If you go down to the woods today ..with group 3

Our Nature Nurture sessions for group 3 have begun and the children have been having fun down in the woods. As we participate in a variety of activities the children are learning all about their world and developing confidence, independence and self esteem. They are enthusiastic about sharing their experiences with friends and a new display area has been set up with a special floor book and some of the things we have found. Be sure to have a look at what we are doing over the coming weeks. Parents welcome!

Children in need

Children have had fun filled day celebrating “Pudsy Day”. We’ve had a chat about the charity and less fortune children. We’ve been dancing with Pudsy and had our faces painted. We also made some “spotty biscuits ” to take home.

Today we’ve raised £61,40

WELL DONE!!

Sickness

Dear parents/ carers

We have had a number of reported cases of Hand, Foot and Mouth and chicken pox in the nursery.

Hand ,Foot and Mouth is a viral infection that can spread very quickly from children to children ,especially in a school or nursery environment.

Small blisters will appear on the hands and feet with ulcers potentially appealing in the mouth.

Children must remain absent from the nursery till all blisters are fully healed.

This on average can be 5-10 days.

Please see the link below for further information

Chicken pox

These are the symptoms that you should be looking out for:

  • high temperature
  • child feeling generally unwell or more upset than normal
  • red spots appearing on the body
  • loss of appetite

Children will be off nursery for around 5 days ,once the spots stop appearing, they crust over and the child is well in themselves.

Please refer to HNS guidelines or to speak to your local pharmacist for more information .
