Autumn 2017 newsletter

Welcome to the Autumn 2017 edition of our newsletter.

Welcome to our Autumn Newsletter

All of our new children have settled in to our nursery routines well. One of their favourite parts of the day is joining in with our Dough Disco sessions, our Dough Disco sessions help the children with their fine motor skills and get their fingers ready for writing.

What we have been up to in nursery

It has been lovely getting to know all of our new children and seeing the children making new bonds and friendships. We have been doing lots of activities about where we live and who we live with. We love to make photo books with the children so if you would like to send a few photos in of your child with different family members that would be great!

Out and about

We use our garden area throughout the day, everyday. We love to be outside exploring and enjoying our natural garden. We also enjoy regular trips to local parks, museums and the library where we take part in Bounce 'n' Rhyme sessions. Now the weather is a little colder please make sure your child has suitable outdoor clothing and named wellies.

World First Aid Day

In September we took part in World First Aid Day, we practised our first aid skills on our babies and our bandaging skills on each other!

Chunky Monkey

We send Chunky Monkey home with children, we love to read what you have been up to with Chunky monkey and your family and enjoy sharing your photos with the other children.

Holiday Club

Our new holiday club that we started earlier this year has been a great success. The children enjoy trips out in the community, to local parks and museums. Booking is now open for our October holiday club £20 per day(9am-3pm) for children aged 3-7 years additional hours can be added before or after the session.
