The sun is on its way

Hope fully we will start to see an improvement in the weather over the next few weeks; so please can I remind parent’s that they will need to be bring a labelled sun hat. The nursery will provide Factor 50 sun cream for your child. If your child needs a particular brand, please supply  this clearly labelled with their name.

Our leaver’s party will be held on Thursday 17th July from 9.00 am until 11.30 am at Seesaw Nursery 1; there will be lots of fun including bouncy castle, face painting and ice creams. If this is your child’s normal session then they can be accompanied by a member of staff; however if it is not your child’s session they will need to be accompanied by an adult. Hope to see you all there!

Extra sessions

If you are considering booking more sessions in September, now is the time to do so. We are booking up fast and have limited spaces.

Universal and extended free entitlement.

If your child turns 3 before 31st March 2019; they will be entitled to claim up to 15/30 hours free per week (government funded). Please see Laura, if you require further information.

School Leavers

If you have received confirmation for your child’s school admission in September; please could you let us know.  It is this time of year that we have visits from the reception class teachers; and it is much easier to arrange if we know in advance.
