We hope that all our mummies have a fabulous Mother's Day and enjoy the gifts that your children have chosen for you. They worked really hard to wrap them up all by themselves.
The nursery will be closed for the Easter break between Monday 10th April and Friday 21st April. We hope you all have a relaxing time!

Early Years Pupil Premium
From April 2015, nurseries, schools, childminders and other childcare providers have been able to claim extra funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium to support children’s development, learning and care. This premium is paid to us for children who qualify under the Early Years Pupil Premium criteria.
We can use the extra funding in any way we choose to improve the quality of the early years education that we provide for your child. This could include, for example, additional training for our staff on early language, investing in partnership working with our colleagues in the area to further our expertise or supporting our staff in working on specialised areas such as speech and language.
For the academic year 2015/2016 we received £438.84 and have improved the quality of our provision by:
Staff attending training to enhance our outdoor provision
Purchasing new equipment to provide a more stimulating outside area
holding 3 sessions of yoga for a small group of children
