Staff Developments

Firstly massive congratulations to Becki on the birth of Layla. Mother and daughter are both doing really well, we all had a little cuddle the other day. Becki will be back with us in the New Year. By now most of you will be familiar with Helen who is acting up as head of unit for the coming months, she has a wealth of experiences with Early Years and is covering for Becki in her absence.

At present Ruth is taking a break from her duties in pre-school and we have asked Charlotte to take up that role until her return. Charlotte is level 2 qualified now and has almost completed her level 3, she has been with us in a training capacity for almost 2 years so it is a natural progression for her.


The final room on the toddler floor will hopefully be redecorated over the next month and I hope you are all happy with how the unit is now working.

Transition to School

If your child is leaving to attend school in September, please let us know which school and the date they will be leaving nursery. This helps to ensure the correct transition documents reach the relevant schools.

Nursery Outing: Saturday 07.09.13

We have decided to do another whole nursery outing, this time to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park near Doncaster. We will send out more details nearer the time to gauge numbers for coaches etc.

Parents Evening: Thursday 04.07.13, 7-9 pm

As usual it will be an informal cheese and wine evening, giving you all the opportunity to chat with staff and key workers and become acquainted with practitioners from other units.

  • Sun Hats: Please would you be able to bring in named sun hats and sun creams for the lovely summer weather!!!
  • Security: Please would you ensure you do not let anyone into the building either in the morning or evening. If someone is at the door as you are leaving, please close it behind you and ask them to ring the bell. This may seem rude but the safety of your children is paramount.
  • Parking: Occasionally at busy times the car park may be full, please park at the front of the nursery and not at the side. It is resident parking only at the side and some parents have been issued with tickets in the past, sorry!!
