This month we will be looking at all things American…Cultures, traditions, sight seeing and what kinds of weather they experience. We will be creating some flags, statues of Liberty, looking at how tall the buildings are, how long their bridges are and lots lots more, so keep an eye out for all their creations throughout the month.


As you know our big hairy goal for 2017 is to improve the QUALITY of our provision to children, ensuring they have the BEST education and care in a safe (and fun) learning environment.

GREAT NEWS…..We have just received the ISO 9001 certification, a world-class quality assurance award. This is the most recognised quality management standard. It ensures that we are continually evaluating and reflecting on our provision and our nursery; the system supports us with maintaining a high standard of service and ensures that we comply with many regulatory requirements.

Well done everyone – this is another example of fantastic team work at Monkey Puzzle Weybridge xx

FIRST AID…where we share tips and advice from St Johns Ambulance with parents

This week we are focusing on:

Fever in babies

1If your baby has a fever or high temperature it can be very worrying. Fever can be common in babies and most recover without any problems. You may notice they are hot with flushed skin but may become cold to the touch, with pale skin.
If their temperature is above 37ºC your baby has a fever.
A temperature above 38ºC is unusual in a young baby under 3 months, so seek advice quickly.


Kayleigh from Teenies will be moving over to Babies as of W/C 8th May 2017. She will be transitioning from Tuesday next week and will be getting to know her new key children in Babies.
Hannah will be taking over Kayleigh’s key children in Teenies.
