News & Events

Here is where you will find out about events we have joined in with at nursery.


Throughout the year everyone at Diddydots Nursery enjoys taking part in various sponsored events and fundraising activities which enable us to buy new equipment, have end of term parties but we mostly do it for the fun whilst taking part. We also like to support our local community. This has included visiting the community libary van, singing to residents of the Dengie Trust and more.



At Diddydots we love celebrating Easter. Many activities are available that week for all children to get involved in. This includes Easter bonnet competition, some baking, exploring the history of Easter and much more. The annual Easter egg hunt is a great success with the Gruffalo coming along to help too.

Themes and focuses

Throughout each term we continue to investigate numbers and colours along with other themes. Rather than have strict themes and focuses. we work flexibly and often look for inspiration from the children regarding topics etc. This allows us to plan to suit  the individual learning of all children at the setting and has included visiting the hairdresser, working at the supermarket, what happens at a construction site and exploring different textures. 


Costume hire

Diddydots Nursery has Peppa pig, her brother Geroge and the Gruffalo costumes that can be hired from us for an event or birthday etc. All children at the nursery are familiar with our charachters as they often come to visit for parties, easter egg hunts or just pop in to see how we all are. Please take a look in our photo gallery for pictures of the costumes. 

The costumes are suitable for adults to wear. For more info or to book the costumes please call us. Prices will be given on enquiry.
