Welcome back to the start of a new term. I hope you all enjoyed the Summer holidays.
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all new parents to our Eastbourne nursery.
Please feel free to share your lovely pictures with us on Tapestry of any days out you may of had, we would love to see them! It’s also a great way for your child to share their experiences with us and all of their friends here at Little Rockets.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
Like last year, I would again like to show my support to this charity by holding a cake stall. We would love for you and your child to help us with this by donating some cakes or perhaps making them for us to sell here throughout the day. We would be very grateful, and all money spent will be sent off to this wonderful charity.
On the day, children are welcome to come in their favourite dressing up costume or as they are (as I know not every child enjoys dressing up). We would please ask for a small donation of just 50p to put towards our final sum for this charity.
If this is not your child’s day at nursery please feel free to pop in with them so you can buy some of our cakes. This day will take place on Friday 27th September.
Rocky The Bear
For all of you that don’t know who Rocky the bear is, he will be coming home with each of you for the weekend. He has his own little bag and booklet. In this booklet we would love for you and your child to be able to share their experience of Rocky visiting with you by…
: Taking a photo and sticking it in
: Writing about his time with yourselves
: Children drawing a picture of their own
Anything you would like to add would be great thank you.
Once your children are all settled in, I will all be assigning them to their new Keyworkers. These will be up on the boards in the corridor over the next week. Please feel free to pop in and meet them once you know who your child has. Any questions please feel free to ask me.
Would of any of you be interested in spending a session with your child? Would you be happy to do an adult led activity such as cooking, crafts or perhaps a small story group? Please speak to Keely or Berrie.
Please can we ask that if your child will not be attending their session please could you let us know as early as you can by ringing or texting the nursery number which is 07516987199
Please note that usual fees are still to be paid whether your child is sick or you go on holiday.
Please continue to share all your lovely photos with us on Tapestry. It is really nice for us to see what you have all been doing. If you are having any problems logging into Tapestry please speak to Keely and we will try and sort it out for you. If you do make any changes to your email address please do let us know so that we can keep our records up to date.
As part of our ongoing involvement in the national food trust campaign we ask all families to bring along a healthy food to donate for your child’s snack time. This gives them the opportunity to share with others and try new foods. It has been really successful so far and we have enjoyed lots of varieties of fruit and vegetables and a great selection of dried snacks that you kindly donated. Thank you
Please can parents make sure their child comes in with a labelled water bottle each morning. We have a lot of children here and many of them do not know which is theirs and they sometimes have the same as another child, so you can appreciate it confuses them as well as us! We would like to be able to support your child in drinking from the right one. Sharpie pen should do it!
If your child is unwell please do not bring them to nursery to avoid spreading the illness to other children and staff. If your child does become unwell while at nursery we will contact you to pick them up as soon as possible so the illness does not spread. If your child has sickness or diarrhoea please do not return to nursery until they are 48 hours free from illness.
Spare clothes and toilet training
Please can we ask that you bring a bag containing spare clothes to nursery each day as the children do at times get messy and wet from the sensory activities they take part in. If your child is toilet training please remember to provide plenty of spare clothes, pants, knickers, socks and shoes too!! Although we regularly encourage children to go to the toilet as you know accidents do sometimes happen!!
Please can we request that you don’t send your child to nursery with peanut butter in their sandwiches as we have several children with nut allergies who attend the nursery. May we also remind you that your child’s packed lunch must contain an ice pack to meet with legal requirements of food safety.
