I found this article extremely interesting. It is so important that, as childminders, we think twice before reaching for the Calpol. We are required to record any medicines we administer and to have consent from parents for doing so.
So sad to see that so many Sure Start centres are having to close due to cuts. They provide a vital lifeline to some families in need providing parents with information and advice about health, education, childcare and employment, particularly in disadvantaged areas.
Last week, the children were busy making these terrific tiaras! I adapted the activity slightly depending on their age which ranges from 18 months to 6 years old. They all loved the activity and wore their fantastic creations with pride!
