Sparsholt March Newsletter 2017
As I write this storm Doris has finally left us…
February has literally blown away so rapidly alongside the storm. Our theme throughout February has been people who help us and we were treated to Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service coming to Sparsholt and Ietting all the children drive the fire engine, spray water from the hose and learn all about the job of a being a fire fighter.
March is the month with lots of events in this year! We start with World Book Day on the Thursday 2rd March. Please dress your child up as their favourite book character and bring in their favourite story for us all to enjoy.
This year we are combining Red Nose Day and our Mothers Day tea Party on Friday 24th March at 2.30pm. We would like you to get sponsors (all the money going to charity) and then take part in our mini mudder event on the field. The mums will be competing against the staff… Good luck! Afterwards you will all be rewarded with tea and cakes.
We now have on sale sweatshirts for a bargain price of £10.50. The sweatshirts come in sizes 3-4 and 5-6 and replace the deckshirt. T-shirts are available to purchase now ready for the summer. I would like to remind you all that uniform is mandatory for over 2’s, if your child repeatedly does not wear the Farley uniform, then we will put a sweatshirt or t-shirt on your child and the cost will be added to your invoice.
Sadly, we say goodbye to Sarah in Top Conker who is off for a new adventure, but we welcome Chantelle to join the Top Conker team at the end of March. We have also welcomed Ed to the team as bank staff, Ed has mainly been working with our older children so please say hello to him!
We have now started taking bookings for Farley Rangers for the summer holidays. Rangers will be running for 4 weeks, 31st July, 7th August 14th August and the 21st August. We have limited availability for the Rangers as we are still busy as a nursery, priority will go to children with siblings already at Farley, but it is a first come first serve basis.
It's the time of year, when spring is just around the corner, that we review our fee structure at the nursery. We would like to draw your attention to a small increase in fees which will come into effect on the 1st April 2017. You will all receive an email with the fee increase, it will also be attached to your next invoice.
CHANGE OF DATES- please note that we have had to change our sports day... it is now WEDNESDAY 12TH JULY AT 3PM.
We have a brand new and exciting event for you to add to this years calendar… a celebration day! Friday 21st July is an opportunity to celebrate the children of Farley, before our Top Conkers leave and head off to school. Celebration day will begin at 1pm, where you can bring a picnic in to share with your child. This will be followed by Kaya drumming at 2pm, Alex and his drumming team will lead everyone in stories and singing. This event is open to all children and parents and will finish at 4pm.
Have a wonderful March everyone!
Lisa and the team at Sparsholt
