Nursery News

Exciting news first ! Tree House Baby Room opens on September the 1st. We already have the first ones booked in ! Please spread the word to family and friends, we don’t want to dissapoint anyone. Also just a reminder that settling in hours are FREE. Take as long as you need to be sure your child is ready for full sessions.

Also from September the 1st we will be open the earlier time of 7.30 am – 6.00 pm. Let us know if you’d like to use this earlier time so we have the correct number of staff. There is no extra charge for the extra time.

Chloe started her maternity leave on 5th of June, so you will notice Lizzie has returned to Tree House over the Summer months to help out before she starts her teaching career.
Children who are currently in Chloe’s key group will transfer into Trudy’s group.
Alicia is enjoying her new job and brand new house in the Weston-Super-Mare area.
Sadly Abbie is leaving at the end of July to return to college.

We are struggling to match items of clothing back to the correct owners – especially when we have numerous identical coats or pairs of shoes!! Please put children’s names in their clothing, in particular hats, coats, jumpers, shoes & comforters.

Tree House Summer Fete – Saturday 6th July 11am-3pm

Plans for the Fete are in full swing, we would like to say a big thank you for selling tickets for the amazing raffle, so many great prizes ! Please could you make sure all ticket stubs are returned with any money collected. We hope you, your family and friends can join us on this exciting day ! Local traders will have a wide selection of items for you at the craft fair. There will be refreshments, bouncy castle, balloon artist and other fun activities to get involved with. The raffle will be drawn at 2pm. There is still a little availability for traders to book a craft table if you know anyone who might want to book one just let us know.

Parents Evening

We are planning to have parents/carers evening on Thursday 8th August (6.30-8.00). This will give you a chance to come and see how your child spends his/her at Tree House.
It is the ideal time to speak to your child’s key person and discuss their progress as well as look at their folders. This evening is not compulsory, but we welcome all parents and carers. Please let us know if you can would like to come. Unfortunately we can not accommodate any children so if you are unable to find evening child care you are welcome to meet with your child’s key person another time. Just ask a member of staff for an appointment on a day that suits you and you can borrow your child’s folder to view at your own leisure.
The children that are leaving us to start school will have transfer forms completed, which will be available to read before they are sent to their Schools.
School Day Session
If your child attends Nursery for the School Day Session (8.30am-3.30pm) can you please ensure that they are collected before 3.30pm.

Transition to Pre-School

All children at Little End who were born between May 2010 – April 2011 will be moving up to Pre-School in September. We hope these transitions go smoothly and have already started to encourage the children to spend short spells in the Pre School environment. Individual new key group letters will be sent out soon.

New Parents/Carers

Welcome to all our new children and parents/carers. We hope your child settles well at Tree House. Please remember our open door policy at Nursery. Our members of staff are happy to discuss any concerns you may have.

Eco-Card designs
The children have all been creating eco-gift cards. We are in the process of sending the children’s designs to be printed. There is then an option to purchase them if you wish to (information to follow shortly).

Sun cream

Please, please apply cream to children before they attend Nursery. We will re-apply at 1.30pm, for children who attend the full day. If you would like us to use Nursery Sun cream ( Nivea factor 50+) on your child please pay the one off contribution of £1 if you haven’t already.
