May 2021 Newsletter

monthly newsletter

Welcome to our May newsletter, I hope it finds you all well and enjoying the sunshine.

Some big changes have happened over the last few weeks including new flooring in the Pre- School, a new Kiddybus for the children to get out and about, a new camera identification entry system and some new sleeping pods.

We are yet to create our Pushchair bay outside the Nursery and are looking forward to having some lovely new windows in Pre-School. We hope that you like the new additions and changes.

We are placing a big emphasis on toilet training, healthy eating and independence throughout the Nursery. We have gathered and collated information on how best to support our families from various professionals including our local health team. There are flyers and information booklets in and around nursery so please feel free to ask for one. If you feel that you need support with this, we are more than happy to provide this. Last year it was planned to have an informal social evening with Debbie Richards from Bladder and Bowel NHS. However, Covid interrupted this, I would be interested to know if any families would like me to try and organise this again? I would be happy to do face to face with covid measures in place but we could also look at virtual?

We are part of the Oral Health programme, which again has been delayed due to covid and as part of infection control decided to postpone! That will be due to start again after May half term, please look out for your home kits and make sure you re-sign a new consent form!

Key Person
It’s handy for you to know who your Child’s Key Person is, this can be done by logging on to your Famly account and selecting the ‘about’ tab. ¾ of the way down the page, the key person for your child will be listed. Your Childs Key Person will change when they move rooms or staff relocate to another part of the nursery. They are responsible for monitoring your Child’s learning and development, they are approachable at all times should you wish to have a discussion! I hope this helps!

Financial support
I’ve been asked several times lately, how can parents access financial support.
The following links may be of some help, please always talk to us if you are struggling. We more often than not can at least point you in the right direction for some assistance! It also helps to discuss worries. These conversations will always be kept in the strictest confidence.
