Dear Parents and Carers,

We welcome all our new children & families who have recently joined us at Royal Arsenal.

Thank you to parents who are recommending us to friends and family this is very

much appreciated.

Photos:

We are having a company called ‘Nice Smile’ coming in to take Nursery photos on 21st June 2017. They will be taking individual photos of all the children, so please do let us know if you do not want your child to have their photos taken.

They will also take photos of families and siblings, so do let us know if you would like this service. They will start from 8.45 am and we usually have families and siblings first thing, followed by the babies in Pandas room, then toddlers and Pre-School.

Parent Update on Outdoor Space:

We have now had all the quotes in and have passed these on to Berkeley Homes for approval.

I am chasing them regularly for an urgent answer so that the work can start as soon as possible. Please be assured that we are trying to hurry all this as much as we can and I will keep you updated via email.

We also understand the concerns parents have regarding the heat and temperatures in the nursery. We had an engineer in to adjust the air cooling system, so this has cooled the building down a little. We have also bought several large fans and air conditioning units, plus all our doors are open. We are doing our very best to ensure that there is a nice breeze throughout the nursery and that staff and children are comfortable.

School Leavers Graduation Ceremony/ Party:

It’s that time again that all our 4 year old children are leaving to start school in September.

We will have a Graduation Party for all the School leavers on Thursday 13th July from 3pm to 5.pm. Parents/Carers are invited to attend this ceremony.

Sporty Mini’s: FREE Taster sessions

Sporty Mini’s staff are running sessions at our nursery every Tuesday morning. It is 30 minutes of fundamental movement skills sessions: Teaching your child the ABC’s of physical development.

Please look at their website: www.sportyminis.com

They are offering free taster sessions for your children to try out before you buy the sessions for the term. You will need to contact Sporty minis direct to arrange the sessions and to make the payment.

Healthy Eating:

We have changed over to our summer menu. Copies of the menus are available in the rooms as well as in the foyers. If you have new ideas for the menus, do let us know.

Buggies:

Only lightweight fold up buggies can be left at the nursery. Please ensure that buggies are left only in the green wooden boxes and not outside them.

Please note: Entrances are our FIRE EXITS. If the fire alarms go off, or we are having a fire drill we need to get all the children through those doors as quickly as possible.

Staff:

We welcome Miss Kiran to the Zeeba team as well as Miss Emma who will also be starting with us on the 5th of June.

We are sorry to say goodbye to Miss Jessica who will be going to University and Miss Diana as she is making a career change to become an assessor.

We wish them all the very best in the future.

Fees & Payments:

Children aged under Two:

£57 per full - £47 per half day

Children aged over Two:

£55 per full day - £40 per half day

Children’s 2nd Birthday:

Please note that the fees will not change on the date of your child’s birthday.

But your fees will be adjusted the month after your child has turned 2 years of age.

Policies & Procedures:

Our policies are on the website. Please ensure you have read them and do not hesitate to speak to us if you have any queries.

Extra days & Sessions:

Please note: we do need at least a week’s 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 or sessions at short notice.

Holidays, Absences & Sickness:

Please remember 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.

The Nursery number is 0203 247 4770.

Kind Regards

Ms Satvinder and the Zeeba team
