Our Trip around the world

Please can we ask that if you have relatives or friends in different countries, please can they send us a postcard addressed to the nursery at:
Sticky Faces Day Nursery
This will help us to explore more parts of the world and different cultures!
Maths and Literacy – This month we will be exploring the Gingerbread man story, looking at the repeated words and phrases and exploring the rhythm in the story.
|Reminders Please make sure your child leaves all of their toys at home. This avoids toys getting lost or broken. Now the weather is getting warmer, please ensure you are dressing your child accordingly.|
Moving forward , all children’s temperatures will be taken every day before they enter nursery by a member of our staff.
If your child has a temperature which is 38c or more your child will not be allowed to enter the nursery and you must monitor the temperature at home. If the temperature does not go down within 24 hours the nursery must be contacted and the child must Isolate.Read More
