Spring 2019 newsletter

Welcome to the Spring 2019 edition of our newsletter.

What we have been upto!

Over the last few weeks we have welcomed new children into our nursery, expanding our little family. So far this term we have enjoyed having fun in the snow, exploring with colour and lots of counting fun. We have recently started a rolling snack in nursery which seems to be working well, meaning the children can choose when to come for their snacks and not interrupting their play and learning.


At Little Cygnets we enjoy being part of our local community and taking part in Festivals and Celebrating such events. This week we have celebrated Chinese New Year by exploring with textures, tasting different foods and developing our fine motor skills using chop sticks. Next we will be celebrating Valentines Day, St.Davids Day, World Book Day, Shrove Tuesday, Mothers Day, Easter and much more...
