To celebrate Father's Day we invited our dads in to join us for a father’s day breakfast – it was a wonderful morning the children really enjoyed them coming in for the hour.
The Halifax Pre-school children have been doing lots of physical play outdoors using different equipment for balancing and climbing. They were helping and supporting each other too which was great to see using all the values we promote at Children's Place.
The children found lots of ladybirds on a bamboo tree in our sensory part of the garden. They were fascinated and it led to lots of amazing questions from the children and they all learnt some wonderful ladybird facts … who knew there are 5000 different species of lady birds and can live between 1-2 years!
The pre-school children have been exploring things all about winter. They’ve been experimenting with ice and how to melt it. They have been making some wonderful pictures and collages and having lots of conversations around winter, clothing they need to wear and the different weather they experience.
We are SO PROUD of the children and staff at our Halifax setting. Following on from their Overgate Hospice Reindeer Run in December they have a new total of what they have raised for the worthwhile cause..... a WHOPPING £943.60!!! Well Done Team Halifax!!!

More Halloween fun in our Toddler room! The children were filling the pumpkins with different materials such as shredded paper, leaves, pasta using the tongs. This is great for their fine motor skills and concentration and motivation to keep trying! Also great mathematics filling the objects with different shapes and sizes !
Our babies have enjoyed pumpkin carving. They all got really stuck in and loved the sensory experience of the inside of the pumpkin. They used spoons to scrape the filling out, putting it into different containers. The babies are still yet to do baking and have a sensory Halloween cauldron to look forward to. Watch this [...]
