Parents Letter June 2018
We have also updated our safeguarding policy this can be accessed via our website.
Please ensure that all new enrolment forms for your child have now been returned to the office. If you have not yet completed a new enrolment form please see the office to complete this.
Please ensure that you notify us if your child is going to be absent, this may be due to illness, holiday etc. Also remember to notify us if you have a change of address or telephone number. If you child has sickness and/or diarrhoea please ensure that they refrain from attending nursery for 48 hours from their last bout of illness. If your child is off due to illness you will still be charged for this period.
If your child requires regular medication such as an inhaler, eczema cream, allergy medication please inform your child’s keyworker as they will need to contact your child’s health visitor to receive a health care plan.
Please ensure that you bring and collect your child at the correct times for their sessions. If you arrive too early you will be asked to wait with your child until their session begins, if you collect late you will receive a late payment charge. Staff are rostered in line with children’s sessions to ensure that ratios are met.
Please ensure that your child is provided with a sun hat and sun cream with their name clearly labelled. Please ensure you have applied sun cream prior to your child coming into nursery and staff will re-apply this in the afternoon.
When bringing and collecting your child from nursery please ensure that you use the car park provided. The car park is situated off Earls Road through the black gates. We advise that you do not park on the pavement/ road outside the front of the nursery to avoid accidents occurring, also we would ask that you do not park in the driveway at the front of the setting as this obstructs pedestrians being able to access the building. We are aware that the car park is in need of some TLC and this has been passed on to the landlord.
Unfortunately fees are set to increase this year, this is due to an increase in the national minimum wage twice within this year therefore, we have had no choice but to increase the fees to maintain our staffing and facilities. Please see new fees at the end of this letter.
We require fees to be paid 2 weeks in advance. If you have any concerns about fees please come to the office to discuss this.
Can we please ask when paying for dinners please pay these in full at the beginning of each week to the office rather than each day and given to the staff.
Parents receiving 30 hours for their child please remember to ensure that you reconfirm your child’s eligibility every 3 months, to do this you will need to log back into the same system and click reconfirm. If your child receives 30 hours, funding will end on Friday 10th August and begin again on Monday 3rd September.
15 hours funding
Children receiving 15 hours funding will finish on Friday 20th July for the summer and will begin again on Monday 3rd September.
