The Government is introducing new ways to try and help support parents with childcare costs.
They have finally launched their 'Childcare Choices' website, which parents can visit to find out more information about Tax Free Childcare and the 30 hours funding entitlements.

With another bank holiday coming up - we thought we'd suggest a few fun food recipes for you to try with your tiny tots this bank holiday! A few of them we already do at nursery so your little ones may be teaching you a few things ;)
EASY PEASY PIZZAS
Who has got time to roll dough these days?! (although that would be very fun to do with your little ones if you have a bit more time!), but if you're rushing around but still want to have fun making a speedy lunch, which not buy a plain base from the local supermarket and load it with tomato puree, cheese and some colourful peppers and sweetcorn! You could even make some smiley face pizzas out of the veg! This is great for motor skills and hand/eye coordination - not to mention, yummy!!!
Inspired by BBQ season, how about making some fresh and colourful salad skewers
These are just two of our favourites, but loads more ideas can be found on this website:
HAPPY BANK HOLIDAY!
The children in Platform Room are very proud to welcome the latest little addition to their room.... 'Monster' the hamster!!
We are very excited about Monster, we are already totally besotted with her - she has a lovely new home on one of the shelves in Platform Room, and the children have already been enjoying watching her run around in her wheel, and have helped Emma and Jess clean out her super duper 'pod', making her bed fluffy and comfortable.
We are enjoying learning about her and making sure she has lots of water to drink and food to eat.
We will post some pictures of her very soon!
