Spring 2021

A warm Welcome

We would like to warmly welcome all children and their families who have recently started at the nursery, including the siblings of existing children.

Reminder – Toys from home

It would be appreciated if children were not to bring toys from home into the nursery as we try to eliminate cross contamination as best we can.

Footwear/Clothing

If your child attends nursery wearing wellies please could you ensure that suitable footwear is provided for indoor play i.e. slippers.  This will help support children with their transition in play alongside ensuring they are comfortable.  Please could we also request that any clothing/footwear is labelled with your child’s name or initials.

Parent Evening

Our next parent consultations will take place during March and will again be conducted by phone. If you would like a consultation please inform your child’s Key Person who will arrange a mutually convenient date and time.

Drop off and collection

We will continue to receive and return your children to the carpark for the foreseeable future. On arrival staff in the Roos room will notify the other rooms that you are here. Unfortunately, it is not always possible for staff to bring you child out straight away and we ask for your patience and understanding in this matter. Please continue to wear a face mask.

School places

Parents of children who will be attending school this September will shortly hear the decision the local authority have made regarding the school their child is to attend. Please can you pass this information to your child’s Key Person so that we can prepare paperwork, liaise with the school and help your child prepare with the transition.

Funding Codes

Parents wishing to claim extended funding (up to 30 hours) from April 2021 need to apply for an eligibility code from Child Care Choices before 31st March 2021.  A reminder that those already claiming extended hours may have to renew their code to continue to be eligible.

Summer Outing

It is with regret that we will not be having a nursery summer outing this year, we feel any plans we make could be changed as things are still uncertain.

 

Nursery 25th Anniversary

The Farningham Day Nursery is celebrating 25 years of childcare this year and we hope to have an open day in the summer to mark this achievement.  Plans will be communicated closer to the time.
