Parent question of the month

How happy are you happy with the progress your child is making at nursery?

*Don’t forget you can e-mail your responses to or if you have any other suggestions we also love to hear them!!


Our Pre-school Graduation will take place on Monday the 23rd of July at 10.30am; it will last for approximately half an hour. Please can you drop your child to us at 9.15 so we can get them ready and then return at 10.20 to watch J As we are unsure at this time whether it will be inside or out each child is limited to 3 people being able to attend due to space limitations. Our pre-school leavers party will take place on Tuesday 23rd of July from 1.30-3.30 and this is for the children only – we will put details of our theme in next months newsletter 😊


Sun cream – Can you please ensure that during the hot weather you send you do the following so ensure your child is kept safe in the sun:

1.      Your child comes in with sun cream already applied so it has time to work into the skin.

2.     That children staying for full morning/afternoon sessions (5 hours) have sun cream left at Nursery so we can re-apply it as the day progresses

      Can you also ensure your child brings a sun hat with them to protect their head.


Shoes – Can we ask that you do not put your children in strappy sandals for nursery as although they look very pretty they are not very practical for running around and digging in the garden and we find that they can cause the children to fall over quite frequently. Thank you.
