The time of year for Wimbledon and sunshine !

As I write, it’s a gorgeous warm, sunny day. Let’s hope the summer is lovely for us all. Don’t forget the sun hats and sun cream !

Our Channings babies and children have been busy with so many indoor and outdoor activities. Our nursery managers have put some excellent photographs on Facebook of our babies and children having a lovely time, playing, exploring and learning. I hope you enjoy seeing them all.

As the year moves on, it is leavers’ party time for the pre-School children. Tempest photographers took individual graduation photographs and a group party themed photo to celebrate their years with us and their exciting times ahead. So many emotions, sad and happy. For children, parents and staff.  Such bonds are built up and we see so much development in each child. We all wish our leavers a very happy and successful next stage in their lives.  We welcome news and visits any time. We love to know how our little children are doing. You can always message us on Facebook.

We hope that you’re finding the nursery newsletters useful and informative.

We have continued to make improvements across our nurseries.

Werneth has a fabulous decking which gives babies and toddlers a beautiful outside space. It’s great when it’s drizzling as it’s covered and great when it’s too sunny as it’s in the shade.

Rochdale now has the outside climbing and play areas with sweet little wooden fences. We are currently working on the ‘growing shed’ and the planted areas.  We have a new  decked area for the babies, it’s very stylish and cute.  Rochdale nursery also have a wooden gated outside space to bring the outside inside. Rochdale has also been undergoing some developments inside the nursery too. During the summer these will continue. We have so many children and babies there, we need more efficient spaces.

We have had some management changes as a result of happy events.   Janine, at Chadderton Way nursery, left us to have a baby daughter and Emma, at Rochdale nursery, left us to have a baby son. Both are on maternity leave and enjoying their new additions. We therefore had to make a few changes. Jodie moved to Chadderton Way, Anne-Marie is now manager at Rochdale, Claire is manager of Werneth, Mel is now manager at Newhey, no changes at Royton, Kathryn is still with us !  Quite a few of our nursery assistants are expecting babies too, we wish everyone every happiness. Phew so many changes!

We must thank all of our parents, we have had several fund raising events, especially Pink Day for Manchester Arena. Excellent effort with fabulous outfits and raising so much money. Thank you.

I think that’s enough news for now.


Happy summer to you all
