Improving Learning in Your Children’s Nursery

As a nursery, parents place their trust in you to provide care and attention for their child. Your role is an important one, with evidence that early years education is critical in the development of children. This means not only providing a safe and caring environment, but one that nurtures and educates, creating an ethos that encourages children, irrespective of their likes and dislikes or ability.

Losing Your-self to Mother-hood?

When you enter motherhood, you have to wave goodbye to some of the prized pre-baby experiences. Regular date nights, daily showers and lay-ins past 7 am are just a few. However, it is important to remember that you are still a person and you still deserve you time. It is true that as a mum, you are responsible for your child’s well-being, but that doesn’t mean deserting your own. Give yourself that permission; you don’t need it from anyone else.

Getting Everyone Ready for a Special Day Out

We love our family days out and activities. They are a great way to spend some quality time together. Of course, the car journey can be a bit stressful, at least on the way there, but it is definitely worth the effort. If you have a good day, the chances are the kids will be far quieter on the journey home because they are worn out. We’ve found that the key to having a good family day out is preparation.

Cirque Du Soleil Varekai Review

I had seen Cirque Du Soleil on television before and always thought they were fabulous. When I was asked if I would like to go and see Cirque Du Soleil Varekai Tales of The Forest at the Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham I was very excited! I had an idea of what to expect after seeing them on screen but I had no idea how amazing it would be in ‘real life’.  Cirque Du Soleil transported us to the depths of the [click here to read on]
