Ladybugs Easter bonnet competition

Thank you so much to all of the Ladybug families who supported our Easter bonnet competition, your entries were truly amazing! We did have a winner, however all of the children will receive an Easter egg and certificate as in our opinion they were all superb.

Don’t forget tomorrow (Friday) is the last day at nursery as we will be starting our Easter holidays. This is also the final day for Mrs Sarah Wilson as she will be moving on to pastures new. We wish her all the best for the future.

Easter fun

The nursery children have made lots of Easter crafts including cards, baskets and Easter chocolate nests.

We also decorated Easter eggs and hid them in the garden. The children had great fun finding each other’s eggs in the garden and looking for the Easter bunny’s foot prints.


Exciting news! We are delighted to announce the arrival of baby Willow, a beautiful daughter for Mr and Mrs Cleobury.  Mum and baby are doing well and are looking forward to visiting everyone in nursery.

Spring sing a long

Don’t forget the nursery children will be taking part in the EYFS sing a long on Wednesday 3rd April at 9:15 to 9:45 and again at 2.15 to 2.45.  This is a ticketed event so please ensure that you have completed the reply slip on your letter in order to attend and handed it in to the nursery staff by Friday 29th April.

Goodbye for now!

It was Mrs Cleobury’s last day in nursery today as she is about to start her maternity leave. She will be really missed by the children and staff . We will keep you informed of an baby news. Good luck Mr and Mrs Cleobury and bump!

Road safety

The nursery children have been learning all about keeping safe this week including road safety. We have been encouraging the children to stop, look, listen and think.
