New Term Information and Notices!

Firstly, as the summer holidays draw to a close, and we enter the Autumn term, we’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has joined us for the summer holiday club over the last six weeks.  We’ve had some fantastic days out with your children, plenty of fun and some great memories made!


Our nursery managers, Fran, Tracy and Emma and their teams, are all looking forward to welcoming our new starters.  The new Autumn term starts on Monday 3rd September. We’ve lots of fun (and educational), activities planned for the new term.  A typical day at Cuddles includes lots of indoor and outdoor play – we are out in all weathers – and, most importantly, lots of fun as children learn best whilst playing!


For parents and carers who have children starting big school this September, a little reminder that we will drop off and collect your children from the following schools. Please contact the admin team at your child’s nursery to confirm when you would like your child dropped off or collected from school.  You can also check our breakfast school arrangement.

New Starters Notice:


Children starting with us in September will need a lunch box for the morning sessions at Canford Heath and Parkstone unless you have pre-ordered a hot meal. For Poole Stadium children, they will need a lunchbox if they are attending the afternoon session. Please also send a bag with a change of clothes, a hat for warmer weather, suitable outdoor clothing and a comforter (if your child needs this).  We provide nappies, wipes, sun cream, breakfast, morning and afternoon snacks.

Learning Book:

Your child’s progress is recorded in their dedicated Learning Book.  

Learning Book is a complete digital solution for learning journeys where Cuddles can record, analyse and share information on your child’s progress.

We recommend that parents and carers look at their child’s learning book on a regular basis. Remember you can also add your own comments and photos to make it really specific for your own family.  Celebrating milestones and special occasions.
