Spring and new life is upon us!
Wonderful spring is upon us, were the wonder of life for most animals begins. The staff team and I at cherubins are over joyed to inform our families that the children will be welcoming a new furry friend, a little bouncing bunny Rabbit from next week(29th March 2021).
As you can Imagine the children are very excited for the new arrival and have been coming up with a variety of names for the little one. The children are looking foward to caring and getting to know their furry friend.
The bunny will be placed outside in the garden in a gated area so that the children will be supervised at all times when caring and handling their furry friend. Over the coming weeks we are hoping to add to our new extended animal family, to encourage children to build and extend on their learning and devlopment. "Can you guess what we will be getting next??"
As part of the 'EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE' guildlines for children learning and development, there is an emphasis on Understanding the world.
