Dear Parents,

What a busy and fun first term of 2022 we have had already . Our monkey puzzle team is growing, with many new children and staff. We have welcomed Cat, Caitlin, Shannon C and Shannon Donnelly to the team. That’s a grand total of 4 Shannon’s in our nursery and afterschool!

A big Congratulations to Carly who has recently qualified and has successfully gained qualified employment with us. Well done for your hard work! Mark and Chris will be welcoming a new baby to their families in the summertime. Leeanne and I have been liaising with Local schools for school transitions in August! And have been having some visits from teachers from St. Francis Primary and Blackfriars Primary.
Please see the parent zone app for visit dates to your child’s school.

Dates for your diary

Shannon Duffy has been working towards her PDA in Childhood Practice and I am on my last term of my degree. We are planning some staff training to develop knowledge and upskill. This will result in two in-service days Tuesday 3rd May 2022 and Wednesday 12th October 2022. The nursery and afterschool will be closed on these dates.

The whole team have recently undergone updated toothbrush training.
The child smile programme was suspended due to Covid, and we are very happy to announce that this will be fully re-introduced in the nursery. The children will be their teeth daily at nursery.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank our families for partaking in the parents’
meetings via phone calls. Hopefully the next time this will be face-to-face meetings.


Nursery opening hours 7:30am-6:30pm / Afterschool closes 6:30pm / Holiday club 8:30am- 5:30pm.

Please remember to bring suitable clothing in for your child, with a bag with spare clothes. If your child is not attending nursery or afterschool for any reason, please call ahead to let us know.

Regular updates will be update via the parent zone app (iConnect) and Facebook. Thank you all for your ongoing support!
