The medium term planning is on our notice board for you to view, if you would like a copy emailed to you please let us know. The “Wow” words are on the white board.
 

Safety.

 

As we are now full from January, mornings and afternoons, we would ask you to heighten your awareness in and around the car park area as we have seen some minor incidents in the past.

 

The Children are your responsibility until they come over the inner door to the hall so please ensure your child hangs their coat up and then passes through the inner door before leaving the premises.

 

This area is always very busy with children and parents entering and leaving.

 

At the end of a session, I will not call out a child’s name if their parent / carer are on a mobile

 

 

Sponsor days. 5/6th March 2019

 

Sponsorship forms will be given out at the end of this term, which is the only fundraising event we carry out for the nursery itself.

 

All monies raised help us maintain and enhance our equipment. More details to follow.

 

Bad weather

 

If we encounter really bad weather we will always notify you by email and post a message on our website.

Please note we are governed by the closing of other schools around us.

 

Open day

 

I would like you to know that we received so many positive comments on the format and behaviour of the children on Open day.

 

They were particular impressed that the children learnt so many songs and behaved so well in front of such a large audience.

 

 

Football sessions.

 

These will commence the week beginning the 14th January.

 

GA Sports will be sending out their paperwork on our return.

 

Paper and Card

 

We always need paper and card. Do you know of any suppliers who would be willing to donate some to us? 

.
 

Mobile / Email updates.

 

Some parents may have been given new phones for Christmas so if anyone has changed their contact details, either phone or email please ensure you keep us informed to ensure our records are accurate and up to date

 

School places

 

If you are applying for a school place for your child, this has to be in by 15th January 2019. If you feel you need to discuss this further please come to see me.



 

Outside agencies.

 

Several agencies will be coming in to talk to the children this term. The first is the dentist on the Tuesday 2nd April.  If parents have any contacts for other agencies that would benefit the children please let us know.

Junk Modelling.

 

We are collecting bottles, boxes etc. to help in junk modelling during the first week back.

 

Please be mindful that we cannot accept any containers that have had nuts etc. due to allergies within nursery.

Photocopying

 

Do you have any contacts that would be willing to do some photocopying for us? 

 

 

 

 

Parent volunteers.

 

We would welcome any parent who wishes to volunteer to help on computers and IPad use or indeed any other skills they feel might be useful for nursery and the children.

 

Please let Karen Lucas know if you are interested

.

 

Peppa Pig .

 

There are a few places still left to join this activity, it starts from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday 8th January and runs for 6 weeks. The cost is £3.00 per session totals £18.

 

We have had a lot of interest but we now need your confirmation and money to secure places for those who have verbally committed.

 

If it is not your child’s session you are more than welcome to come in for the hour.

 

Collecting.

 

We would appreciate donations of any old toys or jigsaw together with old wellington boots for our garden area.

 

Should we receive duplicated items we will be passing these onto charity.

Lost property.

 

We always display lost property items and any property that has not been claimed at the end of the term will either be given to charity or destroyed.

 

To reduce these please ensure that your children’s clothing have labels with their name on clearly displayed.

 

 

Nappy changing.

 

If your child is in nappies and will need changing can you please supply them to us as well as wipes.

 

Changing bags.

 

Can you please only bring them in if your child needs to be changed.  We always have spare clothes in case of accident.
