Newsletter – May 2016

Here is our newsletter for May 2016

Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Policy

We have recently updated this policy, which details how we as a nursery work to support children with additional needs and their families. You can download a copy of the policy from our website via the following link

Genuine European Portraits

On Wednesday 8 June we will be welcoming Genuine European Portraits back to the nursery.
Genuine European Portraits will take a photo of your child which is then turned into an amazing hand drawn portrait by their artists based in Barcelona. We’ve seen some beautiful drawings of our children over the years and will have more information for you shortly. In the meantime you can check out their website here

Summer Fair

Our Summer Fair is fast approaching, and we hope you will be able to join us on Saturday 11 June from 2 p.m.
Our theme this year is ‘A Right Royal Party’ to coincide with the Queen’s 90th birthday, and we will have a cake stall, BBQ, snow cones, photo booth, face painting and more!
We are again fundraising for Elland Silver Band, and we hope to have some fabulous brass music for you on Saturday 11 June from their Training Band section. This fantastic local organisation teaches children from all backgrounds to play brass instruments. They rely on fundraising to make the band accessible to all children, and to buy the instruments which they provide.
Elland Silver Youth Band are currently National Champions, and on Sunday they Came second in the European Championships in Lille! All of this achieved through the hard work of the volunteers who teach there.
You can find out more about the band on their website

Holiday Club

We are now taking bookings for the Spring Bank Holiday Club, Tuesday 31 May to Friday 3 June.
Please note that we will not be running Holiday Club sessions between Monday 8 and Friday 19 August. As some of you may be aware, we suffered a major leak in our roof over the winter and we need to take a couple of weeks to repair the damage caused now it has dried out. Our apologies for any inconvenience.
