Dear Parents


Ark Farm Visit

We will be having a visit from Ark Farm small animal encounter, the children will have the opportunity to meet a selection of small animals.  Such as Bantam Chickens, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, a Pygmy Hedgehog, a Leopard Tortoise, a Barn Owl, Sugar Gliders and at least one of our lovely Dogs.


Helen Alderton will be coming to the Nursery to take individual photos on the 1St November.  She will also be available to take photos with siblings on the day.  If you would like pictures with siblings please can you come to the office or email us.

Parent Consultations

Parent consultations will commence the week beginning 6 November.  There will be a sign up sheet with your Keyworker closer to the time.


Please ensure when making an online payment you use your child’s name as reference.   We have received a payment of £49.00 on 6/10/17 which we have been unable to allocate as the child’s name was not given.  If this payment was made by you please contact the office.

Cake Sale

We will be holding a cake sale on Wednesday 18th October to raise money towards our Ark Farm visit.  You should all have received your paper plates for your contributions.  Cakes will be for sale at the end of each session.

A reminder that we will be closed for Training on Friday 20th October.
