You can also ask to see your childâ€™s key worker or myself at any time. Just ask and an appointment can be arranged. Pre-School & Toddlers Are welcoming lots of new children so will be spending a lot of time introducing the children to new friends and learning all about the workshop areas. Staff will be getting to know new children and providing individual activities for existing children. If you want to know anything at all about your childâ€™s new room please ask a member of staff who will be happy to help and show you around. The library bus will be coming every 3 weeks on Tuesday afternoons.
Baby 2 Will be welcoming many new starters and taking part in activities based on the childrenâ€™s interests. We will be making the most of the last days of summer and digging and weeding in the garden. The role play area is currently a jungle with water, animals, books, foliage and even animal sounds. Baby 1 Will also be enjoying the garden and looking at the start of Autumn using animals, books, leaves and even visiting the forest school. We are also welcoming many new starters and we will all be getting to know each other, observing the new children and finding out about them and their interests. Please can we remind parents to remove their shoes before entering baby 1 and baby 2. Yours sincerely
