Visits and Visitors

We use the curriculum to enhance and broaden the experiences and opportunities available to children in our setting. We provide a wide range of exciting and stimulating activities for children, often building on their own interests. Some examples include; Forest Schools sessions; Orchard exploration; Trips offsite; and visitors to  the setting.  Below are some examples of visitors, events and trips experienced by our children:


Every year children in F1 have the opportunity to visit Chester Zoo with a parent / carer. Below are some photographs from our most recent trip.

Seacombe Family Hub supported Relax Kids sessions for our F1 children this year. The children and staff enjoyed joining in with all the fun activities and learned some new strategies to help with self regulation. For example: we used feathers to support us in taking deep breaths - watching as the feathers moved when we breathed out. For more information on Relax Kids please visit their website

The nursery welcomes parents and carers to attend workshops where they can find out more about how their children learn and also about other cultures and celebrations. Here are some photographs from an Eid craft workshop.

Every year we invite 'The Creepy Crawly Show' to share the story of 'Oliver's Animal Adventures - the windy day'. As the story progresses children are introduced to the various animals that appear throughout the story, including: a tarantula, a Californian king snake, a boa constrictor, a giant African land snail, a tenrec, a barn owl, a bearded dragon and a leopard gecko. The sessions are fully interactive and children and staff are able to touch and hold the animals, carefully following the handler's instructions.

Children in F1 have been excited to watch the development of live caterpillars over time. Children were able to examine the little caterpillars in individual pots and then over the course of 2 weeks they watched as the caterpillars grew in size and then eventually created cocoons around themselves. When this happened, the cocoons were transferred into a butterfly net. After a week or so, butterflies began to emerge from the cocoons and had access to sugar water and fruit. It has been amazing to be able to watch a lifecycle in action and we were all excited to release the butterflies into the nursery garden.

Parents, children and staff had a lovely day out at the beach this year. Despite the mixed weather, everyone had a great time! As well as exploring the environment and playing with their friends, children could access activities including: natural mark-making; races; bean bag throwing; beach limbo; beach yoga; and the outright favourite -sand castle building! After a picnic lunch, families were able to engage in activities at Vale Park.
