Longlevens News Letter September 2018


Our Garden

Our chestnuts children have had a busy summer enjoying our newly improved garden area and padding pools. Thank you to all the parents for sun creaming your children before drop off during the heat wave. This really helped the staff to just get on with settling the children in and getting on with the lovely activities they had planned for the children.

We are continuing to improve our outside area to create more learning opportunities for the children.Our next project will be our ball drops and water walls. Watch this space!

Nursery Photographs.

Rebecca Northway our nursery photographer will be here taking your children's photographs the week commencing 24th September. Please have a look on the parents board to see your child's allocated photo day. If you are on holiday this week, Rebecca is at our Barnwood nursery the week before, so feel free to contact Leah and book your session over there. Leah 01452 610979
