December Newsletter




December is in full swing and the children are enjoying making lots of Christmassy surprises to bring home at the end of term. There is a post box at the front of the office where you can post your Christmas cards to your friends and lists of names are available in the office.  


Christmas week

16th-20th December – during our last week at nursery we would like to invite the children to wear Christmas jumpers as we will be counting down to Christmas by playing party games and having fun. Santa will be popping in to visit all the children during the last week of term – we hope Trev gets to meet him this year 😊


Fee increase:

We hope you will have all received a copy of our updated fee structure that will commence in January 2020. if you have not received a copy please ask Manda or Trev.


Children in Need:

Thank you for all your support this year we managed to raise £137.34 whilst having fun and eating cakes.


Super Stars Christmas concert:

This year the children in the Super Stars group will be holding their Christmas concert on Thursday 19th December at 2.00pm – Don’t worry if your child is not in the Super Stars group this year, they will get the opportunity to perform next year … or the year after 😊. We would like to invite the parents and carers of the children in the Super Stars group to come along and watch our Christmas concert. Doors will be open from 1.45pm on Thursday 19th December and we look forward to seeing you all.


Term dates:

We will be closing for all children on Friday 20th December at 3.00pm for our Christmas break and we reopen on Monday 6th January 2020 at 07.30am.

Air Ambulance Crisp packet collections

We will be continuing to collect the children’s crisp packets from lunch time and recycling them to raise funds for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance. We would love to receive your empty crisp packet donations from home too!!  For full details of the scheme please visit: This is such a good cause wotsits close to our hearts.

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, socks and shoes too!! Although we regularly encourage children to go to the toilet, as you know, accidents do sometimes happen!!  If you are given clothes from the nursery, please can they be washed and returned as soon as possible as we are now running out of clothes for the children at nursery.



Labelling belongings

We have a large number of children attending nursery during the week, please therefore, can we request that you label all of your child’s belongings including: lunch boxes, water bottles, changing bag and coats etc. This is so that the staff are able to find your children’s belongings whilst they are at nursery.


Mobile phones

In order to safeguard the children in our care we would like to remind you that the use of mobile phones is not permitted inside the nursery including the corridors.
