We would like to welcome back all our returning children and families and a special welcome to our new starters this term.
There have been a few changes to our rooms following the recent pandemic. In line with the government guidelines we will be creating a toddler and preschool room within the big space we have in the main room. This has been running as 2 rooms since returning in June.
We had also made some changes to the way children will be entering the building to a hear to social distancing. Our baby room families will be asked to come to the second door of the building located next to the library you will be greeted by Chelsea or tiffany Toddler children will still be arriving at our main door and you will be greeted by either Megan or Nicky and lastly our Pre school children will be coming to the garden gate located at the side of the building you will be greeted by Lauren or Skye.
We ask that everyone remains vigilant when dropping off and picking up, please stay 2meters apart.
Where possible we are limiting the number of items coming in from home. We are asking that all toys that are not comforters are to be left at home
Any comforters are welcome however they will be used for sleep times or times of upset. The children will not be able to use these all day to lower the risk of the spread of covid-19. If you are bringing in a comforter please notify the member of staff when you drop off to nursery and we will put them into a zip lock bag.
Changes to the team
Over the last couple of months, we have had a couple of changes to our staff team.
Our Deputy Manager Gemma is supporting another star setting while their deputy manager is on maternity leave. Sharon has joined the management team and will be support Rebecca as deputy manager.
Congratulations to Lauren who is expecting a baby in November she will be with the preschool children until she takes maternity leave in October
