Harvard Park Day Nursery LTD.

Notes from the management team: We would like to say a big thank you to our wonderful team for their hard work and consistency during the year. It has been a tricky one at times but we’ve made it through! We would also like to say a big thank you all of our parents and carers who have given us their continued support through 2019! It means a lot to us we would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. Here is to 2020! Message about bags:

HEALTH AND SAFTEY NOTICE - NO BUGGIES FOR FZ

Please do not leave food, medication or snacks in your child’s bags. We have noticed children eating from their bags. This is a no no - please remove it or do not put it in there!

Message for children and parents in FREEDOM ZONE: As our younger rooms are becoming more full, the lobby is filling up with buggies. Children in Freedom Zone should be walking or scooting to nursery rather than coming in in the buggy. In January we will be saying no more buggies for Freedom Zone. This gives you plenty of time to give up the buggy!

HEALTH AND SAFTEY NOTICE - No carrier bags on children’s pegs.

We have noticed a few children are bringing in carrier bags as their school bags. Please do not do this as children have free access to their pegs and carrier bags can cause suffocation. A small rucksack is perfect for a spare change of clothes and other little bits your child might need.

HEALTH AND SAFTEY NOTICE - Please bring in hats and gloves with your child’s name written inside on the label!

Please bring in a hat and glove set for your child everyday. It is getting very cold now — please put your child’s name on the label to prevent them going missing. We do not have spare gloves on site !

Welcome’s and Goodbye's We would like to welcome Advika, Vivaan and Sofia to our Harvard Park family. We would like to welcome Martina to our team and welcome back to Gurpreet who will be covering Nabila A’s sabbatical. We would like to say goodbye to Nivi, Erick and Daniel who left us at the end of November. We would also like to say a sad goodbye to Nabila from Baby Studio and to Katie who will both be leaving us at the end of this month. We would like to say thank you for all your hard work over your time with us and we wish you all the best for the future! Don’t forget us and keep in touch.

Topic: It’s time for Christmas!

Focus: Personal Social and Emotional development We will be doing lots of messy Christmas based activities so make sure you are checking your cubby holes for gifts and treats. We will also be doing lots of visits to Small Steps to give the children opportunities to socialise in different environments and with new faces. Just a reminder to please provide your child with the right sized shoes! Mission: Sing head, shoulders, knees and toes with your child at home to find out what they know! It is a great way to help them recognise their body parts as well as develop new language! Goodbye to Imma and Shanaya who will be moving up to Small Steps soon. Welcome to Vivaan and Sofia into our room.

Firstly a small reminder , Please bring your child in before 9:00am if you want them to have breakfast. Any time after this your child will be offered a piece of fruit. It disrupts our routine and often upsets the child when they are eating alone at the table. Second reminder is to please provide your child with the right sized shoes and to provide 3-4 outfit changes and spare clothes in their bags. Please take you water bottles home and don’t forget to sign in and out everyday! We will be doing lots of Christmas based activities such as festive language jars, making our own Christmas cards, Christmas decorations, looking at festive books and walks around the local area to see what we can find! We will also be having lots of free flow with Freedom Zone so we get to explore a new area and different activities! Mission: to sign your child in and out of our room everyday! Goodbye to Anjana who will be moving up to Freedom Zone. Welcome to Imma and Shanaya from Baby Studio.

Notes from Freedom Zone: Cool Cats Topic: It’s Christmas! December is the month of festivities, endless activities and lots of crafting! Over then next month you will be receiving lots of Christmas gifts and activities so please make sure you are checking tables at home time as well as cubby holes and ask your children if they have anything they need to take home with them. We will be learning the story of Christmas and why we celebrate it, decorating our Christmas tree, making snowmen, Santa's and lots more! We will also continue to take lots of trips around the local area looking at the lights and visiting the library to find new Christmas books. We will also have an elf workshop where children can develop their fine and gross motor skills through wrapping and writing cards! Mission: practise you mark making at home! Write a letter to santa to post in your local post box.

Reminders: Breakfast finishes @ 9:00am: Please bring your child in before 9:00am if you want them to have breakfast. Any time after this your child will be offered a piece of fruit as snack is conducted at 10:30am.
