.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. 7/8th March 2018

 

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.


 

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.

 

 

Summer Fun days

 

We are considering opening in the summer holidays from 9-12:00 a.m. for two weeks only. At this stage we are just putting our feelers for those parents who might consider taking this up.

 

We are insured for children up to 8 years old. Can you please let me know if you might be interested?

 

 

Football sessions.

 

These will start after half-term when more consistent good weather is expected.

 

GA Sports will be sending out their paperwork in January

Outside agencies.

 

Several agencies will be coming in to talk to the children this term. The first is the dentist on the 20th February.  If parents have any contacts for other agencies that would benefit the children please let us know.



 

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.

 

Paper and Card

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

 

Photocopying

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

Collecting.

 

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