Spring 2015

Hello to all our children, families, service providers & service users

Witamy wszystkich, Hola a todos, Hello Mindenkinek, Failté, Guten Tag, Ciao a tutti, Hello ਹਰ ਕੋਈ, خوش سب کو
A very warm welcome to all our children and families and especially those who are new to Highfield Nursery School & Children’s Centre.
We are now half way through the Spring Term and it seems a little late to be wishing you all ’Happy New Year’! I hope it is a happy, healthy year for you all.
Time passes by so quickly, it is important that we all take time to reflect on family life, celebrate our successes and build on these during the coming year.
Parents/carers and families are the most important influence on children and young people. If you require any support with the challenges you face as a parent/carer or as a family please do come and speak to us.
We are here to help you & your family and the support available covers a wide range of services.
The Nursery Setting is at the heart of our work and we constantly aim to further engage and involve parents/carers in their children’s learning.
We are committed to supporting and extending children’s development and learning, by offering a play based curriculum.
With your support we can build on what children already know, understand and can do, and celebrate their achievements together.
I hope you find the information in the Newsletter useful and informative.

Staying Safe and Protected

Working in partnership with our parents/carers we help children to keep themselves safe and to understand the importance of feeling safe. Protecting your child is paramount. Being aware of safety is something that comes gradually to your child.
Some Key Road Safety Messages for children: 1 Traffic is dangerous because it is fast and hard. It can hurt you very badly. 2 Always hold hands and stay on pavements! Look and listen for traffic
