Our children are busy all year around and our location on the University campus means that we can take advantage of many different activities and events.
The Nursery is very lucky to be situated on campus and we have access to the Students' Union building alongside all the amenities available within the University.
Here are some of the activities that our nursery children have enjoyed.
Red Nose Day
Every year the University kindly hands over the Paula Radcliffe Athletics Stadium located just behind the nursery for the afternoon. This is a very popular event for the children, parents, staff and the Students' Union's Action volunteers.
Exploring the Fountain
The children just love the University's iconic fountain - situated close to the Nursery on the Hazlerigg Rutland lawn - and it is a regular stop on the campus walks.
Every autumn the University organises a fruit forage to collect apples from the many fruit trees on University land. The fruit forage has become an annual event as part of our curriculum to promote a healthy lifestyle. We join the student and staff landscaping and gardening society for a harvesting walk, everyone is welcome including parents and grandparents.
Leavers Play and Graduation
In June the children leaving to join school in September perform "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" on the stage in Room 1 of the Students' Union. After the play all the children receive a cerficate to remember their time with us. Everyone is invited but for those who can't make it a dvd is available.
Rememberance Service at the Fountain
All the nursery children visit the fountain to look at the display, and we take our older children to the Rememberance service at the fountain, the children proudly wear the poppies they have made.
