Welcome back to term 2, this term the children will be enjoying lots of messy play and firework fun before we start our festive activities. We have heard that Santa will be popping in to visit all the children in December – so remind them all to be good 😊
You should all have received a copy of our updated fee structure that will commence in January 2020.
Children in Need:
As in previous years we would like to support this charity and this year on Friday 15th November we would like to invite your child to come to nursery wearing their pyjamas in return for a donation to this amazing charity. We will also be holding a cake sale and the children will be making cakes to sell on Friday 15th November. We would love to have donations of cakes if there are any keen bakers out there – or shop brought to sell on the day. Trev has very kindly offered to taste test the goodies before selling them on to the families at Little Rockets. There appears to be no end to his selflessness! We hope you will all join in the fun and help us raise money for Children in Need.
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.
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.
Tempest photography will be coming to the nursery on Friday 22nd November to take individual photographs of the children. If your child does not normally attend on a Friday but you would like their photo taken please pop in between 9.30-11.00 am. These photos make fantastic Christmas gifts 😊.
Little Rockets has a Facebook page, if you haven’t already found us on Facebook and liked our page please do as we post regular updates and nursery news on there.
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: aakss.org.uk/crisppacketrecycling. This is such a good cause wotsits close to our hearts.
If you would like to purchase uniform for your little ones, then it is available to order from My Clothing at
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.
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.
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.
