The children in Milford are enjoying their new construction area. We were lucky enough to get some tree trunks when they were cutting down some trees opposite us, plus a very kind husband of one of the staff made some bricks for us. High vis jackets and safety helmets along with lots of tools and a mixer…..hours of fun

Today we celebrate Emma, Tiny Tots Room Leader in Milford, 18 years service with Happy Days. Well wishes were received from many parents past and present, along with a gift from Happy Days. Well done and many thanks to Emma
The children in Milford had an unexpected visit from the ice cream van today. As we pass the van outside the school each day the children always ask ‘Can we stop’ but we have to get them back to Happy Days. Today we asked the van to surprise the children. They were super excited
Happy Days in Milford is starting a Parent and Toddler Group. Families from the community can come along and enjoy a coffee and biscuit whilst the children play, accompanied by qualified childcare practitioners. The Stay and Play sessions in HAVERFORDWEST also continue to operate. For further details contact either of the settings.
On 1st March 1999 Happy Days opened its first full day care provision on the marina complex in Milford Haven. A party was held to celebrate our 20 year birthday, but as a new Costa Coffee was opening nearby on this special day, we went to visit and wish them well. The children were given mini cups of hot chocolate and balloons.
Children in HAVERFORDWEST have had a busy time learning all about people who help us. With visits from police and police dog, ambulance crew and St. Johns Ambulance the children have enjoyed lots of new experiences including bandaging, listening to heartbeats, sitting in the vehicles and of course, stroking the dog.
As part of the theme of water, the children in Milford have been out and about to look at streams. We chose the day with the heaviest rain and also enjoyed some major water play with the hose in the garden. Thank goodness for water proof suits and wellies
Both nurseries have embraced the Curiosity approach to learning. the children enjoyed visiting local charity shops to find ‘treasures’ for nursery. We now have areas in each age room dedicated to open ended learning through curiosity and investigation – the children are loving it and the plastic toys are no longer of interest.
In April 2019 Pembrokeshire is joining the 30 hour childcare offer for Wales. This will entitle working parents of 3 year olds to financial support for 30 hours of education and childcare . Details will follow but information sessions are to be held as follows. Happy Days will shortly be outlining how the scheme can be accessed at our sites.
Staff from both settings put on their glad rags and joined together for a fun filled Christmas Party. Staff from Golden manor nursery in Pembroke also joined us and the games included ‘pass the baby’,’Hungry Caterpillar challenge’ and ‘Rattle and roll’.
