Nursery Update

Dear Parents,

 

I hope you are well, I have just a few updates for you this week.

 

School leavers

Thank you to parents who have let me know what school your child will be attending.  If you are yet to do so, can I ask that you drop me an email and let me know.  We are keen to start writing up the children’s reports in the next month and start reaching out to schools so this would be much appreciated.

 

I have attached an information guide for parents from the Early Years team. The transition story focus for primary 1 this year is ‘The smeds and the Smoos’. We will be planning lots of fun activities around this story over the coming months.  All nurseries are being asked to use the same story so that when children head into primary 1, they all have a shared interest to focus on.

Sun Hats and Sun Cream

 

At the risk of jinxing this lovely weather can I ask you to bring in sun cream and a sun hat for your child to keep at nursery.  Please can you also add your child’s name to both their hat and cream.

 

Summer Events

 

We are optimistic that we will be able to hold our summer events this year.   We will obviously need to wait on guidance over the next couple of months but I thought it would be good to put some provisional dates in your diary.

Joanne and Chloe are on holiday this week therefore the staff in your child’s room will take observations of their key children and will provide you with feedback on your child’s online journal.

 

Wishing you all a lovely week.
