Nursery News April 2019

Nursery Security

We have had a few incidences recently where unfamiliar people (ie delivery drivers or people enquiring about the nursery) have been allowed into the building by parents. Can we please remind parents to not let anyone in the building that they do not recognise and please ask them to wait at the door until a member of staff is alerted. Thank you.

Parent Breakfast

Thank you to all the parents who attended the parent breakfast. It was lovely to see everyone have a chance to socialise with each other, as well as being able to have a bite to eat and a small play with their children and their friends. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Buggy Storage

Unfortunately we have limited spaces for buggies to be stored. We have a buggy rail in the front foyer for “umbrella” style buggies that can be folded and hung up using their handles; this then leaves the buggy hut free for buggies that can’t be hung up. We would also like to ask that any parents using children’s seats on the back of their bike please do not leave them in the buggy shed as they take up space that is needed otherwise.

Self-Evaluation

We have recently sent out parent and child questionnaires for the purposes of our Standards and Quality Improvement Plan. All of your comments will be taken on board and are an essential part of us evaluating our practice and Nursery as a whole. We look forward to hearing your feedback.

Weather

Now that the weather is looking up, we please ask that parents bring their children to nursery with a sun hat that is labelled with their name. We will be asking parents to sign/re-sign nursery sun cream forms, or alternatively asking for your child’s own sun cream to be kept at nursery. It would also be helpful to have some extra clothes at nursery for your child as we are planning some fantastic water play experiences for the children!

Staffing

We are very sorry to be saying goodbye to Colette at the end of the month. Colette has been a key member on the Ground Floor and we would like to thank her for all of the hard work she has put into the nursery.
