We ask all parents and carers to cover their shoes with plastic over shoes or to take off their shoes at the door of the Poppies Room. This is to protect the young babies in the room and especially the ones who are not yet walking. We thank you for your cooperation in this.
Please do not park for longer than necessary in front of the Nursery as this will help with the continual flow of picking up and dropping off your children. It will also avoid parking in front of our neighbours’ drives which of course makes them very cross.
We ask that you close the front door firmly when you arrive or leave even if someone is waiting. This is to maintain security as you may be admitting a complete stranger. Please do not be offended therefore if someone closes the door and prevents you from entering. Our priority is keeping your children safe.
We will close at 12.00 p.m. on Friday December 23rd and reopen at 8.00 a.m. on Tuesday January 3rd 2017.
Father Christmas will be visiting us on Tuesday December 20th at 2.15 p.m. Please dress your children ready for a party as it will be party day as well! We ask parents to bring in a ready wrapped present for your child with their name on it. Please bring in small gifts, do not bring in large gifts as they are too difficult for us to handle.
We are greatly looking forward to celebrating Christmas with our children and parents. Here are the dates for your diaries:
Monday 31st October is a non-uniform day. Children can dress up as pumpkins or wear autumn-coloured clothes. We do not celebrate Hallowe’en because it offends many parents and carers and also because children can be scared of witches. We will hold our Autumn Celebration Assembly during the morning and each class will perform a song and a poem for their friends.
We do ask parents and carers not to open the front door for other parents and carers. This is for security reasons and to ensure that strangers are not let in inadvertently. Please do not be offended by parents and carers not opening the door to you. They may know you but not the person standing behind you, for example. Then please ensure that when you are leaving you close the door firmly behind you.
Please could you make sure that your children's clothes are labelled. It is very difficult for us to remember which items belong to each child, especially as children frequently have multiple items of everything!
Welcome back after our summer break. We are all rested and enthusiastic about our new term. It has been great welcoming everyone again and also getting to know our new children and their familiies.
