Thank you to all who took part in our Facebook Poll to name our new edition.  Therefore, we would like to welcome Jasper, our new cockerel.  

 Contact details....please ensure you complete the contact list and sign personal plans with your child’s keyworker.  It is vital that we have up to date and accurate information in order to provide the best individual care and welfare for each child.

 

Outdoor clothing....we have new equipment in the garden including a water play system and real boats.  Please ensure your child has appropriate clothing and wellingtons in order to fully access and enjoy this equipment

 

This week’s bonus ball number was 26.  We have a few balls available, please let Wendy know if you would like to secure one of these.

Christmas Fayre....thanks to all who joined us for the Christmas Fayre on Saturday.  It was a great success and we managed to raise approximately £900.  This would not be possible if it were not for the amount of effort staff, parents, volunteers put into organising the event.  Also, a big thank you to our funders and individuals/organisations who made donations of either goods, vouchers, money or equipment.

Nativity..... is taking place tomorrow with performances at 10:30 am and 2:30 pm.  However, due to the amount of children we will have to split the performance into 2 sections as there will not be enough room in the hall to accommodate everyone at the one time.  Therefore, we would ask that parents/carers of the Butterflies wait in the cloakroom area until the Babies and Caterpillars have finished their section, approximately 15 minutes.  We will then have a short break to allow this audience to leave and the new audience to be seated.

Christmas Parties (Caterpillar and Butterfly Room).....are on Wednesday, key workers will confirm with children who do not have sessions on this day which party they should attend.  Santa will also be here, hopefully with presents for all!

Holidays.....The nursery will close at 4PM on Thursday 20th December and we will re-open on Friday 4th January 2019.  We wish everyone a very happy festive period and look forward to seeing you all back in the New Year.

Winner this week is number 19
