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.

Join us on Saturday 1st December from 11:00am for the Broadstone Christmas Parade…

Broadstone Christmas Parade was started in 1969 by Broadstone Chamber of Trade and has run every year since. All the local groups including Play Schools, Schools, Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts parade in Christmas themed costumes though the Broadway all lead by Father Christmas. There are also marching bands, dance groups and majorettes.

Father Christmas then goes to his grotto outside Broadstone Methodist Church and in a novel twist receives presents from children to give to the Ted Webster Family Center.

After the parade the Methodist Church will be showing a free family film and there will be homemade mince pies and drinks available throughout the event.

Alongside the parade we have a Christmas Market, selling Christmas gifts, tombolas, and all sorts.

There is a window competition, details of which can be found in the Parade program or picked up from Molly’s cafe in the Broadway.

Look out for offers in the local shops too, there will be mulled wine, a BBQ from the butcher and other promotions on for the day. 11.00 till dusk.

Loving your display on your frontage, thank you

So pleased that these children are being taught that as an early age. Everyone needs to remember if it wasn’t for these brave men we wouldn’t have the country we have today.

Remember, Remember the 5th of November.

Firework safety, the children at Broadstone Christian Nursery would like to share the following advice…

• Keep away from fireworks because they are hot.
• Stay with daddy, mummy or a grown up
• Keep away from the bonfire

Broadstone Christian Nursery are proud to announce that our Nursery has achieved the following GLD result: Setting’s children GLD is 93.3%

When children are 5, at the end of their reception year in school, an assessment of learning and development is undertaken against specified Early Learning Goals (ELGs). Teachers make an assessment for every child’s learning attainment against each of the 17 ELGs categorised at 3 judgements: “emerging”, “expected” and “exceeding”.

In the current EYFSP, children are viewed as having reached a Good Level of Development (GLD) at the end of the EYFS if they achieve at least the “expected” level in the three primary ELGs i.e. personal, social and emotional: physical; and communication and language development, as well as in the specific areas of mathematics and literacy.

Parent evaluations transition to school October 2018...

Setting of the Nursery - Established since 1991 Broadstone Christian Nursery is a small purpose built nursery with an adjoining outdoor environment.

Broadstone Christian Nursery is a free flow environment which enables children to move freely indoors and outdoors. The Early Years Research suggests this benefits the child’s development by:

• Encouraging greater independence
• Enabling progress at own pace
• Enhancing decision making
• Developing physical well being
• Learning about different environments

New beginnings – off to school

Your 4 year old is starting on a new exciting journey. Full of mixed emotions for both child and parent. Moving onto a new stage in their life, growing up, becoming more independent and making their own friends.

Try not to show your child that you are anxious or upset about them starting school (at least not in front of them).
Be positive, pre-empt any anxieties by helping them to be independent and settle quickly:-

1. Talking about their new school, their teacher, their friends (new and old) as well as the exciting things they will be doing and learning – create positive feelings
2. Let your children practise putting on their new uniforms. Easy items to put on and take off by themselves e.g. velcro shoes
3. Label all your child’s items – show your child their labels and where they are on the items
4. Recognise own name in print
5. Practice using a knife and fork to eat hot lunches with. Opening their own lunch boxes and it’s contents
6. Teach them to be confident to ask for the toilet and be able to wipe themselves properly, washing and drying hands afterwards
7. Have a good bedtime routine so they are not tired for school.
8. Read stories to them and share books
9. Understand sharing, listening and being quiet for a short time
10. Encourage your child to tidy up their toys after them

Children will be adjusting to new routines so they will be very tired to begin with, even if they have been attending a childcare setting – tiredness may affect their behaviour to begin with. Be patient they will need reassurance and love.
