    Warm Weather Alert!

    As the weather is getting warmer, please can i remind you to bring in sun cream and sun hats. The children love to go outside and we want to ensure that they are protected from the sun.

    Leavers

    We were sad to say farewell to Yoana who left to visit Bulgaria before she starts big school in September. It was a fabulous send off with more food and treats than the children could finish (and hugs and tears from a few). We wish Yoana all the best!

    This Week!

    This week we are pleased to welcome Dixita and Laura who are 15 year old work experience placements. Work experience is an invaluable opportunity for a young person to experience, probably for the first time, a working environment. Both Dixita and Laura will be with us until the end of the week – please do make them feel welcome.

    Happy Belated Birthday Henrikas!

    Graduation Party

    Our preschoolers will be having their graduation party on Wednesday 15th July. Please check your child’s diary this week for the invitation. The party will be extended to parents and family of our preschool class.

  • Many thanks to all the parents who made it to the father’s day/Special Person breakfast. it was lovely to see you all, and i hope it gave you an opportunity to meet and talk with each other.

    It has been a busy few weeks and the next few weeks promise to be even busier with the upcoming Summer Fair on Saturday 11th July and the Preschool Leavers party on Wednesday 15th July at 10am. The Leavers Party is open to friends and family of our current preschoolers (Lottie, Tomike, Henrikas, Tiya and Dhruv). Please do let us know how many people you intend to invite to enable us to manage the space. We would ask that you limit invitees to a maximum of 3 persons.

     

    Joiners and Leavers

    This month we were sad to say goodbye to Yoana who left us to holiday in Bulgaria before she starts reception in September. We wish her all the best for the future.

    We would like to welcome Leeanne Nurding who has joined us as an apprentice. Leanne has experience in childcare and is passionate about working with children.  Please do say hello when you see her in the nursery.

    Reminder to label all clothes

    As the weather is getting warmer, the children are changing out of their uniform more often. Please can you remember to label all your children’s clothes.

    Go Green

    We go through a lot of paper at the nursery and are hoping to help this waste of natural resources by changing the way we issue invoices. As of this month, you will only receive electronic copies of invoices so please ensure that our records for you are up to date. We will of course provide a hard copy, if requested, but hope that this will save some time and some trees.

    No Shoes Policy

    Over the past few weeks, we have trialled the no shoes policy and are incredibly happy with how it is going. There is still a bit of management to be done around putting on shoes before outside play but we are working to smoothen than process. please do let us know if you have any thoughts on the policy.

    End of Term – for funded children only

    Please note that the funded term ends on Thursday 23 July and will resume in September. If you would like your child to attend any sessions over the summer please speak to Kimberley.

     

     

  • Norovirus

    Please note that we have had several children with symptoms consistent of norovirus.

    Norovirus, sometimes known as the winter vomiting bug, is the most common stomach bug in the UK.
    The virus is highly contagious. It can affect people of all ages and causes vomiting and diarrhoea.
    There’s no specific cure for norovirus, so you have to let it run its course. It’s usually mild and shouldn’t last more than a couple of days.
    The period from when you’re infected to when you start to show symptoms (the incubation period) usually lasts between 12 and 48 hours. You may be infectious to other people during this time.
    Although having norovirus can be unpleasant, it’s not usually dangerous and most people make a full recovery within a couple of days without having to see their GP.

    Norovirus is easily spread. If an infected person doesn’t wash their hands before handling food, they can pass the virus on to others. You can also catch it by touching contaminated surfaces or objects.
    Follow the measures below to help prevent the virus spreading.
    wash your hands frequently
    don’t share towels and flannels
    disinfect surfaces that an infected person has touched
    Outbreaks of norovirus in public places, such as hospitals, nursing homes and schools, are common because the virus can survive for several days on surfaces or objects touched by an infected person.
    If you have norovirus, you may continue to be infectious for a short period after your symptoms stop.

    Children are not permitted to return to nursery for at least 48 hours after the symptoms disappear.
