Nursery Newsletter

Dear Parent

I am pleased to say that all our children have settled back into their nursery routine after the holidays and I would like to extend a warm welcome to all our new children and parents.


During the winter months, colds and infections can be more common.  Please keep your child at home if they are unwell.

If your child is going to be absent from nursery, please telephone the nursery before the session starts to inform staff.  In the event that no phone call has been received by 9.15 am or 12.45 pm an automated text message will be sent to your mobile asking you to call the nursery giving reasons for absence.  We appreciate your support with this as it helps to ensure the safety and well-being of all the children.


This month we will be focusing on Scotland and we will incorporate children’s ideas by mind mapping.  We will be talking about Robert Burns Day, tasting some “haggis, neeps and tatties” at the snack table, and listening to Scottish music.  In the art area we will be making tartan pictures looking at colours and patterns and investigating Scottish landmarks such as castles, Loch Ness and Scottish Parliament, we will then create our own images of these.  Finally we will be learning about rhyming words and continuing our number work.

Our Nursery rhymes of the month are Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Hickory Dickory Dock.  Perhaps you could practice them at home too.  Please find words attached.

Nursery Fund:

As you are aware we will ask for a donation of £2 per week or £24 in total for our nursery fund.  This allows us to enhance snack, purchase baking ingredients as well as have fun days and parties.  This is paid through Parentpay and were possible we would be very grateful if all parents could ensure they are up to date.

Thank you for your continued support.

Outdoor play:

Our children are outdoors every day – please ensure that they bring suitable warm and waterproof clothing for this.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

Pick up Times

To minimize disruption in the playroom at pick up time, it would be helpful if parents and carers could stick to the following times;

Full Day Children – Doors will open between 2.55-3.10pm

Afternoon Children – Doors will open between 3.30-3.40pm

Thank you for your continued support.
