Monday 19th has been declared  a Bank Holiday for the state funeral of HRH Queen Elizabeth.

As a mark of respect, Nursery will remain closed on this day.

In advance of next week’s Amber weather warning, please be aware of our ‘Sun Safe policy’: 

Sun Safe policy

Blue Windmill Nursery aims to protect all children in their care, during extreme heat we will endeavour to:

  • Reduce vigorous physical activities and games
  • Encourage children to play in shady areas of the garden
  • Outdoor play will be restricted – remaining indoors between 10.45am-4.00pm
  • Provide children with plenty of water to drink throughout the session
  • Open windows to allow ventilation of playrooms
  • Limit direct sunshine through windows where possible
  • Make effective use of the air conditioning in the building
  • Use the fixed oscillating fans to create movement of air
  • Follow any specific advice given by local authority/government


We ask that parents/carers

  • Ensure children have sun screen applied before they arrive at Nursery
  • Provide sunscreen for staff to re-apply when necessary during the session
  • Dress children in lightweight, loose clothing – preferably covering shoulders, arms and legs
  • Provide a sun hat


More information on enjoying the sun safely can be viewed on our Newsletters & Notices page

Seems like a long time since our Reindeer Run in December…..but Congratulations 👏 🎉 to everyone that took part- Blue Windmill children raised a MASSIVE £447.00 for Myton Hospices. Thank you to everyone involved.🙂🙂

This morning was definitely a reminder that winter is on its way. The children from our ‘Being 2’ group found ice in the garden. Please remember to send your children to Nursery in warm, waterproof outdoor clothes and wellies – as the children play in the garden every day.
We agree with Wainwright: “there is no ‘bad weather’ just inappropriate clothing”
Gloves and hats are good, although we would discourage long scarves. Please name your child’s belongings to help us keep mix ups to a minimum.🌧🌦❄️💨☔️
