Notices

Nursery in the warm weather

We are experiencing some very warm weather at the moment, please help us make sure your child is prepared for the sunshine.

  • Children should bring a water bottle to nursery
  • Sunscreen should be applied before nursery, please help your child to learn how to apply sunscreen so that they can reapply during the day. Do ensure that your child’s sunscreen is clearly labelled and in their bag.
  • Hats are a great way to help protect your child’s head and eyes from the sun, some hats have a tail on the back to protect the neck area too.
  • Sunglasses can also be worn (if they have them) please clearly label with your child’s name.

Appropriate Footwear

  • All children must wear socks and comfortable shoes or trainers – no open toe sandals or crocs please.
  • If you child’s comes without appropriate footwear, please do not be offended when we remind you to bring your child in comfortable shoes, trainers and socks.
  • If your child has any old shoes that they no longer wear, we would appreciate these in nursery as spares.
  • (please refer to your information pack at the start of September for more information)

Value Stars

Each day in the Nursery we will be choosing a boy and girl in the morning session and a boy and girl in the afternoon session who we believe to be 'Value Stars'. These are children who always make good choices and are role models to the other children in the Nursery. The children which are awarded 'Value Stars' demonstrate the core values at Fielding Primary School and Nursery. The children receive a small certificate and a sticker. Their picture is then placed on our Value Star board in the classroom for all the other children to see. Please watch out and listen for when your child brings home their 'Value Star' award.

Tissue plea

This is the time of year for sniffles and sneezes. We would be grateful if you are able to donate boxes of tissues to the Nursery. Thank you

Nursery Book Swap

Nursery Book Swap is starting the first week back of the Summer Term. Please read the letter attached for all the information you need to know.

Messy Play

In the Nursery we like to give the children opportunities to explore colour and texture. We do try to supply the the children with aprons for painting and remind them to 'roll up sleeves' when using messy materials. Sometime the children will get grubby when playing outside or they may get paint or other tactile materials on their clothes. We therefore recommend that parents do not send their children to nursery in clothes which they do not want marked or possibly stained . Sometimes good learning means getting messy. Thank you. 

Nursery Entry and Exit Routes

The entry and exit points for Nursery, outside of normal whole school pick and drop off times (8.30-9.00am and 3.15pm-3.45pm) ,are via the gates in Coombe Road and along the fenced path which leads into Nursery. For safeguarding reasons please do not use any other route to drop off or collect your children. Thank you.

Early pick up during a session.

If you wish to pick up your child early during Nursery session times we would be grateful if you could let us know in advance, or phone or email. By letting us know about early session collection, children can be ready and waiting for collected. This will mean that you will not be left waiting outside for too long, especially as Autumn turns to Winter. Also as you know the children have lunch between 11.30 and 12.00 and tea from 3.00 to 3.30pm, so it would be best to collect either before or after these times. Thank you for your help and co-operation during these transition times.

Winter Clothing

Can you please make sure that you carefully label each item of your child's clothing with their name and class. It will be much easier for us and cheaper for you, if we can return lost items quickly to the children if they are labelled. Thank you. 

Nursery children love our outdoor area and will need a good winter coat, hat, scalf and gloves to continue to make the most of their outdoor learning experience. Please remember to label all items of clothing. You can bring a spare set of wellies to leave at the Nursery in the coat trolley so that puddles can be explored on a rainy day.

Junk Modelling

We love junk modelling! We would be grateful if you could save any clean cartons,cardboard boxes, plastic bottles and any other wonderful waste materials for us to use in Nursery to make houses and lots of other inspirational creations. Please being your clean recyclable materials into Nursery and hand them to a member of the Nursery team. You may get some of these items back but they will be transformed into something amazing.No cardboard toilet tubes, egg boxes, milk containers or any containers which once contained nuts or dairy please. Thank you.

Parent/Carers Wow Notes

We would like you to share with us all the fantastic things that your child does outside of school. Wow notes are a simple and fun way for you to share with us some of the amazing things your children do. Just print of the document and then fill in any special things your child might do. Maybe they have just said something that took your breath away. Perhaps they have made something amazing or they have helped you cook a meal, rode their bike without stabilizers or tried something new. We will be able to use Wow Notes to inform our assessments.

Looking forward to seeing some Wow Notes from you soon.

Personal Toys

We have a wide range of toys and equipment at our nursery. Unless we specifically request otherwise your child should not bring any of their own toys to nursery. If they do bring toys with them, we accept no responsibility for any loss or damage to those toys.
