Loose Parts Play

As a team we all agree on the benefits of open ended resources and would appreciate your help to source the following items:

  • corks
  • glass pebbles
  • pine cones
  • pebbles
  • wooden pegs

Nursery Fundraising

To help raise funds, the Nursery we will be selling raffle tickets for our two Christmas hampers. We would also appreciate donations for the hampers and any other raffle prizes you are able to donate. Raffle tickets will go on sale next week.
