Welcome to Plume Avenue Nursery      

Following our latest Ofsted inspection on the 8th June 2018 we have now received our rating of GOOD !!!

Thank you to all the parents who took the time to have a chat with the inspector and made such positive comments.

The report is now available to read on the Ofsted website by following this link ...


Welcome To the Plume Avenue Nursery website.

With the weather at the moment being more than a little changeable, please make sure your children are appropriately clothed for the weather, and prepared for any eventuality !!

If it is sunny, please make sure your child(ren) are sun-creamed before they get to nursery - we will 'top up' throughout the day if necessary and with regard to footwear, summer shoes if at all possible, but ideally not open-toed sandals or crocs as these do seem to be more prone to tripping.

Yet again, a reminder to label absolutely everything - with children taking off jumpers, hoodies and cardigans because of the warm weather and dropping hats wherever, we are finding it quite an exercise to match up child with missing clothing.

Finally, more thanks to those who have just signed up to Tapestry - if you're one of those who haven't yet, we're going to starting bossing you about to get you online so please give Steve a note of your email address and we can get things started for you.


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


For those children who are making the big step to mainstream school in September, we would appreciate it if you could let us know which school you got. This makes it a little easier for us when it comes to preparing for the transition process and when schools come to visit !!


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.
