October 2021 News Letter

There's always something exciting going on at Happy House Preschool Clayton-le-Woods.


Dear All

Hope you are all well. It is amazing that we are already fast approaching Halloween and in the lead up to Halloween night on Sunday we will be inviting the children to come in their favourite dressing up all next week.

Nursery News

All early year providers will be expected to work within the new updated Early Years Foundation stage at the start of the new Academic year.

The focus of the updated framework concentrates on children’s spoken language  “ as this underpins all seven areas of learning and development.” Their personal, social and emotional development which is achieved through strong and supportive relationships with the adults in their life helping them to understand theirs and others feelings is “crucial for children to lead healthy and happy lives, and is fundamental to their cognitive development.” and Physical Development which is vital to their all-round development  “enabling them to pursue happy, healthy and active lives”.

Our methods of teaching and activities will encompass the philosophies of this document

Over the next term up to Christmas we will be helping the children to use a wider range of vocabulary:

  • By explaining unfamiliar words and concepts and making sure children have understood what they mean through stories and other activities.
  • Provide children with a rich language environment by sharing books and activities with them. Encourage the children to talk about what is happening and give us their own ideas.

Become more confident to develop a conversation with others and adults:

  • By replying to what they say or try to say and use the words they have mispronounced, modelling them correctly
  • Listen patiently. Do not say the words for them
  • Take time and ‘tune in’ to the messages they are giving us through their vocalisations, body language and gesture

Future dates

Friday the 19th November is Children in Need Day and I have a supply of Girls and boys Pudsey headband ears and also wrist bands, which we will be selling from Monday so please bring your pennies and support this wonderful charity event. 

We will be closing on the 22nd of December for Christmas and on the 23rd of December we will be having our Christmas party all the children are invited and more information will follow,


As Covid-19 infection rates are still predominantly high could we please ask all parents to ensure that they continue to wear masks when they enter the building, It, is not just a nursery requirement, but it is also a requirement of the centre.
