Staff News
Claire will be leaving us on Friday 23rd February we are very sorry to see her go but we wish her well in her new career.
Emma will be back from Maternity Leave on Monday 5th February.
OFSTED REQUIREMENT
Could we please remind parents to sign their child/children in and out after each session.
Parents please when you enter and leave the nursery please make sure the door is closed behind you. This is a safeguarding issue and we do not want any children getting out of our nursery. We also ask that you do not open doors for other parents without asking a member of staff.
SPARE CLOTHES AND TRAYS
Please can we remind parents to check their child/children’s bags to empty and refill when needed. Could we also ask that you use a small bag for clothing as it is a small area and the big bags are taking up too much space. Please put your child’s name on their clothing. Please check your child’s tray to see if it needs emptying.
Stay and Play
We would like to invite parents to stay and play in your child’s room and see what fun they have while they are here. Please see your child’s key worker if you are interested and we will arrange a day and time.

Holidays
I know many of you will be taking holidays this year could you please inform staff in advance when your child won’t be attending nursery.
Pancake Day is on Tuesday 12th February and we will be having pancakes for pudding.
