Cranley supports Children in Need
On the 8th of November, Cranley Nursery Buckstone had a very successful Parent’s Evening. The parents evening was from 6:30pm until 8:00pm and all parents were invited to come along.
The parents were able to talk to staff, look through their children’s personal folders and have a chance to look closer at their children’s rooms. We also encouraged the parents to go and have a look at other play rooms as well. During the event we also had different areas in the nursery playrooms set up with games and activities for ‘Children in Need’.
The parent’s left lovely comments which the staff were very pleased to read and all together we raised £280.33 so far for ‘Children in Need’.
We appreciate all the parents who came out to be part of our Parent’s Evening and to the parents who contacted us to make arrangements to meet up with staff who missed out on the evening for separate discussion times.
Donation to Sick Kids Hospital
Cranley Nursery recently made a winning bid at a recent Sick Kid’s Hospital Charity event for the opportunity to switch on the Christmas lights at Jenners Department Store.
Anna Maclean decided that the best use of the prize was to donate it back to the hospital to let their chosen child switch on the lights. Cranley are really pleased to do anything we can for such a worthwhile cause and hope to be doing more with the hospital in the future.

Cranley on the Move
We are delighted our new mini bus is now up and running. The children at Buckstone had great fun trying it out for size.
The first outing is to the Royal Blind School. We aim to participate in as many local trips as possible. The nurseries pride themselves in providing children with access to a stimulating learning environment which will encourage children to explore, investigate and learn through first hand experience, trips in the community contributes to this learning.
The nursery environment along with real life experiences in the local community encourages children to develop socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually, giving them an easier transition to school. We all look forward to many fun trips out and about in the community.
