December 2019 News Letter Monday,Feb 10, 2020 | 11:02 AM
The last term of the year is nearly over, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continuous support and feedback, enabling us to make improvements and provide the best possible care.
The last few weeks before we break up are due to be very busy, so please make sure you have all the dates in your diary! The children have made a lovely post box for any Christmas cards/letters they wish to post, it is located in the ‘Santas Grotto/Winter wonderland.’
All children will be taking part in lots of festive activities including; making decorations, Christmas cards, singing Christmas songs and making calendars, if any parents/carers have any requests please speak to your child’s key person.
Due to the low numbers in the nursery we have decided to include all children in this years’ nativity. It will take place on Tuesday 17th December at 3:45pm. All children will be given a slip to inform you of your child’s part and costumes they may need. If your child will not be able to attend, please let a member of staff know to ensure we replace all characters.
Recently, we have been teaching the children about how we can be kind and doing something nice for others. We have been in contact with King George and Queens hospital and will be creating boxes to donate to the children’s wards for the children that will be in hospital over the Christmas period. Due to it being a hospital, they have kindly requested that no second hand items are donated.
Some of the items that would be appreciated are; books, puzzles, arts and crafts resources, DVDs, CDs, playdough, popular themed toys such as Frozen, Peppa pig etc and their ‘Brave items’ – these can be little colouring books, pencils, medals etc and these can be for all age ranges for boys or girls.
If you would like to donate, we will have a box set up in our ‘Santa’s grotto’ where any items can be dropped off, we are aiming to take the items to the hospital by Thursday 19th December.
Please note: the nursery will be closing on Friday 20th December 2019 and we will return on Thursday 2nd January 2020. If you child is accessing the funding only, they will return on Monday 6th January 2020. Please remember that any children accessing the funding only are required to pay £2.50 per day for their meals.
Look at all the amazing activities we have been taking part in!

“"Thank you all so much for looking after my child for 3 enjoyable years. She has had a fantastic time, and talks about you all the time."”
“"I currently have my son at this pre-school and I think it was my best choice. My son can be very difficult sometimes, and without the support of his key worker and manager, I would be lost. They are helping us in every sense, very good advise and working together (at home and pre-school) is excellent!!! We can notice the big improvement. All the staff are very professional and caring. "”
“"Overall, we absolutely love this pre-school. Words can’t express our gratitude and appreciation for all the hardworking staff at Rising Stars!!! Highly recommended."”
“"I currently have twins within this pre-school. They are both Autistic and they can be very much hard work but the SENCO who is also the twins' key worker never fails to smile or teach them something new. They are both very toilet trained and are talking a little bit more every day. She has helped them eat by themselves, drink by themselves, ask for things and even be nice and say 'I love you', words I never thought I would hear."”
“"My children are both non-verbal and have meltdowns regularly but their key worker seems to just know them and there needs, she is always there if I need her and is always willing to help to make sure they get the best start in life. I see my children extremely happy and improving every day."”
