Parents Go Behind The Scenes At Kiddi Caru Caldecotte
Kiddi Caru’s Caldecotte day nursery will be opening its doors to parents on Saturday 19th September and inviting them to experience the nursery’s varied activities – including sparkly shaving foam play, large scale mark making and outdoor water play - first hand.
While it is usually the children who get to have all the fun, parents are being invited in to see what happens behind the scenes at the nursery on a normal day and join in. Other activities they will be able to try following the theme of ‘learning through play’ include Numicon, shopping and hairdresser role play, puppet play, bug hunts, face painting, modelling with scented play dough and making sounds with sensory shakers.
In the nursery’s outdoor play area there will be bikes and scooters, a ball pool, construction blocks and story and sound areas. Parents and children attending will also be treated to a meal of lamb tagine with cous cous followed by coconut cookies, all freshly prepared by Kiddi Caru’s on site chef.
Dawn Delaney, Nursery Manager, said: “Our door is always open to parents but we like to have special days throughout the year when they can come in and get a real feel for what their child does day to day here.
“It’s difficult when you are so busy and sometimes literally just have time to drop your child off and go to work – their life can become a bit of a mystery. Our Experience Days give parents an insight into our typical day so that they can then discuss different activities with their child at home and feel more included.”
