If you wish your child to attend Little Crickets throughout this period, please do get in touch so we can make arrangements. If not, we will presume you will not be attending. We look forward to seeing everyone back in 2020! We would like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a prosperous New Year!

Parents evening

December 08, 2019

I would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents that were able to make it to the parents evening on Thursday 28 th November. It was brilliant turnout so thank you all for your involvement. We have received such great feedback based on the new way we delivered the parent consultations. As a result of this, we will continue to organise parents evening in a more relaxed environment moving away from time slots and allowing a more flexible evening. If you missed parents evening, you are more than welcome to organise a meeting with the keyworker to discuss your child’s development and next steps whenever you are next available. We will notify all parents by Baby Day’s and through the monthly newsletter with the date for the next parents evening closer to the time.

Christmas Party Workshop!

On Thursday 19 th December 2019, each room will be holding a Christmas Party Workshop filled with exciting party games and creative activities for the parents and children to take part in! The workshop will run from 16.00pm until 17.00pm. Everyone is welcome to attend the Christmas Workshop. If your child is not booked in for a session for that day but would like to attend then they must be accompanied to the Christmas Workshop with their parent/ career due to our ratios. To make it extra special, we would love it if children can wear a special outfit or Christmas jumper. We also kindly ask if parents could bring in one dish, snack or drink which the children can eat together during their Christmas workshop. If you are able to bring in a home-made dish, can it please be clearly labelled with all of the ingredients used for children who suffer with allergies.

Feb 2020 - Butterflies Room

The Butterflies Children have been caring for babies! The children have been great nurturers by feeding the babies, changing nappies, putting the babies to sleep in their role-play area. The Butterflies particularly enjoyed making porridge with the practitioners for the babies to eat. Thank you so much to Lexie’s parents who brought in Lexie’s baby brother as part of the topic. The children were really excited that he came to visit. Thank you also for bringing in an entertainer for Lexie’s birthday; this was great fun for everyone! Animals have also been a topic in the Butterflies Room. The children discovered noises made by animals and were introduced to animal habitats. Butterflies children got very creative doing animal printing and making animal masks.
For Chinese New Year the children watched an exciting video of a Chinese parade and celebrated by having a parade of their own!
