Immacolata House continue relationship with Little Pips Nursery
After their successful Summer Holidays together, the relationship between Immacolata House residents and the children continues to grow.
This time the children will be spending time with the residents in their own home, Immacolata House.
Once a week on a Tuesday, they will be taking part in fun activities together.
The first session (24th October 2017) the children loved being on the mini bus and sang ‘wheels on the bus’ there and back!
The residents and children enjoyed sticking leaves, conkers and flowers onto pumpkins to make the faces. Residents also enjoyed picking the leaves and conkers prior to the children coming.
When the children arrived back to the nursery, Brooke (aged 4) bounced in and said
“Pam (resident) gave me a big hug , there was cake and it’s so warm there in the big house”.
First meeting during the Summer holidays
Little Pips is part of Curry Rivel primary school. They provide quality childcare for 2-4 year olds 50 weeks of the year! Therefore during the summer holidays (25/07/17 – 29/08/17) Immacolata House will be joining them. So every Tuesday for a hour, they will take part in activities with Little Pips.
Residents had their first meeting with the children this week (July 2017.) While enjoying getting creative with painting and homemade play-dough, that smelt of chocolate!
Georgie and Pam, Immacolata House residents, loved the afternoon, watching, conversing and interacting with the children.
Especially relevant, the afternoon brought back fond memories for Georgie and Pam;
This brings back memories; I would always have a garden full of children. From my own children, to friends and neighbours.
The little girl reminds me of my sister, with curly hair…beautiful!
In addition to being creative, 2 of the children decided they had some energy to burn! As a result they had a race in the hall, even pulling in Emma (Immacolata House Activities Coordinator.)
Unfortunately the girls proved too fast for Emma to catch up!
Everyone is looking forward to next week’s interaction…
