Although we were very sad to not have the children in our Nursery during the lockdown, Duchess kept in touch with our children. On a very successful zoom call with a group of children and parents, we read Supertato (a big favourite!) and the children chose some songs to sing, such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and If You’re Happy and You Know It Clap Your Hands. Also in lockdown, staff recorded messages on video saying hello and read stories for parents to play back. To help parents at home, activity plans were written and sent to them via the family app, for example a SpaceShip activity, vegetable printing, yoga and a playdough instruction video.
