  Our son started here after the first lockdown in September.  Having struggled to settle in a different nursery we chose to go to Paper Moon Day Nursery - Gamston following a recommendation.  We are so pleased we moved him here! He settled very quickly and now absolutely loves going to nursery.  He talks about his nursery friends and the staff that look after him all the time and is disappointed when its not a nursery day!  The staff are brilliant and really get to know the children well.  They show outstanding care towards the children and keep you updated with any news.  He is always so happy when we drop him off and skips into nursery without a second thought.  The nursery is managed really well and they have continued to look after the children amazingly well throughout the pandemic.  We would not hesitate to recommend Paper Moon Nursery - ...

The children at our Boultham Park nursery had a wonderful surprise when the manager arranged for two lambs to pay them a visit. The manager and staff recognized that the children have had very few experiences such as this over the last year and wanted to offer the children a Spring surprise.   The staff spent time with the children talking about lambs, how to keep them safe, how to feed them and how to pet them safely. Once the lambs had gone the staff and  children continued to talk about the visit and used various resources, puppets and stories to continue to extend the experience. Its fair to say the children loved their visitors!

On the 21st March we were able to join our families to raise awareness for International World Down Syndrome Day.  At nursery we have a very knowledgeable mummy and along with her amazing daughter shared some very useful information with us that we were able to share with others.  This has really helped to build a better understanding of the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome that causes Down Syndrome.  For more information: Thank you for helping us to build our knowledge and understanding.

Spring time is a wonderful time of year to notice new things growing in the garden and when out and about.  There is so much to explore outdoors when we are in the garden or out for a walk.  Teaching children about nature and giving them the opportunity to be outdoors exploring is a very important part of our day at Paper Moon Nurseries.

At Paper Moon Nurseries we are passionate about developing a love of reading and enjoying books.  We know that reading and sharing stories can: help a child get to know sounds, words and language, and develop early literacy skills. learn to value books and stories. ... help develop a child's brain, ability to focus, concentration, social skills and communication skills.   These are  just a few of the many reasons we celebrate World Book Day at all of our nurseries.  This year the children (and their parents) have let their imaginations run wild!  We even had our very own Einstein!
