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!

KINDERGARTEN PARENTS CURRICULUM INFORMATION EVENING
Many of our Parents express an interest in the ways in which we teach Phonics and Mathematics at this age, particularly in relation to preparation for school. We therefore hope to host (Covid-permitting) an Information Evening for our Kindergarten Parents, to enable them to better understand the processes and to give them ideas of how they can help at home.
TIME, VENUE AND TIME T.B.C.
These are dependent on the pandemic – we will let you know as soon as we have firm plans in place.

Baby Nursery Summer Party
Following government guidance, we are unable to hold events with public groups until the lifting of restrictions on 19 July. However, we warmly invite Baby nursery families to Hampton Bishop Village Hall (tentatively!) on Monday 26 July at 4pm. Fingers crossed this event can go ahead!
In the Spring and Summer term, we will hold Parents Evenings for those with children in Baby, Tiny Tots and Toddler Nurseries. Parents have the option for these to be held either ‘virtually’ via Zoom, or in our garden marque. Please do keep an eye on your child’s iConnect for your invitation.
Kindergarten Information Evening
We’re holding an Information Evening for our Toddler families, to help them prepare for their final Pre-School year at Nursery, via Zoom at 6pm on 7 July.
We are incredibly sad to say that we cannot find a suitable solution for our Leavers Ceremony, however, we shall mark the occasion with a Video for you all to enjoy, and hope you can understand our predicament.
Due to the Pandemic, we are following the government’s guidance, and we therefore are currently ‘playing by ear’ our usual events. We will let you know as soon as we have firm plans in place for these, but worry not, we’ll certainly mark them with your children even if we cannot all come together. Many thanks for your understanding!
