Congratulations to Ms Demi, who has been at Zeeba for 3 years, and Ms Reyhana for 6 years!Welcome to Ms Gabriele who joined the Zeeba team. Sadly, we said goodbye to Ms Sonia, our cook, who has made a career change and took on an exciting new position.

Save the Date:

We will have a Christmas Fair Afternoon this year, rather than individual Christmas evenings.

This will take place on Friday 8th December from 15:00 – 17:30. Come and enjoy hot drinks, Christmas treats, Santa’s grotto and of course Santa! Christmas activities will also take place in the rooms for you to take part in.

Parent Evening December:

Our parents evening will be held on the 18th and 19th December from 17:30. Should you wish to book an appointment to speak to your child’s key person timeslots will be available to book the week beginning 11th December. These meetings are not compulsory, but are made available should you wish to discuss any concerns you have with your child’s development.

Mighty and Marvellous Monkeys: Monday, 18 December from 17:30

Jolly Giraffes and Laughing Lions: Tuesday, 19 December from 17:30.

Christmas Holidays:

Zeeba will be close on Friday 22nd December at 6pm for the Christmas break. We will open again on Tuesday 2nd January as per normal. Please let us know of any holidays or time off your child may be taking during this time to support us with staff planning and staff holidays.

Weather:

With the weather becoming colder, please ensure your child has suitable clothing including a warm coat, scarf, hat, etc. for their play time outdoors. These are to be labelled with the child’s name and surname.

Toilet Training:

Whilst your child is toilet training please provide at least 5 spare changes of clothing including underpants, trousers and socks. Toilet training information can be found in the Jolly Giraffes main room.

Extra Clothes:

Please bring a bag of extra clothes with your child to Nursery. As the children participate in a variety of activities and are learning to feed themselves independently, they may need to be changed into dry, clean clothes during the day.

Front Door Policy:

Parents are reminded to not open our Nursery doors or keep the Nursery doors open for other parents due to safety and security procedures. Please ring the bell and a staff member will be with you as soon as they can.

Nursery Hours:

Our Nursery opening hours are from 08:00 – 18:00 Monday to Friday. Early mornings and late pick- ups can be arranged in advance with Management only.

Collection of Children:

Please tell us if anyone else is collecting your child. We would request that you email/ phone us the day before to inform us that your child will be picked up by someone else. Please give the adult’s name and surname and provide us with a password e.g. “red balloons”. When the other adult collects the child, they need to have photo ID with them and they need to give us the correct password. If they fail to do so we will not release the child into their care.

Kind Regards,

Ms Izette & the Zeeba team
