Our Topic

Our topic this month is Summer Holidays. If anybody is going on holiday this summer please send us a postcard or bring in your photographs.

Special Events

This month the Olympic Games are being held in Rio. To celebrate this we will be taking part in various sporting activities.

The week commencing 15th August will be our official Olympic Week. We encourage all children as well as staff members to attend nursery in their sport wear ready to take part in the events.

Each room will be identified as a different colour from the Olympic rings including staff members who will be the red team.

Donations

We would like to thank all the parents who have donated numerous items of clothing and toys over the past few weeks.

Session Swaps

Following our session swap trial, we have decided that we are going to extend this to be a continuous provision subject to some additional terms and conditions. Copies of the new terms and conditions have been emailed out, please could you sign and return these to the office at your earliest convenience.

Term Dates

For children who attend nursery during term time only we have now broken up for the summer holidays. The Autumn Term starts back Tuesday 6th September as Monday 5th September is an INSET day.

Monthly Invoice Calculations

We have recently sent out new average monthly invoice calculations for the academic year September 2016 to August 2017. Please could we ask that all parents take the time to look through the calculation to ensure the correct sessions are included as we have a number of different rota patterns and term dates across the nursery. Please could we also remind parents that fees are payable in advance by the first of each month.
