National Smile Month at ABC Nursery, Hednesford

This week the children celebrated National Smile Month. They had a great time taking part in aerobics so they could “smile” more and thoroughly enjoyed the tickling session! The Super Stars and Little Stars took part in Dentist role play. They also learned which foods are good and bad for their teeth. Everyone brough in their toothbrush & paste so that they could learn how to brush properly and the importance of brushing at night. They also watched a short DVD 9courtesy of Early Vision) which showed a trip to the dentist.  They then got  messy trying to find sweet teeth in jelly – Ugh!!! They also had songs and stories about the tooth fairy – apparantly her rates have increased since we were kids?!! Hopefully we’ve all learned to take care of our teeth so they won’t be chattering in a cup ove night when we’re older!

ABC Nursery receives 5 Star rating!!

ABC Nursery today received a 5* rating from “Rate My Place” which is an improvement from the 4* awarded last year. “Rate My Place” is the “one stop shop” for determining Food Safety in Staffordshire so a 5* rating shows that the nursery has high standards in food hygiene, safety & cleaning. The nursery was congratulated by the inspector for these high standards. Our aim is obviously to maintain them and strive to reach the same “outstanding” with our next OFSTED inspection!! well done to all the staff!
