Update

26th May 2017

We are trying to complete our “Daily Mile” challenge by walking LOTS during the day. Rob and Alistair (Prime Four Ambassadors) explored the new landscaped area with us. We can’t wait to hunt for mini-beasts, have picnics, practice for sports day and investigate the plants and flowers! We have also been out and about looking for environmental print, shape, numbers and patterns in our local community. We have been taking lots of photos with our huddles and cameras and are making a floor-book showing what we have found.


Sun Cream

28th April 2017

As the weather gets hotter (although it IS SNOWING today!?) PLEASE remember to provide your child with sun cream for nursery. Please ensure that it is clearly labelled with your child’s name and the date that it was handed in to us. Please also ensure that you apply the sun cream to your child each morning BEFORE coming to nursery. Staff will then ensure that it is reapplied throughout the day as appropriate. Many thanks.

P1 MAGIC Graduation Party

This year we have 22 very grown up boys and girls who will be leaving us at the end of the Summer (or before) to start the next exciting part of their lives in P1! As a special treat, they have decided that they would like to plan a graduation party to celebrate. They have already booked a magician and are planning, organising, preparing and shopping for their special party. The party will take place during the evening of Tuesday 27th June from 6-7.30pm. Parents are invited to attend from 7pm to see your children receive their graduation certificate. Any boys and girls who do not usually attend nursery on a Tuesday, are more than welcome to come along to celebrate! Look out for your invitations which will be handed out soon!

Similar meetings will be held annually and twice yearly for our pre-school children. Please remember that you don’t have to wait until parent’s night, you can request a meeting any time. We have an open door policy and are happy to meet with you at your convenience. Look out for our stay and play days in May also (dates to be advised).
