Firstly we would like to wish you all a big welcome back after the Easter break. Also a big welcome to all our new children that will be starting with us this term.

Last term we said goodbye to some of our older children as they graduated up to Ladybirds Nursery. We had a lovely term, finishing off with a Graduation Ceremony for those older children and also our Stay and Play session. Thank you to all our parents who came to this and supported us in Acorns.

We would also like to say a big thank you for your continued support in our fundraising. We would like to share with you that we have now raised over £300 in total which is now enough to get our new sandpit! Very exciting!

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 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 below from our Easter Stay and Play sessions and Graduation Ceremony from last term.

Below are some photo's of some of the activities the children got up to last term.
