It has been awhile since the last newsblog which is largely due to the fact that I took a few weeks off Hope you have a cup of tea because this blog is packed!
A big welcome to Aysha Li, Ralphie Jay, Tomasz and Alex. We are also pleased to welcome Paulina who will be joining us one afternoon a week. Paulina’s first language is Polish and she is keen to help develop our resources to aid children wher English is an additional language.
I am pleased to announce that we have a new uniform supplier – Tesco. You will now be able to order your uniform easily on line via the following link: http://www.clothingattesco.com/ealing/discovery-nursery-and-preschool/invt/550927
Uniform will be available to order over the new few days.
We will be taking a trip to Aldenham Farm on Friday 24 June. Please look our for a letter regarding the trip in your child’s daily diary.
You will by now have seen our self registration ‘feet’ on the main door. Please do encourage your child to register themselves in when you drop them off. This exercise is great for name recognition as the children also learn which of their friends is also in nursery.
Part of our ethos is to support our children become happy, confident, independent thinkers. One of the ways we do this is through encouraging choice and enabling children to manage their own risk. A few months ago we started a self service snack bar where the children not only help prepare mid morning snack but independently choose when and what they are going to eat. We have seen such positive outcomes that we will now be extending this to breakfast. From Monday, the children will be able to choose between various options including cereals, yoghurt, fruit and toast. Under the supervision of an adult, they will be able to toast their bread, spread their own butter or jam etc I am excited for the children and look forward to updating you on the outcomes.
