Messages from Rooms

Babies and 1-2’s
To all our new children please can you email family photos so that we can make the children’s family books.

2-3’s
If your child is potty training please ensure to bring lots of spare clothes to Nursery.

Pre-School
School places have been confirmed please ensure you let Eve know which school your child will be going to!

Be prepared for all weather!

Please can all children bring sun hats and rain coats to Nursery as the weather has been a bit of both lately! We provide Nivea factor 50 sun cream however if you prefer your child to use a different one then this must be labelled and in nursery each day.

Name our Rooms

We need your help! We want to come up with names for each of our rooms so we are asking parents to suggest ideas. Please take a slip in reception and once completed please place it in our VOTE box.

Mud Kitchen Collection

mud2-v1If you have any old utensils, pots or pans, cutlery or anything that we can use for our Mud Kitchen we would be very grateful for any donations!

Buggies and Scooters

When you drop your children to Nursery please do not bring your buggy/scooters inside they are becoming a serious fire hazard please drop your buggy/scooters to the buggy park and then bring your child in. Please do the same on collection – collect your child first and then go to collect the buggy.
