Christmas Party – Peppa Pig theme.

 

This will be held on Tuesday 18th December in normal session times. This will consist of party games, with visits from Father Christmas, Peppa Pig and a snack / lunch.

 

Father Christmas will be giving out presents at the end and the children will exit as they receive their present. This is likely to take a little longer getting the children out.

 

Some parents have still not paid their money, which we require if you want your child to attend. If your child’s money is not paid by 2nd November we will have to assume your child is not attending.

 

 

Halloween – Alzheimers charity event.

 

We will charge the children a £1 entrance fee and have a donation box in the Hall from Monday the 29th October.

 

This will be an opportunity for your child to dress up if they wish and we will be having fun games etc. and a snack will be provided for them.

 

If it is not your child’s session they are more than welcome to attend but please do let me know so that we can manage numbers etc.

 

 

Christmas card – Post Box

 

This will out from Monday 3rd December, if you would like a list of your child’s friend’s please ask a staff member.

 

 

GA Football & Fitness

 

There are still a few vacancies on these courses on a Monday afternoon and Thursday morning. The cost is £2.50 for a 35-minute session. Can you please let me asap if your child would like to attend both or either of these

 

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.

Little Urchins

 

The photos will be collected on Friday 2nd November, which is the last day for ordering. Any orders after this date will incur a £4.00 charge

 

Zoo Lab

 

This is coming to nursery on Wednesday 7th November – morning only.

 

They will bring in various animals that the children can touch or hold and learn about.

 

If it is not your child’s session I can take the first 8 children of those parents who have informed me they would like to attend.



 

CVOP badge man – Xmas gifts. - 6th November

 

They will be at nursery at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 a.m. to take pictures of your child for Christmas badges, magnets etc.

 

If this is not your child’s session your are more than welcome to come along for their photo to be taken.

 

Open day – 4th December

 

This is on Tuesday the 4th December and provides the opportunity for parents to talk to their child’s key person to see how they are progressing and to look around the nursery. The time the children will be singing is 9:15 a.m. followed by a Peppa Pig musical activity. Parents are welcome to stay (only two adults per child due to fire regulations) until 11:15 for a cup of tea and cakes and to talk to their child’s keyperson.

 

There will be no afternoon singing as the children are so young and it is too much to ask them to sit for such a long time. If your child is an afternoon older child and likes to sing they are more than welcome to attend the morning.

We will be having a craft afternoon, which we hope all afternoon parents will come along too both participate and support. Parents are welcome from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.

 

If it is not your child’s session you are more than welcome to attend either one, so all parents can choose either morning or afternoon regardless of sessions. It would be helpful on managing numbers if you could let me have your preference please?

 

Tea, coffee, cakes and raffle tickets will be on sale with the draw taking place on Friday 14th December.

 

Christmas jumpers or other forms of themed clothing to be worn. We will also be selling reindeer feed that the children will have made that week.

 

Bad weather

 

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

 

MacMillan Cancer event

 

A massive thank you to all those who attended and donated as we raised £139.74

 

Child safety.

 

Please always be alert when you are in or around the nursery. Also be very wary of cars and others when playing in the car park.

 

The children are your responsibility until they have passed within the inner doors of nursery leading to the hall itself, and should not be left alone in the corridor outside the toilets, as this is normally a very busy area.

 

Please ensure you watch your child hang up their coats and enter the main hall doors before leaving.

 

Forms to be returned.

 

I will be sending out questionnaires to see how your child has settled into nursery.

 

It would be beneficial for us all if you could complete these.

 

Some parents have still not returned there “All About Me books”.

 

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.

 

Contacting Nursery

 

If your child is going to be absent or will be late collecting your child, can you please ring us on 01322 525021 or our mobile 07804 650095.

 

If your child has sickness or diarrhoea they will not be able to attend nursery until they have been clear for at least 48 hours.

 

 Homework / Book work.

 

This will start for the older children this term who will be going to school next September.

 

The homework will come out on a Monday and returned whenever as we are preparing them for transition into mainstream schooling. This is not compulsory but we believe this will be of benefit to all.

 

January sessions.

 

If you would like to increase or decrease your sessions from January, can you please let me know asap?

 

We will have very few sessions available but want to make sure we give parents the opportunity if possible.

 

There will no room to change after January as I will be full until the September 2019.
