Making Rainbows - Children at Little Trinity Nursery Keeping Busy

Children at Little Trinity Nursery in Kidderminster are continuing to keep busy and active cutting up fruit to make fruit salad, celebrating St. George’s Day, having fun in the sun and creating colourful rainbow pictures for the residents of Burcot Grange & Lodge Care Home in Bromsgrove and Berrington Court in Kidderminster.

Nursery Manager, Gaynor Carter explained: “The children have all adapted really well to a much quieter nursery, although they can still make the nursery sound full to the rafters!

“When we first went into lockdown we wanted to show that we were thinking of and supporting others in the community so we made pictures for Berrington Court and Burcot Grange & Lodge Care Home chosen because a number of staff have family members that work there and they wanted to show their support.”

Catering for around 10 children each day, Little Trinity have also opened their doors to children of key workers who would normally attend other nurseries, but which have since been closed due to Covid-19.

Added Gaynor: “For essential workers we wanted to offer our support and nursery facilities to any child of key workers, and it’s been wonderful to see that they have all settled in extremely well, so much so that it’s hard to tell the difference between Little Trinity children and our visiting children!”

Still trying to follow usual routines, the nursery’s current theme is Transport and to ensure that those children not attending nursery are included, Little Trinity now sets weekly challenges which the children can do at home with their families and then upload onto the nursery’s Tapestry online learning journal, which they add to their Facebook page so that the children still feel part of the Little Trinity Nursery setting. Online song-time and story-time is also now a regular daily feature as well as new keep fit sessions.
