This week at Kids Collective we invited our parents to watch their children perform 'Carols by Torchlight'. We had a fabulous turn out and we would like to thank all our parents for coming along. We thought it was a lovely event. Here is a comment from one of our parents:
I just wanted to send a note of thanks to the Kids Collective Team at APS. My husband and I really enjoyed last nights Carols by Torchlight. We could tell that your team had worked really hard with the boys and it was a lovely event so I just wanted to drop a note to say well done".

***Elmscot Day Nursery***
The children in Beech room have been very busy with lots of different activities this week. As the children are still very interested in dinosaurs we have made a dinosaur role play area in the room using sand and different materials to develop the children's imaginative play. We have also been focusing our finger gym activities around Christmas, using pegs to decorate Christmas tree's and using tree decorations to sort into different categories of size and colour. Some of the children have also been writing their own letters to post and using scissors to cut up stamps and stick onto the envelopes.

This week in Oak Room we have enjoyed lots of play in the home corner using real food. We talked about different dishes we could make using the ingredients we had and how long they would take to cook. We have also been using tweezers to pick bells out of the Christmas themed tray. This helped support the children’s use of one handed tools and also coordination as they had to work around the string going across the top of the tray. We would also like to say a big thank you to all the staff for raising £135 for the charity ‘Creating Adventures’ which supports adults with autism. Jenny from the charity came to collect the money yesterday.

On Saturday the 9th December we held our annual Elmscot Awards. This is an opportunity for us to celebrate all of the hard work put in by the Practitioners throughout the year. We’d like to thank everyone who made a nomination for the Parents choice award, the comments we received were lovely. We had lots of nominations and its fantastic to know how much you all think of the Practitioners. The overall winner of this award was Sophie Murray from Hale, below are some of the comments and reasons from the parents;
'Sophie is just fantastic. Creative, fun, clever and kind.
She is always so happy and friendly and my daughter loves seeing her in owls, she even pretends to be Sophie at home when she does role play.'
'Sophie has cared for and developed both our children whilst at Hale Day Nursery, Sophie always has a smile on her face every morning and really shows true dedication to helping and developing the children who are lucky to have her. Our son is always looking forward to seeing Sophie everyday because of the new and fun ways Sophie delivers her teaching skills
The perfect combination of professional manner and warmth'.
'Sophie always had a big smile and a positive attitude whilst being super professional at the same time'.
Thank you for taking the time to make a nomination and well done to all of the Practitioners who were shortlisted for this award.
