Our Activities & Extras

Honest Nursery offers a wide range of exceptional activities and opportunities and encourages children to participate in these experiences to help them build their confidence and develop their skills. 

Caterpillar Music

Our Caterpillar music classes teach our children, music and movement for all ages. These classes are an opportunity for your child to learn through fun, musical play.

Swimming

We help our children to become confident individuals and successful learners by providing swimming lessons.  These promote health and well-being in early years.

Nursery Animals

We have pet fish that the children enjoy caring for, observing and feeding during the day. Taking care of animals provides our children with a great sense of responsibility whilst developing empathy and social skills. Caring for animals can be a very calming and relaxing experience for children as well as an opportunity to assess risk. This provides many vital learning opportunities and skills that supports children’s transition to school and adult life. 

Nursery Teacher

We are lucky to have our own Nursery Teachers who work closely with our children and their key workers to ensure that children make good progress within all aspects of their development in readiness for school. 

Nursery Library 

We believe that reading should be lots of fun so we run a mini library service to encourage children to share their favourite stories with their parents, and to help busy parents keep the bookshelf interesting at home!

Sign Language 

Our nursery staff share their sign language skills with children at nursery. The skill of signing from an early age benefits all children as it can ease frustration for children who are not yet talking, support social interaction and communication, as well as develop fine motor skills that support writing later on. 

Community Outings

Our nursery enjoys great ties with our local community and we are often out and about visiting local sights and getting involved in events. 

Graduation

We celebrate the big move to primary school with a special graduation ceremony each year—caps, gowns, the works! 

Christmas Show

We celebrate Christmas by putting on a wonderful Christmas show for friends and family each year. There’s always much excitement in preparing for the show as we learn songs and organised our special dress ups. 

Fundraising Activities 

Taking part in fundraising activities helps children to learn about others that are less fortunate than themselves and understand how we can help them. Fundraising events are good fun and are a great way to get children, families and communities together. We are currently fundraising for Children’s First.
