  The children at Elephant Moon have been enjoying going for some outings as the weather is improving.   Preschool have been on a listening walk and took some clipboards and checklists with them to tick off when they heard a specific sound. They had their listening ears turned up to full volume and heard lots of different sounds including birds, aeroplanes and the bin lorry! They have also been to the local children’s library and had a lovely time picking out some books they were interested in!

The children have had a lovely Christmas themed week where they did something festive every day! They have been wearing their Christmas jumpers and other Christmassy clothing items. They also got to enjoy a lovely Christmas roast dinner and chocolate yule log, and had a yummy Christmas tea of jam and cheese sandwiches cut into Christmas trees, baubles and stockings! Some of the children have also made some reindeer food which they can sprinkle in their gardens on Christmas eve night to leave out for Rudolph and his friends!

Children in Need 2021

Posted: Friday 03, December, 2021

  Preschool have had a fun week doing lots of Pudsey Bear themed actvities! Pudsey lost all of the rainbow spots from his eye patch so the children had to search around the preschool room to find them all and return them back to Pudsey! We have also done some Pudsey bear crafts where the children have been able to show us their cutting and mark making skills! The children always love to play in a tuff tray so we made a Pudsey gloop tray! It was bright yellow and we added lots of rainbow counters for the children to play with, which

As a first time mum I was feeling particularly anxious about sending my baby to nursey. I was recommended elephant moon by two sets of friends and I am so pleased that they did. They were absolutely great with me and my son. Always happy to talk me through anything I was worrying about before he started, they really made me feel relaxed and comfortable. My son loves going there for as well, he gets so much out of it and everyone is always so welcoming and friendly. I couldn't recommend highly enough

Elephant Moon is a wonderful nursery for our little boy - he absolutely loves his days there, and it's great being sent photos and updates to let us know what he's up to. The team are caring, genuine, flexible and it is obvious that our son loves them! We couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you all!

Dom & Zoe Brown

Really fantastic nursery! Our daughter joined one year ago and she loves it. She’s developed so much since she started thanks to all of the wonderful practitioners. Different activities every day, really varied food menu and great communication. Can highly recommend!

I can't recommend Elephant Moon Nursery highly enough. They have cared for all three of my children with genuine affection, patience and care. All three left Elephant Moon feeling more than ready to embark on school and their teachers have commented on how well prepared they have been with regards their independence and knowledge (e.g. phonics, numbers and shapes), much of that is thanks to their time spent at Elephant Moon. Amanda is always flexible, accommodating and striving to keep the setting open come rain, shine, Covid or snow! During the time our children attended the setting, the team at Elephant Moon were like the helpful, reliable, family member we needed and we miss them all hugely!

Fab nursery. I have been using Elephant Moon since 2014 and can't rate it highly enough. My eldest son transitioned into school so easily and my youngest, who still attends EM loves it. He even asks at weekends if he can go to nursery today!!!! The staff and management are all so lovely and approachable and the communication is brilliant!

Annabelle Wilkinson

Absolutely wonderful nursery. My daughter joined Jul 2020 after her previous setting closed due to covid and the team were wonderful, they really helped her settle during what was a difficult time and my daughter really thrived there. Cannot recommend enough. She's now in school but still talks about Elephant Moon!

I would highly recommend Elephant Moon nursery. The staff are all really friendly and helpful. They are very responsive to emails and calls so I can always get the guidance I need as a first time mum. My son loves it there. They do all the messy activities that I don’t find the time to do myself which I really appreciate. I love the daily updates I get and photos about what he is up to. Thank you for all your support.

I have two children who have attended Elephant Moon and I can’t have asked for more from a nursery setting. I have always been given detailed information about their activities every day - both through Tapestry and a daily diary - and all members of staff have been totally respectful of maintaining my children’s routine. I’ve been particularly impressed by the fact that both the staff who oversee the various rooms and the management are incredibly knowledgeable about every individual child which implies a real involvement in the children’s care. Most importantly, both of my children are happy, settled and confident and have developed innumerable social and academic skills thanks to their attendance at this setting. I can’t recommend Elephant Moon highly enough.

Our child attended Elephant Moon for 3 years and loved it! They have an amazing team of staff that really care for the children and give them the best start in life. Highly recommend them for nursery and pre-school.

Sophie Longley

Both our daughters absolutely love the nursery setting and have always felt safe and supported by the team there. Our eldest has recently started school and the preparation at the pre-school has definitely shown in how well she has settled. Amanda and the rest of the team really do feel like an extension of family - a really special place where children thrive.

Clare Cook

This is a great nursery - it has such a great family feel. All the nursery staff seem to care and take a huge interest in the development of the children. We are kept up to date daily on our child’s learning and development journey. Both our children go to this nursery for a reason and they clearly love it.

Cath Wilford

We have used Elephant Moon for almost 5 years between our 2 children. The staff are a credit to the nursery and I would highly recommend this setting to anyone looking for a safe, nurturing and engaging environment for their child.

Laura Wasylkiw

We are so happy with this nursery. Our LO goes in so happily every time, and the communication is fantastic, even during the Covid restrictions, we felt in touch and aware of everything that was going on. The nursery staff are kind, caring and attentive.

Annalie Smith

Wonderful nursery and pre-school setting. Staff are so welcoming, attentive and caring. Our twin daughters thrived at this nursery and we could not recommend it enough.
