We would like to welcome all of our new children and parents to Rothley Park Kindergarten.
On Tuesday 24 December the Nursery will close at 2:00pm promptly. We will re–open on Thursday 2 January 2014 at 8:00 am. We wish all of our children and parents/carers a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
All children’s parties will be held in their own rooms on Wednesday 11 December 2013.
The parties are from 3.00pm to 4.30pm.
If your child does not attend on the day of the party they are still welcome but parents must attend and take full responsibility for their children. Please No siblings this year due to the high volume of children already attending the Christmas parties.
Free Early Education Entitlement
FEEE is available to all children the term following their third birthday, for a minimum of 38 week’s per year. This is claimed by the setting and throughout term time only. Each term can vary between 11 and 15 weeks. The deduction will be shown on your invoice each month.
Please do not hesitate to see us in the office if you have any queries regarding your child’s funding.
Kindergarten Fees 2014
We are ever mindful of the difficult economic climate in which we all live and the strain on all of our budgets. It is for this reason that, after due deliberation, there will not be a fee increase in 2014. We have made this decision after ensuring that our quality standards will not be compromised and you can continue to rest assured that our/your children will continue to receive the best possible care. You can help us by ensuring that your fees are paid promptly at the start of each month please.
Pre School iPads
A quote from Albert Einstein, “it is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education…if we are to develop our students’ sense of curiosity, we must be mindful to carve out time to allow our students to inquire and explore”.
How true that quote is; tablet computing and mobile devices promise to dramatically impact education and these devices will be used to re-imagine the process of education and re-kindle the students’ innate desire to learn.
At Rothley Park Kindergarten we want to be playing our part in this process and have begun by purchasing two iPads for use by our pre school children. We will be populating the iPads with educational software and games for the children to use under supervision. I dare say that some of the children may well teach the staff a thing or two if they have already been using iPads at home!
We would like to thank you all for supporting us through this difficult period and helping us to raise £250.00 in our appeal for Shae. Rothley Park Kindergarten also added a further £250.00, to cover the cost of a bench to be placed at Shae’s resting place. Shae’s parents, Daniel and Jenna, would like to thank you for your kind words and support through their difficult time. Daniel and Jenna have set up a charity to help families in similar situations to themselves, which will raise monies to offer support to those who are unable to cover the cost of a funeral or headstone.
