A permission and payment sheet will be put up outside each room for you to complete if you wish your children to take part in these activities.
As always payment should be made online, over the phone or via the Early Days Nurseries App. When making any online payment please can you put your child’s name and the activity as a reference.
Just a little reminder to any parents of children leaving us soon, to ensure they download their child’s learning journal, or save any photos/videos they wish to keep.
The journals will be kept activated for a week or so to give you time to do this.
This can be done by clicking on the convert to pdf file underneath your child’s profile photo.
You can also select the gallery option which will give you a view of all photos then you can right click and save.
Please let us know if you needs any help with this.
Have a little look at what the children will be enjoying on the Early Days and OCH Menu next week.

140g caster sugar,

Butter a loaf tin and line the base and sides with parchment paper.
Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy then slowly add the eggs with a little flour. Fold in the remaining flour, baking powder and bananas then pour into the loaf tin.
Bake for around 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Cool in the tin for ten minutes then remove to a wire rack.

Serve with a glass of milk or a coffee for the grown ups!
Our Coastal Classroom has been up and running for a few weeks now with much success.
The children are absolutely loving their lessons and learning so many new skills.
This week however, we focused on something a little different; our very own Early Days beach clean up.
It’s no secret that our coastline is becoming increasing polluted with plastic waste causing worrying environmental statistics for the future.
As a nursery we know how important it is not only to teach our children how to learn and grow, but also how to protect their own futures and the planet we live on.
With this in mind, we will continue to incorporate our beach clean up into our lessons. We also ask that whenever you find yourself at the beach, you do the same.
Lets save our coastlines one piece of plastic at a time.
Just a little reminder that Maureen will be running her ‘Getting Ready for School’ workshop this Thursday 30th May.
This will take place in Old Coates House Nursery at 7:00pm.
If you haven’t already done so, please can you email your nursery to let them know if you will be attending.
Once again, the children at Early Days Nurseries pulled on their superhero costumes in aid of cash for kids.
We baked some lovely cakes and sold them to all our mummies and daddies, and a few grannies and grandads too!
After Maureen’s rounding up, we are so pleased to have raised £100 for another fantastic charity.
Thank you to everyone who helped!
