Hello and welcome back after a very different summer break. We hope you have all had a nice break and stayed safe and well.
We welcome lots of new children this term and welcome back many children from before the lockdown. These times have been very difficult for many of us and we hope to get back into routine with ease. There are some restrictions within preschool you need to be aware of. We will continue with the children washing their hands-on arrival before entering the setting. Parents will be allowed to come in to drop their children off, but these times will be staggered to ensure social distancing where possible. If your child is happy to be dropped at the door then please continue to do this to help keep to these guidelines.
We will re-use the community centre as this is a bigger space allowing us to take more children in. I can assure you the children are safe in this environment and staff will be vigilant ensuring children are washing hands between going inside and outside, using the toilet, and moving from activities. Rigorous cleaning will be done throughout the session times to ensure the environment is clean and as germ-free as possible. If your child feels unwell, please keep them at home.
This terms story will be Dirty Berty focusing on germs and the importance of keeping clean.
We will also focus on settling the children back and building on relationships and social interactions.
Bring a named bag of spare clothes, wellies, sun hat and sunscreen.
Children must wear full t shirts and full closed shoes for their safety against the sun and the play equipment.
Your child must come to preschool with sunscreen on.
Any child who does not bring a hat or not wearing sunscreen or appropriate clothing will not be able to enter the preschool until they have.
Start of autumn term 1 – Monday 7th September – 23rd October
Half term – 26th-30th October
Autumn term 2 – 2nd Nov – 18th December
Please be aware the guidelines can change at any time and we are doing all we can to follow these and appreciate your cooperation with this. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to come in and see me.
