"Children are unique and holistic learners, thriving within environments that support their individual and diverse motivations, interests and needs."
𝗕𝗶𝗿𝘁𝗵 𝘁𝗼 𝟱 𝗠𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿𝘀

At Hawthorn House we are continually monitoring and adapting our classroom, environments and learning opportunities to meet the needs of the children.
We have been spending lots of time recently out in the community, therefore teaching the children the importance of Safety on the Road has been a priority and big interest to the children!

There are many benefits of children playing with playdough including:
🔴 Developing Fine Motor Skills
🟠 It is calming for children
🟡 It encourages creativity
🟢 It enhances hand–eye coordination
🔵 It improves social skills
🟣 It supports Numeracy and literacy

This is why at Hawthorn House we value the use of playdough and always have freshly made playdough available to the children in all rooms at all times.
Here at the nursery we make our own playdough, this way we can choose our own, colours fragrances and textures each time as well as being environmentally friendly using all natural and edible ingredients! ♻️🌿

Did you know that Glitter is made from aluminium and plastic and is classed as a Microplastics which is very problematic for the environment?

Studies have shown that glitter can become airborne and literally come down in the rain, landing in the sea and in the environment!

Today is Earth Day, a day to show your support for protecting the environment, so we thought today would be a great day to tell you that we are no longer using Glitter in any of our Forest House Nurseries! There are many alternatives to glitter which we can use in the nursery so that the children can still enjoy messy play and creative activities!

We are part of the Eco Schools Committee and creating a more eco friendly nursery is a big part if our plans! Removing glitter is just one of the many ways that we are working towards our eco schools award!

When serving food to babies and young children there are several things to consider with certain foods.

Fruit and Vegetables
🍇Small Fruits - ensure to cut all small and especially rounds fruit in to quarters
🍉Large Fruit - cut into slices instead of chunks
🍎Remove all pips and stones
🥕Vegetables - cut in to narrow batons, for younger children mashing or grating instead
🍊Remove the skin from all fruit and vegetables

Meat and Fish
🌭Sausages - always cut in half length ways, also you can peel off the skin to make them easier to chew and swallow.
🍖Remove all bones from meat or fish and cut into strips as thinly as possible. Also you should remove any skin and fat to make it easier to swallow

🧀 Grate or cut cheese in to strips rather than chunks

Nuts and Seeds
🥜Nuts should not be served to children under 5 years old.
When Serving Nuts or Seeds, ensure to grate or chop

🍞If not chewed properly, white bread can form a ball shape with a dough-like texture in the throat.
Try toasting white bread, or use brown bread instead. Bread, chapatis, naan bread and other breads should be cut into narrow strips.
