Welcome back to all our children and families and a big Birkbees welcome to all our new children and families. I hope you had a lovely Easter holiday. We are ready for the new term with lots of learning and fun activities planned for your children. Keep a look out on Parentzone at what your child has been learning in nursery and also check out our Facebook pages and posts to see what’s going on in and around Birkbees.
Staff Changes at Birkbees
We have welcomed some new staff members at Birkbees and are pleased to have Chloe who is working in Queenbees room. We will be saying goodbye to Natalie in July as she goes on maternity leave and whilst she is away Naomi will be joining Birkbees as Deputy manager.
Learning at home
In nursery the children are presented with a broad curriculum based on the EYFS to stimulate and encourage development in all areas. Staff plan a range of activities based around a theme or topic. Each term they will give out Learning At Home sheets for you to see what your child will be learning in nursery and some activity ideas for you to carry on learning at home.
Children learn through play both indoors and outdoors. We plan for this and encourage all children to spend time outside during the nursery day. Please ensure your child has correct clothing for the time of year

Family Learning Events
Each term in nursery the rooms hold a family learning Event when parents, grandparents and other carers are asked to come in to nursery and take part in their child’s learning alongside their friends and key person. This is a great opportunity for you to see how your child spends their day and all the playing and learning that takes place. Look out for dates of these in your child’s room.
