Wall Stickers for My New Nursery

Believe me running a nursery is no easy feat, from under qualified staff and parents who drop their children in as if they were packages. Oh and did I mention education, yes believe it or not a nursery is not just a play group it is a fundamental stepping stone before entering primary school. Children learn how to socialise with others, learn to adapt to a new environment and begin to properly formulate speech and ideas. Nevertheless I do believe the majority of parents do not realise the importance of nursery for their young ones. I am by no means criticising  the parents themselves but rather the educative system that has given society this pre conceived idea and  unfounded notion of education for pre –school children.  Bearing all these difficulties in mind I would not change my job for the world. I have been running and managing a small nursery in Somerset for just under a year now and it is amazing what can be done with the right kind of direction, support and enthusiasm. My staff that had always been somewhat unappreciated has jumped aboard the new project we have outlined.

We have created links with local artists; the children have participated in small workshops sculpting representations of themselves. They become aware of the notion of the body and all the complexities this entails. Well enough with my project you can see I’m sure how passionate I’m about making a change. Change the word of the week! We have completely revamped the interior of the nursery, no interior designs just a bunch of dedicated parents! There has been such a communal feeling to the project it warms my heart. One father a builder has put up some walls creating a fantastic sensory room, with lights and furnishings sourced and donated from Debenhams another parent.  To more simple but effective design, wall stickers creating a mural of nursery rhymes had brought to life a vast expanse of the room. These quick and easy to apply vinyl decals have been a saving grace, sourced from cut it out and delivered within just a few days, bravo! An effective yet stylish teaching tool.
