January 2017 Studley Newsletter


Please can we remind everyone not to let anyone in without a member of staff being present.

Thank you

Signing in and out

We will no longer require you to sign your child in and out, the staff will now be keeping an accurate log recording your child’s times of arrival and departure.

Our new theme throughout the nursery is;

All about me

If you have some photos of your family, pets or any item e.g toy, place or person, that is special to your child please could you send them in either via tapestry, email or hand them in to a staff member. Thank you


Our planning is based on childrens individual target plans, observations from tapestry, childrens interests, our current theme and parents suggestions. We would really appreciate you letting a member of staff know if you have any suggestions/ ideas so that we can incorporate your ideas into future planning.
