Shepherd Lodge Newsletter November 2018

Lytham Lodge

We are delighted to announce that Learning Curve has taken over Giggles! to celebrate this new and exciting chapter, we have renamed the nursery as ‘Lytham Lodge’. We are very excited to welcome Lytham Lodge into our nursery family and wish them lots of luck for the future.

Parents Evening

We would like to invite all parents to our parents evening on Thursday the 15th November. We value the opinions of parents as you know your child best and by organising a parents evening throughout different times of the year it gives us as practitioners a chance to meet with you and discuss your child’s development over the past few months. The meetings are normally around 10-15 minutes and within this time we will discuss all about your child’s development and what we will be working on in the next upcoming months. It’s also a great time to find out if your child has any new interests or hobbies at home that would link in with our nursery activities. If you would like to book in a meeting please speak to your child’s key person.

Children In Need

Children in need this year will be on Friday 16th November. We are inviting all the children to come in dressed up in anything spotty. Throughout the week we will be doing lots of fundraising activities such as a bake sale, sporting challenges and more!

Christmas Bazaar / Elf Trail Bookings

Our Christmas Bazar will be on Monday the 10th December at the Fylde Scout Activity centre located on Heyhouses lane in St Annes 6pm-8pm. There will be lots of different Christmas themed stalls, activities food and drink within the centre for everyone to explore. Back by popular demand this year is our magical Christmas Trail! We have had contact with the north pole and to the big man himself and yes Santa Claus will be making an appearance! He won’t be alone though he will be bringing his trusty Elf team who will be helping the staff at Learning Curve transform the woodland area into a spectacular Christmas trail. Bookings are being taking now at the Elf headquarters, please call head Elf Anne on 01253 407172 to book your slot, the first slot available is from 6pm and the last booking time being 7:45pm. Our trail is outdoors so please make sure you wrap up nice and warm and wear appropriate footwear e.g. wellies as the floor will be muddy.

Email Service

We will now be using an email reminder service from our secure connect device when emailing all our newsletters, reminders and any other information regarding the goings on at Shepherd Lodge. Please could all parents pop into the office and check we have your correct email address on our system.
