Christmas is a time for lots of things – seeing loved ones, exchanging gifts and being merry. However, and we think we’re all in agreement here, there is one thing that stands above the rest and that is delicious food! Many of us love tucking into crispy pigs in blankets, succulent turkey and even the obligatory brussels sprout! So here are three food-based activities you can enjoy with your little one over the festive period. 
 
This time of year is an excellent opportunity for your little one to develop an understanding of the natural world. Here are some fun things to do with them as we head towards winter. 
 
Nearly a quarter of five year olds in England have tooth decay and tooth extraction is the most common reason for hospital admission in children aged 6-10. This problem is so big, Oral Health has been added to the EYFS, meaning your child will learn even more about how and why they should look after their teeth when they’re with us. 
What your child eats today can have an impact on them through childhood, adolescence and adulthood so it’s important that you do all you can to make sure they eat the right things. 
 
Off the back of the summer holidays, we’ve all indulged in an ice cream or two and some sugary drinks here and there and there’s nothing wrong with that. However, now’s the time to focus on your child getting the necessary nutrients for physical and mental growth and development. We know it can be a real pain getting children to eat their vegetables so we’re going to share some tips on how to work with your child to get them eating well. 
Quality sleep is absolutely essential for your child’s growth and development! Sleep is a very important part of your child’s mental and physical health as it allows their mind and body to recover and rest.  
 
There are lots of things you can do to help your child get a good night’s sleep as often as possible.

Starting primary school is an exciting time, but we understand it can be daunting for you and your child. It marks the end of one chapter and the start of an exciting new one. Before you know it, your child will be making friends, learning new skills, and becoming increasingly independent, all in the blink of an eye! 
Each and every child is unique and special. Children and babies are constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. 
 
At Wellies we recognise that: 
 
- All children will develop and learn at different rates. 
- Children learn to be independent and strong through positive relationships. 
- Children learn and develop best in enabling environments.

March is a busy but joyous month to celebrate for many reasons! Apart from being the start of the Spring season, March is also known as the month of new beginnings, and now with the added promise of leaving lockdown firmly behind, we can start to see a shift back to normality as we once knew it hard on our ‘woolly tails!’
