Firstly we would like to wish you all a warm welcome back after the lovely Christmas break and to wish you all a Happy New Year. 

Last term we said goodbye to some of our children as they graduated up to Ladybirds Nursery. We had a lovely term, finished off with lots of lovely activities including seeing Father Christmas, a Graduation Ceremony and also our Stay and Play session.

We would  now like to give a warm welcome to all of our new children and families who will be starting with us in Acorns this term. 

We look forward to another fun filled term, where we will continue to do our weekly activities including; baking, library visits, wellie walks, dance activities, songs and rhymes and lots of free play. We will also be holding a Parent Day as well as an Easter 'Stay and Play' session.  Dates for these are on 'Dates for Diaries' below.

  We will keep you regularly updated with any dates for your diaries and photos of your children. If any of you wish to talk to us regarding your child/ren's learning, please do come in and talk to us whenever you like. We also hold regular parent days which will keep you updated on your child/ren's progress.


Please check out some of our amazing photo's from last term, including some from our Christmas Stay and Play sessions.

Below are some photo's of some of the activities and games our children have been doing so far this term. Term 3. Our new children are settling in beautifully and we continue to look forward to a fun filled term.
