Lovely adventure this morning in the woods, playing in dens, follow the leader, and singing our songs in the forest, we had so much fun and it’s nice to get back to normality, we made soap this afternoon for the children to take home, as a reminder for them to continue to wash hands. Our theme this month is weather 💙

Merry Christmas to all of our family’s, thank you for all of our cards and presents we really appreciate them all, these are our holiday dates for 2020 any problems let me know, we look forward to seeing everyone on the 6th January 2020 xx ❤️ Caroline Smith


Just a polite notice as we are very flexibile with days, if you find that ur child is poorly with coughs colds and needs calpol to get through the day please could we try and keep them home, as much as we try to illiminate germs etc we have no control over children coughing and runny noses so it’s impossible to keep germs away but we are finding it going round in circles with illnesses and due to it being close to Christmas please be mindful of other children at our settings xx many thanks Caroline smith ❤️


Hiya, on Thursday we would like the children to see Santa, and go on the Santa train, this is £6 per child if you would like your child to see Santa please could you give a donation towards this, thank you xx
