NEWSLETTER MAY 2017
We would like to welcome all the new children who have joined us. We hope you all have lots of fun with all your new friends.
Firstly in the Tiggywinkles room we would like to welcome Quinn, Ava, Thomas and Peter. In the Benjamin Bunnies we welcome Ellie and into our Jeremy Fishers we have Louise and Oliver joining us shortly.
Please can we remind all parents and carers that we do not open the nursery until 8 am in the mornings, the staff are here before this time to allow the nursery to be set up ready for the day ahead. Likewise, if you are dropping off for the afternoon session at 1 p.m please take into account that we are unable to take your children earlier than this to allow the morning children to have been collected.
SICKNESS AND MEDICATION POLICY
Our sickness Policy
We would like to take this opportunity to refresh everyone on our sickness policy.
We follow the guidelines set out by the Health Protection Agency.
If your child has sickness or diarrhoea, we ask that you keep your children at home for 48 hours after the last incident to allow your child time to recover fully and to safeguard all the children at Nursery/Pre-School.
If your child is given anti-biotics again we ask that your child must have been taking them for 48 hours before coming back to the setting, this allows the anti-biotics to begin working so the children are well enough to be here.
Thank you for understanding with this.
The Nursery car park operates on a one way system, you enter at the far gates and exit via the gates next to the nursery. Please drive slowly and be mindful of other cars and any children/parents getting out of their cars. Please park safely and do not block the entrance/exit. If you are parking at the Pre-School, please use the designated spaces at the end of wheelers rise and be mindful not to block driveways.
If your child is old enough to walk, please can we remind you that you can also use the reading room Car Park and the layby’s to allow the Nursery Car Park to be used by those parents with children that need to be carried.
As the weather is finally starting to brighten up, could we ask that you bring in sun cream for your child to keep at nursery so we can apply as and when needed.
We have accumulated a few pieces of clothing/socks over the past month, we will place a box of lost property in the hallway for you to go through at drop off/collection times. Where possible can you please label all items to allow us to make sure they are returned to you.
PEOPLE WHO HELP US….
This month we are learning about people who help us. If any parents/carers would like to come into our pre-School to talk to our older children about their jobs please let us know. We would love you to come and share your knowledge with us.
