May Newsletter

Welcome to our May Newsletter

First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who helped make the Easter Bunny Hunt a huge success! We had over 100 people come and find those little bunnies.. and in the awful Easter weather too! Another thank you to those who came along on April 22nd and helped to spruce up the preschool garden, we now have a fabulous Pirate Ship, freshly painted benches and more info graphics for the children to absorb their ABC’s and 1,2,3’s. It’s truly a wonderful ever evolving space for all our Children to enjoy daily.

I’d also like to extend a very warm welcome to our new starters this term- we are glad you chose our Little Deers Family and we all look forward to getting to know you!

Hours and Sessions Sept onwards

As you may have noticed, we have a high number of children attending Nutley now, this looks set to increase and continue after the summer break too- which is great!

So, if you can please register your interest with Zahra as to the sessions you wish your child to do come September, and even January, that will help a great deal with staff planning and making sure we have enough space for everyone. Thank you in advance…

There are only a few spaces left for sale now at this Saturday’s Quiz Night! Contact Sophie (Freddie’s Mum) to book your seats if you have not already! It’s a fun evening, with a cash bar and an amazing raffle!
