Newsletter Spring 2015

The Farningham Day Nursery Newsletter

We would like to warmly welcome all children and their families who have recently started at the nursery, including the siblings of existing children.

 Change of clothing/shoes

It would be much appreciated if ALL nursery children could bring with them a bag containing a change of named clothing on the days that they attend nursery as we now have limited supplies of spares.

We would also like to request that children have suitable indoor footwear (shoes, slippers or plimsolls etc) as heavy winter boots and wellingtons are cumbersome when children are playing on the floor.

 Parent Evening


Our next parent evening will be held at the nursery on Monday 23rd March. This is an ideal opportunity for you to discuss your child’s progress with their Key Person and to meet other parents. Practitioners will be available for consultations between 6.00pm and 8.00pm and we ask that you complete and return the slip at the bottom of the page; all consultations must be pre-booked before the 23rd March.


 Nursery Security


Please can parents/carers make sure that they close the security doors in the lobby and the front door when dropping off and collecting their children.We ask for your co-operation and understanding in this matter as we don’t want to lock the front door but will consider this if the doors continue to be left open.

The doors are there to ensure strangers do not gain unauthorised access to the nursery area and to prevent the children running out of the building into the busy car park when parents are not quite ready to leave.                      


Request for Sainbury’s tokens

Once again we are collecting Sainsbury’s Active Kids tokens which can be redeemed

for equipment for the nursery e.g. sports equipment, games etc. We would therefore be very grateful if you could place any tokens you may receive in the box provided in the lobby.

Toys from Home

It would be appreciated if children could not bring toys from home to the nursery, as this can cause children to become distressed and upset if their possessions become damaged or lost. Tigger staff would rather children brought an object connected with the letter of the week where each child has the opportunity to participate in discussion during group time.

 Opening Times

Our earliest opening time is 7:30am, we are unable to admit children before this time even though staff are in the building.
