We had a great Saturday afternoon at our graduation party. It was so very lovely to welcome all of the boys and girls back to nursery for one last shin dig. Great fun was had by all. 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!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts

24th July 2020

HUGE thanks for ALL of the really lovely cards and gifts that we have received as children have been leaving. This is extremely kind, generous and thoughtful and means a huge amount to all staff. 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. HUGE thanks also to Mabel (Kayleigh’s lovely granny) who has been knitting us a range of nursery rhyme characters. We totally LOVE these Mabel. Thanks sooooo much! What will we be learning and thinking about over the next few weeks?
