Return to Nursery

We would like to thank you all for your continued support over the past few months. We appreciate that these have been challenging times for everyone.

Our phased re-opening of nursery is going well and the children are all settling back in. There have been many conversations about the changes that we have put in place to keep everyone as safe as possible, which the ladies are answering as honestly as they can.

Our Practitioners are all doing an amazing job of caring for the children and facilitating many opportunities for learning through play.

We continue to constantly evaluate our practice and make adaptions where we can with regular team meetings.

We will keep you updated as to when we will be able to increase our opening times and return to providing a cooked lunch for the children.

Sports Week

We will be hosting week of races for the Bumblebee children in the red and blue groups. The event will take place week commencing Monday 13th July. Further information to follow.

School Leavers

We are currently unable to meet with the School Teachers for Transition Meetings, instead we will be speaking to the Teachers over the telephone. Please be assured we will do all that we can to support the children as they prepare to start School in September. Please contact Nikki if you have any questions.

Graduation

At this moment in time we cannot proceed with our Bumblebee Graduation, an event that we usually invite all of the parents and children to in July.

We hope to be able to celebrate with our School Leavers by September. Further information to follow.

September Sessions

Please let us know if you would like to request any changes to your child’s sessions from September 2020 by either sending a message on Tapestry, by telephone or by emailing us.

August Holiday

Nursery will be closed for our annual summer holiday from Monday 24th August and we will re-open on Tuesday 1st September 2020. There will not be a charge for the time we are closed.

Staff Training

All of our staff team working with the children have up to date Paediatric First Aid, Food Hygiene and Safeguarding Certificates. We have also all recently completed an online ‘Prevent COVID-19’ training course.

Staff Update

As we continue to provide childcare to children in small groups at nursery the Practitioners looking after the children are:

Purple Group – Kelly, Molly and Charlotte

Blue Group – Donna and Gemma

Red Group – Nikki and Amy

Jackie, Kim, Lucy and Lesley remain on furlough. We look forward to welcoming them back to nursery soon.

Fee Increase

We have kept our prices the same since September 2017. In order for our business to remain sustainable there will be a fee increase in September 2020. Further information to follow.

Sun Cream and Sun Hats

Please continue to apply sun cream to your child before the start of their session and provide a labelled bottle of sun cream in their bag. We will continue to reapply as necessary throughout the day. Please also provide a named sun hat as we are spending lots of time in the garden at the moment.

Thank you.

Parent Meetings

Due to the Coronavirus we will be unable to reschedule the cancelled Parent Meetings from last term. Please contact us if you would like to speak to your child’s key person. We hope to be able to resume meetings next term.
