Parents are warmly invited to nursery events, which are held throughout the year.
In the Autumn Term these include a Harvest Festival, Christmas Parties [parents accompany the babies and toddlers] and a Nativity Play and Carol Service.
Spring Term offers Spring Concerts and Easter Parties, and during the Summer Term we hold Sports Days, Garden Parties and a special Leaver’s Celebration Party.
Parents are invited to our Parent Liaison Meetings, occasional Information Evenings and to make an appointment to discuss their child’s welfare and progress at our Annual Parents Consultation Evenings.
We regularly welcome visitors into the nursery, who are often also our parents, to share their occupations, skills, talents and interests with the children and are very grateful for the valuable contribution they make to the life of the nursery school.

KINDERGARTEN PARENTS CURRICULUM INFORMATION EVENING
Many of our Parents express an interest in the ways in which we teach Phonics and Mathematics at this age, particularly in relation to preparation for school. We therefore hope to host an Information Evening for our Kindergarten Parents, to enable them to better understand the processes and to give them ideas of how they can help at home.
TIME, VENUE AND TIME T.B.C.
You will receive an invitation via ParentZone with details about your child’s Easter Party, which will be hosted at Upton Bishop Village Hall.
