Dear parents welcome to our December Newsletter. The topic of the month is Christmas.
Our children are very excited and looking forward to seeing Santa Claus. The whole nursery is getting ready to breathe the magical Christmas atmosphere.
Baby room activities
This month to support our babies’ communication skills, the staff will introduce Christmas story with Christmas puppets and Christmas flash cards. The babies will practice Christmas songs with Preschool children’s support and use different musical instruments.
They will have the chance to play and pretend to visit the Santa Claus house (the wooden house that we will decorate for all Christmas period).
They will enjoy mixing and discovering new materials during messy and art and craft activities such as snow, Christmas decorations, wooden stars etc…
The colour of the month will be red.
Tweenies/Preschool room activities
All children in the main room are encouraged to write a letter for Father Christmas, with a long list of their wishes…Poor parents!!!
Some children are starting to write some Christmas words or some familiar alphabet letters and in the main time to practical fine and gross movements.
In the math area, we will introduce our Avant Calendar, this can help the children to count and learn: How many more days left until Christmas? Also, they will mix the different shapes to make Christmas decorations.
They will be surprised to see our new home corner this month – “Santa Claus’s House”. They will have to chance to be Father Christmas, elf reindeers, snowmen while having the role play.
All our Children in this month will focus on practising the Christmas songs to get them ready for our Christmas show.
The story of the month will be “A letter for Santa”.
The nursery will be closed on Friday 20th for teachers’ training.
Our nursery will close for Christmas Holiday from 24th December at 1.00 p.m. and to re-open on Thursday 2nd January. We would appreciate if you could let us know whether your child will attend the nursery on 24th or not to help the planning.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! A massive “thank you” to you all for supporting us throughout 2019!
We are happy to announce that we have a few more members join our team this month. Sarah will be our new baby room leader. She is level 3 qualified teacher with more than 10 years of experience in the industry. You will have the chance to meet her on 9th December. We also would like to warmly welcome Manjola and Cheniel who joined us by the end of November. They are currently based in our Tweenies group. We trust that our children will benefit from the various expertise they have got.
We understand that all of you are in a rush in the morning. However, could we kindly remind you to consider others by closing your buggy properly in the morning then store in the shed.
To avoid disappointment, we would also appreciate if our parents can help us to label your child(ren) belongings as we notice that a few of our children are having the same shoes or jackets.
