Welcome to our August 2018 newsletter

Welcome to our first Harestock Nursery Newsletter which we will be producing on a monthly basis to keep you all informed of our activities at the Nursery.


We hope you have all had a wonderful summer and the children have had built some treasurable memories.


We have a new member of staff Anne-Marie who has been a childminder for many years and has lots of experience within early years. Nicky has also joined as a senior member of the team from another nursery and brings 15 years of early years’ experience within nursery settings.

As you may have noticed Danielle is having a baby!  So she will be leaving us on maternity leave from October- Jasmine has moved from the Kingfishers room into the Robins room, she will be taking over the babies, with Danielle moving temporarily downstairs into Puffins room.


Julia is still in the Kingfishers room with support from Nicky and Anne-Marie. Next term we will be looking at all about me, what is special to us and autumn you will see plenty of pictures, models and artwork produced by them coming home soon.



The Puffins which is headed up by Georgina will also have support from Danielle, Anne- Marie and Nicky. They continue with the theme independence – Well done to those who are or have been potty training. We are now also using open cups, pouring our own drinks, setting the table and clearing our own plates. Such clever children you all have.


Preschool will also continue with literacy and numeracy skills daily cementing knowledge ready for school and life ahead of them.  Each child will have their own folder so keep a look out for it to see what they have been
