Newsletter April 2018

Monday 16th April 2018

Thank you to the staff and parents that attended the Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) on Wednesday 4th April 2018).  As you are aware we were looking for parents to join the Pre-School Committee to ensure the pre-school could continue to run.  We now have three parents that are joining the pre-school committee following the appropriate safeguarding checks being completed.  I would like to thank the parents that will be joining the pre-school committee and the existing members of the pre-school committee for putting in their own personal time to support the pre-school and to ensure it is able to run effectively.

Warmer weather The weather is due to warm up from next week.  Could we please ask parents to provide sun cream if we do not currently have sun cream for your child here at pre-school.  Please ensure the sun cream is labelled with your child’s name and passed to a member of staff who will provide you with the appropriate consent form to complete and sign so we may apply sun cream to your child throughout the day.  Can we please also ask that during the hotter, sunnier days that you apply sun cream to your child prior to them attending pre-school, this will ensure that your child is protected from the harmful rays of the sun.  More information regarding sun safety for you and your child can be found at https://www.nhs.uk/livewell/skin/pages/sunsafe.aspx

Concept Photography is coming into pre-school on Thursday 19th April from 8.30am to 11.00am.  Should your child attend during the morning session then your child will have their photo taken during the session.  If your child does not attend during this session then you may book your child in to have their photo taken, along with their siblings from 8.30am.  Please email the pre-school office or speak to Stacey or Claire to arrange an appointment time, thank you.

Chicken Pox  A case of chicken pox has been reported at the pre-school.  Because of your child’s possible exposure, please watch your child for the signs and symptoms of the disease.   More information about chickenpox can be found on the NHS website.  If you suspect your child is ill with chickenpox, please inform the pre-school and keep your child home. Your child should remain out of pre-school until all of the chickenpox lesions have crusted over (usually about 5 days).  Chickenpox is usually a mild disease, but has the potential to cause severe complications in certain high risk individuals.  The people who are most at risk of developing chickenpox complications are pregnant women, babies under four weeks old, and people with a weakened immune system.

 Pre-School Open Day  We are holding an Open Day on Saturday 14th April and all are invited. Please see the attached flyer for further details.  We look forward to seeing you there.
