Hello and a big welcome to all of our new Nursery families.
I hope you enjoy reading our class pages. This is where you can keep up to date with what's going on in your child's class.
This week has been all about settling in. We are busy getting to know your children and ensuring that they are all happy and settled. Part of this process is establishing routines and expectations.
There are still a few children who haven't yet joined us and we are looking forward to meeting them next week. The children who have already started have amazed us, showing confidence and resilience as they have left their parents at the gate. I am sure you are very proud! However, we need all parents to know that we are also empathising with you! We know it is an emotional experience letting go of your child's hand. Please be reassured that they are in safe hands.
Here is a little poem over which to ponder:
First Day of School
For many years you've held their hand
And been their loving guide
But now you know the time has come
To leave them by my side
It's only for a little while
Your child will learn and grow
And at the end of everyday
They'll tell you all they know
So as you walk away from them
Don't worry anymore
I'll take care of those precious gifts
When you leave them at the door
I'll nurture, care and educate
As if each one were mine
So trust our happy, caring school
They'll really be just fine
