Welcome to the Plume Avenue Nursery website !!

Firstly, a Happy New Year to everyone and many thanks to all of you who were able to attend our Christmas Festivities morning on December 19th, we hope you had a good time !

Many thanks too for all the lovely gifts and treats we received - these have been secreted away and will be rationed out to all the staff over the next couple of weeks !!

A quick reminder that we open once again on Monday 7th January at 9.00am.


Due to a church visit, nursery will be CLOSED on
Thursday, 17th January 2019 for the whole day !!

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause,
we have only just be made aware.


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.
