Hello and a very HAPPY NEW YEAR to all!

One week in and we have all been having a great time at Stepping Stones already. It has been lovely to come back and welcome some new faces. With that in mind, it seems like a good time to remind you that after Christmas we start to get a lot busier. If you are thinking of upping your hours or know of anyone thinking about enrolling their child with us, now is the time to do so!

With the start of a new term comes the start of a new theme and fresh list of weekly topics. We have kicked off with ‘Outer Space’ which is always an absolute BLAST, if you’ll excuse the pun!

We are sharing the list of weekly topics with you now so that you have a good idea of what we will be exploring every week with the children. It also gives you the opportunity to talk to your child at home about the themes so that you can feel a part of their learning journey too. 🙂

We shall be continuing to develop the Forest Village this Saturday (18th January) and are looking for helpers from 11am. Because we plan to start inserting the willow to make the tunnel and houses we think it would be best to make this an adult only session as it is going to be a bit fiddly. The area is already looking so amazing, we can’t wait to get it ready for spring. If you can help out for an hour or two it would be massively appreciated.

Here is a little insight into what we have been up to over the last week…
