It’s been a busy month at our new nursery on Morrill Street. Since it opened in April it has welcomed over new 30 children through its doors and we are delighted to welcome all those children and their parents to the Tiptoes family.
Gemma the manager, who has been with Tiptoes for over 8 years, said “we are loving our new nursery and enjoying so much getting to know all the children and their parents”.
Pollyanna who cares for the children moved to the Morrill St nursery from our Willerby nursery said “its been great starting at a new nursery and getting to know so many new faces and building special relationships with them all”.
All the children have settled in well and are enjoying learning new things, exploring all the new toys and tucking into the lovely food, which is prepared fresh each day on site within the nursery kitchen.
Pollyanna went on to say “the children have enjoyed so many new activities including spending a little time being chefs doing lots of baking activities” the children “enjoyed making; pizza, banana bread, apple cake and chocolate buns.”, of course everyone then enjoyed eating them !
The weather has been pretty good over the last few weeks, apart from the odd showery day so the children have loved exploring the water and bikes in our new outdoor area and even brought the play dough outside as it has been lovely and sunny.
Tiptoes puts a lot of thought into precisely where we would locate the new facility and how the nursery should facilitate learning and development. All our staff are fully qualified, yes that’s right every single member of staff. Tiptoes Morrill Street is right in the centre of a large, family-based community with young children, and is less than 10 minutes’ walk from no less than four primary schools. So, we are looking forward to developing these little minds and exploring new things that help us understand the world around us.
The Morrill street nursery is open 07:30 to 18:00 Monday to Friday and is now taking registrations for September. It fully supports the free funded hours for 2, 3 and 4 year olds with no additional fees for meals or activities.
