Child to Keyworker  

                                                                               Please ensure you take your child to your keyworker at the beginning of each session.  For the Butterfly room there will be signs above the children’s trays indicating which area you will find their keyworker.

Nursery shoes                                                                                                   It would be a great help if you could mark your children’s shoes with their name or initials and replace in their bags daily as many are getting misplaced or mixed up.  We have delible pens that you can use, which will make a permanent mark.


Daily diary online                                                                       The Caterpiller Room are moving to producing the daily diaries online like the baby room.  This is a more eco efficient way and provides an opportunity for feedback from working or busy parents who may not have the time when they drop off or collect their child/ren.


Thank you to all who donated to this on Friday, we raised £49.50

Parent’s meetings                                                         Baby and Caterpillar rooms will take place on Tuesday 28th and Zoe and Connor’s groups will be Wednesday 29th and Ashleigh will speak to parents individually.

Wooden Pallet                                                                                         Stephanie and Kate are looking for a wooden pallet to create something special in the Caterpillar Room.  If you can help please speak to them directly.

Dinosaur Topic

The Butterfly Room (3-5) have indicated dinosaurs as their chosen topic.  Therefore, we will be turning the nursery into a prehistoric area of discovery.

Caterpillar Room

  Please ensure that children have appropriate clothing and wellingtons for outdoor play as we have been spending a lot of time in the garden area and the grass is usually wet and muddy.

Stones/pebbles                                                    Ashleigh is devising a new sign in strategy for the children, therefore, we are asking for everyone to bring in a stone or pebble, approximately 10 x 5cms, which will enable us to paint on their names.

Early Years Expansion Survey                               We have been asked by the council to make you aware of a survey regarding the proposed expansion of funded hours.  This can be accessed at www.bit.ly/elc-survey
