Nursery update

Thank you for your nursery donations, a total of £121.50 was received. We spent £98 purchasing snack and playdough supplies.

Can I remind everyone that Jigsaw is a NUT FREE ZONE. Please do not bring any products that may contain nuts into the building.

Thank you to the parents who have been helping us paint the fence. If you can spare some time just ask at the office for the supplies. Any dry day.

We are working closely with Chryston High School who are making us a sign for our ECO garden at the entrance to the nursery. Some of the children will be planting bulbs and discussing what to grow there. Watch this space.

The children in the star room have been talking and learning about feelings, and due to their interest in the baby shark song have been learning about sharks.

We are having a visit next week from Danielle our hygienist from the Childsmile programme. She will meet with all the children and talk about how they can keep their teeth clean. I wonder if she knows anything about Sharks teeth?

The nursery will be closed on Friday 21st and Monday 24th September.

The school October week is the 15th to 19th October. If you require childcare during this week please collect a form from the office.

Thank you for your continued support.

Current Email

At the moment this is the current email you have hopefully received from us.  If you are not receiving emails please check your junk folder then let us know in the office as we may need to update your details.

 

Hi

A big welcome to our new families.

We have started to settle some new children and are pleased to report they have all been in good spirits and happy to attend. Some even crying when they leave. Its lovely to see the existing children helping to settle the new ones.

We wanted to remind everyone about bringing outdoor clothes as we are visiting the forest every week. The timetable for visits to the forest in on the forest room door and the notice board. Your keyworker will keep you right.

We are delighted that we managed to fund the additional fencing at the forest and hoped that some parents, friends, grans, grandpas, aunts or uncles would have a little time to help us paint the new slats.

We will provide the paint/brushes/tea and coffee.

Thank you for your continued support.

Can you help??

Dear parents and carers

As we start the new term the children are showing a great interest in playing characters.

We are hoping some families could help us build up our resources by handing in any figures or soft toys e.g Power Rangers, Star Wars, Turtles, Paw Patrol, Mr Tumble etc that your child no longer uses. This will encourage the children’s imaginative and cooperative skills as they work together to create scenarios for their characters. The characters also provide a familiar link to home which supports some of our children as they settle into nursery.

We are also looking for smaller versions of ‘fancy’ shoes for our role play area. If you have an older child who has grown out of their dress shoes we would very much appreciate them.

Thank you.
