Summer Term Newsletter

Welcome to the Summer Term at The Psalter Lane Nursery, hopefully it is going to be sunny one where we can be outside exploring the garden, so don’t forget your sun cream and hats.
It is a busy term with children getting ready for school. Hopefully you have received confirmation of your child’s school places and we would be very grateful if you could let your child’s key person know which school they will be attending in September 2018. We will be completing a Transition Form for your child which will inform their new school about their learning and development in the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Parent’s Evening
Our Parent’s Evening this term will be held on Tuesday 12th June 4.00pm—6.30pm. This is an opportunity for you to come along to discuss your child’s learning and development with their Key Person and for those whose children are going to school.
Please speak to your child’s key person to arrange a suitable for Parent’s Evening. We would like to ask that your children do not attend it with you!

Attendance and Funded Places
It is important for your child to attend Nursery
Regularly and on time so that they can learn and
develop their skills and knowledge. If your child
Receives 2, 3 and 4 year old funded learning then
it is a requirement that your child attends their
sessions regularly and arrival and collection times
are adhered to, so we are able to claim the grant from the Council. We cannot claim the grant for
your child if the requirements are not met and
sessions may have to be paid privately!
Please apply sun lotion to your child before they come to nursery. We can re-apply your child’s sun lotion to them in the afternoon if they are at nursery all day. Please label your child’s lotion and sun hats with their name.
Leaver’s Party

Hopefully the weather will be sunny as we hope to have a leaver’s picnic on 22nd June for the children and families that are going to school in September. Bring a picnic to share with your child and enjoy the fun and entertainment. Invites will be sent our
nearer the time.

We know that it is a busy time at Nursery at the beginning and end of sessions but could we please remind parents/carers that there is NO PARKING in the cul-de-sac or on the double yellow lines around Nursery. Please help us keep all children safe at Nursery by not bringing cars in the cul-de-sac.

Could you please complete a Holiday Form for any holidays you have planned so we know your child will not be in Nursery.
