Merry Christmas…

And Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas everyone! We’re back with our December newsletter to let you know about what’s been going on around the nursery.

We’ve had a very busy few months on the run up to Christmas. There have been some lovely festive activities going on across the nursery, from Christmas tree decorating to mince pie making.

More recently we have been hosting our Christmas parties, complete with a visit from a very special guest, all the way from the North Pole! In addition, Pre-School have had their annual nativity, this year giving us their best performance of ‘Ralph the Reindeer’.

A Few Reminders….

Christmas Closure

The nursery will be closed from Tuesday 25th December and will re-open on Wednesday 2nd January, resuming our normal hours 8.00 - 18.00.

Nursery Hours

Please can we remind parents that our full day nursery sessions run from 08.00 - 18.00. Unless you have a pre-arranged early drop off, we kindly ask that you do not drop off before 08.00. Alternatively can we remind parents that unless you have a pre-arranged late pick up please ensure you are arriving in enough time to collect your child and receive a hand over by a staff member. Late charges do apply for anyone picked up after 18.00.

Children’s Clothes

Please make sure your children’s clothes, coats, hats, wellies etc. are named.
