Although I can’t get a Spring edition out to you this year, I wanted to share those groups and activities that are back on for your little ones over the next few weeks.
From 29 March outdoor sports facilities such as tennis or basketball courts and golf will reopen. Organised children’s sport, such as grassroots football, can also return.
This means across Nottingham many of your favourite groups can re-start outside, including: Little Wickets, (which is also running and Easter sports camp), Little Kickers Nottingham and Rugby Tots.
Highfields Adventure Golf and Crazy Putt Adventure Golf will both reopen on 2 April.
On 12 April the most important thing to note is we’ll be able to get our hair cut!! As well as looking and feeling much better about ourselves, we’ll also find it much easier to keep our little ones busy with the opening of libraries and community centres, the re-start of swimming lessons, organised children’s activities and our favourite farm parks like Manor Farm and Floralands and zoos.
Many classes and groups and now taking bookings, such as: Tiny Talk and Little Signers Club, Early Years Music Group (who are all currently running online classes), Robin Hood Gymnastics Academy, Baby Sensory, Rockabillies, Get in touch with Baby Sparks Sensory, Tumble Tots. Little Legs, Little Fit, Little Kickers, Sing Song Stories, Mini Motions, Baby Ballet, Wiggle & Giggle, Teddy’s Tots, BeBops, Jo Jingles, Mini Maker Move and Baby Sparks Sensory.
Two of our favourite baby swimming class providers, Puddle Ducks and Water Babies will also be returning, as well as those run by your local authority.
For new and expectant parent, get in touch with Pre-natal pilates, the Daisy Foundation, Baby Bloom Massage and Yoga, The Reformer Studio Pre -natal Pilates and First Steps into Parenting.
Meanwhile, some services at Children’s Centres across Nottinghamshire are currently online. For details of your nearest centre and activities visit www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/care/early-years-and-childcare/childrens-centre-service.
Ae parents, we see how much our children benefit from engaging with new activities and new people in new surroundings. If you’ve had a lockdown baby, it may feel particularly strange, but baby will thank you for getting out there and trying something new.
A little intro to The elms!
A little intro to The Elms Pre-School
As we all know, the first five years of a child’s life are vital for their development. At Pre-School, children learn and play together, building strong foundations for the school journey ahead and a successful future beyond it.
Your child can join a thriving community at The Elms from six weeks old where support from qualified staff enable children to excel in the seven areas of learning and development on the early years curriculum.
At The Elms, Pre-School children learn in a classroom environment, wear uniform and eat their lunch in the whole school dining room. Every child benefits from advanced learning opportunities, including specialist teaching in various subjects and daily sessions with Reception teachers.
Following a smooth transition into reception, your child can go further with a first class education through to senior school and sixth form at Trent College.
