[08/28/20]   As I close my door for the final time this week, I’ve been reflecting on this summer and the adventures we’ve had. Thank you to all of the families that have chosen us to care for their precious children in these unprecedented times. We’ve made so many memories and I hope we’ve given the children a genuine appreciation for outdoor learning and play. Now time to focus on Let’s Be Kids, but if we have further lockdowns for more than a fortnight, we will open once more if the guidance allows 🌳 🌈❤️


Started the last week off with some new faces and some we haven’t seen for a while. I love how much the children love what we do ❤️🌳🤦🏼‍♀️🌈

Muddy knees and climbing trees: how a summer playing outdoors can help children recharge

🌳🌈 For children, getting outdoors helps to aid their exploration of the world – it's how they learn best.

This weeks fun 🍓🌞🌦🌈




Slingshot fun 💚 🌳🌈

[07/24/20]   Another great week had by all. We’ve said goodbye to a couple and welcomed others finishing school, we hope you all take away good memories of your time here. We can’t wait to catch up with our new starters next week though - lots more fun to be had ❤️


We’ve had another lovely week here - so busy making, creating, being arty and baking as well as our forest school activities. All this whilst helping to care for our new puppy Milo! We’ve learned so much - even though we probably don’t realise it - all through play and with a smile on our face

We’ve had a cancellation for the summer so if you need care for a child aged birth to 11, please get in touch 🌳🌈🤎


Art days with spa music too - heaven ❤️🎼🎨🌈


We’ve had another great day outdoors enjoying our local environment 🤎🌳🌈


Another busy day climbing, hiding, painting, and having fun 🌳🤎🌈


Is it tomorrow yet ? ❤️🌳🌈


We have always been passionate about play outside, and recognise the benefits to physical and mental health. Here is a few slides on how we can recover from the effects of lockdown by using the outdoors - we don’t need convincing though - we spend as much time as we can outside 🌈🌳

Outdoor Learning and COVID.
These slides are from a key stage meeting about the benefits/ ways to learn outside with social distancing.
They contain information that is my personal opinion and the images do not belong to me. [Most are from google but some are from the lovely @alfresco_learning 😊🧡]
Can you think of any other socially distant activities/ games for outdoors?

There’s a lot to say for the outdoors - especially after a long lockdown. Such high levels of engagement shown by the children, whilst developing, confidence and resilience. Most of all - smiles and an eagerness to return 🌳🌈🐞🕷🐛



Something I like to post regularly as it is always important and so worth repeating.

Yes I stand up for play. Yes I will protect the rights of children for pure unadulterated play.

We are having the best week at Chapelford Childcare. The children are enjoying being outside. We’ve made friends, been very creative, played games, learned new skills. We are all ready for more structure and socialisation, the benefits are immense. We do this through play - a human right for children. We need this to promote good mental health for our children - something I know is concerning so many parents right now 🌳🤎🌈

It’s a slimy sort of day today ❤️ two new starters have settled amazingly well 🌈




Another day spent outside following our Covid-19 operating procedures with lots of hand washing and cleaning and sanitising of our equipment and resources, spending our days outside etc

We also have lots of fun, we play, we socialise, have sensory experiences, use our imagination, practise our writing, read lots of stories. We are happy outside and we are learning and getting back to a new normal 💚🌳🤎🌈
