Nursery Newsletter January 2023

Hello to all our lovely families!

Happy New Year! We both hope that you had a restful break and had a lovely Christmas if you were celebrating.
If your child was born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019, they will be able to start school in September 2023. Mrs Bowker is doing a fabulous job helping families apply for a school place. The closing date is 15th January 2023 at 11:59pm, so if you haven't applied you must do so by then. Mrs Bowker will be able to help you with this.
We have family support workers running a parenting course this week. This will run for six weeks until Tuesday 14th February. There are a few families already who are signed up.
Every participant will get a free wellbeing pack at the end of the course. Please see your child's key worker if you are interested in joining this course

Bags and Coats


Thank you for bringing in a bag for your child with clean clothes inside. Please note it only needs to contain clean spare clothes every day. Snacks and water bottles do not need to brought into nursery. Your child will have regular access to fresh water, toast and fruit every day. Please remember to label all clothing to avoid any confusion.

Early Help and Family Support

If you need help with accessing food banks, benefits, housing, finances, counselling, parenting courses, English classes or adult education please ask to see Mrs Sally Appadu. She can make an early help referral. There are many agencies that can help families at the moment in Birmingham.
You can also access Family Support by phoning Doddington Children's Centre on 0121 477 6440. You can leave a message with the receptionist and a duty family support worker will phone back. They will phone you back on the same day between 12noon and 4.00pm.

Attendance Matters

We understand that children are unwell sometimes but it is also important for us to promote good attendance at nursery.
The reasons for children to attend regularly at their early years setting are to support their learning and development, to make sure that children are kept safe, their wellbeing is promoted, and they do not miss out on their entitlements and opportunities.
Well done to those children whose attendance has been above 80% this term! They will be awarded an excellent attendance certificate in the last week of term.
