This month at Atworth…

We’d like to say a big WELCOME to Tristan who has joined us this month and will be working as part of our fantastic toddler team!

Please join us in making him feel as welcome as possible and be sure to say hello when you see him about!


Learning focus…

This month our learning focus is Understanding the World and our book of the month is “The Three Little Pigs”

You can pick up the learning together leaflets “Science all around” and “Young children and technology” from us here at nursery to help continue this learning focus at home.

Our hashtag this month is #snapsworld so don’t forget to look out for this on our social media sites!

Parents evening

Parents evening will be taking place on Wednesday 10th April here at Atworth from 6:00pm - 7:30pm. If you would like to book in a slot with your child’s key carer then please speak with them in the rooms to do so. Spaces are filling up fast so book soon to avoid disappointment.

There will be a parent / child contribution to planning form that we ask all parents to complete prior to attending this parents evening.


Pre-school spent lots of time outdoors this month, and were feeling particularly green fingered and made the most of the growing areas!!

They also created their very own obstacle course in the garden, and had so much fun running and climbing and putting their motor skills to the test on it!!

We will be closed on Friday 19th and Monday 22nd April, nursery will open again as normal on Tuesday 23rd.

Babies have had great fun this month exploring the garden and taking part in lots of fun outdoors activities! We were climbing and balancing and exploring ways we can move!



Toddlers spent loads of time out in the gardens this month and you can see what fun they had!!! We did lots of messy activities and enjoyed just being toddlers!!!

Session times

The nursery is open from 8:00am to 6:00pm so please can we remind all parents children must be dropped off and collected between the times of their session. Details of which can be found on parent zone or your invoice.


Should you need to see an up to date invoice, you can view this through the parent zone portal and request a bill be sent, which will then send a copy of your most up to date invoice to the registered bill payer email address.


It seems the weather can’t quite make up its mind at the moment and we are having hot and cold days! With this in mind can we please ask parents to provide appropriate clothing for their children, including hats and a named bottle of suncream for when the sun does appear!!

Changes within the nursery

We are aware that sometimes things can change within the nursery and you may not feel that you have the most up to date information. If you ever feel concerned or have ANY queries or questions no matter what, please feel free to pop to the office or drop us an email and we will be more than happy to discuss these with you at any time.
