Hello and Goodbye
We would like to say a big hello to Dylan and Zaevion who both joined our baby room last month. A big welcome to Bay Tree House and we hope they enjoy their time with us. Sadly we are saying goodbye to Oliver who is leaving our Yellow room and Eleanor who is leaving our After School club and Ariel who is leaving our weekend nursery. We would like to wish them all the very best in their new setting. We are also saying a sad goodbye to Danielle who has now finished her training and is moving on to pastures new and to Sara who has left our weekend Nursery. All the staff at Bay Tree House wish them all the very best for their future.
Celebrating the Diversity within our Nursery
Throughout April we will continue looking at Iceland as our country of interest. The children are learning about the currency used, traditional stories, what colours are in their flag, different foods that are popular from there and interesting facts about Iceland. If you are interested in providing any information or would like to come in and cook to help us make this really interesting for the children please speak to your child’s keyworker.
Theme of the month
In April the baby rooms theme is ‘Spring’ and Blue, Red and Yellow rooms are looking at ‘The water cycle’ We will also be celebrating Easter.

We are still collecting the Active Kids Vouchers and really rely on the support of all our parents.

We are hoping to match that amount again this year so please continue with your much appreciated support.
General House keeping
A reminder to all parents that if you leave your pushchairs in the buggy shed they need to be folded down. If any are left open they will be removed from the shed and left on the drive. We are also noticing that scooters/bikes and other ride on toys are also being left and ask that you avoid bringing these to nursery. If any are found in the shed we will put them in the garden for the children to use.
The weather is very changeable at the moment but this should not stop your child from having fun playing outdoors. Can you please make sure they have the appropriate outdoor clothing for this time of year and also check that your child’s blue bag contains winter spare clothes and that they have a pair of wellingtons that can be left at nursery.
Everyone is looking forward to Easter and we will be holding our Easter Egg hunt on Thursday 13th April. We will be closed on Friday 14th, Sunday 16th and Monday 17th of April for the Easter holidays. Bay Tree House would like to wish you all a very happy Easter.
We wish you all a very happy birthday!
