There was not a dry eye at The Stables today as we say goodbye to the Graduating Class of 2019.
It has been a pleasure to look after each and every child, many we have known since they started in the baby room, helping them all to grow into the wonderful little people they have all become. Each child has a special place in our hearts and we will not forget any of them.

It has been a fun-packed fortnight at Evolution Childcare!
Our Nurseries have all been very busy taking part in lots of Easter activities, from Easter Bonnet competitions and parades, to making chocolate nests and marshmallow cakes, decorating and hunting Easter eggs, egg and spoon races... and to top it all off, the Easter Bunny hopped over to visit the children to give out lots of yummy chocolate treats!

Our generation are used to fast living, speed and multitasking as we cram a million things into each and every day.
When a Parent finds the time out of their busy schedule to sit and write a thank you to my wonderful team, it never fails to stop me in my tracks and takes my breath away.
Regardless of the countless measures and controls I have in place to monitor my business success, this is at the end of the day the only thing that matters.
I would like to share this with any Parent who feels the struggle and guilt trying to meet your childcare needs. Don’t give up... the right Nursery is out there for you.

Recently, I was carrying out a showround and taking a parent of a 3 year old around the Nursery.
As we came to the end of our tour, Mum shared with me her concerns that she was afraid her son wouldn’t be able to get through the big first day at Nursery without her. I explained all about the settling in process and then suddenly I remembered a beautiful heartwarming method that I thought she should try.

Turville nursery is recruiting now for a childcare practitioner to join one of our rooms on a full-time or part-time basis. We can be flexible for the right candidate and provide a great work-life balance. We are a young team who are very passionate and enthusiastic about children’s education, love to laugh and have fun at work. No two days are the same and we sure make the most out of each and every one of them!

Less than four weeks ago, Nat, Dec and I were discussing the ever looming subject of Frankies 3rd Birthday. It’s been a subject we have been discussing on and off since well... her last Birthday actually as Nat likes to…plan ahead.
How about a Frozen Party she suggested? Nat, I appreciate its March and it’s snowing, but seriously forget ……‘The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway’, because it does and we are not resorting to making the house any colder with freezer open whilst we play hide and seek in the fantasy ice palace. No Dec we cannot serve ice cubes instead of food despite the money saving benefits to the party. Mind you I could seriously knock together a quick presentation on 100 reasons why you shouldn’t marry someone you’ve just met!

By Sue Jones
(Managing Director of Evolution Childcare)
Oh what a busy day, I’ve been playing with the dough,
And with a little teachers help, upon a card I learnt to sew,
I helped my friend nurse Jane to perform an operation,
Then put some track together for my train and built a station.

Being a grandparent is a wonderful chapter that Rob and I have embraced with open arms.
I have happily blogged on the hilarities of the new role as we bumble our way getting to grips with this new super honour and the responsibilities that the role brings.
However, this Christmas Holiday break and a few mulled wines later, my Super Granny Halo had started to slip. Let me explain...

Preparing for Halloween is a big event in the Nursery Calendar. It symbolises the end of the Summer, new Reception big boys and girls, the countdown to Bonfire Night and then onto Christmas. We talk to children about fun, games, laughter, emotions, sharing and caring, along with spooks, witches and creepy crawlies along the way.
However Halloween is also one of those days where there is a clear divide between friends who have children and those who don’t...

Past family holidays at the Jones’s aren’t quite like the Thomas Cook adverts. Each year I imagine the pool splashing, the laughter, the sandcastle, the cocktails and the sunsets. Yet... they never quite materialize how I imagined. Add into the equation my Mother who seems to become a human cocktail calorie calculator at the first sniff of Malibu, and I literally want to drive myself off the cliff of sanity.

For many 3-4 year old children, this summer will mark an important milestone...

Head Office has been a hive of activity this Month. We have had brighter mornings, baby showers, weddings, engagements, birthday celebrations and plenty of staff nights out. Add to this, parents evening time, AND we are celebrating womanhood this month. With the fun factor in mind I thought this month, I would give you a practical ‘Adults’ take on understanding the EYFS terminology.

Now I don’t mean to be cynical here but in the Jones household, since Rob and I became Parents, we have a Valentines Code of Practice. The Code goes like this:
I hereby agree to ZERO show of public affection on Feb 14th, the lead up to the dreaded Valentine’s Day and for 7 days thereafter.
Why do you think we have this special binding agreement? Well it’s because before we had Children, Valentine’s Day had a whole new meaning.

I confess, I am the World’s biggest Christmas romantic. Years of Christmas movies, happy ever afters and feel good chick flicks have left me with a rather unrealistic view of Christmas Day.
“Here we go again” Rob sighs as I protest how perfect this year Christmas day will be.
“How hard can it be to have a grown up Christmas without any drama?” I reply trying to convince him and myself it seems at the same time. “Surely our three Gremlins, associated boyfriends, granddaughter, Great Grandparents, in-laws etc etc can all behave for the entire 24 hour duration”.
“Sue” he eventually replies with that black is black and white is white tone of voice. “The kids are normal, the family is normal, the day is normal, what isn’t normal is your fantasy version”.
Well… as it turns out… shock, horror, Rob was indeed right and I didn’t quite get the fantasy day I was dreaming of after all. Instead however I had a wonderful, mixed up, crazy, insanely bonkers, fantastic, drunken and totally normal day after all. Perhaps Rob is right and my New Year Resolution should be to leave my fantasy day to the movies?

Christmas as a working mum is that wonderful relaxing time of year where we are expected to combine working full time with relentless shopping, present buying, house decorating, food shopping, mass catering, pot washing, house cleaning, family visits, bed stripping, present wrapping, party organising, nativity watching and marital mayhem.

Before I ventured into being a mum I had a lot of time to be incredibly selfish. I loved to dream, to plan, to organise and to accomplish. I used to think about being a mum with a sense of smugness, I knew it all and I was going to be an amazing mum. I read every parenting book on the planet just so I could be sure I had it organised.
I would never lose my temper with my children. I would never let my children run around with their shoes on the wrong feet. I would never wear gym clothes all day. I would never leave face painting on their faces for five days. I would never let them eat sugar. I would never let them wear a Cinderella outfit for a full week. We would never skip tooth brushing or hair brushing because of the drama. I would never be “that” mum. I would spend my days with my children reading books, visiting national trust parks, going to libraries, museums, doing crafts, and exploring the outdoors. I was going to be the very first Super Mum.

There is nothing better for your mental well being than throwing your head back and belly laughing until your stomach hurts, your eyes are full of tears and your cheeks hurt. Well it may come as a surprise but babies are no different to us adults. Just as you find things from mildly funny to damn right hysterical, so will your baby.
So how do we turn those giggle muscles on and boost baby belly laughs? Babies develop their side splitting sense of humour in a clear process so essentially they find different things funny at different stages in their development.

Confidence and self-esteem is something we as adults can particularly relate to and something that all of us want our children to have. We want our children to grow up happy and emotionally strong, knowing that who they are and what they stand for is enough and all that matters to them. We want them confident and comfortable in their own skin and want them to celebrate and be proud of their achievements. We want them to know their strengths and their weaknesses and to embrace the fact that they are wonderful and unique and utterly individual.

It may be raining but we have had the best afternoon...
We had a visit from a fire engine!!! The children absolutey loved it! They got to go and explore the inside of the fire engine and even got to try some real firemen hats on.

This year on December 11th we are running a XMAS special for all our children: babies, toddlers and preschoolers. We are planning lots of fun activities including Xmas arts and crafts, snow lucky dip, games, songs, dance and magic with all mighty Bertie Slippers.
