Nursery Weekly Letter - 29/03/2019

Dear parents/carers,

I cannot believe there is only one more week until we break up for the Easter Holidays! It has been a short but very productive half term and the children in our Nursery continue to impress us with the lovely attitude they have to their learning. There are a few important things coming up –

Home learning

Our latest home learning project needs to be completed by Thursday next week in time for our Nursery Easter Bonnet Parade (see below). It is time to use your family’s creative skills to make an amazing, quirky, spring related Easter Bonnet – the staff have been set the challenge too!

Easter Bonnet Parade

Please join us for our Nursery Easter Bonnet Parade on Thursday 4th April at 2pm in the main downstairs hall, when your children will have the opportunity to show off their wonderful Home Learning Bonnet designs. Please come to the MAIN RECEPTION where somebody will meet you. If your child does not attend Nursery on a Thursday, they are welcome to come with you and join in the fun. You will have received a letter about this (your Home Learning letter) and a copy of this is on the outside notice board should you want to check it.

Nursery Garden

Next week we will be planting herbs in our garden to use in our mud kitchen, and we have new shrubs arriving to add to the trees we planted this week. Our Gardening helping hands are busy keeping control of the weeds and watering every day.

Spare clothes.

If you have borrowed any spare clothes from Nursery please can you make sure they are returned so we can use them for other children who need them. We are particularly short of girl’s pants (age 3-4) and girls shorts/joggers, so if you have any at home which your child has outgrown, we would be very grateful to take them off your hands!

Sickness

I am aware that there have been concerns about the level of cleanliness in our Nursery – I would like to reassure everybody that ALL our soap dispensers are checked daily by the team and refilled when running low. The team, as they do with any sickness outbreak, have been working hard disinfecting all equipment and ensuring they clean thoroughly in addition to the work of our school cleaners. I would also like to point out that there are still several children who are coming to Nursery when they are unwell, and I cannot stress enough the importance of keeping your child at home when they are unwell, and for AT LEAST 48 hours after the last bout of sickness. If we all work together to minimise the risk of infection from the inevitable bugs that pass amongst young children will reduced as far as it can be.

Thank you for your continued support. Please remember that we are always available at the beginning and end of the day if you have any questions or concerns, or you can make an appointment to see me…… and don’t forget we break up for Easter next Friday (5th April)

Have a lovely weekend,

Julie Simpson
