Severe Weather Conditions
As we enter into the Winter season the weather will no doubt change too. In the extreme weather conditions we make not be able to open the Nursery as normal and will in this case make every attempt to inform the parents via updating our Nursery website, which is http://www.abcnursery.org.uk/ or contacting the parents directly and updating the Tapestry link. Please dial the Nursery telephone number too which is 01277362211 to check if the Nursery is open on the day in the case of extreme weather conditions.
P.E lessons in pre-school
The PE lessons will recommence on 10th January and will then take place on Wednesday 18th Thursday 26th Friday 22nd of January. Please ensure your child has the PE KIT ready at the Nursery on these days.
Just a reminder that our medicine policy states that children with antibiotics prescription there is an exclusion of 48 hours from the prescribed date.
As the weather is still cold can parents bring in appropriate clothing for the children to be able to play outdoors.
