All parents are reminded that when the weather is due to be hot your child MUST have a sun hat and must have suncream applied or they will not be allowed to play outside.
We are always monitoring the weather for the week ahead so we can inform parents.
Our policy has always been "No hat no play".
This is to keep your children safe in the sun.
In the past we have been able to supply children with one of our spare hats however due to COVID 19 we are no longer allowed to do this.
We always have up to date newsletters on here and on the main entrance doors. If you have any questions please ask a member of managment.
I hope you are all well and had a lovely Easter break.
A very warm welcome to our new little ones starting, especially during this difficult time where parents have not been able to visit the pre-school prior to registering their children for a place.
Please keep us up-dated if your child is not attending the setting, as we are required to record this information weekly for the local government Bromley Early Years.
If your child is ill, has a temperature or showing any covid symptoms, please keep them at home and advise us immediately. Also, if a family member is self-isolating, your child cannot return to pre-school until the isolation period of a full 10 days is over.
If parents have any concerns, please ask to speak to me or my trainee manager Danni. Staff are only following procedures within the setting, if there is something that your unhappy about please don’t take it up with staff as they are only doing their job.
It’s extremely important that children are collected on time, as we have strict ratios to adhere to and if children are collected late it affects staffing ratios, especially at lunch time when we are trying to organise staff lunch breaks. Obviously, we understand emergencies happen, but please let us know as soon as possible. Continuous late pickups will result in a late payment fee.

This is the advise letter from Department of Education
Advice to All Parents - Single case
We advised the Public Health England that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the pre-school.
We know that you may find this concerning but we are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England. This letter is to inform you of the current situation and provide advice on how to support your child. Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.
The small number of children who have been in contact with the individual who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) have received a letter informing them that their child must stay at home for 10 days.
What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19
If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they must not come to pre-school and should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared. Anyone with symptoms will be eligible for a PCR test (the normally available test type) and this can be arranged via https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.
All other household members who remain well, must stay at home and not leave the house for 10 days. This includes anyone in your ‘Support Bubble’.
The 10-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.
Household members should not go to work, school or public areas and exercise should be taken within the home.
If you require help with buying groceries, other shopping or picking up medication, or walking a dog, you should ask friends or family. Alternatively, you can order your shopping online and medication by phone or online.
Household members staying at home for 10 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.

If you are concerned about your child’s symptoms, or they are worsening you can seek advice from NHS 111 at https://111.nhs.uk/ or by phoning 111.

If parents need any help or support or just a chat please phone Anne Marie.
We reiterate that parents must follow social distancing outside and need to let us know if you or your child are showing any covid symptons then you must keep your child at home.
Take care best wishes
Anne Marie, Danni and the girls.
