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 Family                  

Children will begin to understand that God made all the people in the world to be part of his family and that we are all part of it too. Children will know that God made us to know  and love him and we can show our love for him by helping each other. We will learn that God has given us gifts so we can show his love to others. We will know that God's greatest gift to us was to send his only son Jesus and we will respond to that gift by celebrating the birth of Jesus.
