Summer Term (2nd Half)

Monday 7th June to Friday 23rd July 2021

Dear parents/carers,

Welcome back after the half term break.

It is positive to see how the nation’s journey out of lockdown is progressing. At this moment in time we will be keeping our Covid safety procedures in place for the remainder of this term.

If you have any COVID symptoms you must not enter the preschool!

POLICIES:

Each week a new policy is added to the notice board in the corridor for you to read. We would appreciate you spending a couple of minutes reading this as it helps us in our annual review of policies, whilst also ensuring that you are aware of policies and procedures within the setting.

PICK UP AND DROP OFF:

In the interest of safety, can you please use the car park opposite when dropping off or collecting your children. It can get very congested and difficult to see oncoming traffic if parents or carers park right in front of the village hall.

Please can I remind parents to come forward when collecting your child and their name is called, to avoid them running past you, falling over or struggling with their belongings.

FINANCIAL MATTERS:

Due to minimum wage rises and overhead increases the preschool fees are increasing to £5.75 per hour from September.

SNACK:

We understand the need to provide the children with a healthy balanced diet and have regular physical activity to support growth and development.

To ensure we can provide this, there is a voluntary donation of £1.20 per week and this covers the cost of the unlimited water from the water machine, all snacks, all celebration foods and resources for our termly baking and making activities.

We offer a balance and variety of snacks to provide a range of cultural and nutritious experiences for the children.

Foods to include but not limited to:

  • Carbohydrates: wraps, crumpets, pitta bread, scones, crackers, malt loaf, and mini sandwiches with various toppings (jam, honey, marmite, peanut butter, cheese).

  • Fruit/veg: Carrots, peppers, tomatoes, pineapple, kiwi, mango, apples, grapes, cucumber, strawberries, blueberries, oranges, plums, peaches, bananas.

  • Cultural celebration foods: Samosas, onion bhaji, spring rolls, noodles, lychees, prawn crackers, pancakes.

  • Children have a choice of milk or water

As a non profit charity it is vital you pay your fees on time.

Many thanks in advance.

SUN POTECTION:

As the weather is getting warmer and the highest risk to children is sun burn, we ask that you smother your child in ALL DAY suncream. Please provide a labelled sun hat.

Donations needed this term:

  • Sand

  • Baby wipes

  • Sticky tape

  • Compost

Please 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.

Kind Regards

Chantael –Supervisor
