Wow, what fun we had at the Open Day on Saturday! We couldn’t have asked for a better day!
A big thank you to everyone who came along – whether it was to help out, enjoy the activities, or to see the new nursery rooms, we appreciate your support!
Special thank you’s go to Zoo Lab (www.zoolabuk.com), who came along with tarantulas, giant scorpians, snakes, rats, guinea pigs, giant African snails, giant millipedes, a Madagascan Lesser Tenrec (which looked a bit like a hedgehog!) and more! The presenter Carolanne was fantastic with the children, letting them touch if they wanted to, and telling them lots of interesting facts about the animals.
Another special thanks goes to Mrs Browns Cakes (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mrs-Browns-Cakes/205878806232404?fref=ts) who supplied lots of lovely sweet treats. They were so nice they were all gone before we new it! If you would like a celebration or birthday cake making, we can certainly recommend Mrs Brown! Parents, we have cards and leaflets in nursery should you want to pick one up 🙂
I should also mention Dan Walker from Eden Kitchens (http://www.edenkitchens.com/) who was an absolute hero in getting our brand new kitchenette fitted, as well as lots of other jobs such as boxing in radiators, fitting gates and generally fixing everything in sight! We can’t recommend Dan enough.
A final thank you to all our lovely staff who came along – we could not have done it without you! It was especially great for parents to be able to meet our newest staff members. I’m sure everyone who came would agree that Allison, Jenna and Mel did a fantastic job of organising the event and getting the rooms ready in time.
Also a special thank you to Amy, our EYP (Early Years Professional) student who came along and painted lots of faces with great skill! Thank you Amy for giving up your Saturday!
Last but not least, thank you to the parents and families who came along, as well as other professionals who came to have a look at what Muddy Boots are up to – we so appreciate your support and hope you had as fantastic a time as we did.
Phew! What a day. Can’t wait till the next one!
