Children’s food preferences and eating habits are formed early in life and the time that they spend in early years settings provides an ideal opportunity to shape healthy behaviours. Broadstone Christian Nursery work closely with CaterFirst who supply the children's hot lunches. The children love the opportunity to visit the allotment to enhance their understanding of where their lunches come from and to see the fresh fruit and vegetables growing. They love nothing more than getting hands on at the allotment and developing their gardening skills! In preparation for Harvest Festival we will be enhancing the children's learning and giving thanks for successful crops.

This September the new Ofsted Inspection Framework comes into force. Broadstone Christian Nursery was approached by the South West Senior HMI to be a pilot setting for them. Although no formal report the experience was invaluable and so was the feedback.

Quality of Education, Personal Development, Behaviour and Attitudes are key areas in Ofsted. Our feedback was very positive:

“High Quality Inclusive Practice, high expectations for behaviour, strong key persons who know the children very well, activities linked to child’s interest and provide rich experiences that broaden their knowledge and skills. Children are confident, independent, eager, motivated, happy, secure and take pride in their achievements. The impact of what we do at the nursery has a positive effect on the children and families.”

2019 Graduates

It is once again that time of year when we have to say not farewell but keep in touch to all our school leavers who are moving onto school in September. Come back and see us and tell us how you are getting on – it’s always nice to know.

We will miss you all and feel privileged to have been part of their Early Educational years and helping to develop skills for life.

We are all so proud of their achievements and know that the children will do well as they have a real ‘thirst’ for learning.

Transition to school isn’t always easy as every child is different and the support they need is too. Visits to school, teachers coming into nursery, stories about school, photos of their new environment, school uniforms to dress up in plus more all go to help make the transition a little smoother.

Good luck class of 2019!

Physical activity guidelines for EARLY YEARS (UNDER 5s) state that children of pre-school age who are capable of walking unaided should be physically active daily for at least 180 minutes (3 hours), spread throughout the day.

Our upcoming annual Sports Day will include lots of the main activities that are encouraged like running, skipping, jumping and chasing.

So what are the benefits of being active for at least 180 minutes each day?

- Improves cardiovascular health
- Contributes to a healthy weight
- Improves bone health
- Supports learning of social skills
- Develops movement and co-ordination

Physical development involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Guidance from the Chief Medical Office (CMO) on how much physical activity people should be doing can be found here: www.gov.uk/government/publications/uk-physical-activity-guidelines

Today is National Sunglasses Day

Children are exposed to more annual sun exposure than adults because many of their activities are outdoor-based, including school breaks, PE and playtime. This increased exposure to sunlight also increases children’s exposure to damaging ultraviolet (UV) light – an invisible, electromagnetic radiation emitted by the sun. Children’s eyes differ from adults’ in that children’s ocular lenses cannot filter UV light and prevent it from reaching their retinas as effectively as can adults’ ocular lenses. This results in children’s retinas being exposed to more UV light and susceptible to retinal damage if they are not adequately protected.

Excessive exposure to UV light can lead to both short-term and long-term eye problems. Protect their eyes from damaging rays! #NationalSunglassesDay find out more by visiting: nationalsunglassesday.com/sunglasses/uv-and-children/
Don't forget to get your child's sight tested regularly - eye tests for children are free!

If you want to teach children how to cross the road you can use the Green Cross Code but how do you help children stay safe from abuse?

The Talk PANTS campaign, run by the NSPCC, enables parents and carers of 4-11 year olds to begin this conversation.

Many local schools and early years settings will also be teaching the PANTS message with the help of resources based around a friendly dinosaur called Pantosaurus.

The key messages are:

• Privates are private
• Always remember your body belongs to you
• No means no
• Talk about secrets that upset you
• Speak up, someone can help

You can also access resources and more information at www.nspcc.org.uk which includes a Pantosaurus sing-along video and activity pack.

Broadstone Christian Nursery are committed to safe guarding our children and work closely with parents of our children to offer support and guidance in all aspects of life. If you would like to find out more about our Policies and Procedures, please visit our website: www.broadstonechristiannursery.com.

In response to the Momo challenge that everyone is talking about National Online Safety have provided a Momo guide for parents and carers with tips to better monitor online activity and safety: bit.ly/2UafqTj.Over the last few days there has been an explosion of media reports concerning the Momo challenge which is leading young people to undertake dangerous challenges which include self-harm and suicide.

Momo challenge is played over social media platforms including WhatsApp, Facebook and YouTube where users contact a person to get challenges given to them. The challenge is being associated with a creepy looking character which pops up on YouTube videos including YouTube Kids.

Numerous reports in the press have warned parents that the Momo 'Challenge' is now appearing in Fortnight and Peppa Pig YouTube videos. Momo is a meme that targets young children on social media encouraging them to add a contact, on a messaging platform, or online games and then sends children graphic images and messages.

Here at Broadstone Christian Nursery we are constantly thinking of new ideas and ventures for the children to enable them to expand their knowledge, skills and development. This week Alison from the RSPB visited us. She read the children a story about a Ladybird who couldn't find her home. She met a Bee, a Woodlouse and an Pond Skater. The children went outside to look for wildlife in the garden with Alison and found a Slug, a Woodlouse and a Centipede that they looked at through a magnifying glass. It's activities like this that enrich their minds.

Broadstone Christian Nursery is a small ‘family’ childcare setting where we strive to promote Christian values as part of our everyday life.

Caring - showing concern for others, being considerate, kind, helpful and compassionate. Sharing - waiting and taking turns, beginning to accept the needs of others.
Love - love for each other, for the family and the wider community. Respect - recognising that we are all different and valuing diversity.

These are achieved through our staff, who are excellent role models, and build strong relationships with the children to ensure they feel valued and loved. Working in partnership with parents, realistic expectations are set for the children by offering a range of opportunities and experiences.

Alongside our Christian ethos we also promote the British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faith and cultures.

Everyone is welcome so please ring us on 01202 601748 to make an appointment to come and visit us.
