Dear Parents/Carers
Welcome to the May edition of our Newsletter, which is full of exciting and informative news and includes details on forthcoming events.

Partnership with Parents

Holiday Club

Bookings are now being taken for our Holiday Club, which will run from Monday 30th May until Wednesday 1st June for school age children. Children can attend our Club regardless of the school they attend; so if you have older children and would like further details, please call the office.

Please note that Nursery will be closed on the following Bank Holidays: Monday 2nd May, Thursday 2nd & Friday 3rd June 2022

Weather Changes

With the weather becoming warmer, please would you provide a sun hat, clearly labelled with your child’s name. Nursery will provide sun cream, which is Asda’s own, factor 50. Should you wish to use a different brand, please provide an unopened bottle, labelled with your child’s name to keep here at nursery. We ask that you apply sun cream, when necessary, prior to your child attending their nursery session. Please note we are obligated by our regulator to ensure all children wear sun protection cream whilst playing outdoors, so your understanding and help with this important issue is very much appreciated.

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 Blackshaw Lane, Crompton Primary and St Joseph’s. Please call the office for further information.

Free Entitlement

Please note that the grant will not run from Monday 30th May to Friday 3rd June and that full fees will therefore apply during this time. The term will continue on Monday 6th June.

Dates for Your Diary

Festival of Eid Al-Fitr

We will celebrate the festival of Eid, on Tuesday 3rd May, and be looking at the breaking of the fast at the end of Ramadan.

Focus Country

For May our focus country is India. Please encourage your child to dress in ORANGE, WHITE and GREEN, the colours of the Indian flag on Wednesday 11th May. On this day we will spend time learning about Indian culture and traditions.

Easter Bonnet Parade

Thank you to all who took part in our annual Easter Bonnet competition, which was again a great success. Well done to all our participants.

Parents Evenings

Parents Evenings will be held throughout May; face to face appointments will be available to discuss your child’s progress and will be limited to around 5 minutes per family. Dates and times for each area are as follows:

  • Dinkies & Tweenies – Tuesday 24th May, 6 to 8.00pm
  • Main House – Tuesday 17th May, 6 to 8.00pm
  • Preschool – Wednesday 18th May, 6 to 8.00pm

Please see your child’s key person to book an appointment.

Staff News

Staff Training

Staff have recently attended refresher speech & language training. We completed different activities on how to support all children’s early language skills across the nursery to enable continuous progression.

Staff Rewards

Staff Member of the Month

In April Casey was awarded ‘Staff Member of the Month’ for settling into the nursery well and for engaging the children in fantastic creative activities. Please continue to make your nominations by using the nomination slips, located at the front entrance. Alternatively, you can ask your child’s key person for one.

Owl Competition

The April winners of our Owl Competition are Dinkies & Tweenies for their settling in procedures as the children transition rooms. Well done for achieving the most WOW moments!

Elisha was awarded The Golden Owl for supporting children well and keeping their learning journeys to a high standard.
