Suitable Outdoor Clothes
As the rain and colder weather seems to have arrived, please ensure
your child is bringing suitable outdoor clothing to nursery. We recommend
water-proof coats and wellies and if possible a hat, scarf & gloves
also. Please also ensure your child has some rubber-soled slippers or
indoor shoes at nursery.
Bringing Toys to Nursery
We are getting a lot of toys brought in from home and often being left
here. We would prefer if children kept their toys at home so they do
not get lost. If you do allow your child to bring toys in, they will
be put into a basket for you to collect when you pick your child up.
Staff will take no responsibility for toys which then get lost.
We would like to thank those of you who brought something in for our
Harvest Festival basket. The children will shortly be taking these items
to those who need them more than us.
We hope that all of you had lovely holidays wherever you have been.
