News from your nursery this Autumn

Dear Parents/Carers

The summer is almost over, yet all we have seen lately is rain, rain and more rain!!! However, be assured that at Sunny Days Weymouth we always have a smile for you, which hopefully makes you feel ‘sunny’ inside!!


Sat 12th Sept is our OPEN DAY!! Come along with your friends and family and join in the fun!! There will be a grand raffle, singing signing and playing, refreshments … and so much more fun!! Book the date and join in!!

Fri 18th Sept is Jeans for Genes day – it would be lovely to see as many staff, parents and children wearing jeans on this date and your donations will be most gratefully received for this very worthwhile cause and charity who helps children with genetic disorders.


From Tues 8th Sept we invite parents/carers with their babies from 3 months to 1 year to a new baby group run by Janet or Christine, and Verina will come along to sing with us. Only £1 for refreshments. Please let all your friends with babies know about this new group. A friendly supportive group for parents/carers/babies every Tuesday 10-11:30am at Sunny Days Weymouth.

Staff Updates – Building Our Team for 2015/2016

Sadly, Grace Armstrong became poorly and made the difficult decision to resign her post to look after herself, and we wish her well for the future.

Holly Darch our new fully qualified nursery nurse is now with us, she has quickly settled in really well, and she is an absolute asset to our nursery.


You all know that a decision had to be made at both the Bridport and Weymouth Sunny Days that we will no longer be offering a hot lunch option from October. This decision has not been an easy one, and equally, it is not written in stone! More of you need to want the hot meal option for it to be viable. Let Janet or Kate know if you want us to re-consider, then in the spring we will reassess and employ our very own cook!! In the interim your child will need a HEALTHY LUNCHBOX … fizzy drinks, sweets, chocolate will be returned to you!!
