WELCOME TO NURSERY!
A Big Welcome to all our children, parents and carers to Nursery. We are looking forward to the year ahead! Our older children who joined us in the Spring and Summer Terms are doing a great job of welcoming our new starters and everyone is settling into the new term very well.
We welcome Miss Kidd who has joined Mrs Barker on our Nursery teaching team. MIss Barnes will be the Nursery teaching support assistant and this year Mrs Taylor resumes her Learning Mentor role and will be in Nursery on Friday afternoons.
Our topic focus for this first half term is "All About Me!"
We will be focusing our learning on stories and information about ourselves, our senses and the things that interest and excite us. We will be making and creating as always and developing our language and physical skills. In RE we will also be celebrating about how special and unique we are! We will of course be looking for signs of Autumn so please do send in any leaves or conker collections you have.
Could we ask that Parents remember to name all uniform, shoes, coats and bags and to make sure that there is a bag of spare clothes on your child's hook at all times.
We now have a lot of children staying every day for full days, taking advantage of the government funded 30 hours scheme or the self funded paid top-up sessions that are available. The cost of an additional afternoon session is £10 and ALL children staying for full days are required to pay £2 per day for the lunchtime supervision.
There are some extra afternoon places available so please do check at the office.
Stay and Play Sessions are available each week (starting Tuesday 25th Sept) for under 3s and their parents /carers /grandparents. We welcome all our little visitors on Tuesday mornings 9-10am and Wednesday afternoons 2.15-3.00pm. Please let your friends, family and neighbours know about us - our sessions are getting busier and it's a great way to meet other parents and let your child do all those messy activities!!
Please feel free to come and talk to us at the start and end of each day about anything that's on your mind - no question is too silly or awkward!
Please remember that it is your responsibility to renew your 30 hours voucher codes and give the information to the school office for when the funding checks are carried out.
Staying at Nursery for full days (30 hours funded or self funded) means that you agree to paying the £2 per day fee to cover lunchtime staffing and this should be paid a week in advance, with all payments kept up to date.
