Dear Parents / Carers,
Perhaps during lockdown you would like to take up a new hobbie and extend your cooking skills. Southall Community Alliance are hosting some healthy cooking workshops via Zoom that might help you get started.
Please see the flyer below for more information.
Have a lovely weekend
Dear Parents and Carers,
I am sure by now that you would have heard the Prime Ministers announcement regarding a four week lockdown in England. During this lockdown, schools, nurseries and childcare are required to remain open. Greenfields already has a comprehensive risk assessment, with a number of measures in place to ensure that the risk of transmission of Covid 19 is reduced as much as possible.
We will be reviewing the official guidance as it is published this week and will keep you informed of any changes that we plan to make.
Greenfields will be open this week as normal so please do bring your children in. If you are concerned please come and speak to me when you are dropping off or picking up your child.
please see the following message from Ealing Public Health.
At a time when the coronavirus rates continue to rise in London, the trick or treat Halloween tradition with many children ringing on the same doorbells and rummaging in the same bowl of sweets is an unnecessary risk to take.
It is possible to transfer the virus on sweet wrappers etc as these are very difficult to clean and the virus can remain on surfaces such as door knockers and bells for up to three days – potentially longer.
Instead of going from door to door consider one of the fun and safe alternatives such as family pumpkins hunts.
Please consider vulnerable residents who may be particularly anxious at this time and alarmed by repeated knocks on their door.
However you celebrate Halloween remember you must never be with more than 6 people outside, and only be inside with the people you live with or those in your support bubble.
We wish you all a happy and safe half term.
Public Health Ealing
Dear Parents and Carers,
Please see below the latest risk assessments for centre re-opening in September. We look forward to welcoming you back and if you need any further information please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone: 020 8813 8079.
Just in case you have missed our Bucket Time and Attention Builder activities we have copied them all below so that you can access them all in one place.
We hope you have found these useful.
You might remember that a few weeks ago Paula shared some Bucket Time activities with you, Bucket Time is particularly for children who have social and communication difficulties as it helps to improve their joint attention skills.
This week Paula is going to be sharing some Attention Building activities. In the Early Intervention Group, we begin our group time sessions with a Bucket and then follow on with the Attention Builder. The Attention Builder will extend your child's concentration time and joint attention skills.
Paula will demonstrate the activities so that you can watch with your child and some of them you may like to do again yourself with your child at home.
Good morning everyone,
If you have children that have social communication difficulties you may have heard your keyworker talking about 'bucket time'. Bucket time is an activity that we do everyday with some of the children at nursery and this week Paula will be sharing some videos with you to help you do bucket time at home with your children.
These videos are for you to watch each day with your child. Your child will enjoy the familiar activity with Paula and you can learn how to do it so that next week you can do it by yourself with your child.
We hope you find them useful, here is bucket number one.
We will be back tomorrow with bucket number two.
Read all about the Nursery World Awards received by Ealing nurseries in the Around Ealing Article below.
Greenfields was awarded Nursery of the Year as well as the award for Early Years in Schools.
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.
The Centre has won an award in celebration of the work that is being done to deliver the Bookstart Programme.
'The Centre has carefully thought through how best to use the resources and sessions availiable with Bookstart Corner, making sure that it is delivered in a way that is comfortable for local families, which come from many different ethnicities and cultural backgrounds'.
