March Newsletter 2019


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

    We hope everyone enjoyed the sunshine and warmer days in February, and of course had a fantastic Valentine’s Day with their loved ones.

    To celebrate Valentine’s Day the children made beautiful cards for their families and enjoyed an outing to the local shops to browse the bouquets of flowers. The children also enjoyed making Valentine’s cards and tissue paper bouquets. The children enjoyed exploring with chopsticks and noodles whilst learning about Chinese New Year, the year of the pig masks. The children have also enjoyed taking part in activities such as parachute games, obstacle courses and soft ball games.

    Take a look at our gallery of photographs of what the children have been learning and exploring from the month of February at our nurseries…
