Butterflies Children's Day Nursery in Cannock

Newsletter – October, November & December 2018
Themes
The themes for the above months are:
Autumn, Jungle and Christmas
We will be looking at how the changing of the seasons affects both plants and animals.  To link with the jungle we are discussing jungle animals and creating pictures.
We will be creating a number of Christmas crafts including Christmas decorations, Christmas cards and writing letters to Santa.

Photographs
Academy Photography will be here on Thursday 18th October.  If your child is not in on this day you are welcome to bring them to have their photograph taken.  If you wish to purchase prints they will be back before Christmas.

Diary dates
Halloween – Wednesday 31st October.  It would be great if the children could dress up in a spooky and scary outfit for the day.  We will be doing Halloween activities.

Bonfire Night – Monday 5th November
.  As this falls at the beginning of the week we will be drawing firework pictures from the week commencing 29th October.

Remembrance Day – Sunday 11th November
.  Starting on 6th November we will be painting poppies to commemorate this special day.

Children in Need – Wednesday 14th November
.  We would be grateful if your child could dress up in fancy dress or spots and give a voluntary donation of £2 to this great cause on the day.
There will be colouring and hat making activities throughout the day.

Christmas Jumper Day – Friday 14th December

We will be wearing our Christmas Jumper on Friday 14th December, please feel free to dress your child in theirs.


Clothing
The weather is now changing but the children will still have outside play.  Please ensure their coats, hats, gloves and wellies (we need these for outdoor play to prevent their shoes getting muddy and wet) are provided and labelled with their name.  Please label all their clothing as we have over 25 children in during any one week and are unable to remember who arrived in what clothes.
We have the benefit of grass outside which in the wetter months can become quite muddy.  In addition we also have a mud kitchen outside which the children love to play in.  Please try not to send them in their best clothes as they will undoubtedly get dirty.

Children bringing in Toys
If your child brings in any toys, can you please ensure they are put in their bags in the cloakroom.  We will not be responsible if they go missing after they have taken them into the play areas.

Change of days/hours
For any change of hours we do require 4 weeks’ notice. If you do require extra hours before the 4 weeks please ask as this will depend upon availability.

Christmas closure
These premises will close at the end of day on Monday 24th December, and re-open on Wednesday 2nd January 2019

Christmas Party
We are in the process of planning a Christmas Party for the children.  Further details will follow.

Kind regards
Chrissie and the team
