Welcome to our March Newsletter.
We’ve had such lovely weather the past month, with the warmest February day time temperatures on record! We are looking forward to seeing more of the flowers blooming and the Mini Explorer Garden really come to life and buzzing with nature.
We will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 7th March. Please feel free to send your Mini Explorer dressed up as their favourite book character! We are inviting parents-main carers in to the Preschool on the Thursday to join in reading some stories together. This will be from 09.30 until 11.00 and 14.30 until 16.30. Please let staff know the book you would like to share and the time you would like to come along. Ideally we can spread the storytelling throughout the day.
We had our food hygiene inspection on Thursday 28th February and are pleased to announce we gained a 5 star rating! Full story HERE>
We will be holding a Parent’s Morning on Tuesday 2nd April from 10.00am until 11.15am. We’d like to welcome all parents and main carers to the Mini Explorer’s Garden to talk with the team and meet fellow Explorer parent-carers. Please advise your child’s key worker if you are able to attend and who will be coming, so we can plan our numbers.
The Easter Holiday Childcare club will be available to book soon on the main ADO website. Keep an eye on facebook or the website for more information. Please note, this is a service that we offer additionally to our Preschool term time childcare, although it is never guaranteed. We will always try with our best endeavours to provide this half-term and holiday service, but occasionally there will logistical issues or times where the facility may be unavailable either for the odd day or two at a time. We will always publish our dates well ahead of schedule to meet expectations. Additionally, as a business, its important the childcare service does not run at a loss. We can not support the service if we don't have enough parents booking.
Hopefully the February sunny weather is not a one-off. These warm sunny days remind us that we should always alert to ensuring that children come well prepared with clearly labelled sun hats and high factor sun cream.
We have had some staff changes recently. To see information on the team, please visit our website HERE>. We also update the information board beside the main reception gate.
This is the time of year we traditionally review all our policies and procedures. We have made and will be making further changes, subject to consultation to all the Preschool terms and policies. All parents will be made aware when we have finished. As part of our policy, Your changes to Terms will be specifically noted in a dedicated email.
