Dear Parents/ Carers

Chinese New Year
Just a quick reminder about our event day on Friday (16th February) where we will be celebrating Chinese New Year. We would like the children to enjoy the day of activities by dressing in Chinese clothing, red/ gold clothing, or as it is the year of the dog maybe some little doggies. The staff put a lot of effort into the event days, dressing the nursery and themselves to support the event and they really enjoy seeing the children make the most of the activities and taking part in the day. Just a few of the activities will be making lucky money pockets, decorating a Chinese dragon to take part in a parade and trying Chinese cuisines.

Shrove Tuesday
Today the children will be taking part in Shrove Tuesday by tasting various pancakes at snack times along with taking part in pancake obstacle courses to help develop their gross motor skills.

Our Blossom Tree
We would like to see a few more leaves filling our blossom tree with activity ideas, thank you to all the parents and children who have contributed so far we love hearing your feedback.

Baby Unit Outside Play
The babies can now enjoy more outside play under a new lovely wooden shelter, even when it is raining. The outside area is going to be developed to a similar theme as the main nursery bottom garden area, with a focus of large sand, water and block play with lots of den building.

Collecting from the Tweenies Room
If you have a child in the Tweenies' Room you must go into the room on collection to get feedback notes from the staff. Please do not stand outside in the corridor as this can make it difficult for other parents and staff that are trying to answer the door.

Dad's Week
We will be sending out the confirmation slips with the days you have been allocated in the next few days, these events take a lot of organising to ensure staff are deployed appropriately to maintain ratios. If you have not yet returned your slip please contact the office today.

Kind Regards

Helen Poyser
Managing Director

Toddlers have a water play area now within their room to support continuous provision. This is another exciting area for the children to play and explore with water, whilst giving them the opportunity to become 'experts'.
