Abbey Wood Grange Nursery Pre School news and events

April 2017

Whats new for 2017.......

At Abbey Wood Grange we continually re invest into the nursery to ensure all the children flourish in a well maintained, well resourced environment. Fundraising events throughout the year povide us with additional opportunities to purchase specific equipment with 100% of all proceeds raised going towards nursery resources.

After much consideration and research, we have made the following additions to our gardens. The new features ensure we maximise our gardens and the learning opportunities available to all the children.

  • Alphabet wall murals to aid letter recognition
  • Telescopes on the decking area to aid knowledge of our environment and the world around us
  • Camouflage Den area on the decking to aid team building and social skills

  • Construction zone on bottom playground complete with giant sandpit and building workshop to aid gross motor development and team work
  • Sound wall to aid creative development
  • Tipi Village complete with wigwam, woodland mirrors and weaving loom to aid sensory development and boost self esteem

The Launch of Tapestry

Tapestry is a standalone application which records your child's development and allows parents and carers to access their child's individual learning journey from the comfort of their own home. Tapestry allows parents and carers to comment on observations written by their child's key worker as well as upload their own observations and photos.

The ability to continually share information, provides key workers with a further insight into a child's development, meaning children benefit from a tailor-made learning environment, where learning opportunities can be maximised.

Management have full control over access, ensuring all staff and parents can use Tapestry securely. Parents are provided with a unique activation code, you then have a week to download the Tapestry App, set up your own passcode and 4 digit pin. Parents can then view ONLY their child's Development Profile and see the observations we have created.
