Autumn Term Newsletter 2019

Welcome to our Autumn newsletter. I trust you all had a cracking summer and enjoyed your holidays?

We have lots of new children started this term. We’d like to welcome Arnie, Ronnie, Hallie, Jasmine, Darcy and Megan.

The school room will be studying healthy eating and wellbeing. We will explain what foods are good for you and what foods aren’t so good for you. We have also invited some professionals to come in and talk to the children about how to exercise (Gym Teacher), how to brush their teeth properly (Dentist) and how to stay safe (Policeman). We will let you know when this is happening.

Also, we will be sending home some information on healthy eating and ideas for lunch boxes.

The toddler and baby room are looking at the changes of seasons. If anyone has any pinecones, large or small, that they would like to donate to the nursery, we’d be more then happy to take them off your hands.

We are so excited to share some exciting news with you …….. Miss Jess is pregnant. We are all so happy for her. Her due date is the 26th January 2020. We will keep you informed of her progress.

I do need to point out, if your child is poorly and Calpol dependent, they can’t come into the nursery as this takes a staff member out of ratio to soothe and care for that child, plus this is spreading infections to other children and staff. With staff off sick we will struggle to operate.
As the weather has changed, please be in mind of packing your child with wellies and a waterproof coat, as we like to go out randomly for walks or play in the garden in the rain. However lots of children are arriving to the nursery wearing wellies but don’t appear to have shoes or slippers to change into. As wellies are very bulky to wear throughout the day, please could you pack your child with indoor footwear.

Talking of wellies, we are hoping to do a welly walk again one Sunday in October, weather permitting. We will keep you posted when this will be. Everyone welcome including four legged friends

Don’t forget to sign your child in and out. This is very important, in case of a fire or other emergencies. The signing in book is found on the front desk.

Please don’t be offended if myself or any of my staff don’t accept your friend requests on Facebook. Edgemoor Nursery has a policy in place about social media, advising staff not to accept requests from parents at the nursery because of the danger of how it can distort the boundaries there are between personal time and work time.

I need to point out that if you arrive before your booked in start time we may not be able to let you in, as it may take us over ratio until the rest of the staff arrive for work.
Please be mindful of this when you arrive early, we’re not being rude, we are follwing rules laid down by Ofsted.

If you drop your child off later then their scheduled booked in time then you can’t pick up later then their scheduled picking up time, unless a prior arrangement has been made with a staff member.

If you have any feedback about our website, please feel free to let us know.

From Debbie and the Edgemoor team
