• Educational and Fun Videos!

At our nursery in Bexleyheath we are introducing our new theme for the month of March.

Themes are used to help our children play, learn and grow.

Children learn through play and repetition. Therefore we have one book, one sound, one song and one sign that we continually use to help the children’s learning.

Themes also enable our parents to continue what is being taught at our nursery in the home environment. For this reason we also upload one video per week to aid children’s development through home and nursery partnership.

Amy from our Preschool in Welling explains how to make smoothies.

Amy has created this video as a prop to help parents to do the activity at home. It’s is through this partnerships with parents that we are able to promote a home from home environment where children are excited to play, learn and grow.

Amy uses open ended questions to encourage the children to use their voice and make choices. At our nursery in Welling our team are trained to act as positive role models and encourage the children to be active learners. It is through constant praise that we build our children’s confidence.

Amy reminds the children to wash their hands. She uses supportive and encouraging language to motivate the children to recognise shapes, develop their counting skills and to promote healthy eating.

At Monkey Puzzle Welling we have the smartest children!

We love to watch the children at our nursery in Welling play, learn and grow!

Childrens Activities

At our Nursery in Bexleyheath the children are taught based on themes. These themes run for 6 weeks. Our teams then create exciting and captivating activities based on the theme and the children’s interest.

Children learn through repetition and also through partnership with parents. For this reason our themes always have one book, one song, one letter as well as one sign. This allows about parents to also follow and support the children at home.

In this video our team share the theme song for the children and parents. Our staff all have compressive understanding of Makaton to help communicate and promote understanding with the children.

As you can see our staff really enjoyed singing the song and we are sure that the children will continue to play, learn and grow!

Pirates love underpants

In our nursery at Welling our baby room team read “Pirates love underpants” and then show us how to extend the learning through various activities that can be done at home.

Reading stories is an important part of children’s development. At our nursery in Welling the children are encouraged to talk about the book and we recommend parents to do the same at home. You can also ask the children about what they see, what colours the pictures are and they can also point to their favourite pictures.

Our team allow the children to be involved with the story by imitating words and by asking open t questions to support the children’s engagement and natural inquisitiveness.

Making pirate hats can be great fun! It’s an amazing way to support children’s development by allowing our children to to touch and explore the textures of the materials. During the activities the children also learn to share and demonstrate their maths skills when making their hats as they carefully select the materials they want to use and apply the right amount of glue. We love messy play!

We also love watching our Children play, learn and grow!
