Paper and Card

We always need paper and card. Do you know of any suppliers who would be willing to donate some to us? 



 

Photocopying

Do you have any contacts that would be willing to do some photocopying for us?    

 

Suggestion box.

This box will be placed in the main corridor near the entrance door.

We would welcome all suggestions so that we continue to improve and have feedback from you positive or negative

 

Contact Numbers. / Email addresses

Please let us know if you change any of your contact numbers or email address. It is vital that these numbers are kept up to date in case we need to contact you while your child is in our care.    

In the event that we have to close nursery, or you suspect we might be (normally due to adverse weather conditions) please refer to our website

 

Child safety.

Please always be alert when you are in or around the nursery. Also be very wary of cars and others when playing in the car park. The children are your responsibility until they have passed within the inner doors of nursery leading to the hall itself, and should not be left alone in the corridor outside the toilets, as this is normally a very busy area.

 

Website

Please take time to visit our website as we have updated our Policy & Procedures file with a hardcopy available should you want one.

The biggest change will be, reference’s to the GPDR and the impacts of its introduction.

Open day – 4th December

This is on Tuesday the 4th December and provides the opportunity for parents to talk to their child’s key person to see how they are progressing and to look around the nursery. The times the children will be singing to be confirmed.

Tea, coffee and cakes will be served and a raffle will take place.

Christmas jumpers, or clothing to be worn

 

Macmillan coffee morning, Monday 24th September

For the second time, we will be supporting the Macmillan fundraising for cancer coffee morning. We will be selling tea, coffee and cakes with all proceeds going to the charity. Any donations for biscuits would be very much appreciated as all funds raised go to the charity.

We do hope that we can get a good turnout and will be from 10.00 to 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. Again this will be a great opportunity to meet up with the staff to see how your child is progressing.

If it not your child session you are still more than welcome to come along.

 

Questionnaires.

Questionnaires will be given out at the end of term, please could you complete them as these help us to plan forwards and respond accordingly.
 

Junk modelling.

For the first week of term only, we would very much welcome any recycle boxes, bottles or anything else suitable for junk modelling to be brought in please.

 

Peppa Pig experience

As this was very popular last term we will be repeating it but are awaiting dates and prices. This will be advised to parents nearer the beginning of term.

 

Book Bags

Are available to buy for £6. This makes it easier for children to carry out their work and paintings. It also ensures that letters get to you rather that lost in transition

 

Consent forms.

Please make sure that on hot days your child has sun cream applied and brings in a hat but make sure your child’s name is clearly marked inside it.

In order for us to apply sun cream we do require our consent form that covers a wide range of topics including medical, signed and with us at the start of term.

 

Dogs & smoking policy - Disabilty

Can you please ensure dogs are not brought onto the nursery’s premises and we operate a non-smoking area both in the car park and hall.

Please be mindful of not parking in the disabled parking bay as we do have some children with us who have special needs.

Whilst we appreciate the issues of parking, please do not double park in the main car park as it is disrespectful to others.

 

Book Club

The book club have now gone back to giving out leaflets, which will be given to every child but you can still order on line. A reminder that the link which is below.

Lost property.

We always display lost property items and any property that has not been claimed at the end of the term will either be given to charity or destroyed.

To reduce these please ensure that your children’s clothing have labels with their name on clearly displayed.
