Dear Parents/Carers

Welcome to the December edition of our Newsletter, which is full of exciting news and includes details on our forthcoming events.

Partnership with Parents


All invoices for December 2022 have now been sent out. If you have not received your invoice, please contact the office. Please also be reminded that nursery fees are payable in advance. If you have any queries about this, please speak to Kirsty or Natalie in the office.

Weather Changes

Now the weather is getting colder, please would you ensure your child has appropriate outdoor clothing and footwear with them. Please also label all items with your child’s name: This includes coats, hats, scarves, gloves and wellies. Unfortunately, we cannot be held responsible for the loss of any items.

Government Funding – Important Dates

All those children who access the 15 and 30 hour grant funding, please be aware that funding runs until Friday 16th December. Therefore, from Monday 19th December 2022 until Tuesday 3rd January 2023, full fees apply.

Holiday Club

Bookings are now being taken for our Holiday Club, which will run from Monday 19th December until Friday 23rd December 2022. Children can attend our Club regardless of the school they attend; so if you have older children and would like further details, please call in to the office.

Out of School Care

We have spaces available in our Out of School Club, which runs daily during the school term from 7.30am until drop off and from pick up until 6pm. The schools we currently serve are Crompton Primary, Blackshaw Lane and St Joseph’s. Please call the office for further information.

Activities and Planning

Children’s interests and our partnership with parents, play a large part in our curriculum and the way we educate the children. If your child has a particular interest, please feel to speak to a member of staff who will be happy to take this information from you. We will in turn use this information to enhance your child’s learning and development.

Children in Need

We would like to say a massive thank you to all those who participated in our Children in need fundraiser event. We raised an amazing £140.36 for a great cause.

Focus Country

For December our Focus Country is Israel. On Monday 12th December we look forward to learning about this country’s culture, traditions and cuisine. To support colour recognition, please encourage your child to dress in Blue and White, the colours of the Israeli flag on this day.
