Park School Nursery celebrates 10th anniversary
In celebration of Park School Nursery’s 10th anniversary, a fun-filled morning was enjoyed by all at our Open Day on Saturday 28th April. To mark the occasion, families from across Bournemouth and Poole joined staff for the unveiling of our new outdoor learning facilities, featuring a mud kitchen, wooden play houses, a sand-pit and climbing ship!
Coffee and celebratory cupcakes were served throughout the morning and there was a whole host of activities to keep the children entertained, including face painting, a treasure hunt, craft activities and the chance for them to explore the new garden. Current and prospective parents were also offered the opportunity to meet the Park School team and get to know the nursery.
Nursery Manager, Rebecca Mellowes commented: “We’re thrilled with the turn-out at last weekend’s Open Day and the positivity we have received from parents surrounding the launch of our very special new garden. Our vision is of ‘a school full of smiles’ and that was certainly the case on Saturday! Having once been a pupil here at Park School, it was an honour to set up and open the nursery back in 2008. Since then it has become a thriving and vibrant environment, both inside and out. We’ve been able to create a setting that has a real focus on outdoor learning and discovery, allowing children to experience and interact with nature every day.”
Park School Headteacher, Melanie Dowler added: “This is an important year for Park School, not only is it the nursery’s 10th anniversary, but we are also celebrating 90 years since the school was established. We have built a strong reputation over the years for excellence in the education of young children and we are pleased to be able to offer early years education to children as young as two. Our nursery is an exciting place for children to learn and grow and we have a fantastic team of dedicated staff whose passion is to create a wonderful nurturing environment. It was a pleasure for us to welcome families to join with us in our celebrations and explore the exceptional facilities we have to offer here at Park School.”
