Heads Up…02/12/22

Dear Parents & Carers, 

We are now definitely getting ready for Christmas! The nursery is looking very festive! 

Staffing: Next week Mrs Day will start her phased return. She will be doing 11am- 1pm each day. She is still wearing her boot but is very keen to come in and be with the children. She has missed them very much! 

We have 3 new staff starting in January. Mrs Hebbert will be replacing Mrs Jackson as our class teacher. She has already been in to visit the orange group.

Holly Bradley will be starting her new role as office manager in the afternoons. Mrs Borland will also be starting as our new wraparound leader in the afternoons. We are really looking forward to welcoming them into team Tenterfield! 

Christmas songs: we are learning lots of new songs ready for our Christmas sing-along next Friday. Mrs Jackson will be putting them on Tapestry so you can sing them together at home. 

Christmas cards: if you have any old Christmas cards please bring them into nursery so the children can use them to make their own cards. 

Junk modelling : we are very short of junk modelling resources. Please save your boxes and recyclable materials and bring them into nursery so the children can be creative with them! 

Tenterfield Tinies: we have a session at the nursery on Friday 23rd dec 9.30-11am for children 3 and under and their siblings. Please come and have a play! 

Don’t forget to follow Tenterfield Tinies on our Facebook page for all the latest information. 

Petition: A petition has been started to increase funding for early years settings. Maintained nursery schools have been asked to encourage our parents to sign. We really appreciate your support.

Christmas sing along (red, orange, yellow, green & blue group): on Friday 16th Dec we are inviting you to our festive songs in the garden. If your child is in the red or orange group then please return at 2.30. Your child will go into the nursery with their key person. Parents are invited for ‘pre show’ mince pies and drinks in the garden.

The songs will start at 2.45pm, for approx 30mins. Please can your child come wearing a bobble hat and scarf.

There will be a special visitor at the end….shhhhh!

Christmas sing along (pink group): on Friday 16th Dec we invite you to come into the nursery to sing Christmas songs with your child. Please arrive at 11am for songs and festive fun!

Christmas holiday club:  Bookings are now live for Weds 21st & Thurs 22nd Dec on School Gateway.

Don’t miss out on the bespoke option of a special Tenterfield Xmas craft morning on Weds 21st for just £20. The perfect opportunity to do your Christmas food shop whilst the children are busy!

We also have an all day option 8am-4pm for £40 on both days. All bookings are made via School Gateway. Places are limited. Please book ASAP.

Please remember all children aged 3-8 yrs are very welcome, these children do not have to attend Tenterfield or St Marys, we welcome all children in our community. Please tell your friends and family. We will need new families to complete a short admissions form to enable them to book on School Gateway. Please tell them to contact Rhoda in the office 01438714564. 

Don’t forget Christmas jumper day is on Thursday!
