When children are unwell.
In the Nursery we do all that we can to stop any illness affecting not only the children but also members of our team. Daily disinfecting of toilets and floors as well as antibacterial spraying of doors, handles and the use other cleaning agents are used to prevent germs and bugs finding a home in our Nursery.
We would be grateful if when your child vomits or has a dose of diarrhea, please keep them at home for 48 hrs to make sure that the infection has passed. If you bring your child into Nursery when they are ill it may pass to other children or adults. We understand that sometimes it is hard to take time off to look after your child but if they are ill they need to be at home.
Thank you for your support in this matter.

Nursery Holiday Club
We will provide holiday childcare sessions to compliment the school term:
You can make holiday session bookings via Laser and the fees will be added to your Laser cashbook, these must be paid before your child attends. Please be careful when selecting your sessions, as once sessions are booked and confirmed we are unable to refund, regardless of whether your child attends.
Keeping Children Safe
At Fielding Nursery we take the safety of and safeguarding the children as our top priority. We therefore would like to remind parents that once you have collected and signed your child out of the Nursery, can you please exit the Nursery Outdoor Learning Area as soon as you can. Please do not allow your child/ren to access any of the Nursery equipment once they are in your care. Please remember to close the gates to our Outdoor Learning Area as you enter and leave. Thank you
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.
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.
This week in the Nursery we will be competing on our topic of 'How can we help Father Christmas deliver the presents?'
We will be thinking about : Who does the postman/woman deliver presents to? Is it winter every where in the world at Christmas? and When do people give gifts to one another?
We will be look at a variety of Christmas themed stories and poems and also looking at some traditional Christmas songs.
In Maths we will be playing numbers games, focusing on turn taking, recognising and counting numbers.
Next week will be the final week in Nursery before we break for the Christmas Holidays. We wish you and your family a happy and peaceful break and look forward to welcoming you back on Tuesday 8th January.
Nursery closed for Christmas Holidays. No Holiday Club. Re-opens 8th Jan 2019, 7.30am.
