April Newsletter Term 5
We hope you all enjoyed a lovely Easter break and didn’t over-do the chocolate!
At the end of last term we enjoyed a visit from Captain Fantastic. Due to their late arrival they have offered a return visit. Hopefully we will book it for the last day of term party which is Wednesday 18th July.
Sports Day is on Friday 25th May at 9.15am. This is also the last day of term 5 and there will be no nursery in the afternoon. We will begin our training this week and further details will follow nearer the time.
We are also looking into booking what seems to have become our annual theatre trip to the Churchill Theatre in Bromley. This year we will hopefully go and see ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ on Wednesday 20th June at 10.30am. The cost of this will be £11.50 each, adults and children. In the past this has proved very popular and a great first theatre trip for the children. Adults have to accompany children and stay for the duration as there is only 2 members of nursery staff that attend and you have to make your own way there and back. This is not a compulsory trip and ‘normal’ Wednesday nursery will still be in session if you don’t fancy. All children and siblings are welcome. Please Can you email Adele if you are interested in attending so we can get a rough idea of numbers and then more info will follow nearer the time.
We will also be making our annual pilgrimage to Godstone Farm in July. This is also a very popular trip and a great opportunity to join in the fun with your children and their friends and parents. Staff will be in attendance to participate and support but you are responsible for your own child(ren).
Please can I remind you that hopefully as the weather continues to improve please do apply sunscreen prior to nursery and if your child attends all day please send some in in their lunchbox for us to reapply at lunchtime. And don’t forget sun hats.
Please can you return your child’s growing homework by the end of this week.
Finally, I have some very sad news to share. Unfortunately, due to a family crisis we are saying goodbye to Linda. Linda has been at the nursery for 10 years and is a valuable and popular member of staff who will be greatly missed by the children, staff and parents. We wish Linda well over the tricky next few weeks as she concentrates on her family’s needs and I’m sure she will pop back and see us all when she can. If your child was keyworked by Linda we will be sorting out a new keyperson for your child.
