Government Funding 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 funding hours 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. Funding is offered only over term-time, no funding is available in August.
As the weather is still cold and wet could you please bring in some indoor and outdoor shoes i.e. wellingtons and slippers. Also can you bring a warm coat, gloves and a hat so we can keep all the children wrapped up when we go outside to play. Could you please make sure that all these items are labelled with your child’s full name.
Health and Safety
Please can you provide your child with nappies, wipes, creams, Calpol or Nurofen when required. We do not have any spares and we are finding this difficult to change your child accordingly without any of their own products. This is for your child’s personal needs to be met. Thank you for your co-operation.
New Contact Details
If your contact details change could you please notify the office so we can change the details on the computer database. This is for the safety of your child in case there is an emergency. Thank you.
Mobile and Other Recording Devices
To ensure the safety and welfare of children in our care we operate a personal mobile phone usage policy which stipulates that personal mobile phones cannot be used by parents, visitors or staff when in the presence of children, on the premises. All staff mobile phones are placed on silence or switched off and are kept in their lockers. Staff can only use their mobile mobiles within the restricted (staffroom) area. As a reminder ‘Phone Prohibited’ signs are displayed at the entrance of both nursery and the bungalow premises. A sign is also on display outside the nursery staff room. Our main priority is the safety of your children and we thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Mother's Day Activity - Salt DoughIngredients
Makes: 1 (350g) batch salt dough
125g plain flour
1 splash of oil
Sieve the flour into a bowl. Gradually beat with a spoon while adding in the salt. Add the water a spoonful at a time while steadily beating the dough until it resembles a dough texture. Add a splash of oil to prevent cracking and breaking up.
Mould into your preferred shape and place yours and your babies foot or hand to leave and in print. Lay them on some greaseproof or baking paper and on a baking tray. Cook them on a VERY low heat (around 100 degrees C/ 202 F) for up to 3 hours. If the shapes are over 1cm thick then they will probably need to be turned over during cooking.
Wait until cooled when removed from microwave before glazing with paint.
