I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and wishing you a very happy New Year. We would like to thank you for the very generous and beautiful gifts and cards you gave to us.
We welcome our new children and families and look forward to working with you to help settle the children in and watch them grow and flourish within the pre-school environment.
New IT System:
Regarding the new IT system which Bromley Early Years are installing; I informed parents about this in the last newsletter, we have now been advised that it is not fully operational yet. As soon as it is we will let you know.
30 Hour Funding:
Parent’s must apply themselves for this additional funding. We cannot do this for you:
If you are working over 16 hours a week and think you may be eligible for the additional funding, please go to the following website and apply; www.childcarechoices.gov.uk If you are still unsure or have any questions please speak to Gill or myself. If you are in receipt of the extra funding, please ensure that you update your claim every 3 months; (from when you first applied even if your child hasn’t starting using it yet. You should receive a reminder from HMRC and we will also try to remind you as well.
Primary School Applications for 2020 must be in by Wednesday 15th January 2020:
STRICTLY NO NUTS:
Please ensure that your child’s lunch does not contain any nuts or nut products, we’ve recently had peanut butter sandwiches and nuts in lunches. We have people with allergies to nuts. Thank you for your cooperation.
Please remember to clearly label all your child’s belongings. We have lots of children with new coats, hats scarves bags etc which are not labelled, this makes it very difficult and time consuming when we are taking the children out to play and getting them ready for going home.
Also, to check that we have up to date contact details, emergency numbers, addresses, emails etc. Last term we had trouble contacting some parents when their child became ill, as they hadn’t given us up to date phone numbers.
Our Topic for this Half Term is: Healthy Living and Physical Development:
We operate an open door policy, (apart from the busy lunch time period) if you have any concerns or you wish to view your child’s Record of Achievement, please feel free to come in and either speak to me or any other member of staff.
May Bank Holiday 8th May 2020: Please be aware that the May Bank Holiday falls on a Friday this year and not a Monday. This is due to VE day.
God bless and wishing you all a very Happy New Year.
Anne Marie. Our Lady’s Pre-School Manager.
