Bright Sparks nursery, Tupsley, welcomed back some of their children following the prime ministers announcement that schools and early years settings could re-open.

Although it is evident to all that children under five will not socially distance they have created two small bubbles so children can be spaced out as much as possible and confirm that it has been a superb return.

Children were very excited to go back and see their friends, and the purple ladies (nursery officers) spent extended time learning and playing outside as much as possible.

The nursery were very lucky  to borrow some gazebo's from Mayor Kath, for the outdoor areas and are also been very grateful to Growing Local is Going Local CIC who kindly donated growing seed packs for all the families and the nursery thank them both very much.

Bright Sparks are now underway with a competition for all. Who will have the tallest sunflower and amount of beans?

Although due to government guidelines the nursery are still missing lots of  little people due to only being able to have limited numbers, the staff have continued to stay in touch, either through children's online learning journals or telephone call, with parents praising the nursery's contact throughout the pandemic. 

So out of what has been a challenging time for all, everyone at Bright Sparks has been  happy to return.

Seeing all the happy little faces and hearing all the laughter and conversations must have been wonderful be around again.

Bright Sparks Manager Kate Shepherd, said: "I can't thank parents enough for their understanding and support with the changes we have made and to the staff for their ongoing commitment to ensuring our little ones stay happy, safe and well and I thank them all.

"As the saying goes - Its amazing what can be accomplished when we are all in it together."
