I hope you and your children are all enjoying the lead up to Christmas. The children have been singing Christmas songs and creating you some special crafts. We have all been creative in and around the nursery with our new Christmas displays – I don’t think there has been one day recently, where we haven’t gone home covered in glitter!! Christmas is such an exciting in the year for us all and as a nursery we have so much to look forward to. So, here are some dates for you:


Thursday 11th December – Christmas Jumper Day. Make the world better with a sweater.! Wear your favourite Christmas jumper to nursery and make a small donation for Save the Children.

Friday 12th December – Nativity (School leavers only) at 10.30am. Tickets now available.

Thursday 18th December – Christmas Hat Parade (For those who are not in the nativity this year) at 3.30pm. Please make a Christmas hat with your child and they can show off their creation in the Centre. You are welcome to come and watch them.

Term time only children –  Children finish nursery on the Fri 19th Dec and return on Monday 5th January 2015

Children who attend all year round – Children finish at 12 noon on Wednesday 24th Dec and return on Monday 5th January 2015


May I take this opportunity to say thank you for all your support throughout the year. And of course I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
