This morning the Nursery class welcomed their parents in for a “stay and play” session. Parents had the opportunity to observe the morning routine and to engage in fun play activities. A great morning was had by all. This is part of our ongoing “Getting ready to learn” initiative, we are delighted with the positive feedback we are getting about this very worthwhile program. The next phase will be the “ Big Bedtime Read”, details to follow.

Phase two will be on Friday – 9.30 – 10.30, this is the “Stay and Play”session, looking forward to seeing you there.
