Wellingborough June News: Lollies, Park Trips and Butterflies

Wellingborough Park

Welcome to the June newsletter, I would like to say a big thank you to all our parents and carers for your patience around the building work we have going on, the refurbishment is nearly finished and I can assure you when you see the results you’ll be as over the moon as we are. 

June news

A very warm welcome to the new staff join the nursery this month; Ashleigh and Tammy are full time staff, they haven’t been assigned rooms yet, and Neesha and Lucy are bank staff. I’m sure you’ll see all of their smiling faces around the nursery soon!

Over one warm weekend the chrysalises hatched into beautiful butterflies, we fed them fresh fruit for about a week and then we set them free in the garden. The children all loved watching them fly away. 

The babies continued the gloop sensory theme by adding different herbs to it to encourage their sense of smell. Carrying on with this sensory play, in this hot weather toddlers and preschool made ice lollies! The toddlers used milk with a drop of vanilla essence and the preschool children squeezed the juice out of oranges to make theirs, they watched very excitedly as the lollies were put into the freezer and were even more excited to see the change when they came out a day later as frozen lollies. 

As the weather has been so glorious, the children have been on various walks around the park. The preschool took their snacks with them to eat in the park, toddlers had a great time feeding the ducks and discovering the new statues that had been erected.  

What’s coming up next month

Next month we will be looking at both Canada Day and Independence Day, we will be racing our new remote control cars over the British Grand Prix weekend, celebrating Eid al-Adha, looking at how our bodies work and the importance of exercise over the Summer Olympics and we finish the month with International Friendship Day.

We hope that July continues to bring us lots of sunshine so that they children can continue to make the most of their outdoor areas, exploring and discovering at every opportunity!

Other important information

Just a quick note to remind parents of the importance of continual awareness of social media, which we will continue to raise in nursery. Social networking is hugely popular. Many young people are sophisticated in the way they use social media apps and websites, tailoring their communication for different audiences, and accessing them from a range of devices including smartphones, tablets, and games consoles. 

But social media, like all forms of public communication, comes with some risks. Not all of these risks turn into actual problems; and if children never face any risks, they never learn how to deal with them. By helping your child understand what the risks are, you can play a big part in preventing them from turning into problems. 

We are now adopting The Old Station Nursery policies, I sent out a link on Tapestry last week, but for those of you who missed it, please click here to access all policies.

Please take the time to read them as there are some changes to the Bambino ones, particularly around medicine and sickness exclusion times.  

A few hot weather reminders! Can you make sure your child has named loose fitting cotton top to put on over bare shoulders and a sunhat for when we are outside. Can you put sun cream on your child before they come to nursery, we will top it up during the session/day if needed. If your child has their own specific sun cream can we have a bottle to keep here. Be mindful of the sandals you send your child to nursery in, they should at least have a strap at the back and preferably no open toes as this is a trip hazard. 

Thank you all for your continued support!

Jackie Berrie, Nursery Manager
