Nursery woodland visits

NURSERY ONLY

Dear Parent / Carer

As most of you already know the preschool children take part in regular forest visits to a local woodland area which up until now has been Eastwood Park.  This year staff have carried out a risk assessment and explored Huntly Park with a view to changing our venue.  The walk will be shorter but the area still provides an interesting and stimulating environment for us to explore.  Because of our generous staffing levels, and due to the current restrictions on contact with parents and carers, we will not require parent helpers. Obviously we will tweet about our adventures so you can see what we are up to.  Waterproofs and wellies will be provided but you are also free to supply your own if preferred.

Your child will go in a small group on a fortnightly basis on a Tuesday or Thursday morning.  We have looked at the different attendance patterns to ensure every child has the opportunity to take part.

Looking forward to our first visit being Tuesday 8th  September.

Nursery Drop Off

When you are dropping off your children please observe social distancing unless your child is upset.

Please give your child’s lunchbox etc to them to bring in by themselves and stay at the “holding area” (large climbing poles near entrance).

If you have to buzz at the nursery entrance please stay at the bottom of the steps when staff answer the door.

This will keep everybody safe and following guidelines.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Nursery Pre School Pupil Photos

You will by now know that your children will be invited into nursery in small groups to mark the end of their nursery journey.
It would be really helpful if you could email a photo of your child (if possible a head and shoulders shot?) to:  schoolmail@giffnock.e-renfrew.sch.uk
We are really looking forward to seeing you all again, however briefly, and celebrating your time at Giffnock Nursery.
Kind Regards
Giffnock Nursery Staff

Hopscotch Theatre – Nursery afternoon children

You may already be aware that Hopscotch Theatre is visiting the school during the morning of Friday 13th December.  We do not want any child to miss out on this event and therefore the nursery afternoon children have the opportunity to attend the pantomime at 9.15am as long as you accompany them and are responsible for them during the performance.  You may bring younger siblings but you are responsible for them also and if you need to leave for any reason you must take your nursery child with you.  Please report to the nursery by 9.05am to be in time for the performance and take your child home at the end.

To confirm, your child should attend the afternoon nursery session as normal.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to ask the nursery staff.
