We’ve had lots of excitement in the nursery this week as the decorations, trees and festive preparations got under way. The children are all working hard on the actions for our performances in the four zones which will be shared on Google Classroom on Friday 11th Dec.
Our Learning Links will be available to read today on Google Classroom. Next Friday you’ll not only get to watch your child’s performance on Google Classroom but you’ll be able to share a virtual visit from a Christmas VIP (he wears a red suit!) with your child.
You can apply for a P1 school catchment place for your child if you currently live within East Renfrewshire Council or will be living within the authority by the start of the new session in August 2021. Online applications should be made from 1 December 2020 until 22 January 2021. Please click on the link for more information and to apply: https://www.eastrenfrewshire.gov.uk/apply-for-p1. Applications to defer your child’s place will be available towards the end of 2020.
When bringing your child’s lunch we would like to remind you that children under five should have grapes and cherry tomatoes quartered before eating. If bringing these at lunch time please ensure that they have been prepared for your child to eat.
We have been asked by our PTA for children to ‘Wear Something Festive’ on Friday 11th Dec. Please the see attached flyer for further information regarding donating to Glasgow South East Food Bank on this day if you can. Also attached is information on the PTA Winter Wonderland Online Fayre this weekend.
During next week children will be taking their Special Book home to share. Please feel free to add any artwork, photos or items that your child/you would like to share to show their learning journey. We would encourage you to complete the comment sheet in the Special Book. We ask that Special Books are returned during w/b 14th Dec to ensure that staff can quarantine these for 72hours before using again.
This year, to help with Covid safety, we ask that your child doesn’t bring Christmas Cards to nursery for staff to give out to other children. Thank you for your understanding with this.
Please find attached information about ‘Best Start Grant’ and ‘Scottish Child Payment’- benefits which will provide eligible families with £40 every week for each child under 6.

We would like to remind you that nursery will not close early on Friday 18th Dec and that children can attend for their normal sessions between 8am-6pm or 9am-3pm. Should you wish to collect your child at the same time as collecting a child from school, please just let us know at drop off time.
Have a lovely weekend everyone, keep safe and well.
