February 2019


This Month at Grosvenor

This month we’ll be fine tuning our Maths skills with our learning focus Shapes, Space and Measure.

Our book of the month is a book we’re all familiar with, Goldilocks & The Three Bears, written by Robert Southey in 1837!


We want to say a big thank you to all parents who have made a conscious effort to bring smaller buggies/ fold away large buggies. It’s really important that we keep our office space as clear as possible for Health & Safety reasons.

Nursery Hours

The Nursery is open from 08:00 to 18:00. Unless you have a pre-arranged early drop off, we kindly ask that you do not ring the door bell before 08:00, as we will not be able to let you into the building until 08:00. Please let us know if you need to arrange a permeant or even one off early drop off!

Valentine’s Stay & Play

Come and join us on Thursday 14th February for a Valentines Stay & Play! We ask all parents to join us from 4:00pm onwards to come and feel the love with some Valentines themed fun!

Hello’s & Goodbye’s

We have many new staff to welcome to our team this month. We have Vega in our Toddler Room, Olivia in our Pre-School Room and Grace, who is our new Grosvenor Admin! Please make sure you say hello and make them feel welcome to the Grosvenor family! Also please remember to say a big goodbye to Kati whose last day will be Friday 8th February!

Chinese New Year

With Chinese New Year coming up this month (Tuesday 6th January) the children will be doing lots of fun activities inspired by this event including cooking, tasing and creating all things Chinese. You might even get some pig inspired creations as 2019 is the Year of the Pig!

Toddlers have been absolutely loving our parachute games in the garden…


As well as taking inspiration from our book of the month, taking turns to play the gingerbread man as their friends tried to catch them!



In the baby room we have been doing some very messy play with lots of shaving foam!
