna onto cut out hands, making jewelled pictures of colourful flowers and making clay candle holders with decorative jewels. Here are a few photos of the day
We had some emotional days at the end of last term and would like to share some of the wonderful comments we received form parents. It is very heart warming to see the older children progress and get ready for school and we are very proud to be part of their early years development.
” Thank you so much for taking care of I and helping her to blossom into a lovely little girl. Wizz Kids is a wonderful nursery , full of staff that care”
” The girls have loved coming here and we will always be grateful to you for making their early years of childcare such a wonderful experience”
” I just can`t thank you enough for being supportive and just brilliant with K, K will miss you all, as will I”
” thank you very much for looking after me. I have made some wonderful memories here and I will miss you all very much ”
” Both G and G have loved their time with you all: they`ve developed, grown and flourished under your care and have left ready and confident to take their next steps into foundation stage 2″
We would like to say a big Thank you to all the parents who kindly donated second hand books for our stall at the summer fair. We raised £200 for Wizz Kids and will be spending the money on outdoor equipment. We really appreciate all the time and effort from the committee to help set up and run the stand and look forward to our next fundraising event
The children were invited to do an eye spy game around Sarah`s garden and look at vegetables in the ground and in the greenhouse. We had a lovely time and it was great to have a trip out of nursery. All the children enjoyed the garden and were very well behaved crossing Baslow Road and holding hands.
Reading week went really well at Wizz Kids with lots of different people volunteering to read a story with the children. A special thanks to Totley Primary who sent children over to read to the children every day . Lots of the children were once at Wizz Kids so it was a real trip down memory lane for them. We also welcomed mums, dads and grandparents to read favourite stories. We are always looking for reading volunteers so if you would like to pop in, please let us know.
The police visited Wizz Kids this week to talk with the children about road safety. The children were all very good and paid attention throughout. Thank you to the two community officers who took time to visit.
