Supporting the Local Community
At Shadwell Childcare we believe that it is important to work closely with those within our village community and we always try to use local businesses and providers.
We are lucky to work closely with Shadwell in Bloom who have recently helped us create a wonderful new outdoor space (The Rainbow Garden) We have flower beds where we have watched daffodils grow and are now waiting for the remaining seeds and bulbs we have planted to come up. We will also be planting our own strawberries and some vegetables to follow the changes from seeds to yummy snacks! To protect the growing plants, flowers, fruits and vegetables as they grow the children have made the most wonderful scarecrows who are all standing tall. The Shadwell in Bloom team also built a 5* bug hotel. It is truly amazing. The pull-out drawers allow children to change the materials we are using between the levels to see what other bugs and insects we can attract and as you can see it looks fantastic.
Our visits to St Paul’s Church to learn about Christmas and Easter are always exciting with lots of singing and activities and we learn so much whilst in the beautiful building.
We also support the local village football team and love to cheer them on – Go Shadwell United! We understand a healthy lifestyle and enjoying sport from an early age is so beneficial and we are delighted to be able to help in supporting the local team. We also support local sports providers 5 Star sports and Little Lions Rugby to offer exciting multisports throughout the holidays.
We also take part in fundraising days such a Comic Relief and Red Nose Days. Not only do we raise money for wonderful causes but we have lots of fun too!
It is also important for us to support local teenagers with Duke of Edinburgh placements and work experience for college students ensuring we offer experience to a wide range of people.
