On Tuesday 13th October, Tim Murphy from Town and Country Vet in Market Harborough, popped along to see our Pre-School children, in connection with our role play corner, which this month has been turned into a vetinery surgery. Tim spent time discussing with the children the importance of taking pets and animals to the vets to make them better. Tim brought along with him two pet rats. The children throughly enjoyed touching and stroking them, and the rats didn’t seem to mind either!……….Many thanks to Tim for coming in and having a chat….

Little Angels Day Nursery recently held a Key Person Week. Parents were invited to come along and have an informal chat about their child and meet their child’s key person. Parents and staff both said they found the evening very informative and parents particulary enjoyed looking through their child’s Learning Journey, which includes written observations and photographs of their child.
Following the success of the Key Person week, the next one will be held in the Spring Term 2010
Many thanks to all the parents who attended and for taking the time to provide us with written and verbal feedback.

Well done and many thanks to everyone for taking part.
