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🐯
