Tadpoles Nursery School hopes to bring Christmas cheer to care home
Claire Dimpfl, Headteacher of Tadpoles Nursery School hopes to bring some festive spirit to residents at Ellesmere Care Home. The nursery has a close relationship with the residents of the home with weekly visits and activities arranged between the residents and the children attending Tadpoles Nursery School.
The covid-19 outbreak throughout this year has meant that care homes have been stopped from outside visitation and so the normal activities have been unable to go ahead. To combat this Dimpfl and the staff of Tadpoles hope to host their annual Christmas Concert Online for residents to watch as well as sending messages and cards from the children.
