Making a splash in city centre daycare


Some of our preschool children have been “Working like their mummies” in our cygnets room this week!  We have some very headstrong young ladies in our midst…We felt sorry for whoever was on the other end of the phone at one stage…its seems that our cygnets have tight deadlines and someone on the phone wasn’t playing ball!

Our 'Ducklings' randomly started chatting about wizards and making potions…we grasped the opportunity to extend their learning and their interest in this and had a session where they could all experiment with mixing colours, textures and smells to create their own magic potion.  Some of the conversations where fabulous and it was great to see how their little imaginations can run wild!  Some potential chemists in the making maybe??

Emma, Lisa, Sarah T, Evelyn, Ashley, Sharon & Shannon from Puddleducks Day Nursery wil be taking part in Grant Thornton Runway Run at George Best Belfast City Airport on Thursday 23rd June in aid of Puddleducks and BCM.
"Team PUDDLE will be racing team DUCKS along the runway in the hope to raise some money to buy additional resources that will optimise the learning opportunities for all our little ducklings!"

Sharon Malcom Bushe and Nick Loughran have run Belfast City Half Marathon for BCM's EAGLE autism support project!
