Welcome to the Plume Avenue Nursery website !!

With Christmas fast approaching, some information about our last day. Nursery will officially close on Thirsday 13th December but on Friday 14th December we will be having our Christmas Celebration Morning.

Please remember that as this is not a normal nursery day a parent or carer will need to stay and there will be no lunch or afternoon session. Everyone will go home at 12.30 (ish).

The order of proceedings for the morning will be as follows ...

9.00 - Music & Movement in the Church
9.30 - Craft activities in the main hall
10.30 - Christmas songs in the Church
11.00 - Christmas snack for the children
11.30 - Christmas surprise (not Father Christmas)
12.30 - Finish for Christmas Break

Teas, coffees and mince pies will be available.

A couple of new links on the menu for you ... there is now the option to complete your registration form online - so if you're new to the setting or have major changes you'd like to make to your registration details, please follow that link and send us a form.

There is also a much shorter form for you to register your interest in sending your child to Plume Avenue. Complete that form and we'll get back to you within two working days to have a chat about what's available and how you can come along for a visit.

As the weather is starting to look a little changeable, please make sure your children are appropriately clothed for the weather, and prepared for any eventuality !! They will definitely need some kind of waterproof coat and ideally, a separate pair of shoes for indoors and out would be great.

As quite a few children are completely new to the nursery, please remember to label absolutely everything - it can be quite an exercise to match up child with missing clothing.

Also, just a reminder that we will again be using the online learning journal software Tapestry - if you haven't already signed up, please let Shelley know your email address and we'll get the process started for you.

We have updated our policies with regard to the introduction of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that came into force at the end of May. You can read our new policy here ...

Toys from home !!

While we appreciate these are somewhat of a 'comfort blanket' for some children, the toys that are coming in now seem to be getting smaller and smaller and therefore much easier to lose.

Ideally we would prefer the toys not to come in at all, but if they must come in, please be aware that we are unable to constantly monitor their whereabouts throughout the session !!

Also, please don't forget that if you qualify for the extended 30 hour funding scheme - you do need to re-apply each term - please visit our 'funding' page for more details or have a chat with Shelley.
