Dear Parents

We hope you have had a great couple of months, particularly as the weather is picking up and outdoor activities become all the more enjoyable.

I trust also that everyone has settled into daylight saving - sometimes I think the children cope better than the adults!

Please remind your nanny that the Rogan Nanny Christmas Party invitations are well and truly out now. Numbers are limited due to venue size based on past attendances so nannies need to RSVP as soon as possible. 

Take care
Kind regards

Julie Morrison

Nanny Christmas Party
This year's Rogan nanny Christmas party will be held on Friday 27 November from 7.00 - 10.00pm. All nannies are invited to attend and please encourage your nanny to RSVP soon as possible. Places are capped according to the venue and based on past attendances. If you are able to ensure your nanny gets away on time, or possibly a little earlier, on this Friday, that would be wonderful. Nannies can advise attendance to Rose:  We will be collecting children's books again to present as a Christmas gift to a local charity - if families would also like to donate a book please send it along with your nanny on the 27th (no need to wrap as we categorise by age). Thank you!
