Our Learning focus for this month is ‘Outdoors’ and we will be spending lots of time out and about so can we please ask you to provide weather appropriate clothing for your little one!

Our book of the month is ‘The Gingerbread Man’ and our focus leaflet is ‘Going out to play and learn’ which can be picked up here at nursery.

School applications

It may feel like its still an age away but don’t forget if your little one is due to start school in September 2019 then you MUST apply for a school space ASAP. The closing date for Primary School applications is January 19th 2019.

If you do need any help or advice then feel free to pop into the office for a chat, alternatively you can find lots of information on the councils website


There is lots of information on here so do have a look!

Sharing library and home bags

In the hallway by the Curiosity Corner you can find our Sharing Library and Home Busy Bags. These are resources for you to take home and use with your little ones.

If you do wish to do so please can we ask that you sign them out of the nursery in the books provided and sign them back in when you bring them back.


Parent Zone

Don’t forget you can access your little ones learning journal online via the Parent Zone portal at https://www.parentzone.me or you can download the APP directly to your phone.

This is where your child’s observations and assessments are securely uploaded for you to view and comment on, you can also make observations of your own! If you are unaware of this or have any queries, or need your log in details please just pop into the office!
