Good Luck     

A big thank you to Liz who retired from Pre-School at Christmas. She has been a valued member of staff for many years and we send her our best wishes for her retirement.

 

Topics/Nursery Rhymes

Each half term Pre-School will send home  a Nursery Rhyme sheet. Each week we focus on a particular Nursery Rhyme to aid the children develop their skills in speech, listening, rhythmic patterns etc.  Please help your child to learn the Rhymes.

Fund Raising  

Last term Pre-School has a number of fund raising events - providing refreshments at the Village Market on 9th November and 14th December, Selling Plants at Roydon School Bazaar on 30th November and New Year’s Eve Party. We would like to thank you all for your continuing support. New equipment will be arriving at Pre-School as a result!

 

Pre-School Library 

Children have the opportunity to choose a book to take home to read/look at. It is available Monday and Friday.

 

Attendance

 

It is an Ofsted requirement that Pre-School monitors attendance and attendance statistics are displayed on the Parent’s notice board.  If your child is unable to attend Pre-School for any reason e.g. sickness/ holiday etc please let us know as soon as possible.  Any unadvised absences will be registered as unauthorized.

Coats/Hats/Bags  

 Please make sure these items are clearly labelled with the child’s name.  We have a number of identical items which can cause confusion. 

 

Medication  

Pre-School would like to remind parents/carers that it is their responsibility to inform Pre-School of any changes in their child’s health or medication.


Thank you! 

Pre-School staff would like to thank you all for your cards and gifts at Christmas. They were very much appreciated.


Bird Survey

You will receive a RSPB bird survey sheet to complete with your child. Please return these by Wednesday 5th February. Thank you

Notice Boards 

 

Pre-School would like to remind parents/carers to regularly consult their two notice boards in the foyer. These contain important information including details of daily activities/sharing dates etc.

 

Partnership with Parents

Your child’s learning and development is a partnership between home and the Pre-School/s.  On the notice board is a poster detailing the ways in which you help your child to learn at home.  Your child learns to do things at home that we cannot assess at Pre-School i.e. going up and down stairs or riding a bicycle.  Please contribute these milestones to your Child’s Learning Journey by taking a photograph or writing a small piece to be included into the Journey.  Family Adventures and Learning at home sheets are available on the notice board for you to use and be added to your child’s learning journey.

Contact Details  

 

Please make sure your contact details are up dated regularly.  If possible please update your ‘who can collect’ list at Pre-School with the details of friends, who can collect your child in the case of an emergency – e.g. car breakdown, appointment delay.

 

Parking

Please park safely and considerately to ensure that others do not have to park on the road.  Parents who are walking can then walk on the pavement and not in the road!
