Summer Term (1st Half)

Tuesday 23rd April to Friday 24th May 2019

Dear parents/carers,

Welcome back after the Easter holiday, we trust you all had a relaxing break. The children really enjoyed taking part in the sponsored egg hunt which we held at the end of last term, please remember to hand in any remaining sponsorship money. We have raised £198 so far which will go towards revamping the book corner.

From this term we are introducing a snack fee of £1 per week in order to cover increased costs of perishable goods; you will see this charge on your fees letter. 

Important upcoming dates (see also the dates at the bottom of this newsletter)                                    We shall be holding a parents evening in May, the date will be confirmed in due course. This will be an opportunity for you to meet with your child’s key worker and discuss your child’s progress  and any concerns that you may have.                                                                                                                    Road safety week – we will be inviting the children to bring their scooters/bikes in during this term – dates to be advised.

Policies and procedures – please do not forget to look at and sign the policy of the week. This will help you to understand the policies and procedures that we follow in the setting.

Contact Details – can you let us know if there have been any changes in your contact details so that we can update your child’s information record.

Sun Safety – please can you remember to apply a HIGH SPF FACTOR suncream to your child in the morning (preferably an all day cream) before they come to preschool and to provide a sun hat (named) for your child. We will have our own suncream station situated in the corridor too where you can use our own lotion to apply to your child.

Car parking – In the interest of safety can you please use the car park opposite the Village Hall when dropping off or collecting your child/ren. It can get very congested and difficult to see oncoming traffic if parents park right in front of the Village Hall.
