Parents we have been informed that the council are resurfacing the estate road tomorrow or Thursday. We were previously informed that the work would be carried out on a Saturday, however it has been brought forward. Please park considerately for the residents and allow a little extra time for dropping off and collecting your children, we hope that it will not be too disruptive.
Many Thanks

Parents, there are roadwork signs at either end of Highfield Road staying that the road will be closed for a week as of Monday with July.

We have spoken to the Council about this and they have assured me that the road dressing will take place on Saturday 16th July which should not affect nursery in any way.

Don't forget it is Safari day tomorrow, the staff have done a fantastic job of theming the nursery. The children will be learning lots about different animals you may find on safari and their environments. Encourage your child to join in the fun by helping them dress as their favourite animal they may find on safari🐯

Wanted…

A Nursery Apprentice for a group of adorable children.

If you want this choice position, have a cheery disposition!
Lovely smiles, always.
Play games, all day.
You must be kind you must be trusting,
Fairly organised and good at dusting.
Take us on outings, play football,
sing songs, tell jokes.
Never be grumpy or sad,
never give us foods that are bad.
Love us as a son or daughter and help us to explore with water.
If you don’t tell us to be quiet,
we will never give you cause to riot.
We won’t hide your spectacles so you can’t see,
put toads on your seat or pepper in your tea.
Hurry quickly.
Many Thanks Sincerely
La Petite Academy

Today the Preschool children will be talking and learning all about football. Where and when the game was first invented, looking at old football kits which were worn when football was first introduced to modern day kits. What material a football is made from and also talking about what skills are needed for the game. They will have the opportunity to have a quick peek at the England game this afternoon if they wish to during our free flow session. They will also be able to hear the game on the radio, where we take the opportunity to talk to the children about the commentators job and how radios work to transmit information.

La Petite Academy is a friendly, unique nursery which has been established since October 1995. It is run by the hands on Managing Director, Helen Poyser who oversees the two managers.

Based in a large one-story building, situated in a quiet residential suburb of Littleover, the nursery is registered to care for 78 children in total, to ensure a high quality of childcare is maintained we restrict our daily numbers to 66, children are aged from 3 months to 5 years, together with a Breakfast and Afterschool club for children up to the age of 11 years.

The nursery is conveniently situated away from the main road, in a small crescent opposite the green, and has parking spaces directly in front of the building. La Petite Academy are renowned for a high quality service and remain very successful due to word of mouth and personal recommendations from parents; we have never advertised since opening.

We pride ourselves on offering a warm, inviting atmosphere where we can give you individual attention and are flexible with your needs and concerns.
