September Newsletter

From Tuesday 1st September, we will reopen our Walker Room and fully be operational once again.  We are also excited to be welcoming four new members of staff to our team. We will introduce them to you either face to face or via our facebook page over the course of the next week or so.

 

Walker Room Children

If your child has a planned move to the Walker Room on Tuesday 1 September, your child’s key worker will have informed you.  Your drop off and collection point is at the main entrance. To contact a member of staff you should select option 2.

Staffing remains largely unchanged, with the exception that Kym will now take over the role of Toddler Room Leader.

‘Thank you’

This week we have sadly said ‘goodbye’ to the majority of our Rising 5 children as they leave us to start school.  On behalf of all of the staff, ‘Thank you!’ so much for all of the chocolate, wine, flowers and other gifts that parents have brought us as a token of their appreciation.  We will miss you all and we wish them the very best of luck as they start their new adventure. Please pop back and come and see us in your uniform.

 

Funding for next Term

If your child turns 2 or 3 before 31st December 2020 you may be eligible for free funded hours.  To check your eligibility, visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk.  If you do intend to take up your funded hours with us from January please get in touch with either Paul or I so that we can assist you with your application.

 

Christmas Opening

I have already had a few enquiries regarding our opening over the festive period.  We will close at 18:00 on Tuesday 22nd December and then reopen at 07:00 on Monday 4th January 2021.  These dates are based upon closure of 5 working days (hence the 51 week charging structure), plus the bank holidays.  These dates will change year-on-year due the way that the bank holidays fall.
