Message from Sure Start Children’s Centres on Halloween Safety

Posted on

As we are excited and getting ready for Halloween, Sure Start Children’s Centres would like to remind everyone from the young to the young at heart to be mindful and remain safe during this spooktacular time.

Do:

  • Only trick or treat in your own neighbourhood unless you are with an adult​
  • Stay in well lit areas where there are plenty of houses​
  • Make sure an adult knows the area you plan to visit and what time you’ll be back​
  • Look out for ‘no callers please’ posters and respect your neighbours​
  • Keep to pavements and trick or treat on one side of the street before crossing safely to the other side – don’t criss-cross
  • Wait to eat any treats until you get home so that an adult can check them​

Don’t:

  • Don’t cut through back alleys, ginnels or fields, and don’t trick or treat too far from home​
  • Don’t go alone – take an adult with you or stay in a group​

Have you thought about a career in Early Years?

Posted on Updated on

Every day is different, and you will be in the privileged position of helping young children develop and learn through play and care.

        

 

Key skills must include…

🥰 A warm smiley face that makes children feel safe and secure.

 

🎤 The ability to sing (in tune is not a necessity) but in front of a crowd is essential!

📖 You must be patient and kind with the ability to accept a couple of interruptions during story time.

🦖 The preferred candidate must have a good sense of humour and a good imagination, if a child requests that you are a dinosaur, you will be the best roar-some dinosaur you can be!

🦸‍♀️ Knowledge of aliens, superheroes and children’s characters would be advantageous.

👀 You must feel comfortable telling everybody in the same room as you that you are going to the bathroom. You must also be prepared to leave the building feeling comfortable with unknown substances on your clothing.

😘 And finally you must be prepared to distribute hugs when needed, ensuring children feel special and loved.

There is simply no other job quite like it ❤️

What we’ve learned from the Community Get Together at Hove Edge Bowling Club

Posted on Updated on

    

On Tuesday 13th of September, Staying Well and Focus4Hope, arranged an event at Hove Edge bowling club.  The aim of the event was to provide information to local residents of Hipperholme and Hove Edge on services are locally available to help them lead a healthier and happier life.

On the day the following groups and services attended; Hipperhome Christ Church, Memory Lane Cafe, Active Calderdale, Better Living Service, Invictus Wellbeing, Calderdale Dementia Hub, Vita Minds, Cromwell Bottom Wildlife group and our very own NHP Neighbourhood team and Sure Start Children’s centres.

All these organisations offer fantastic opportunities to meet others, gain support around dementia, move more indoors and out, access emotional wellbeing services, achieve a healthier weight, access excursions and other local events. Many of those we endeavour to publish in our online blogs to which you can sign up to.

We enjoyed refreshments and cakes.  Focus4Hope delighted us with their culinary skills providing delicious hot food of Vegetarian Chili and Sausage casserole, Crust and Crumb offered delicious woodfired pizzas made on the day.

As well as valuable networking, we had a unique opportunity to listen to a talk from West Yorkshire Police about personal safety at home, out & about and current scams.  The event concluded with a meditation session from Tai Chi Tigers, concentrating on breathing and gentle stretching exercises.

 

The Hipperholme and Hove Edge residents who came, gave our Staying Well workers very positive feedback, saying they enjoyed the day, as well as encouraging requests for more such events in the future. People signed up for various services and there was active interest in taking up Tai Chi, while West Yorkshire Police received numerous requests for home safety visits following their talk on crime prevention.

Thank you to all for your contribution into making this event a success and thank you to all who visited.
