We were delighted to welcome the children of Etchells Nursery School to our Heald Green practice this week. Miss Gilham and Miss Laurie brought groups on Tuesday and Thursday. Our opticians Ian and Sue showed the children the room where eyes are tested (the children specially liked the special chair!) and some of the tests they use, while receptionist Kath told them about her job and let them try on some of the glasses. Lesley showed them a tray of foods which help to keep our eyes healthy. The children were extremely well behaved and a delight to meet. They went home with a goody bag each, with eye health information for their parents and some treats for them (an eyeball bouncy ball brought some smiles!) We are looking forward to hearing about the roleplays they carry out back at the nursery and seeing whether any of them enter our “design a pair of pipe cleaner glasses competition” to win a large jar of eyeballs (actually flying saucers, but the closest sweet to an eyeball we could find!) Watch this space – parents will load photos of their children wearing their designs to our facebook page in the next few days…..
