1 Information   about the Home Link toys, the Lending Library and the Number Packs will be   given to parents when their child starts Nursery.
2 Each child   will be given opportunities throughout the year of taking home the mascot toy   for their group – a lion, tiger or bear.    Inside the backpack there is an information leaflet and a   notebook.  Parents/carers are   encouraged to write a few sentences about toy’s visit.  This information is shared with other   children in the group during the Nursery session.
3 Children   will be encouraged to regularly choose a book to take home from the Nursery   Library.  A comment sheet in the   library folder provides an opportunity for feedback from parents/carers and   the child to Nursery staff.  The   children will also have regular opportunities to choose a Number Pack   containing a game to play at home.
