Each year the Nursery allows new parents to participate in a range of craft activities whilst their young children settle into the classrooms. This way the mums & dads have something to take their mind off the transition whilst being on hand if their child becomes too upset.
This is the second year ‘ve been involved in this simple yet very effective activity. It works a treat with parents commenting on the benefits to well being at what can be a trying time.
The quality of creative response from the parents was once again exceptional and participants produced some beautiful and decorative results. Some had the opportunity to try their hand at the potter’s wheel, describing their experience as a ‘dream come true’!
After 1/2 term I’ll be in the classroom working with the children, identifying their interests and joining in their journey.
