NEWS AND INFORMATION

WELCOME

Welcome to all new starters and those returning.   We know that this can be a difficult time for parents and children.  For some of you, this will be the first period of separation on a regular basis.  The staff team are very experienced and caring and will provide lots of reassurance and comfort to your children.

 

We will do everything possible to ensure that this transition is a happy one for you and your child.  Please feel free to telephone (07979553472) during the session to check on your child and if you have any concerns please see Ceri or any member of the staff team.

 

LEAVERS

If your child is leaving before or in July 2018 please let Ceri know as soon as possible so that the place can be allocated to a child on the waiting list.  Thank you.

 

SUMMER SCHEME

Thanks to everyone who has returned their forms.  I can confirm that you are all allocted the days you have requested.  The scheme will run on Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday 9.15am - 12.00noon for the first two weeks of the summer holiday'; we wil be providing lots of fun activities.  Usual fees apply and are payable in advance by the 6th July 2018.  There are a few places left on Wednesday of both weeks. To book a place, please see Ceri asap.

 

GARDEN

Work has taken place on the garden during the Easter holidays and the children will be growing a mixture of vegetables and flowers during the next term.

 

SEPTEMBER FEES

Fees from September 2018 will be £12.00 per morning.  Thank you to everybody who has made the transition to paying by bank transfer.  From September 2018, all payments are to be made by childcare vouchers or bank transfers.

 

HEALTH AND SAFETY

Please leave prams in the foyer at the start of the morning rather than bring them in to the main hall at the start of the session.  Doing so prevents children being able to leave the main hall and prevents accidents.

If you are the last to leave, please tell a member of staff who will lock the entrance door behind you.

 

VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES

Can you spare a few hours per term to assist in escorting children out into the local community?  Do you have a special interest, skill or knowledge that can be shared with children to enhance their learning?  Please see Ceri if you would like to get involved.
