Country of the Month – China

March 14, 2019

Each month we look at and celebrate a different country from where the children in our nursery are from. This month we have celebrated China as our country of the month. Throughout, we have been making different crafts, tasting Chinese food, dressing up in traditional Chinese clothing, reading about China and looking at the Chinese writing just to name a few. This has been done with all ages in the setting to promote British Values and learn about the culture of some of our friends. These activities have also helped our children’s colour recognition, developed their imagination and built their knowledge and understanding of the world.

We have celebrated Chinese New Year (Year of the pig) by making cards, fans, pictures and little red envelopes with chocolate coins. We have celebrated the lantern festival by making lanterns with the children and exploring with a light dance for our sensory development with the younger children. With our older children, we have engaged in activities to develop our fine motor skills by using chopsticks in a tuff spot to pick up objects. We have incorporated a variety of Chinese materials into the children’s learning through our continuous provision for example; Chinese culture books in quiet areas, chopstick and cutlery into the home corners and Chinese fancy dress into our imaginative/ role play areas.

We have integrated this into our children’s planning and learning journals and linked it all to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which is the curriculum the children’s learning is linked to.  At Paintpots Manchester we ensure equality is promoted in the setting at all times and ensure the children have knowledge about diversity by celebrating a different country each month. We also ensure the children have a variety of learning options which is linked to the children’s ethnicity and background who attend the setting, as well as other cultures to ensure they learn and gain an understanding about the wider world around them.

Wow!!!! Were to begin.. this is by far the best nursery I could have sent my children too. The staff are extremely... friendly helpful and ensure the children are cared for and they learnt so much. My children settled really well and have both enjoyed being here. Seeing them so happy and always excited for the next day at paintpots Manchester makes me feel so at ease leaving them. They are always involving parents in everything and make you feel like one big family. A massive thank you to everyone who works there and all you have done. Looking forward to extending our family into their welcoming nursery again in the future.read more

Sent my step-son here for over 2 years before he started school. Perfect location, great staff and most importantly, he... loved it. Only issue was the refurbishment of the building taking place, but they even managed to use that as a learning experience and the kids all loved the builders and diggers opposite!!read more

I sent my child to this Nursery after having sent his 2 older siblings. I work in the City Centre and they love the... place, they all did. There are staff that have been there for over 10 years, location is fantastic and whilst the recent renovation works have not been ideal, it hasn't affected the care one bit. Somehow, they even find a way to make activities that involve the construction materials. Can't recommend highly enough!!read more
