I hope this newsletter finds everyone well. Can you believe it’s October…where did September go?!?

Trussell Trust Food Bank
A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who donated. We have received an enormous amount of food for this worthy charity. I know they will be extremely grateful.
There are times in the day when the office is empty…if you ring and unfortunately, we do not answer, please DO leave a message on the answer phone. A member of staff will pick up the message and get back to you ASAP if we need to call you back.
Drop offs and pick-ups
We operate strict staff ratios throughout the day. Please ensure you collect your child by your pick-up time. If you are running late or you need to extend your session, please contact the office. Also, if you are not going to be at Nursery or you are going to be late in (e.g. due to an appointment), please let us know as early as you can so we do not worry about where you are.
Reminders: our doors open at 7.45am and we close at 6pm. Please sign in and out on your room register.

There have been a couple of incidents in the last couple of weeks, where drivers have been forced to reverse out onto the main road. This is a huge risk to all passengers in the car. Please give way to vehicles coming into the car park, because we do not want to risk anyone’s safety. I am also in contact with Winterbourne Primary School about this matter.

If you have any questions about the key messages above, please do not hesitate to speak to your Key Person / room staff, or swing by the office. Please also speak to your room staff immediately if you have any questions or queries about your child or if you have suggestions for the room. Parent and Nursery staff relationships are vital to your child’s development and we want to use the information you pass on to enhance our room provisions. Tapestry has been full of exciting news from home…I know the staff, and myself, love to read these observations…thank you for adding If you are unsure how to add observations from home, please ask.
