Theme of the month: Winter in Woods

Nature is changing its colours and the crisp clean air is starting to make us all hopeful for snowflakes! Wrap up warm and relish in the magic that only winter can bring. Learn a new skill when Ice skating, have a lovely walk in town to admire the decorative lights displayed and enjoy the wonder of Hyde Park.

Tapestry Request:

We had great feedback from parents about Tapestry and would like to support you even more to be confident users yourself.

For the month ahead can we ask for photos based on People and Community? I’m sure there will be lots of Christmas themed events in and around London for the children to experience. Anything from pop up Christmas Trees, Carols to pantomimes. It’s also a great time to catch up with relatives from a far and update family photos in your child’s room. We look forward to your photos and video’s!

Staff on holiday during December:

The following teachers will be enjoying a winter holiday during December so there may be staff from other rooms present in your child’s room:

Ms Lehanie: 1-11 December

Ms Suna: 11-12 December

Ms Josephine: 19-22 December

Ms Yordanka: 21-21 December

We welcome Ms Lamiae and Ms Raissa to our Cover Staff team. We hope that you will settle in and feel very welcome here.

Sadly we will be saying goodbye to Ms Suna. She has been a fenominal team member and will be greatly missed.

Christmas Stay and Play:

Our annual Christmas stay and play will commence on Friday the 15th of December from 4:30 pm on wards. If your child does not normally attend that Friday, we encourage you to join us and enjoy the activities with your child and key persons.

Christmas Reminder:

Zeeba will be closed from Monday the 25th of December until Monday the 1st of January 2018.

Dalston will operate as normal on Friday the 22nd of December until 6:30 pm and re-open Tuesday the 2nd of January at 7:30 am as normal.

Could you kindly email the office your child’s holiday dates to be able to help us with our staff forecasts for this period? Thank you in advance.

Funding Reminder:

Parents whom currently make use of the Government Funding, please remember to reapply to remain eligible. Parents whom will benefit from the new set of Funding for 3 year old’s in January,please apply in advance. Bring your NI number plus reference number to the office. We have been warned by Hackney that the sytem cannot operate a high volume of requests and will crash if applications are made last minute.

School Places:

If your child was born between 1 September 2013 and 31st August 2014 it is time to start thinking of your little one going to Big School. The Butterfly team has already handed out a guide for you to look at but should you need more information we have one admission guide in the office. Parents will need to apply by the 15th of January 2018.

Kind Request:

The residents in the Tower are complaining that our parents park on the double yellow lines or on the pavement. I understand that parents have emergencies at times but kindly do not do park there for pick ups and or drops off’s.
