March 2010

The snow set the year off to a cold start; we welcomed visitors from the Chase Pre-School and lots of helpful information from the Dorset Information Services lady. Welcome to all our new baby members, Harry, Kiera, Pippa and baby Lucas!

We also received a cheque for almost 26 in commissiom from photographs taken by Juile Kaye from the Lemonade Studio back in October.

Leader News

Sadly from September 2010 Alison, Claire, Lara and Naomi are intending to step down in their role as Happy Nappy Leaders. Alison and Lara are returning to work part-time and Claire will be using this time to study for her Masters and Naomi is planning on running a new village group called SixpennyActive. Although this announcement seems a little premature this will allow time for Happy Nappy to find some new leaders and for us to hamd over to them. Please chat to any of the current leaders if you might be interested in taking this on or want to find out more about what is involved.

Toys and Set up

Since we took on our role as leaders back in January 2009 we made it our priority to set up a toy rota. Each week the activities set up incorporate different areas of learning e.g. physical play, fine motor skills, messy play, role play etc. In order to achieve this we have purchased a number of new toys and equipment. The toys are set up on a three weekly rota in order to maintain interest and enjoyment. We have received a number of compliments about the quality and range of toys we offer for both younger and older children. Our toys include those bought new, nearly new and donations received.

Themed Events

On Monday 8th March we will be having a Mothering Sunday craft activities - bring a photograph of you child to decorate a card if you want to!
On Monday 22nd March we will be making Easter craft activities including chocolate nests and decorating eggs.
On Monday 29th March we will have our Easter party. Wear yellow or orange or dress up; there will be party food and easter songs. A list of party food donations will be circulated nearer the time.
