Nursery Fun Day

OnĀ 11th July we had a fun day in the Nursery and invited parents and carers along. We also had a bouncy castle, face painting, tasty snacks, a raffle and much much more! Children due to begin Nursery in the next school year were also invited along to see what the Nursery is like.












Parent Workshops

Preparing for Nursery Workshops

We have designed a series of seven workshops that have been created to support parents in their understanding of different aspects of their child's learning and development. Each workshop provided parents with ideas that they could use with their child at home. We encouraged all parents to attend two workshops prior to their child joining the St. Helen's Nursery in September.
The seven workshops on offer to parents are -


Getting Organised

This workshop provided support for parents on getting their child ready for starting at Nursery.


About Being Catholic

This workshop provided support for families on the importance of spirituality and prayer life for their child’s development.



Getting out and About

This workshop looks at how visits can provide valuable learning experiences for children's language and social skills. We considered different options on where would be good to take children on trips in the local area.


Teaching Talking

This workshop looks at how to develop your child's talking skills through high quality interactions and play.



Learning through Play

This workshop has ideas on how to engage in meaningful playful activities with ideas on toys and games to play with at home.



Setting Boundaries

This workshop provides parents with advice on supporting children as they develop their personal, social and emotional development and independence skills. It looks at why boundaries are important, how to set them and with a tool-kit of skills and ideas to use when children choose to challenge them.


Being Healthy

This workshop provided support on healthy eating, healthy lifestyles and dental hygiene. Parents were also signposted to the services available in Newham for supporting fussy eaters.


Potty Training

This workshop provided support for parents on how to toilet train children, especially if you are having difficulties in this area
