Welcome to the April edition of our newsletter, which is full of exciting news and includes details of our forthcoming events.
We would like to welcome Toni to the team; Toni is our new lunchtime assistant working on the first
floor. George has decided to step down from the senior position to focus on her family and Jo has
stepped up as Senior within the Preschool room.
Holiday Club and Out of School Care
We still have some spaces available in our Before and After School Club. For details about the schools we serve, availability and session timing, please call at the office. We offer a Before and After School Club for Holy Trinity and St Mary’s.
Also, bookings are being taken for our next Holiday Club, which will run from Monday 30 th May until
Wednesday 1 st June. If you would like to reserve a place for your child, or would like more details,
please speak with Emma or Salma in the office.
Activities and Planning
This month we will learn about baby animals and spring. We will talk about which babies belong to each animal.
Spring is the perfect time for baby animals to be born! Many animals have babies in the spring since the warmer weather makes it is easier for them to find food to feed them. Warmer weather also makes it easier for small babies to survive.

Focus Country – England
On Monday 25th April we will discover English culture, traditions and cuisine. We will dress in the colours of the English flag, which are Red and White. Please would you, support your child’s learning by encouraging them to dress in the English colours on this day.
Over the next few weeks we will be trialing dishes from our new summer menu before finalising
it; if you have any feedback regarding the new dishes, we would love to hear from you.
Please be reminded that mobile phones should not be used whilst waiting to collect your child, and that you should arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the end of your nursery session, to allow sufficient time for collection and handover. Our regulator, Ofsted, regards the use of mobile phones as a child safeguarding issue and as such your help in this regard is very much appreciated.
