Yellow Home/Nursery books

The yellow home/nursery books are a great link for the children and their key persons between home and nursery life. We appreciate that everyone has very busy lives however a short message once a week would be very much appreciated by the staff. Observing the children and key persons sharing the messages and then writing one to you is great to see.

Duckling Wall

Please come into the garden and see our wonderful painting on the nursery wall (pictured above). It really is truly amazing with a fabulous warm Duckling glow incorporating all 4 groups the Stars, Moons, Suns and Rainbows. Annabel’s mummy is the great artist and has spent many hours in the sun, wind and rain creating this super mural. We would like to say a huge huge thank you to her.

Parking

Sadly, once again we have to remind all parents about parking in the surrounding area at both drop off and collection time. It has been reported that driveways and dropped kerbs are both regularly being blocked. Please can you be mindful and considerate to the local residents and families walking to school.

Reminder

Please remember that the children’s sweatshirts, coats and shoes need to be named. Also as the colder weather approaches hats, gloves and scarves will also need names on them. This is a really big help to staff when we are trying to help the children get ready for home time.
