This will be a chance for your child to play and meet with other P1 pupils, children who attend SWPS Nursery will be attending these sessions. If unfortunately the weather doesn’t look great please keep a look out for Twitter updates from the nursery team, we will attempt to email out to all parents also. The Nursery team do have access to a mobile number in the holidays, if you have any questions about the stay and play session, please call 07718662056* as you can imagine, staff are with the children so it may not be answered, if this happened please leave a detailed voicemail and someone will contact you, when they can.
