Red Balloon flying high with fun day
RED Balloon took over the Martyrs Green Montessori nursery in Ockham in August 2016 and it has gone from strength to strength ever since.
So there will be something of a celebratory air at its Big Free Family Fun day tomorrow (Saturday) in honour of the anniversary.
A petting zoo, forest school, face-painting and barbecue will be among the fun things putting smiles on faces for the gathering at its Pound Farm home in Old Lane, Ockham, 10.30am-2pm.
A spokesman said: “This will give local families with young children the opportunity to have loads of fun and check out the new Red Balloon at Martyrs Green nursery setting.
“The building and its lovely outside play areas have enjoyed an extensive refurb and many new features have been rolled out to the children and parents, like forest school, community trips in the Red Balloon minibus and from loads of exciting child-led activities.
“Parents now receive a full colour weekly newsletter with loads of photos and a shared online learning journal for their child with a constant feed of photos and video updates. This is as well as an excellent team of qualified staff, home-cooked, locallysourced breakfast lunch and dinner and a Montessori child-led learning ethos.
“To mark our anniversary at Martyrs Green we have re branded and re named the nursery Red Balloon at Martyrs Green, giving it an identity in line with the rest of the group but we hope the image of the wellies high lights its difference, that being its fabulous countryside location and loads of outdoor space. We see this as being the perfect nursery for children that love adventures inside and out.”
Entrance is free if you prebook, or £5 on the day.
