After School Club News Flash

The much anticipated new Coety Primary School building on the Parc Derwen site opened on Monday and welcomed many new and existing pupils with much excitment.
Starting school is an exciting time however due to the length of the school day this often brings further childcare problems for parents.
Here at Chunky Monkeys we have recently bought a new vehicle so we can do pick ups from the school and offer after school facilities until 6pm.
Doing after school club we will provide a light tea and activities which will change daily.

Winter Arrives in the Elephant Room

Like the Giraffe room we will be ending November and starting December with a Winter theme before we begin the Christmas fun!!!

November 23rd Brown Day
On this day we will be wearing brown clothes and celebrating the colour by making chocolate biscuits. We will be only using the colour brown all day but use pine cones and conkers rolled in paint to make our pictures.

Giraffe's White Week

In the Giraffe room we are really excited for Christmas but we think we can do one more theme before the excitment gets too much. So to ease us into the festive season we are going to have a white week.
A perfect theme for this time of year as we can include weather, snow and ice and sensations of hot and cold. We will also be able to include sparkle and shine as I think I can speak for everyone at Chunky Monkeys as soon as December 1st arrives we can't wait to get out the glitter!!!

Elephant Room November Dora and Superhero Excitment

The children in the Elephant room have a November jam packed with Dora and superhero fun!!

The 9th November is officially Dora Day in the Elephant room. They will be going on an adventure with their backpacks into the park with the help of their maps!! Please can you remember their wellies on this day. They will also be making Boots masks to bring home.

Giraffe Room Transport fun!

The Giraffe room's theme this month is Transport. Transport is fascinating for toddlers, from loving the song "Wheels on the Bus" to wondering how aeroplanes are in the sky. They will be exploring all forms of transport, trains, planes, boats and automobiles! The children will be making banana boats and make vehicle pictures from hand and feet prints. They will also role play journeys on different vehicles.


Big thank you to Farmer Rory for visiting us here at Chunky Monkeys Day Nursery. Staff and children had an amazing day learning all about Farmer Rory's farm and his animals. We were lucky enough to feed a sheep and her lamb, ride in Farmer Rory's tractor, play with an adorable puppy sheepdog and listen to lots of wonderful farm tales.

We all look forward to your next visit Farmer Rory!

Hug Day

Hug Day = 21st Jan There’s nothing more reassuring than a comforting cuddle; National Hugging Day encourages you to embrace hugging, and to give those you care about a comforting squeeze. Lovely! The key learning objective for this celebration will be to teach children how to be kind and caring towards others. A Hug A Day Keeps The Doctor Away!
