Update from Lanterns Nursery Team

Dear All,


What a busy half term it has been. 

We have really enjoyed having so many children in nursery again, it has been lovely to see parents outside and in the garden area and to be able to say 'hello'.  


Please make sure that you access your Tapestry account to see entries and photos of the fantastic learning experiences that your child has had the opportunity to engage in. Make sure that you click the 'like' button or even share a comment so that we know you have seen the entries. 


Now that the weather is becoming wetter and colder, please ensure that your child has a waterproof coat, waterproof trousers, or an all in one and a pair of wellies. These items need to be named and put in a named bag (no plastic please, PE bag style or material bag, would be great) so that they are easily accessible by the children. If you do not have waterproof trousers or a bag, please let us know. We will be sending wellies and waterproofs home for half term so that you can return them named and in a bag after half term. 


It is really important to help children to become independent especially in their self-help skills, such as, dressing and undressing. Please encourage your child to put their coat, waterproof and wellies on themselves by giving lots of encouragement, allowing extra time and offering assistance once they have had a go themselves.  


You will now get Parentmail through our website provider these will be sent from – Please make sure that you are getting these emails as this is how we will communicate important information. 


Remember that Monday 2nd November is an INSET day and nursery will be closed. We look forward to seeing you all again on or after Tuesday 3rd September. In the meantime, enjoy the additional time with your families, have fun and make memories.
