Nursery New Parents

Welcome to the area of our website dedicated to our new Nursery parents. We hope you will find everything you need here, and will also keep adding to this page with useful information.

The Nursery Team are really looking forward to talking to our new parents who have children due to start in September. Over the next couple of weeks we will be making calls to every parent to ensure everyone has the information that they need. If you have questions in the mean time than please get in touch with us and we will do our best to help you.

Best wishes from The Nursery Team!

New starter parent letter 2021

For children due to start our nursery in September 2021, we will be hosting a zoom presentation on the evening of Thursday 24th June 2021. Here you will learn about how things work in Holly Nursery, important information such as uniform and procedures, and a flavour of the curriculum and how your child will be learning. You will be given the opportunity to ask the teachers any questions you may have.


If you haven't already, you will soon receive a letter welcoming you to the school which will give you the zoom link for the meeting as well as dates for telephone calls and how the transition process will work in September.


The Powerpoint used during the meeting will be added to this page, after 24th June, so you can revisit it and use it to enhance any discussions you have with your child prior to starting Holly Nursery.

Here is a handbook which we hope will give you some useful information about Holly Nursery. If you still have questions that you would like to ask then please contact the school office, via email, a member of the nursery team will contact you.

This is a really useful checklist of activities to practice with your child before they start Nursery.


We are really excited to meet you, the parents, and especially your child. We'd love to learn about your child and begin to understand about their likes/dislikes and interests. Quite often this can steer our planning and determine where we are taking our learning journey next.  It would be a great start if you could download and print a copy of the All About Me poster, then complete it with your child. If you haven't got access to a printer then there will be copies available to collect from our school office. These will be available after 24th June. Please bring the completed poster to your child's first visit to Holly Nursery. As a nursery team it is our aim to make the transition into starting nursery as smooth, easy and enjoyable as possible. We are really looking forward to welcoming your precious little one into our caring, happy, hands on learning environment.
