Dear Parents and Carers,
The team and I would like to wish you all a very happy Easter and we hope the children enjoyed the surprise of the Easter Bunny and the egg hunt on Thursday 1st April.
A big thank you to our Easter Bunny, we appreciate your support!
The last day of term saw Caroline leave us to start a new adventure. We are very sad to see her go but wish her all the best for the future. She passes on her thanks for your kind gifts and well wishes.
Time to look forward to a new half term as we welcome 3 new children who will be joining us after the Easter break.
We also have a new team member, Mrs. Sonya Lane, who brings a wealth of experience. Look out for her Dojo welcome soon.
The new rainbow system to promote positive behaviour is now in place. The children are responding well to it and trying hard to reach the happy sun!
Can I draw your attention to the term dates and remind you that the pre-school will be shut for bank holidays and also polling day on Thursday 6th May.
Although COVID doesn't allow much face to face interaction, please know that I, or any team member, is always on the end of the phone (or email) to help and support you in any way we can.
With best wishes,
Georgina and the staff team

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. The team now has a list of which side your child should be entering on and will ask you to join the back of the other queue if you are on the wrong side. This is to comply with social distancing and to keep adults and children safe.
Please can I remind you to wear a face covering and keep your distance when waiting at pre-school. This also means ensuring that your children stay with you whilst waiting in the line.
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.
