Dear parents, carers and Robins,
We have had a wonderful first few weeks getting to know our new children and enjoying spending time with our 'old' Robins. It has been lovely to see the children settling, making new friends and beginning to feel more confident and comfortable in Nursery. Please see some photos below of the children exploring the Nursery and meeting the school rabbits! There is further information and dates below and if you have any questions please do ask a member of the Nursery team.
