Welcome back to Nursery for 2017. We are so looking forward to seeing our returning children and also looking forward to meeting our new little characters. This half term is dedicated to feeling confident in our new surroundings and settling in. This is hugely beneficial and a time where we can transition gently into new routines and learn boundaries of Nursery life in a calm and careful way.
