Extra Curricular Activities
Grunty’s Day Care is located on Newton Hall Holiday Park providing us with plenty of opportunity to provide the children with experiences in the natural world such as:
- Natural trails around the caravan park
- Visits to the duck pond
- Visits to the fields to see the horses and cows
- Visits to the park
- Visits to the shop- the children will visit the shop when they are doing baking activities to purchase the ingredients
- Visits to the local Post Office to post letters to our pen friend in Japan
- Treasure hunts
Grunty’s Day Care supports the Local Children’s Hospice Brian House. Each year we carry out fun packed events for the children to raise as much money as we can.
This has included Superhero and Princess day, sponsored bike rides, bake sales and lots, lots more. The children love to take part in the fundraising days and we always have so much fun.

Coach Brian comes to nursery every Thursday afternoon for children aged 2-5 years. The class provides a positive, fun filled football programme for all the children.
Invaluable social skills like listening, sharing, taking turns and teamwork are conscientiously woven into an involving programme that places as much emphasis on simple learning concepts like colours and numbers as it does on fine-tuning a child’s basic balance, agility and co-ordination.

Mel Jones Photography
Mel Jones is a children’s specialist photographer who visits twice a year to take photos of the children at nursery. Mel provides a friendly and personal service that is tailored to the children’s individual needs. Children grow so quickly and this is a lovely way to capture the first few years.

Grunty’s Day Care works in association with Puddle Ducks North Lancashire and Fylde. We recognise that swimming offers children sensory experience and develops confidence in the water that lasts a lifetime. As we are unable to offer swimming directly at nursery we are happy to recommend the classes provided by Puddle Ducks in various locations around the local area.
