A look back at 2018: Halloween

Things have been so busy since my son started school in September and as I adjusted to life as a school mum! So I wanted to take some time to have a little look back at what we have enjoyed here at Aston Childcare over the past few months.

First up, Halloween.

We had great fun making tissue paper plate pumpkins complete with cutouts of the kids hands. We enjoyed colouring in lots of ghoulish characters and the children enjoyed a Halloween themed snack after school. Finally, the children got a head start on their trick-or-treating with a Halloween goodie bag to take home.

 

 

Keeping children active

An interesting piece in the news today that states that one in three children are ‘not active enough’

Here at Aston Childcare, I take the children to parks and soft plays to keep them active. From about the age of 3 the children all walk on our daily school runs. We also try and make good use of our garden all year round. I ensure babies have lots of space to crawl and walk and I provide safe walkers on which to practice their walking, ball pits and dance mats all to encourage activity and movement.
