August was a big transition month. We had lots of children leaving for school and new children starting, as well as current children settling in to their new room. We want to welcome all new children and families who has joined Zeeba and who will be joining this month.


A big happy birthday to all our friends and Ms Tegan (21st) who celebrate their birthdays this month. Zeeba also celebrates 8 years since opening!


Please find attached our calendar for the next term (4 September – 22 December).

For September, we have the following coming up:

1st – Happy Eid al-Adha!

8th – International Literacy Day: Read your child’s favourite story to them or visit the library. Please take a photo and upload it to Tapestry with a short comment. Please ask a member of the management to support you if you need help.

18th September – 23rd October – Autumn Next Steps 1: look out for your Tapestry observations

22nd- Walk to Zeeba day: We want to encourage everyone to walk (or cycle) to Nursery today.


Congratulations to Ms Rabi who has been at Zeeba for 2 years, and Ms Izette who has been at Zeeba for 8 years.
