Visits To Sandcastles
|North West 200
During the North West 200 the nursery had a visit from one of the North West competitors and local man James McCann. James very kindly brought in one of his bikes which the children got to see up close and even had the chance to sit on it if they so wished. James even participated in a mini Sandcastles Bike challenge where by he raced the Pre-School children on our very own tricycles!!! James finished the afternoon by talking to our Pre-School and Afterschool children and telling them what its like to take part in motor bike racing. Click here to view the North West 200 Gallery
|Josie and her Guide dog Marcell
We also encourage visitors to come into the nursery and have talks with the children. We have recently had a visit by Josie and her Guide dog Marcell who was able to give the pre-school children an insight to what day to day live is like when you are blind.
Health visitors and dentists also come to the nursery to talk to the children about the important of healthy living as at Sandcastles we believe that children deserve a positive outlook on the correct ways to keep fit and healthy.
The fire brigade (who even gave Santa a lift to our Christmas party) life boat and ambulance services have also visited nursery and the children got the opportunity to sit in the ambulance or fire engine.
|Pets at Home
Pets at home also called in and brought several different animals including a hamster who got loose in the toddler room (Granted he was in his sports car)!!! Click here to view the Pets Gallery
