Parents are warmly invited to nursery events, which are held throughout the year.

In the Autumn Term these include a Harvest Festival,  Christmas Parties [parents accompany the babies and toddlers] and a Nativity Play and Carol Service.

Spring Term offers Spring Concerts and Easter Parties, and during the Summer Term we hold Sports Days, Garden Parties and a special Leaver’s Celebration Party.

Parents are invited to our Parent Liaison Meetings, occasional Information Evenings and to make an appointment to discuss their child’s welfare and progress at our Annual Parents Consultation Evenings.

We regularly welcome visitors into the nursery, who are often also our parents, to share their occupations, skills, talents and interests with the children and are very grateful for the valuable contribution they make to the life of the nursery school.

THANK YOU to all our Parents and Grandparents who came along to our First Aid evening.  If you would like to take part in one of our future sessions, please do speak to the Office and we can pop your name on the list!
