Dear Parents


Apologies that you haven’t received your November invoice, we are having a few problems with our new billing system, we are hoping to be able to send the bills next week.

 Children in Need

We will celebrate in the Nursery on Wednesday 15th November.  Children can wear something spotty.  Can they also bring in a bear/soft toy to care for?  We will also be making Pudsey Bear biscuits and collecting for Children in Need.



Helen Alderton has visited the Nursery to take the individual photographs.  Please look out for your child’s portrait pack which will be coming home.  Orders are to be returned by 22 November and please read the attached photographs for more details on ordering options.

Parent Consultations

Parent consultations for Daisy Room will commence this week.


We will be holding a Christmas Fayre meeting at 1.00 on Thursday 16th November.  This is a chance for parents to meet with staff to arrange times, to help to prepare for our Fayre and volunteer to help on the day.  If you would like to help with the preparations or on the day, but cannot make the meeting please let us know.

Arbury Carnival

Last year celebrated the 40th carnival and was a great success. Unfortunately a few committee members have resigned this year and the future of the carnival is uncertain at the moment. A drop-in morning is being held at the Arbury Community Centre on 18th November 2017 from 10am, to hopefully recruit new members so the carnival can continue for many years to come.  Please see the attached flyer for details if you would like to get involved.  If the morning is a success with lots of volunteers wanting to join the committee then the carnival will go ahead next year, if not then the 40th carnival will have been the last.
