Nursery News

W/C 19th February 2018

Welcome back after the half term - we hope you enjoyed the break. All being well you should be reading this on the nursery page of the school website! We plan to develop this page over the next term to ensure we are giving you the information and news that keeps you up to date with what is happening in Nursery. You will see we have included our new monthly snack menu, shown below this news. These are all favourites which the children have chosen over the part terms. As you know we like to celebrate children's birthday's with a small cake, and therefore on birthdays a change to the snack menu will reflect this. We will keep you informed by writing it on the Nursery whiteboard - but we are sure the children will tell you too!

Last week we began to explore the festival of Chinese New Year and the children enjoyed a special Chinese snack. We will continue to learn more about this custom and help the children to celebrate it through music and dance. On Tuesday afternoon last week we went for a walk and found some beautiful snowdrops. We will continue to explore outside for signs of Spring. We are also aware that children can get very muddy as they play in the Nursery garden. We are in the process of ordering some more all-in-one suits which should help the children to stay cleaner. Alternatively, if you have an old shirt that can be worn over the top of outdoor clothes like an apron, we are happy to keep it here and put it in our laundry at regular intervals.

Snack money this term - £2 per week or £12 till the Easter holidays. Thank you.

 Thank you

 

 In our Nursery we strive to provide a vibrant, stimulating, secure and safe environment  where each child is given the opportunity to develop socially, emotionally, physically and educationally. 


                                 
   

  Children learn through play, by trying, by being challenged, being encouraged and supported, by rewarding and
  celebrating their every success.  Each child is treated as an equal individual, respected and valued.

 We want children to develop the confidence to explore and enquire, to try something new, to ask questions and to look for answers, and to apply their learning to find out even more.

 

Children are encouraged to respect and care not only for themselves, but for each other, for their nursery and their
environment, and for the wider community.

We work  to the principles of GIRFEC – Getting it Right for Every Child.
