Autumn 2016 Update

Dear Parents,

As we see the last of our pre-schoolers off to school, time for an update on what is happening at the nursery.

Important News: Calpol Policy

After taking advice on this matter we have decided to revise our policy regarding the administering of Calpol. We will administer only if other methods have not worked. However, we will call you to arrange immediate pick up of your child so that you may have them examined by a doctor. You will then be expected to keep your little one home for 24 hours. This serves as an infection control measure and is non-negotiable.

New Menu

Monday 12th September see the introduction of our new menu. This menu has been developed for us by nutritionist, Charlotte Sterling Reed, who you may have seen on a number of TV programs or in publications such as Mother and Baby Magazine talking about this subject. We are very pleased to be able to get her advice and am sure you will all be taking an interest in the menu.

Teddy Bear’s picnic

The Babies and Mobiles rooms will be hosting the annual Teddy Bear’s Picnic on Thursday 15th September from 4.00 pm; all parents are invited along to see your children having fun in the garden.

Gardening class

1st September saw the start of an exciting new chapter at Bridge Lane with the start of gardening classes for preschool. Not only will they be growing their own food in the future but will help turn our “feature wall” in the garden into a living wall. Watch this space!

New grass in the garden will be arriving in the very near future so the garden will be looking spick and span.

Tatty Bumpkin Yoga

5th September saw the return of Tatty Bumpkin Yoga classes with Preschool and Toddlers joining in a very enjoyable class.

Minisports  starts again from 6th September and Teddy Tennis starts next Thursday15th September

Air Conditioning is being fitted in all rooms and will be up and running by the end of the month.

No exit from side gate

Please do not use the side gate to exit. We have had occasions when parents have left the side gate open which poses a serious potential hazard to your children. We will settle children, it’s our job.

Staff changes this month see Sam becoming new Room Leader in Toddlers, as Geanina left for a job closer to home, and Claire is now in pre-school as Deputy Room Leader being mentored by Gabi and Nadea the Nursery Teachers and Myriam who is hugely experienced.

Contact emails

Please drop us an email with the title of contact email so that we can compile an email list for everyone so that we may speed up our lines of communication.
