Nursery schools nationwide are facing an uncertain future with government funding being reduced.  Over recent months concerned parents from the five Slough nurseries have been signing a petition to present to Parliament.  Our local MP Tan Dhesi was on hand to receive over 1600 signatures which he will deliver to Westminster, to add to the countrywide petitions, on 5th February.  Please click on the link below for further information.

On the 5th December 2018 we had a visit from our local traffic police officer and our police community support officer who talked to the children about road safety.  Each child received a certificate for taking part.  They were also given a sheet to take home and colour in as a competition.  A winner will be selected from each group.

We had a good response to our Road Safety Week colouring competition.  Winners were chosen by PCSO Poppie Bailey and each received a set of colouring pencils.  Thank you to all children who entered the competition.

Cippenham Nursery has been awarded the Slough Healthy Smiles Silver Award.  This is in recognition for promoting a healthy lifestyle through curriculum activities, offering children healthy snacks and drinks and encouraging healthy lunch boxes.  Also encouraging parents to offer stickers to children for birthdays instead of sweets.

To promote oral hygiene and support speech development, we have organised a visit from the Dummy & Bottle Fairy to give parents the opportunity to wean their children off their bottle/dummy.  Certificates are handed to those children who hand them to the Fairy.

We have leaflets and information available for parents to support them in making healthy choices.

On 21st November the Bottle & Dummy Fairy paid a visit to our Nursery and collected lots of bottles and dummies from those children who agreed to give them up.  They each received a certificate.  We also had a visit from Karen Gonzalez, the Borough's Oral Health Improvement Practitioner, for staff training on oral health and supervised brushing.
