  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!

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!
