As you can imagine it is a busy time of year here in Pre-School, the nativity play rehearsals are going well and
the children are very excited.
This year the concert will take place over in the main hall at Chantlers Primary School on Monday 19th December at 9.45 for around about an hour and a half. After the performance, we will be providing soft drinks and nibbles, we will also be drawing the raffle tickets on this day. Please ensure all raffle tickets are returned to pre-school before Friday 16th December, otherwise you may not be entered into the draw. However, if you require any more tickets there will be a limited amount available to buy on the day.
Please could we ask that all children bring in one Christmas card addressed to all the class instead of individual ones, as we have over 35 children and we will not be able to distribute these daily. Thank you for your co-operation.
Every year we give the option for children to wear Christmas jumpers each day, this means your child does not have to wear uniform and can come to Pre-School wearing something ‘Christmassy’ from the week commencing 12th December onwards if you wish to do so.
Christmas Party Day
Please note, we will be having a visit from Father Christmas on the party day which will be held on Wednesday 21st December ALL children are welcome to attend and can wear Christmas party outfits or dressing up on this day. Please note there will be no afternoon session on this day. Please could you let us know if your child will be attending both the Christmas party and/or the nativity if they don’t usually attend these days, thank you.
Importance health notice:
Over the past few weeks we have had an extraordinarily large number of children off sick with various illnesses. Including winter vomiting bug, diarrhoea, coughs, colds and high temperatures. If you think your child may be coming down with, or have any of these illnesses please keep them away from the setting for 48 hrs after the last bout of sickness, diarrhoea or high temperature. We have also had several members of staff off over the past week due to illness. Please see attached sheet.
Please note: We have been advised by Public Health Agency in Bury that the number of people off ill is probably due to the time of the year and is perfectly normal. The setting is thoroughly cleaned at the end of the day to minimise the spread of infection. If you are unsure or have any queries regarding any health concerns or whether to send your child into the setting, please feel free to ask a member of staff who will be able to advise you using the Public Health England guidelines.
Additionally, please could you ensure your child has clothing in the setting that is appropriate for the weather, i.e. hat, gloves, wellies, jumpers etc.
Finally, ALL THE STAFF would like to wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR.
We will be closing on Wednesday 21th December at 11.45 after the party. Please note there will be no afternoon session on this day. We will be re-opening on Monday 9th January 2017.
