Many thanks to all those who responded to our Life Skills Consultation. We received three responses from parents. If you have any ideas of what you would like your children to learn or which life skills you would like them to develop, please let us know. I have attached this consultation again for your information. Currently we are consulting with our children about what they would like to learn. Our staff have also offering lots of good ideas. We will then take ALL responses and combine them in order to review our Life Skills Awards. We would also like to extend these in to our Toddler room. I will share the results of our consultation with you in due course.

Rumpole and Ziggy continue their adventure

22nd August 2017

What lucky mutts these two are! Look what they have been up to during the weekends with all of their nursery friends ………. The “real” Rumpole and Ziggy also really enjoyed their first Therapets session. We went to visit the residents at Cornhill Hospital Half-Way House. Pets and residents all had a ball and really enjoyed meeting each other. Rumpole and Ziggy especially enjoyed being the centre of attention and having so much cuddles! It was also a great way to put a smile on someone’s face and to chat to new people.
