Flying Start Nurseries Host Annual Training Day For Entire Company!

Flying Start Nurseries are proud to have hosted another amazing annual company training day, with over 120 staff attending, from all of our nurseries, in our 25th year of business!

It is a unique chance to bring all of our staff together to celebrate the achievements of the last year, and train them in new and specialist areas to improve & excel even more! The theme of this year’s training day was ‘Lifelong Learning with TLC’, and Flying Start were delighted to host the day at a new venue – at the cinema in Newquay!

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!

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!

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…..
