'Bluebelle House' opens at Northwood College

Published on isbi School News dated Tuesday 20th of March 2012

Northwood College has renamed its innovative Early Years Centre as Bluebelle House and its Nursery and Reception girls will now be known as 'Bluebelles.'

On Tuesday 21 February 2012, the girls, parents, governors and staff were invited for the official renaming of Bluebelle House. The Bluebelles performed a short medley of 'bluebell' inspired songs, before special guest, The Worshipful the Mayor of Hillingdon, Councillor Mary O'Connor MBE, unveiled a plaque to mark the occasion. To conclude this special day, the girls were given a small 'Bluebelle' pin badge to wear and a potted bluebell bulb to take home.

Bluebelle House, which houses both Nursery and Reception classes, was purpose built in 2009, specifically for Early Year's education. The emphasis is on 'learning through play', enabling the girls to develop their literacy and numeracy skills. Girls can join the Nursery in the term after their third birthday. This can either be in September, January or April. Flexible hours are available including full and half day sessions.

Mrs Hina Thaker, Head Mistress of the Junior School said: "We are very proud of our innovative, modern and purpose built Early Years Centre. The bright well equipped classrooms and extensive outdoor play areas provide a perfect, safe and stimulating area for our girls to develop both academically and physically. With this in mind, we have decided to rename the building 'Bluebelle House'. We feel this new name reflects the warm and friendly atmosphere created in the building by both the staff and the girls, as well as providing a fitting link to our smart Northwood College Blue uniforms."

Parents interested in joining Nursery or Reception are warmly welcomed to come and visit Bluebelle House and find out for themselves what makes Early Years' education at Northwood College so special.
