We are getting excited as our fundraiser event gets closer. If you have any questions about our pedal push or you require a sponsor form then please speak to a member of the nursery team.
We will also be holding an Easter Raffle where you can win one of five Easter hampers. Tickets are available now for 50p, please speak to a member of the team if you would like to purchase these. All money raised will go towards our summer celebration 🎉
Thankyou for your continued support ❤️


A course starting soon locally for those thinking about getting an introduction to play in early education. There are a few spaces available, please contact Melinda to find out more.


Next Wednesday from 2.15pm, outside the front of school, come and get your hot drink and cereal bar to help raise funds for the children in school 🥰


On Thursday we will celebrate world book day by joining the school with hosting a pyjama day; children and staff are welcome to wear their favourite pj’s if they would like to.
All week we will be sharing and exploring our favourite stories.
Please log on to the learning journals for some special stories from the nursery team 📚


A gentle reminder that the children have 'group time' from 2:30-2:45pm Monday to Thursday. Group time helps us develop our social & listening skills as well as learning lots of other things, together as a group. It can be very disruptive for the children to have adults picking up at this time. Please can children be collected between 2:45-3pm. If you require an earlier pick up, please let a member of staff know, we can make this before group time starts at 2:30.
Thankyou for your continued support.


Next Thursday (3rd March) is World book day!
This year the nursery are joining the school in celebrating with a pyjama day! The children are welcome to wear their pyjamas to nursery if they would like to.


** Reminder **
Please make sure forms are handed back this week

Pre-School eye testing is to take place at nursery on 02/03/2022
for all children born between 1st march 2017 and 28th February 2018.
Consent forms will be handed out today at the end of the day and must be returned to nursery before the 02/03/2022.


Just a reminder it is the Februart break, children return to Nursery on Monday 21st February! Happy holidays 😃

There is a large amount of unclaimed ’lost’ items in nursery, please speak to a member of staff when we return if you would like to look in the box to see if any of these items belong to your child.
It is really important to name the items your child brings to nursery. The staff encourage the children to be as independent as possible, but if things do get left somewhere then them being named makes it easier to identify who they belong to.
we currently have a child who is missing a pair of red adidas jogging bottoms, if these have came home with your child accidentally, please let us know.
Thankyou 💕


This term's nursery newsletter is now available on the learning journals, it has some updates and important dates for your diaries! Please let us know if you have any problems accessing this.
