Den Building

We are planning a den building day on Monday 2nd July. Bring a favourite teddy or toy and some sticks to make a house / den or shelter. Remember to dress for the weather .

Here are some photos of a very successful day with lots of new huts, dens, rafts and houses were built for favourite toys and teddies. Thanks again to our parents who helped organise the day and help teach the children how to build

Eid celebration day

rsday 14th June we will be celebrating Eid with the children. In the morning we are honoured to have a previous mum of the group coming into nursery to work with the children with things like making Eid cards, painting henna patterns and preparing a traditional savoury snack.

In the afternoon we are inviting all parents and carers to come and join us in an Eid party. It would be lovely to see you! Just let the office know if you are coming.

We also have an activity sheet for parents to take home and make an Eid Moon and Star mobile with the children. Activity sheets linked to other topics we have undertaken recently are also still available if you haven’t managed to pick one up yet. All we ask is a small contribution towards photocopying costs

Here are some Eid memories of a great day

Tapestry Early years Learning Log

Hopefully we are well on the way to establishing TAPESTRY as our new software programme to store and update child profiles. These observations and records are available for you to access so you can see photographs and statements stored about your child`s time at nursery. You are also able to contribute to their folders by sending photographs and text outlining activities they have done with you.

TAPESTRY seems to be quite user friendly and it has been really encouraging to see so many parents viewing and contributing to their child`s learning log.

If any parent wants to be re-sent log in details please email or telephone the  nursery and we will be happy to help. There is a 24 hour deadline to complete log in details one TAPESTRY has sent the email
