Bourne Valley Nursery Group

Dear Parents,

Dear Parents, The summer is almost upon us and the children are making the most of the sunshine and having lots of fun outdoors. As the weather has started to brighten up, please ensure you bring in a named bottle of sun cream and a sun hat to enable your child to access the gardens safely throughout the day.

We have the exciting Royal Wedding to look forward to celebrating this term. In order to celebrate nursery staff will be wearing Red, White and Blue and we invite the children to join us in this. The kitchen will be providing a traditional English Lunch for the children.

Candy our Pre-school Hamster

Just as a reminder Candy is happy to spend weekends with any family. Please ask pre-school staff when she is available – she is very friendly.


For those leaving for school this summer please can you provide us with your leaving dates and a memory stick in order for us to transfer your child’s journal to this as a record for you.

In order for us to have your child’s journals up to date we will stop adding entries on the 29th June and then working on their transfer to school summative documents.

Early Help

Parents are always able to speak to key people or management, safeguarding lead or SENCo during the day, we also have an open door policy and confidential issues can be raised. Please do keep nursery in the loop in regards to any changes at home which may impact your child’s well-being.


Thursday 28th June

Fraser photographers are here today, if you do not attend on a Thursday and would like some photos taken please come to the office to book a time slot.

Polite Notice – Session Times

All sessions are pre-set by booking your child into nursery which then enables us to provide the correct ratios we are required to follow as set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Guidelines.

We politely ask you to ensure you are adhering to your start and end times for your child’s sessions. We will not be able to open the doors and allow you to enter the building until your start time. Please also be mindful when collecting your children that you arrive to nursery in time for your child’s collection time.

If you are late to collect your child from their session you will be asked to sign the late book, more than one late collection may result in a late charge being issued.

Changes of bookings

In order to make changes to your booked sessions we require 4 weeks notice in writing, a change of booking form will need to be completed in the office.


Please be aware when you notify us of holiday dates, if you wish to change the date we require 2 weeks notice to adjust the booking, this is due staff ratio’s and deployment.

Nursery Uniform

We do have a children’s uniform available for you to purchase. Please come to the office if you would like to order some.

Polo Shirt £7.50
Sweatshirt £9.25
