Newsletter 12 July 2019
We have had a fantastic week in both gardens; once again playing with the water has been a popular choice amongst many children, creating their own water based play, many children being soaked through to the bone and splashing in the bubbles . Today the children have created their very own obstacle course by using balancing beams, crates and tyres to test their physical abilities.
Lost property will be held for one more week and then put towards our spare clothes collection or taken to charity shop next Friday.
We have had amazing feedback from our school leaver’s on their transitions to big school. They have loved exploring their new schools and meeting old and new friends and their new teachers and retelling their experiences to the ladies.
Dates for your diary: it is our last week next week and we break up for summer on Friday 19th July 2019. Friday 19th July is our last session for all children, with the school leavers enjoying their leaver’s trip to Piglets on this day and the remaining children having a fun day. This will also be Kirsty’s last day before starting maternity and student Emily’s last day with us. We would like to thank her for her time with us, the children have loved her and she has made a huge impact on the setting.
The new dates for next year are out in the cloakroom situated near the doors as you leave the cloakroom.
Polite reminder: Brayton Headstart is a NUT FREE setting. Can we refrain from putting anything containing nuts in pack ups, including chocolate spread and peanut butter. We have a child in setting that is severely allergic to nuts and is in use of an EPI pen due to serious risk of anaphylactic shock. Any pack ups that contain nuts will be disposed of due to the serious nature of the risk to the child.
The registers are looking extremely healthy for the academic year 2019-2020 and we encourage those that are hoping for extra sessions come September and the following year to book now as spaces are limited. Please feel free to speak to Monika or Kirsty if you want to extend any sessions so we can try and accommodate and prioritise those that are already in setting.
As some of you are aware Carole has been away over the past few weeks with an injured leg. We hope she makes a speedy recovery and is feeling better very quickly. Her key children are looked after by her key buddy and aided by the ladies and we hope to have her back in September with a full bill of health.
We want to wish all our school leavers all the best as they leave us next week for a new adventure at big school. The time they have spent with us has been amazing with lots of lovely memories and friendships made; each one of them will be greatly missed but forever cherished.
Come September we will be going into in the moment planning, watch this space as emails will be sent out with more information on this new incentive by Ofsted.
