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

                         The Church                    

Children will begin to understand that we call the Church the family of God and we all belong to his family. We will learn that the church building is a holy place where we can all pray and are welcome. We will learn that Jesus is present in a special way in  the tabernacle and that Sunday is a special day for us. We will  know that lots of people look after the church for us and we are thankful for that
