Slippers get new scooters!

Slippers has new scooters! Our children were excited to be given the opportunity to help select their favourite types of scooter.  The Razor 360 has proven to be very popular and a fun choice, encouraging  our children to take turns.

Check out the photo of some of our children enjoying their first goes on the new scooters in our gallery.

2014 Plans

We intend to build on our success!


Plans for 2014 include:

  1. A quiet corner – children need a ‘curl up’ or ‘calm down’ area where they know they can be supported, or take time to sort out their feelings.
  2. Develop the computer area – data sticks for children to borrow, a new display board listing interesting websites and ideas and new, age appropriate games.
  3. More outdoor toys, such as scooters!
  4. Look at how we can help families that use Slippers regularly.
  5. A story telling armchair!
  6. A mud kitchen in the garden – with real mud! (Sorry!)

Panto Day

As this is a staff training day, prior to the return to school on Tuesday 7th, Slippers is offering a Panto Day for the children!
All the fun of stage performances and prop making!
This theme will continue for the remainder of the first week, as the children always suggest new characters to put in the performance!
