Leigh's Nurseries Newcastle

Being A Buddy!


Happy Friday everyone!

The Sunflowers love taking on the role of being a buddy to their younger peers. We encourage the Sunflowers to interact with the Snowdrops and Sweetpeas as we pride ourselves on being an open free flow environment where the children can learn skills from each other.

The older children love this responsibility and thrive off caring for their younger peers. Being a buddy has a lot of benefits, including enhancing children’s learning behaviours such as taking turns, listening, sharing knowledge, helping each other and praising one another. The children love choosing stories and talking about the pictures to their younger peers. The younger peers are always very excited when they come to share their favourite stories and develop a special bond with them. At Leigh’s Nurseries we always look at the individual child and always follow a Montessori/curiosity approach to enhance the development of all children.

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
