Staffing Update

20th June 2019

Huge congratulations to Chloe and Taylor who have recently completed their SVQ childcare qualification. They are now fully qualified practitioners. Great achievement! Congratulations also to Lisa. Lisa has just qualified as a Primary School Teacher. Lisa will be leaving us in July. She has secured a job at Brimmond Primary School and will teach a P3 class. We are absolutely thrilled for Lisa. She has been studying for this post graduate qualification whilst working with us. This has been a HUGE amount of work and although we will REALLY, REALLY miss her, we are thrilled for her. Brimmond School are very lucky to have you Lisa. Good luck and keep in touch. You have been a huge asset to KingsWellies! Good luck also to Lynsey who left us recently. Lyndsey has gone to take up a role with the NHS. Best wishes.

Goodbye Rumps

10th April 2019

We are very, very sad to let everyone know that Rumpole passed away recently. He was a HUGE part of our KingsWellies family and will be very sadly missed. Rumpole was such a character, always up to something! He LOVED coming to the nursery and LOVED being cuddled and petted by the children. He was also a Therapet for 3 years and really brought a lot of joy and laughs to the people around him. He was a really, really good boy and was best buddies with Ziggy.

Health and Wellbeing curriculum

10th April 2019

We are going to be extremely busy promoting our Health and Wellbeing curriculum. Things have been going really well this week so far in Health Month! We’ve made lots of smoothies, made healthy home bakes and have been working hard in our new PE classes. We also loved our healthy picnic at Hazlehead Park. Charley is VERY keen to start our own Wellies football team and Molly will be starting dancing classes with our older children soon. She will focus on jazz, ballet and modern dance. Exciting stuff! For more ideas on what you can do with your child at home to promote health and happiness, you can download lots of activity guides from www.ndna.org.uk/healthy
