Autumn Term (1st Half)

Tuesday 5th September to Friday 20th October 2017

Dear parents/carers,

Welcome back after the summer holidays, we trust you all had a relaxing break and enjoyed the weather. This term brings the arrival of some new children and we extend a warm welcome to them and their parents/carers. Each week a new policy is added to the notice board in the corridor for you to read and sign. We would appreciate you spending a couple of minutes reading this as it helps us on our annual review of policies, whilst also ensuring that you are aware of the policies and procedures within the setting.

Due to increased costs we have had to put our fees up to £4.70 per hour for all ages. This increase ensures that we still have a high ratio of staff and that we can provide an excellent level of service. 

In the interest of safety can you please use the car park opposite 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. May we remind you we have a ‘no dogs policy’ on the premises; please refrain from bringing your dogs to playschool and tying them up as some of our children have phobias about dogs.

This term one of our topic boards will be displaying photos of what the children did during the summer holidays, so please can you please provide a picture or a postcard which can be used for the display.

The committee meeting for this term will be held on Tuesday 26th September at 7.30pm at the Rising Sun, come along if you are interested in joining the committee.

Our next fundraising event will be the Pumpkin Ball on Friday 20th October at 4.30 – 6pm, please put this date in your diaries now (tickets will be on sale nearer the time). Entertainment will be provided by Tomfoolery and the children will have a chance to dress up in their Halloween costumes and dance to their favourite tunes, There will also be several side stalls and games to play. Hot food will be available to purchase as well as soft drinks and cakes.

Please try to send your child to playgroup in appropriate labelled clothing, remembering that we DO go outside in ALL WEATHERS, You need to provide waterproof clothing and wellington boots.

We welcome parent helpers anytime – come and join the fun!

Best regards
Mia & Chantael -Supervisors
