At all our nurseries children are able to enjoy something special, at no additional cost to their parents! Below you will find information on some of the activities that take place at Bristol Childcare throughout the year. Please note, not all activities will be running at the same time, we change them according to the season, the needs of the children and to provide variety:
Run by Rhian Davis a qualified, independent language teacher based in Bristol. Rhian lived in France for 10 years and is fluent in French with an authentic accent.
At the start of each session we greet each other and introduce ourselves and at the end we say ‘thank you, goodbye. The sessions are fun and interactive using props, rhymes and songs to give the children a chance to discover the French way of life including family, celebrations, food and animals in a different language and with a variety of activities.
At the end of term parents receive a short report and dictionary of words used throughout the sessions.
The children are taught football and ball skills by Melissa, a Bristol Childcare member of staff who is an FA qualified coach.
Staff at all three nurseries share their love of yoga teaching the children age-appropriate poses, breathing exercises and the wellbeing skills yoga promotes.
Melissa runs weekly sewing groups at each nursery sharing her love of this traditional craft. Children start with weaving and build up to sewing with a needle as their skills progress.
With parents’ written permission (you will be asked to sign this on registration) our staff enjoy taking the children out of nursery for exciting and educational trips. This can be to the library, to the park, to a local shop to buy something or to post a letter. Carefully supervised trips are a wonderful way for children to learn and be stimulated by the world around them.
As part of our partnership with parents programme, parents are encouraged to visit to share their interests with the children. If you have a talent or skill you would like to share, like playing the guitar or painting, or a fascinating job that the children would love to hear about, please get in touch.
