    Activities

    We provide a range of planned and unplanned activities and resources to enable children to investigate and explore both inside and outside. The Squirrels enjoy exploring with play dough, having make believe adventures in their role play area and caring for the rabbits. They also like story time and reading books with a member of staff. The Squirrels and Badgers also enjoy trips to the garden centre to see the fish and walks to Knaresborough during the Feva festival.

      My name is Susan, I have been in childcare for over 10 years and although I joined the team in 2013, I feel part of the Red Kite family. I lead each of the rooms in absence of the room supervisors. I enjoy flexibility of working throughout nursery and it allows me to engage with both children and the nursery staff team.
