So your child has as much fun as possible and gains as much independence as possible, please remember ;

  • Dress your child in clothing and coats that they can manage themselves
  • Sensible footwear, no sandals, flip flops, crocs or open toed shoes
  • Trousers or shorts to be able to access roktagons and outdoor climbing
  • No expensive clothing or coats they will get dirty and children do get anxious
  • Wellingtons in winter or wet weather- you can leave labelled wellies at Nursery
  • Encourage your child to become independent in using the toilet, it boosts their confidence and self esteem and gives them independence in the Nursery

The Way, the Truth and the Life

 This term our topic will be

                  God's World                   

Children will begin to understand that God loves and cares for us all and to think about what this means. We will hear and learn about all the things which God has created for us. We will know that God has asked us to care for the world and we will think about the ways we can help to do this. We will learn how God made each one of us different and special and we will reflect on this.
