The children have been working very hard watering all the vegetables every day and watching our lovely veg patch grow! So far the children have already pulled the potatoes which they then used to do potato printing!
With the help of our gardener, Robin Davies of New Look Gardens, the children even got a special gardening lesson all about potatoes! We have now planted even more veg including french beans, onions and cabbage in addition to all the other vegetables were growing! We can't wait to taste them!

Yesterday we recieved our OFSTED inspection, and after spending the whole day with us, the inspector rated our nursery as OUTSTANDING!
We are absolutely thrilled with the results of the inspection and all the staff have worked really hard over the last few years to get us to this fanstatsic level of practise! It's so great to see all our hard work is recognised!
So now..onto planning a big celebration party!!

Work has now begun on our much anticipated organic vegetable patch! A huge thank you to all the parents and staff who gave up their saturday to help with all the grafting! All the children are excited about growing their own vegetables.
The children have been practising growing tomatoes since June, and have done exceptionally well, with the plants still flowering even now! The childen have especially enjoyed tasting the tomates and using them for baking on our homemade pizzas!
Our next phase of our garden project is to level the ground, cut back some more shrubbery and build raised beds ready for planting. We hope to begin seed planting in the spring!
