 Can't thank you all enough for giving L an amazing, wonderful nursery school experience. She has thrived so much and will really miss you all  ( and T too, lol !)


 Thank You......

For all your patience day to day 

For every fear you chase away

For little hands you gently hold

For all the stories you have told

For all the fun songs and quiet times

For messy play and nursery rhymes

For teaching me how to help and share

For being kind and being fair

For helping me smile and grow.

It's off to P1 go!


Lots of Love and Hugs, L
