Dates for your Diary
Pre-School will be closed for the May Day Bank Holiday on Monday 1st May 2017.
2nd May 2017- Zoo Lab visit see below for further information.
26th May- Half term, Pre-school will close on Friday 26th May until Tuesday 6th June.
Once again, we will be having a visit from Zoo Lab on Tuesday 2nd May, please note, we have a limited number of places for this event, therefore if your child does not normally attend on this morning and they are due to start school this September please speak to Julia or Justine who will be able to arrange for your child to attend this visit. As we are a charity, we would like to ask for a voluntary contribution of at least £3.00 per child towards the cost of this visit, Pre-school will foot the rest of the bill. As previously mentioned we said we would have a free place for a child whose parents returned the questionnaire earlier this year. This has now been drawn randomly using names picked out of hat- the winner is Alice Pearson.
Well done, Alice .
Employee of the Term
In recognition of commitment to the setting, we are pleased to announce that Miss Baker was awarded employee of the term. We feel that Miss Baker goes above and beyond in delivering fantastic learning opportunities for the children and has shown great dedication in improving the setting. Miss Baker has also set up and regularly updates our fabulous Facebook page for parents, which has been a tremendous success. Mrs Humphries was also awarded a token gift and given recognition for her contribution to the setting, we think she does an amazing job on a daily basis. Well done to both members of staff.
We would also like to welcome Miss Emma Hodson who has joined the team on a part time temporary basis, Miss Hodson will be covering the lunchtime duties and will also work four pm sessions and one am session.
We have been informed by the head teacher at Chantlers School that some parents are parking dangerously in the turning circle at the beginning and end of the sessions. Therefore, any car that is seen parked within this area will be reported to the school, who will then forward the car registration number onto the police and will be reported for parking dangerously. Furthermore, we would like to remind parents/ carers not to park across residents drive ways, as this has also been brought to our attention.
Please park considerately when dropping off and collecting your child at pre-school.
Thank you for your continued support as always, from all at Chantlers Pre-School
