Children’s Centres Proposed Closures

Many of you may have read or seen the news that children’s centres within the local area are under proposals to close, with Stibbard being named as one.

This is your chance as parents to have your say on what the building could be used for, if the children centre services can no longer be provided in the building as the proposal sets out. It is for all people of Norfolk to have their say, as well as parents & staff of the nursery & the school.

The nursery, breakfast & after-school club are now managed by the school, so are not classed as one of the services that are provided under a Children’s Centre, but this does mean that if the closures go ahead there might be an opportunity for the nursery & school to extend.

Therefore, we would strongly urge everybody to read the document & have a say on what you would like to see provided in the building if the proposed closures go ahead, by following the instructions on the link below.

The consultation ends at midnight tomorrow so time is running out! Have your say!

Many thanks for your continued support of the nursery, breakfast & after school club

Why we remember…

This afternoons nursery children were very lucky to have taken part in a short walk to Stibbard Church to look at the poppy displays. The children listened to a short cbbc film which explains the reasons in child appropriate terms of why we wear poppies before we left, & that the soldiers helped to keep us safe. The children were impeccably behaved and they are a credit to our nursery! If you have a chance to visit Stibbard Church to see the poppies we highly recommend you go to see the moving tributes inside the Church.

Nursery News-Autumn term 2

We are looking forward to welcoming back our families after October half term.

The nursery faerie’s have been busy over the half term & have once again spread some magic in our nursery, making it an exciting environment to come back too, with a change of room layout & resources to reignite the children’s interests again.

We are going to be having a focus on maths and our topic will be ‘Marvellous Me’. Now all of the new children have settled into nursery life it is a great time to give them opportunities to talk about themselves and the things that are important to them, all of which will be covered throughout this next half term…also discussing celebrations they take part in toward the end of the term,  leading into the festive period. Yes it really is coming around that quickly!

The nursery, breakfast & after-school club numbers are ever increasing. Therefore we have limited spaces to accept 3 to 4 year olds from January 2019. Our 2 year spaces are extremely limited too, so if you are interested in your child attending our nursery please enquire without delay. We do have quite an extensive waiting list in place. We still have spaces for the breakfast & after-school club for your after school childcare needs with amazing activities provided every day!

For any enquiries please feel free to pop in or email Tracey Bunting Daycare Manager on tbunting@stibbardallsaints.com
