Happy 1st December everyone!
We can't believe it's just over three weeks until Christmas day! Where has the time gone this year?
We hope you're all feeling festive today. There's always lots going on for parents at this time of year - so this is your reminder that, if it all feels too much, take a breath, sit down, and have a cuppa and a mince pie!
The most important things are your loved ones around you and seeing smiles on your little ones faces. The world of social media makes it look like everyone is so calm and collected, but remember, most likely everyone is feeling as frazzled at each other - so this is us saying you are doing AMAZING!
We don't want to add to parents plates of things to remember, so we are just here to make sure your little ones have lovely, fun-filled festive weeks here at nursery in the lead up to Christmas.
Here's what we've got planned in the run up to Christmas. We always love our families to get involved by sending their little ones to nursery in Christmas jumpers/PJs/onesies, but if it adds to your to do list and you can't, please don't worry! We have lots of Christmas accessories and fun stuff already at nursery, so your little one will not miss out! We are hopefully here to ease the burden!
Week commencing xx of December:
Every year we have a charity raffle in the lead up to Christmas to raise funds for a good cause, alongside raising some extra funds for nursery.
This year we are fundraising for a charity called Comfort Cases. Comfort Cases Comfort Cases provide backpacks filled with comfort and personal care items for youth entering the foster care system. Typically, children are given a bin bag to pack up their belongings when they are removed from their homes. The team at Comfort Cases are working to end this practice, while providing the essentials for a child’s first few days in foster care.
If any parents have any good quality prizes, or work for companies that may be kind enough to donate items, to help us raise money, please contact nursery. The raffle will be drawn by the end of the year.
You can also support Comfort Cases directly in many ways, so just visit their website to see how you can help.
