Kiddi Caru’s Peterborough day nursery is opening its doors to existing and prospective parents on Saturday 25th April from 10.30 until 1.00pm inviting them to experience the nursery’s varied activities – including tent play and cooking – first hand.
While it is usually the children who get to have all the fun, parents are being invited in to see what happens behind the scenes at the nursery on a normal day and join in, and there are plenty of activities for them to choose from.
For the under 2s there will be musical instruments, sand play, sensory blocks, shredded paper, oats and animals (farm scene), treasure basket play, sensory painting activity, cornflakes and pots and pans.
For the over 2s there will be 3D shape drawing, sand and powder paint with trucks to make marks, coloured water and dinosaurs, duplo building, dolls house and multicultural people and hairdresser play.
The pre-school children will enjoy Sealife in water play, caring for babies, mark making with paints and ice, playdough and shapes, games on the PC and letter moulds in sand.
There will also be garden activities including chalking roads for the bikes to drive along, balancing on the crates and wooden planks, climbing wall, story books and a café in the house. In addition meals of Cottage Pie, Sweet and Sour Chicken and Rice or Macaroni Cheese and Tomato followed by either Yogurt and fruit or Apple Pie and Custard freshly prepared by Kiddi Caru’s on site chef will be provided.
Emma Auston, Nursery Manager, said: “Our door is always open to parents but we like to have special days throughout the year when they can come in and get a real feel for what their child does day to day here. It’s difficult when you are so busy and sometimes literally just have time to drop your child off and go to work – their life can become a bit of a mystery. Our Experience Days give parents an insight into our typical day so that they can then discuss different activities with their child at home and feel more included.”
