Newsletter Summer 2015

The Farningham Day Nursery Newsletter


As another summer finally arrives we find ourselves saying goodbye to the children who are going to school and other settings.We would like to wish them and their families’ good health and happiness for the future and hope that you achieve all you set out to do in the years to come. GOOD LUCK.

May we remind parents that we require 1 month’s written notice.

  Summer Outing

We hope everyone enjoyed our summer outing to “Colchester Zoo” this year. The time seemed to pass really quickly with plenty of activities and experiences for all of the children.

 A big thank you to everyone who took part making this day such a pleasant event, your support is much appreciated.

 Parent Evening

Our next parent evening will be held at the nursery on Thursday 23rd July.

As most parents will know this is a good opportunity to discuss your child’s progress, exchange information and forward plan with your child’s key person.

Practitioners will be available for consultations between 6.00pm and 8.00pm and we ask that you indicate a convenient time to ensure that the key person you wish to speak with is free.

 Tiggers Leaving Party

We are having a leaving party at the nursery on Tuesday 14th July from 3.30pm to 5.30pm for all Tigger children. Children will be given a party tea and entertained by “Marli” the magician.

Please email or return the reply slip attached.

 Sainbury’s tokens

Our thanks to all who kindly donated their Sainsbury’s vouchers to us. Our total amount reached over 4000 and we have used these to purchase some sensory equipment for the children.

 Sun Protection

Please could parents/ carers provide a sun hat and sun cream for their children to use at nursery. It is also advisable to have extra spare clothes in a bag as water play is a very popular activity at this time of year.

 Increasing Days

We are now in the process of finalising our numbers for September and have a few remaining places. Parents/carers who would like to increase the days that their children attend please speak to Gill or your child’s key person.

 Staff News

We are delighted to welcome Alice Clarke and Courtney Dyer- Cardy to the team. Both practitioners are level 3 qualified and have experience in nursery environments. Alice will be covering  maternity leave for Hayley in the “Roos”, whilst Courtney covers maternity leave for Amy in the “Tiggers”.
