My first role was an angel in the nursery nativity. I spotted my mum halfway through and shouted over someone else’s lines to ask if she liked my costume. I’ve learnt not to do that now.
The highest pay cheque my mother ever received funded the building of a nursery school in Shepherd’s Bush – the school cost well over three times the money she donated to the making of the film ‘The Palestinian.’ Unsurprisingly this always goes unmentioned in the press.
I get asked a lot what books I recommend for a nursery, home library, etc., and I always tell parents to start with what they loved as children, what they want to share, and broaden out from there.
My nan was a nursery maid. Most people weren’t in big houses. They were maids of all work.
All the kids from my nursery school are still in touch.
When I started to play in school, I didn’t have an idol as such, I didn’t really like football in my nursery days. I used to go three times a week due to my brother’s influence and also because our friends used to go as well.
I knew what I wanted to do for my entire life, from nursery to university. I’ve always been geared towards wanting to act. I’ve stuck with it, dedicated time to it.
When I was in nursery school, the teachers asked me, y’know, ‘What does your dad do for a living?’ So I said ‘He helps women get pregnant!’ They called my mom and they were like, ‘What exactly does your husband do?’
My first club was FT Gern. I joined through my parents and friends. My father played for them and a friend from nursery school took me to training once. I was five at the time.
Habit is the nursery of errors.
In a nursery, if you don’t take care of those plants, your profits get lost real quickly. You have to weed. You have to water. You have to nurture. Also, you have to take care of your employees in such a way that they do the same.
If I write a book, it has to be so awesome. It has to be next level, to prove mysel. Just like if you are an athlete and you want to rap, you better bring the bars. Don’t come in with nursery rhymes.
A true poet does not bother to be poetical. Nor does a nursery gardener scent his roses.
I was a housepainter and a landscape nursery man, and all these various odd jobs I had, and started doing community theater.
Of course, it’s hard to get interested in the whole idea of government. Nothing ever changes, especially people saying ‘nothing ever changes,’ despite the fact their kid now has a free nursery place and their aunt was forced to work despite having dementia.
I’m very superstitious. I come from a family that’s big on not painting the nursery until the baby is home.
I would get fit after having each of my children but it was always slightly tainted with guilt because I would feel guilty if they were with a nanny or at nursery while I was working out.
The footballers’ wives I know, they’re teachers, midwives. They want to do something useful. One is working at my son’s nursery, on her hands and knees, in Converse and jeans, teaching kids to count.
I was a nursery school teacher, and I worked with youth groups. I loved that job. It was exhausting, but you got a lot back – all their purity and insight and innocence is so on the surface, and they’re so unrepressed; they’d really scream at you and then give you a massive kiss.
Bat for Lashes
I have felt the force of what governments can do. I remember my elder son being in the first cohort of kids who got a free nursery place, I remember the palliative care my mother got at home as I watched her die.
I wonder if the nursery and the chamber of horrors are as far apart as people think?
In 1996, Trump had crashed a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a charity opening a nursery school for children with AIDS. Trump, who had never donated to the charity, stole a seat onstage that had been saved for a big contributor.
I remember everyone in my nursery school class getting a carton of milk before the day started. Only, I got mine about 20 minutes later than everyone else because it had to be kept on the radiator for a short while. I liked warm milk when I was small.
My father was the doyen of the divorce barristers. He was an extremely erudite and very famous divorce barrister. So that, when I was a little boy in the nursery, instead of a story like ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,’ I used to get ‘The Duchess and the Seven Correspondents.’
Happy is he who still loves something he loved in the nursery: He has not been broken in two by time; he is not two men, but one, and he has saved not only his soul but his life.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
I’m on my own so I do everything. I think with any mum, guilt is a major factor. You feel guilty dropping your kid off at nursery and going off to work all day. It’s so tough to juggle everything, to get it right all the time.
Composers now just don’t have the depth of inspiration for melody. Most of the lyrics of the pop songs you hear today are repetitious. They’re almost nursery rhymes, as if written by children – which they are.
I earned my first steady paycheck watering rose bushes at a nursery for a dollar an hour.
It seems like some of my favorite songs have almost like a nursery rhyme vibe to them.
My upbringing was very basic working-class on the outskirts of Nottingham. My mother, Glenis, was a nursery nurse, looking after special-needs children, and my father, Brian, became the manager of a lace factory after working his way up as an apprentice.
I refuse to consign the whole male sex to the nursery. I insist on believing that some men are my equals.
I like a very dark house, just black. I sit there and just think. Once I’m still and quiet inside, I’ll begin. It’s very personal; it has to be. One song may be Bach, the next blues, a song from TV, or a nursery rhyme or jazz piece.
Okay, this is a secret, but I think that nursery rhymes are the most relaxing and fun songs.
‘Goodnight Moon’ is a staple of any nursery bookshelf. So, too, are ‘Harold and the Purple Crayon’ and ‘Madeline.’ These books are just as much a part of mainstream reading culture as ‘The Catcher in the Rye,’ and they are passed down from generation to generation.
I like Fisher Price music, nursery rhymes, and the alphabet song.
