Dear Parents, we are really looking forward to welcoming you and your children to Nursery in September.
To familiarise your child with Nursery we recommend watching the welcome video from Mrs Bass https://stpeters-ceps.primarysite.media/media/new-nursery-intake-september-2020-welcome-video. Your child may also enjoy watching some of the home learning videos from Miss Burton https://stpeters-ceps.primarysite.media/playlist/nursery
Please ensure you name all of your child's clothes and possessions
You will need to bring the following into Nursery:
- A named water bottle
- Wellington Boots in a plastic carrier bag
- Black velcro strapped PE pumps
- A sun hat when the weather is bright
- A warm coat, hat and gloves when the weather gets colder - We try and go outside whatever the weather!
Please note, you do not need to bring a spare change of clothes for your child (due to coronavirus we wish to keep the cloakrooms as clear as possible). Should your child need them, there are spare clothes in our Nursery cupboard).
You and your child will be invited to a brief one-to-one meeting with their teacher during the week commencing 7th September.
Your child will then start their Nursery transition from the 14th September (times and dates will vary depending on which group your child is in)
Your child will be in one of the following groups. Please help to familiarise them with their animal group.
Full time - Monday to Friday: The Elephants
Part-time - Monday to Wednesday morning: The Giraffes
Part-time - Wednesday afternoon to Friday: The Zebras
Please keep checking back here for more information.
Congratulations to our Nursery children 2020!
