Dear Parents and Carers,
Thank you very much for coming along and enjoying our Story Trail …the magic of a real baby, as Jesus, is always a real highlight for the children.
The raffle raised the grand sum of £344, thank you to everyone who helped – by donating prizes, making the hampers, selling and buying the tickets.
Update on Save Nursery Schools
We had a meeting on Tuesday which was very well attended and would now like to ask for your support in the following ways:-
1. Please can you sign the petition that is in the Centre
2. Please collect a blank petition sheet from the office, or print the one attached to this email, and get as many Cambridge friends, family and contacts to sign it. Please return to the office by 9th January at the latest.
3. Please take a Save Nursery School poster, or print the one attached to this email, so that your child/children can do a drawing on the bottom half of the poster and then display it in your window in order to raise awareness in the local community.
4. Write to your local MP to save Maintained Nursery Schools
Our aim is to get the promise of existing levels of funding for Maintained Nursery Schools beyond April 2020.
The petition needs to be in paper form (as an electronic petition by email needs at least 100,000 signatures to create a debate in parliament).
Diary date reminders
Thursday 6th and Tuesday 11th Dec – The children will be having a special roast for their Christmas lunch…if your child attends on both days they will be lucky and have two Christmas lunches!
Tuesday 11th and Thursday 13th December – Father Christmas will be dropping in to see children on these two days, all the children will therefore see Father Christmas at least once. Please keep this a secret so it is a surprise for the children. If your child is in the Nest and does not attend on Tuesday or Thursday, please talk to Nest staff.
Wednesday 12th December – Nursery Party Day and performance of The Elves and the Shoemaker by children from Morley Memorial Primary School. Party Day is just for the children and all the entertainment and food for the party is provided by Homerton. The Nest children will have their own parties during the week commencing 10th December.
Wednesday 19th December – Last day of Term
Thursday 3rd January – Spring Term starts
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support this term and to wish you, and your families, a happy and peaceful Christmas Holiday.
Alex and all the Homerton Staff
