Colleges Mail – 14/10/2019

Dear Parents/Carers

Here is our ‘This Week at Colleges We Are’ for your information.

Please remember that this Friday is a Training day and both the Nursery and Daisy Room will be closed.


We are still getting familiar with all the activity areas in the nursery and outside.

Daisy Room

This week we will be exploring conkers and creating our own special conker artwork.


Can you dress your child appropriately for the weather and consider the heavy rain we have been experiencing.  Wellies are perfect for outside but your child will need a change of shoes to wear indoors.  Children need several changes of clothes including socks and underwear.  Please talk to your keyworker if you are having difficulty in providing.

Cake Sale

We will be holding a cake sale on Wednesday to raise money towards resources for the Nursery and Daisy Room.  You should have all received a paper plate for your contributions and would be very grateful for your donations.

Ark Farm

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 chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, a pygmy hedgehog, a leopard tortoise, an owl, sugar gliders and at least one lovely dog.


Helen Alderton will be coming to take individual photographs on 30 October.  She will also be able 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 as these will be scheduled separately before your child’s session.

School Admissions

Have you applied for your school place for September 2020?  Applications must be made by 15 January.  For further information please visit

If you have any questions please contact the office and we will be happy to help.
