Nursery: 3-4 Year Olds

Welcome to Nursery!

Welcome back after the half term holiday. The nights are drawing in and the weather is becoming more wintry. Please make sure your child is wrapped up nice and warm as the temperature drops. We are excited about noticing the changing of the seasons and will be doing some local are walks in the next few weeks. Please let us know if you can help out.

Messages

Just a quick reminder to our families.

  • Please bring your children on time.
  • After helping the children to self register, please bring them to their Key Worker corners where you can join them to share in the learning activities.
  • The more regularly your child attends, the more we can help support their development.
  • Remember to log in to your child’s Interactive Learning Diary.  These are made with lots of love and attention.  Your child would be so proud to share their learning experiences with you at home. We welcome you to put on your own photographs and learning experiences too.  Thank you for all of you who do this regularly already.

Packed Lunches

If you are providing a packed lunch for your child, please ensure it is a healthy, balanced and varied. Please see below some information on the range of healthy foods to provide and remember that NUTS are NOT ALLOWED, chocolate bars are not allowed, grapes need to be cut in half and there should only be one sugary snack. Please take the time to check the sugar content of yogurt drinks and snacks as it is very easy for your child to be consuming more than their daily intake of sugar without you realising. As a rule of thumb, foods that are unprocessed and fresh contain less sugar and artificial colours and flavours.
