Our latest news
We’re thrilled to welcome Stonehouse Childcare, our beautiful new nursery in Leyland, to the Just Childcare family!
Stonehouse Childcare is now a part of our wonderful group of nurseries and we’re absolutely delighted to welcome the team members, children and parents to the group.
30 years of high-quality care and education in Leyland
Stonehouse Childcare is an Ofsted ‘Good’ setting, featuring vibrant and spacious playrooms as well as a large outdoor area complete with a sports field, outdoor classroom and even a maze. The nursery has a fantastic reputation in its community, having served families in Leyland for over 30 years.
Just Childcare’s Director, David Johnson said, “Stonehouse Childcare has a long-established reputation as one of the best nurseries in the Leyland area, providing exceptional care in a nurturing and inspiring environment.
“The setting is close to our nurseries in Preston and Chorley, and shares our ethos that children should be at the centre of everything we do, so naturally we see them as a perfect fit for the Just Childcare group.”
“We look forward to working alongside the nursery’s long-standing team of childcare professionals to develop the success of their settings further.”
We’re very excited to announce that our family has grown with the addition of eight nurseries in the Bristol and South Gloucestershire area!
Little Acorns and Stepping Stones are now part of our group of wonderful nurseries, and we’re absolutely delighted.
Halloween is coming and we all know what that means: it’s pumpkin time! Making a spooky pumpkin is a great way to get creative and have some messy fun with your child. But what about all those insides that go in the bin once the pumpkin has been hollowed out?
Use your pumpkin seeds to make a tasty Halloween snack
There’s no need for any parts of the pumpkin to go to waste. Not only can you use the flesh to cook a delicious Pumpkin Soup, you can also make a scrummy snack using the seeds! We’ve put together this simple ‘Toasted Pumpkin Seeds with Cinnamon’ recipe so you and your family can sit back and enjoy a healthy snack after all that carving.
The instructions involve wiping, rinsing, stirring and spreading – which means children of all ages can help you at different stages. So instead of throwing your seeds away this Halloween, why not have a bit more fun in the kitchen instead?
If you make our tasty cinnamon pumpkin seeds at home, we’d love to hear about it. Send us your photos and let us know how else you make use of your pumpkin leftovers on Facebook!
The Butterflies team and children are absolutely thrilled to be back at our nursery in Prenton following our huge refurbishment!
