Lytham Club Day

Thank you to everyone who came down to Lytham Club day to support us, it was so lovely to see so many faces. A huge well done also to our pre-school children who looked fantastic in their woodland creatures’ outfits. We are pleased to tell everyone that we won first place for our amazing float. A big thank you also to our learning curve team for putting it all together we couldn’t have done it without you.

Summer Weather

We are due some lovely weather coming up over the next few weeks, please can you ensure that your child has sun cream and a hat when they come to nursery which are both labelled as we will still be going out in our gardens and within the community. As we are a sun safe nursery we follow strict guidelines when playing in sunny weather and ensure that the children are kept hydrated and cool throughout our play. We are also aware that the weather can occasionally be a little miss leading and spouts of rain can occur so please can you also ensure you pack a rain coat as and when required.
