Nursery do not have homework

The children have all been given a ‘Parent Information’ file, which is updated every week.

This provides parents and carers with information on our main focus activities, and provides suggestions and ideas for ways you can support your child at home.


Please return the file every Thursday so that it can be updated and sent out every Friday.


Many thanks for your continued support,

Miss Knobbs J
