Our new September magazine is now available and we've got some great features in there as always, including an article on attachment with children in their early years. We know you've all been chomping at the bit to see more graduation and farm photos too, so we squeezed them in there, added a big photo of a helicopter and even found time to write a story about ducklings and rustle up a tasty curry. I think that counts as every base covered. Enjoy.
Some of the latest news on our website.
We hit the road at Castle Combe race track once again this year, meeting up with families across the nurseries to complete a sponsored lap of the 1.85 mile circuit. We were continuing the good work we started at Chillfest, once again fundraising for The Grand Appeal.
We weren't quite as lucky with the weather this year, as the strong winds threatened to bring rain with them all afternoon, finally hitting us as we started crossing the finish line. It didn't hold us back though, as wave after wave of determined families made it round, showing their support for the cause.
You can find all of the photos from the event in our events gallery, or watch our video below.
We're solidly into summer now and our summer menus have finally launched, beginning from tomorrow. We've got some delicious recipes lined up for all of the children at Snapdragons to enjoy over the coming months, so head over to our healthy eating page to read the menus and find out which dates each one will run on.
As we approach the summer, we're all gearing up for the highlight of the season - the Snapdragons Chillfest. Well, worry no more piratey friends, because Chillfest is not far away. In fact, it's on Saturday 17th June, from 1-4pm.
Our nautical theme has proved a hit in years gone by, so we want to see you all in your best pirate outfits on the day, showing us the weathered sea-sailors that we know you all are.
We'll also be enjoying the musical talents of Jamma de Samba once more, who dazzled us all last year with their rhythmic drums, providing the heartbeat to the afternoon. But we'll also have all of the best activities and stalls, a bouncy castle, the delicious barbecue food, as well as the Father's Day fun too.
Yes, once again, the lucky dads will be able to get free pirate tattoos when they arrive, as well as take part in our tug of war to prove once and for all who the strongest dads out there are.
All the money raised this year will be going to The Grand Appeal for Bristol Children's Hospital and so we'd love to have as many of you there as possible to help. Chillfest will be held at Snapdragons Weston again, but everyone is welcome whether they attend Snapdragons or not - we'd love to have you! But only if you're prepared to walk the plank...
Our new issue of the Snapdragons Magazine is now available both online and (soon) at the nurseries. We've got some great news stories to bring you from all over, including Red Nose Day, Beep Beep Day and the Holi festival. We've also got a fantastic article by Janey Mondal on how we incorporate outdoor learning into our experiences at Snapdragons and many more great features.
Pick up your copy at your nursery soon, or have a read right now.
