July 2019 Newsletter

    Dear Parents and Carers of our Worcester Park, Kingston and Stoneleigh Nurseries,

    We hope you have all enjoyed the month of June, and are all looking forward to the nice weather approaching.

    Our theme during June was focused around healthy eating, keeping ourselves fit, and exploring different cultures and foods from around the world. The children particularly enjoyed using their senses to explore the smell, touch and taste of different fruits and vegetables. The children also enjoyed exploring different foods from around the world and recognising different countries flags.

    Please take a look at our gallery of photographs of what the children have been learning and exploring from the month of June at our nurseries……………………………………….

    As we are now in the season of Summer, the children will begin to observe the changes in season, as the weather gets warmer. To promote sun safety the children will be learning about the importance of wearing sun cream, and the protective clothing they can wear to keep cool and protected. The children will also be looking at holiday destinations, and our Pre-School children will have the opportunity to take our nursery bear on holiday with them, and record a diary account of their time away. In the garden the children will also be enjoying lots of sand and water play.
