News Letter April / May 2019

Dear parents,

Firstly, we would like to apologise for any convenience caused due to the recent suspension which led to the setting being closed temporarily. A big thank you to all parents whom have been patient and supportive by emails and phone calls though this difficult time. The management team understands that this suspension has also made it difficult for working parents/carers whom have had to make alternative childcare arrangements.

During the closure the staff have been extremely busy, they took part in a first aid training course, started to develop the gardens and the rooms have been refreshed and rearranged to ensure the children are received the most out of their learning environment. Please take the time to look at the hard work that has been continued over the last few weeks.

Next, we would also like to welcome Nicole, Daniella and Chelsey to our team. The newest staff members have settled well into the nursery and all bring new, fresh ideas that will be implemented in the coming weeks.

The children who have started back at the nursery are continuing their Spring activities as well as preparing for Easter. In May, the children will be planting seeds visiting the local park and learning about farm animals. We have lots of events coming up so please remember to check the dates in the ‘Upcoming events’ section.

We have recently been made aware that there are some families who are eligible for the Early years pupil premium (EYPP) This is for families who have a low income, adopted children or looked after children. If you think you this may apply to you, please speak to someone from the management team.

Going forward the nursery will be moving over to ‘Tapestry’ to upload the children’s learning journals. This is an online system that will be accessible by parents, you will be able to access your child account and view the observations, photos, videos and progress reports as well as leave comments and add your own observations. We have a permission form that needs to be completed to enable us to add you to the system so if you have not yet received one please speak to a member of the management team.

An audit has been done on all the children’s files and we have noticed that some information is not up to date, therefore we are asking all parents to complete a new registration form to ensure we have the correct details. Again, if you have not yet received a new form please speak o a member of the management team.

Lastly, the nursery has recently decided to set up a social media account (Facebook/Instagram) for all parents/families or potential families to keep up to date with any events/news or see photos of the activities that have been taking place. If you have not yet received a permission slip for this, please speak to a member of the management team.
