The children were really engaged in the bread making process

Summer 2023
Nursery Events

This year we celebrated the coronation with our own nursery street party and a cake sale to raise money for a local mental health charity.


We will be raising money again in September for Childhood Cancer month. We will be "Wearing it Gold" and holding another cake sale as well as selling golden ribbon pins. 


Our mini gardeners have done really well this year, growing carrots, runner beans and potatoes for our chef to add to the nursery's home cooked meals. 


The children have also had a go at making their own bread and chocolate!


Ongoing Training

Here at Jemima we believe that nobody has ever finished their learning journey!

Level Three training

Our aim is to have all of our core staff qualified to a minimum of level three. Staff complete any written assignments in their own time but we do all we can to support their practical learning in the setting, for example by allowing them to spend time in all three age groups, providing learners with a mentor/buddy and ensuring they have time with their assessors.  

Level  Two training

We currently have a practitioner completing the first step of their Early Years training journey as they work towards their level 2 qualification. As with level 3, we do all we can to support this within the setting as we know that better qualified practitioners means higher quality provision. 

In-house training

All staff are expected to take part in regular training delivered 'in-house'. This year so far, we have offered 'Safeguarding' and 'Safe Food Handling and Allergy Awareness'. This training usually happens after working hours or at the weekend but our dedicated staff don't shy away from this as they know that the more knowledge and skill they have, the safer and happier the children in their care.

Other training

Team members also access training provided by outside agencies such as Cambridgeshire County Council and National Day Nurseries Association.  Recently team members have completed training such as safeguarding, caring for babies, curriculum planning, managing behaviour and special educational needs.


Two team members are currently completing training to become mentors so they can offer even better support to colleagues with their learning journeys.
