Panto comes to Jubilee


In true spirit of the season, we welcomed Pyramid Panto to perform an interactive show "Once Upon A Story Time" which was tailored to our nursery.  With lots of laughter and excitement, over 90 children joined in as they watched the performance.


Lesley Thompson, Nursery Manager, said "This is the first time Pyramid Panto have come to the nursery and it was so wonderful that the children enjoyed the show so much. It was a great start to the festive season."



Going on a bear hunt


We're going on a bear hunt, we're going to catch a big one, what a beautiful day.... we're not scared!

Uh-oh Grass....

Acting out the story of The Bear Hunt, using real-life experiences caused much amusement amongst the children. 


As they made their way through our private woodland, they splashed through the "Deep Cold River" and squelched in the "Thich Oozy Mud".


The children really benefit from exploring in our woodland which we visit regularly for many activities, including den building, climbing, scavenger and bug hunts. Many of our family events take place in the woods.  These include our family picnic and magical winter wonderland walk.  Fresh air and outdoor learning and very much part of the Jubilee lifestyle and the children thrive on it.

Graduation Day

Graduation Group

Children starting big school this September took part in their very own Graduation ceremony at nursery. Each child was dressed in cap and gown which were all hand-sewn by our talented staff.


Over 60 children received a certificate, framed photograph, a ‘goodbye’ poem and some toys as they shook hands with staff in front of proud parents, grandparents and siblings.

Lesley Thompson, our nursery manager said “Most of the children who graduated have been in our care since they were just a few months old and over the years, they have had so many wonderful adventures with us. We will miss them all terribly, although we will see many of them in the holidays at Jubilee Jets Holiday club! They have been great company to be with and we wish them lots of happiness in the future.”


The school-age children have been working with our Early-Years professional who has brought an immense amount of fun to teaching phonics, hand-writing and numeracy in preparation for starting school. Over 200 children remain in the nursery with 65 children moving into the shoes of those leaving. They will become the ‘grown-ups’ at Jubilee Day Nursery and start to enjoy our Forest School outdoor learning programme in our private woodland and working with our gardener, as well as developing confidence, movement and language skills through play.

Sunshine at last!

What better way to enjoy the lovely weather, than with some water play?  The children have thoroughly enjoyed water channelling, filling various objects with the hose, pouring and squirting!

Siblings enjoy a walk together

We have a number of siblings in different rooms throughout the nursery and they are usually so busy playing with their own friends that the day can often go by without them seeing one another. Not today!

Nursery siblings were very excited to spend a morning walk together. As they held hands or helped to push a buggy, they took a short walk to see the animals and had a well-earned rest as they enjoyed a snack and drink al-fresco.

Celebrating a 5 star award

We are thrilled to have just been awarded the highest possible rating (5 Stars) once again for our high level of food hygiene.  Since the scheme launched in 2008 we have been proud owners of the 5 star status.

We prepare all of our meals on the premises from fresh ingredients.

Some of our cattle and sheep provide us with good quality, 100% local, British meat.  Our hens are also kind enough to lay us fresh eggs for use in the nursery.

Creative Play

Nothing reinforces the creative spirit and nourishes a child's soul more than providing time to engage in spontaneous, self-directed play. Play is the serious business of young children and to do so freely is vital to healthy development.
