Dates for your Diary:

Parents evenings will be held during the following weeks:

Dancing & Dizzy Dolphins room: week of the 19th February - 4pm till 7pm

Pandas room: Week beginning 26th February - 4pm to 7pm

Laughing & Learning Lions: week beginning 5th March - 4 pm to 7pm

These meeting are an opportunity to discuss your child’s development with your child’s key person, as well as to talk about the next steps of your child’s development and how we can work together with you to support your child to achieve his/ her milestones.

Please note: These appointments slots will only be 10 to 15 mins each with your child’s key person.

We do have many children in the nursery, therefore we do have to be quite strict on time, to ensure we finish at a reasonable time and for staff to get home early.

Parent Forum: Will be held on Thursday 15th March @ 6.30pm

Please Note: For all Parents Evenings and Parents Forum:

Unless a late pick up has been booked for your child, all children do need to be picked up by 6pm.

Chinese New Year: we will be celebrating this on the 16th Feb.

Do you have: Old saucepans, utensils such as wooden/ plastic spoons for our mud kitchen and Forest School. We are also collecting different sized metal jar lids for our Heuristic play.

Outdoor Play area:

Please note the outdoor area is being used daily by all children.

A couple of the canopies were damaged in the heavy rain and strong winds last month. These have been replaced and children are using the outdoor area daily. Planning permission is going ahead, and the structure is being made so we are hoping the work will start in the next few months. I will keep you informed. I can only apologise for the delay in the permanent structure being put up, it is just taking a little longer than we expected as a few parties are involved in the process.

Healthy Eating/Birthday Cake:

Thank you for working with us. We have had lot of fruit and healthy shakes. We will continue celebrating each child’s birthday and make them feel special, but without birthday cake. We are really encouraging children to be healthy eaters.

Buggies:

Please note our entrances are also our FIRE EXITS.

In the Over 2's section, many children are now coming with scooters. Please do not put these on the shelf as these are falling off and can injure someone.

Staff:

We are continuing to recruit and will have a number of new staff joining us over the next few months.

We do have a robust recruitment procedure to ensure that only staff who are qualified, experienced and passionate about the development of children are considered for the post.

We Welcome to our Team:

Miss Jodi – To the Pandas Room

Miss Brook & Miss Zoe will be joining us over the next month

30 Hours additional funding:

Please note that parents are required to check and re-verify their eligibility codes every 3 months. Parents who are getting codes now for April will need to recheck these before funding can be given.

Accounts:

Please remember to put your child’s full name on all payments and queries. Also, please ensure that separate payments are made for siblings as they do have individual accounts.

Extra days & Sessions:

Please note: we do need at least a weeks’ notice if you require extra days or sessions for your child. We are full in most rooms now, so it is difficult to arrange extra days/sessions at short notice. We also need at least a week’s notice for early drop offs and late pick-ups to ensure that we have enough staff on the premises and rotas are done in advance.

Holidays, Absences and Sickness:

Just a reminder to call the nursery before 10 am to let us know if your child will not be attending due to sickness, outings or if they will be coming in later normal. This will enable us to save lunch/snack etc for your child, knowing that they will be in later.

You can call us on 0203 247 4770 or email at royalarsenal@zeebadaycare.co.uk.

Kind Regards

Ms Satvinder and the Zeeba team
