Please enjoy our latest Nursery World Article which celebrates the story of buidling 'Water Donkey' and our adventure along the canal to Bixley Triangle.
Nursery World was established in 1925 to inform the Early Years Sector and now has a current subscription readership of 14,000. It is a wonderful recognition of our good practise in collaboration with the University of the Arts London to have our work regularly published in Nursery World.
Our children have been working hard in the community again, planting trees in Montague Waye along with pupils from Clifton Primary School and Featherstone High School. Activities like these will help children to develop a connection with nature and their community and develop their sense of responsibility for caring for our environment. Please take the time to enjoy some photographs of the activity in our gallery and follow the link below to read the whole story.

As the year comes to a close, we wanted to thank Greenfields Children’s Centre so much for donating to Ealing Foodbank in 2015; without your generosity, our important work would simply not be possible.
To give you an idea of the numbers behind our five cafes:
As we currently distribute around 800 kilos of food per week, it is important that we keep our stocks up, so any future donations would be much appreciated. You can keep up with our work at our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/EalingFoodbank
If you have any nursery clothes at home, please return them as soon as possible. If you have any old children’s clothes to donate we would like to hear from you.
