The toddler department at Flying Start @ Redruth have been working on practising their speech!
They’ve been using their traffic light system, to help them practice their speech!
They’ve also been using their themed ‘chatty box’, which they pick an item out of and then describe it and chat about it to their friends in circle time!
Great work, Redruth!

Flying Start @ Redruth Have A Visit From A Doctor!

Flying Start @ Redruth Have A Visit From A Doctor!

The children at Flying Start @ Redruth had a special visit from a Doctor, who came to chat to them all about his job and how he helps people!

One of the parents of the nurseries is a doctor, and agreed to come in and speak to the children, as part of their ongoing learning about people who help us.

He brought along some interesting medical equipment, and some things the children were even allowed to have a go with! He also talked to the children all about his job and how many people he helps all of the time… the children were really impressed!

Thank you to this amazing parent for coming in and running such a special, informative session for the children!

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…..
