Flying Start @ Penryn After-Schoolers Do Woodwork!

The after-school children at Flying Start @ Penryn have been really enjoying experimenting with the woodwork bench!

They donned all the protective gear to stay safe whilst getting stuck in with the tools and make some woodwork creations…

And then the after-schoolers helped support the pre-schoolers to join in & do some woodwork too!

Great work guys!

Flying Start @ Penryn celebrated the Royal Wedding in true style by inviting their parents and families to join them for a royal garden party! The children were preparing for it all week…

The pre-school children coloured in some lovely colouring pages of the union jack in red, blue and white!

Then they baked cupcakes, made their own crowns and wrote wedding invitations! The toddlers and babies also made crowns and decorated them!

They invited parents, carers, and grandparents to come along to the nursery to join their Royal tea party in the garden, and luckily the weather was beautiful!

     

They all enjoyed delicious sandwiches, scones with cream and jam, and a special cake!

And Harry and Meghan even made a special appearance…

Flying Start @ Penryn Toddlers Have Teddy Bear Picnic!

The toddler department at Flying Start @ Penryn hosted their very own teddy bear picnic in the toddler room!

The children all bought in their favourite teddies to nursery, and they sat down with their bear on the picnic rug, to enjoy a snack!

We are also delighted to announce that at our company training day, we launched a new online training platform for all our staff, as part of the offer from our training company TLC.

Soon, we will be opening up this training platform to offer some courses to parents & the community too!

Thank you to all of our parents & families for your understanding with the one day nursery closure – it is such a valuable day for our company, and reinforces Flying Start’s mission of ‘lifelong learning’ – for the children, but also for our amazing staff!

Flying Start @ Penryn Toddlers Make A Space Rocket!

In the toddler department at Flying Start @ Penryn, the children have been reading & enjoying the storybook ‘Whatever Next’ as their featured book for the half term…

Based on the story, they have been building and decorating their very own rocket!

The children absolutely loved covering the box in glue, then sticking shiny foil on it!

This was such a great activity that all the children worked as a team on…

And then they even added their bear and his helmet so they     could go to the moon!

Flying Start @ Penryn Celebrate St. Piran’s Day Making Pasties!

Flying Start @ Penryn Celebrate St. Piran’s Day Making Pasties!

The children at Flying Start @ Penryn were very proud to celebrate St. Piran’s Day!

The staff set up all the ingredients and equipment so that the children could make pasties…

They rolled out the dough, and put the vegetables and meat inside, before carefully sealing them up, to make their very own pasties!

The staff helped put them in the oven, and later when they had cooled, the children got to eat them & take them home.

Delicious!

  

Childcare Funding 2017

Are you confused about whether you will qualify for 30 hours funding, or are childcare tax credits better for you ? Will the new tax-free childcare scheme be relevant ??

There are lots of new initiatives for getting free or funded childcare, but its confusing.

This Government website makes it easy to understand and tells you, what you are eligible for and what you need to know.

Flying Start will be running Parents Information Evenings soon too…..
