Dear Parent/ Guardians,
Welcome back to Bambino Nursery School our dear parents and learners. Special welcome to our new parents and thank you for the right choice you have made to join the Bambino family. Newsletters of this kind constitute the main form of communication from school to parents. It is advisable that they are read carefully because they contain very important information. We also encourage direct contact between the class teacher and a parent. We hope to have the usual support from all of you parents as it has been the case before.

Learners arriving after the stated time will have to be escorted to the class by the adult bringing them. We hope to have the usual support from you parents.
Reception and middle class will be given homework as soon as they have settled down and are familiar with what they are doing. This should remain with your child throughout the year and will act as the first means of communication between home and school.
Home work will be sent three times a week, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please make sure this home work is returned the next day. If they scribble on other pages or tear the papers, you will be required to buy a new book, as
there will be no room.

Nursery School offers daycare which starts at 12:00 noon soon after classes and finishes at 4:45 pm. We recommend that all parents observe the knocking off time as late picking up will attract a penalty of K1, 000 paid on demand. The school provides a well-balanced diet.

|Nursery + Day care||220,000|

All new learners are expected to pay the full amount of school fees upon acceptance into the school. For returning students, the school encourages parents to pay all fees on or before the first day of the term. However, for those who might not have done so, please be advised that the grace period for the fees ends on 14th September 2018.
