The Adventures of Eli!


Eli is our friendly zebra who likes to go on adventures with the children! Each week he chooses someone to go home with and the children get so excited to find out who’s turn it will be!
We use Eli to support the children’s personal, social and emotional development. He is great at helping new children settle into nursery or helping with any changes at home such as a new baby or toilet training. Through our amazing parent partnership we find out if Eli can help in any way and pack resources in his bag that can aid support too.
The children are always super excited to bring him back to nursery and share their stories about what he has been up to with all of their friends. It’s always so lovely to see what has been shared in his diary and the children take great pride in showing us too.
Lots of love,
Leigh and the team xxx
