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.

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.

Car park – Due to the high demand of blue badge holders, we do acknowledge that they in particular will have to double park as we only have one disabled parking bay.

Please be mindful of this and all other parents should not double park so as to allow them easier access. Thank you.
 

 

Sponsor days.

As a result of the generosity of parents who worked hard to raise sponsorship we raised a total of £1555.50, which we have now started to spend, and the new toys will be on view and used after Easter.

Some pledges are still due and we would very much appreciate these in quickly so that we can finalise our new equipment purchases.
 

Gardening.

We would very much appreciate any plant donations so that we can plant them in the garden. If anyone would like to volunteer to come in and help the children with gardening, planting etc. it would be much appreciated.

 

Football sessions.

A few places are still available for the GT Sport football / agility sessions. These are on a Thursday morning from 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. and a Monday afternoon, 1:30 to 2:15 p.m. at a cost of £2.50 per session.

Please refer to the GA Booking form which was put into your child’s book bags last term.

 

Royal Wedding party – Thursday 17th May.

Our party will be a traditional one, with old-fashioned games and will be held a.m. & p.m. session times.

 If this day is not your child’s session, you are more than welcome to come in should you wish to.

Can you please let me know if you will be attending so that we can cater for numbers?

 

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.



 

School places..

As soon as you are aware of your child’s school and or nursery place, please can you let us know so that we can start work on their record of transfer paperwork?

All school leavers will have a chance to talk to the keyperson or myself at our open day.

Once we are aware of their choices, we try to work within groups so that the children work with those who will be going to the same place.

 

September In-take

If you have not already, can you please let me know if your child will be staying with us or taking up a state nursery place.

If your child is staying please let me know what sessions you would like

 

Sun Cream

It would be very helpful on sunny days, if you could apply sun cream to your child beforehand and make sure that they have a hat with their name on it to wear for added protection.

We do have sun cream but will only apply it with the parents permission.

 

Peppa Pig Trial session

If this is a success, we will repeat it and book more for the following term.

 

Little urchins Photographer

 Little Urchins will be at nursery on Tuesday & Wednesday 1st / 2nd May. The theme this year will be old-fashioned clothes. The staff will dress all children in the clothes provided.

For the fourth time we will be doing graduation pictures (it always so popular) for those children leaving us to go to school.

We stress that there is no obligation to buy any pictures.

If these dates are not your child’s sessions, you are more than welcome to come in and bring siblings should you wish to.

 

Open Day – Tuesday 19th June.

This provides parents the opportunity to  talk to their child’s key person and to see how they are progressing. The children will be singing for you and doing a Zumbini display.

More details to follow nearer the time.

 

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.

 

Fire engine visit

Dates have yet to be finalised but it will hopefully be in May / June sometime.
