Leigh's Nurseries Newcastle

Time To Relax!


Happy Friday everyone!

We love to see all the children busy and engaged at nursery but they still need down time to relax and emotionally unwind to help them to stay healthy and alert. Giving the children’s minds a break from constant stimulation allows them time to take in new things and have new thoughts, offering great opportunity for their creativity and imagination to flow.

Here at Leigh’s chill out time is encouraged and is part of our daily routine. We have lots of inviting quiet spaces set out all around nursery where children can go and spend time whenever they like or need. We also have set times for relaxation together role modelled by our staff. This is carried out by using a range of resources and activities from simply listening to music, enjoying a story, cloud watching outside, yoga or exploring sensory objects.

We work closely with parents to learn about each child’s home rest and sleep routines to help make them as comfortable as possible while with us and meet their individual needs. Helping our nurseries really feel like a home away from home.┬áRelaxation brings many great benefits for children’s minds and bodies. It helps reduce stress and anxiety, calms and clears their minds, sharpens their concentration and promotes their general good health.

Lots of love as always!
