Our Charity Week For Callum Foy

What a week it has been at The Stables!

All week we have been fundraising for Callum Foy's Fight Against Cancer.

Callum needs to go to Germany to receive Proton Beam Therapy and his family and friends have been fundraising to help with the financial burden of Callum's treatment.

Here at The Stables we have been helping all we can and have been taking part in several sponsored activities to try and help raise the finds that Callum's family so desperately need.

Teamwork Makes The Dreamwork

Our generation are used to fast living, speed and multitasking as we cram a million things into each and every day.

When a Parent finds the time out of their busy schedule to sit and write a thank you to my wonderful team, it never fails to stop me in my tracks and takes my breath away.

Regardless of the countless measures and controls I have in place to monitor my business success, this is at the end of the day the only thing that matters.

I would like to share this with any Parent who feels the struggle and guilt trying to meet your childcare needs. Don’t give up... the right Nursery is out there for you.

The Ladybird's Worldwide Adventures So Far!

This summer at The Stables we are going to be learning all about the World with the help of our favourite book, What The Ladybird Heard, by Julia Donaldson.

The ladybird has been very busy, flying around the world, listening for news to share with us!

We have been asking family and friends of The Stables to send postcards to our nursery from around the world with the words “I am the ladybird and I heard…” with a sentence telling us about the country or city the postcard was sent from. We will pin our postcards to our world map to see just how far our ladybird has travelled!

Summer Family Holiday Tips Learnt This Year

Past family holidays at the Jones’s aren’t quite like the Thomas Cook adverts. Each year I imagine the pool splashing, the laughter, the sandcastle, the cocktails and the sunsets. Yet... they never quite materialize how I imagined. Add into the equation my Mother who seems to become a human cocktail calorie calculator at the first sniff of Malibu, and I literally want to drive myself off the cliff of sanity.
