Graduation – Class of 2021

08th September 2021

WE really really enjoyed our final graduation party. What a ball we had! We asked for a bouncy castle and popcorn machine – and we got them! It was a really lovely reunion before starting school! Parents and staff gave the boys and girls a very well-deserved standing ovation when they left the nursery for the last time. It really did bring a tear to our eyes. Congratulations everyone!


What have the Wellie Gang been up to this time?

08th September 2021

We can’t believe that it is Autumn already! We have been as busy as usual. We have been completing the Hands Up Travel Survey, music making, national fitness day, national country music day, delicious bbqs, pizzas in the pizza oven, Recycling week, lots of planting, learning about the seasons, how to keep safe, creatures under the sea and exploring minibeasts and insects! We are like little sponges – never stop learning!

Since returning to nursery, we have been playing outside as much as possible.

We are really delighted to have received our Care Inspection report. We came out with flying colours and couldn’t have done any better! I am extremely proud of the staff and children who really impressed our Inspectors with their knowledge and skills. Thank you also to the parents who contributed to the Inspector’s consultation. All comments were also very positive. I will send out the finalised Report as soon as it is published.


Thank you from the bottom of our hearts

08th June 2021

Some of our children have already started to leave us and I have to say that all of the emails, messages and cards have really brought a tear to my eye. The very kind words mean such a huge amount as it proves that we have achieved what we set out to do. We genuinely only want the very best for all of our children and families. Also all of the extremely positive comments that we have received during the pandemic, have really meant a huge amount to us too.
