Dear Parents and Carers,
Thank you for all your help and support during a bumpy start to the new year and term. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the team for keeping the preschool open so the children could have fun especially in the snow!
Although COVID doesn’t allow much face to face interaction please know I or another team member is always on the end of the phone or email to help and support in any way we can.
The second iPad has now been purchased with the money raised by the Christmas shop and we plan on trialing a new online system for the children's learning journeys and observations after Easter.
Time to look forward to a new half term and welcome Tyler who will be joining us after the break. Parent consultations will be taking part in the next half term. For the first time we are hoping to do this by phone call with your child's key worker. Appointments will be during lunch club, each key group will receive a letter with more details in the new term.
Stay safe, stay well

We have an amazing garden which we use all year round, Please dress your children accordingly
Lunch boxes should be a healthy balanced meal and easy to open for your children. Please also remember we are a
nut-free/ no peanut butter preschool.
We will continue to use two queues and entrance and exits points A and B, please can I remind you to wear a face covering and keep your distance when waiting at the preschool.
Hand gel and antibacterial spray will be available to use. Please ensure this is done before your child enters the setting.
Temperatures will still be taken at the door and enhanced room cleaning is in place.
COVID secure measures mean we need to keep the room well ventilated with windows open at all times. Please keep this in mind as the room is cooler than usual. Please ensure your child is dressed in layers.
If a member of your household is isolating it is the pre-school policy for the children to remain at home for the required time as well.
I also ask you to keep me informed of any tests within your bubble.
Thank you for helping us to keep children and staff as safe as possible.
