Flying Start @ Cornwall College Celebrate Flying Start’s 25th Birthday!

The children and staff at Flying Start @ Cornwall College had a lovely birthday party to celebrate Flora’s (Flying Start’s logo) 25th birthday as Flying Start Nurseries celebrated a huge 25 YEARS of being in business!

The children made wonderful decorations, and the staff helped by adding lots of balloons, to really decorate their party!

They all sang happy birthday with a delicious cake made by Jacqui one of the brilliant staff members.

Then they all tucked into a BIG party snack and party games with all the children, including ‘find flora’ where they had coloured in lots of little floras, they were hidden by the staff, and then the children went on a treasure hunt to find them!

Some parents came along to join in the celebrations too!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FLYING START!

Flying Start @ Cornwall College Watch Whole Life Cycle Of Frogs!

Flying Start @ Cornwall College Watch Whole Life Cycle Of Frogs!

The pre-school children at Flying Start @ Cornwall College started learning all about the lifecycle of the frog when they had a special delivery of frogspawn!

First there was just frogspawn in the tank, so the children checked it daily to observe and record the changes…

Then there were tadpoles which swam around!

Then they grew into frogs!

Which the children could lift carefully out of their tank and feel their slimy skin!

The frogs liked to sit on the rock and jump into the water!

Then it was time to set the frogs free into nature, so the staff & children went on a walk to the woods, and waved goodbye to their frogs as they released them into the stream!

Wow, what an incredible experience for all the pre-schoolers to observe all those changes from frogspawn right through to baby frogs!

The pre-school children at Flying Start @ Camborne have been really enjoying running their role play Garden Centre in the nursery!

They have been taking it in turns to be the shopkeeper and the customer: filling their baskets up and counting out their money as the customer…

…or being the shopkeeper and using the till!

 

Great work, Cornwall College!

Flying Start @ Cornwall College Host Easter Event & Are Visited By A Dinosaur!

The pre-school and toddler departments at Flying Start @ Cornwall College were excited to host their stay & play event! Parents & carers were invited in to the nursery to join in with some Easter fun!

They made Easter baskets, yummy chocolate nests, and even had a lovely picnic outside!

And then the children got very excited, as they had a visit from the Easter dinosaur! The toddler’s theme this term has been dinosaurs, and so they were delighted to see a huge one in their garden!

The dinosaur helped the children find the Easter goodies that were hidden in the garden, and they finished a great day off by having racing games with the dinosaur!

A huge thanks to all the parents & carers who came along for some Easter fun at nursery, and well done to the staff for organising a brilliant stay & play!
