Sad news and cards....

Well I had the sad news yesterday that my son's nursery is shutting down. The last day was today (yes I know total shock for everyone, including staff) so I now have to find him somewhere else to go. He has been there since he was 5 months and was really excited as he'd just moved up to their pre-school. I'm totally gutted for him and I know all the staff have taken it badly. It was a very emotional day for everyone.
Anyway I spent last night, taking my mind off the big issue at hand, by making individual thank you cards for all the staff. Thankfully its a small nursery so only 10 staff, but here's my cards:

All the staff have been so brilliant and my son loves them dearly, I know he will miss the staff and kids so much.

These are wonderful! So sorry to hear about the nursery closing. It's tough when you lose your childcare suddenly. We experienced as well back when our kids were little. Much luck in finding a new one.

You've made wonderful cards Toni, I'm sure each and every will will be greatly appreciated

I am a teacher for a Pre-K class and I have only received 3 handmade cards in the 11 years I have been teaching- and I have them hung in my classroom... You did a great thing, the teachers will know that you have really appreciated them!
