Letter Play at Leighs!


Hi everyone – I hope you’re all having an amazing week so far!

In this post I really wanted to share with you all a fab activity that some of our Snapdragon’s and Sunflowers recently enjoyed! We love to get creative every single day in our nurseries and this enthusiasm channels right through the staff into your children whenever they’re in our care. They absolutely loved talking about the different letters in front of them during letter play, whilst also repeating the sounds of the various letters that they could see. Searching for the letters using their fingers was made even more colourful and exciting through the use of paint!

Not only did the children have so much fun, they also actively improved upon their fine motor skills and hand eye co-ordination. Learning different letters and sounds can be an overwhelming obstacle, which is why we try our absolute hardest to make it as fresh and enjoyable as possible. We actively encouraged the children to seek out the letters in their own names which is a huge step in their development!

See you on Wednesday in our next post!

Lots of love,

From the team at Leigh’s x
