Cippenham Nursery has been awarded the Slough Healthy Smiles Silver Award. This is in recognition for promoting a healthy lifestyle through curriculum activities, offering children healthy snacks and drinks and encouraging healthy lunch boxes. Also encouraging parents to offer stickers to children for birthdays instead of sweets.
To promote oral hygiene and support speech development, we have organised a visit from the Dummy & Bottle Fairy to give parents the opportunity to wean their children off their bottle/dummy. Certificates are handed to those children who hand them to the Fairy.
We have leaflets and information available for parents to support them in making healthy choices.
On 21st November the Bottle & Dummy Fairy paid a visit to our Nursery and collected lots of bottles and dummies from those children who agreed to give them up. They each received a certificate. We also had a visit from Karen Gonzalez, the Borough's Oral Health Improvement Practitioner, for staff training on oral health and supervised brushing.
