I would firstly like to welcome all our new parents, I hope all your children have settled in well and are enjoying their time at Monkey Puzzle. There will be many events in the near future where you will have a chance to meet the other parents and get to know the friends of your children. Please look out for future emails, newsletters and posters around the nursery that will inform you of all you need to know!
This month the children had a visit from the dentist. Not all children took part however I will be arranging them to visit us again as I do think it was a valuable experience for the children. They did a simple checkup of which the parent’s received feedback and this also was part of a dental survey for Kingston. They were all very brave and actually they rather enjoyed it. On that note I have asked if parents can provide a tooth brush and toothpaste so the children can brush their teeth after meal times where we can help to teach them good dental hygiene. Only a few have provided this so far so we haven’t been able to implement this as yet , if you haven’t done so please would you be able to provide some as soon as possible . Thank You.
We have started a new dance class every Thursday. DIDI DANCE. The children absolutely love it! A great physical work out whilst learning to follow instruction & learn to dance to the beat!
