Staff

As many of you will know, we currently have Hana on Maternity leave following the birth of Caleb, We can now also share that Dannie too is pregnant and will be going on maternity leave in April this year. Please can we ask that if your child has anything that could harm an unborn that you inform us immediately so we can protect Dannie.
We will be looking to recruit two members of staff to cover maternity for at least a year so if you know of anyone who has a level 3 qualification in childcare looking for work please let them know.

Independence
This term we will also be supporting the children starting school in September to be able to put their coats and own shoes on and would ask that if possible you could support them at home too. We will still help when required so please do not worry.
Please also make sure your child has a second pair of boots or shoes as its now getting wet and muddy outside and so a clean pair to change into is required.

Learning Journeys
We will be sending home during the first week in Feb, your child’s learning journey for you to read and look through. If you feel you would still like to have a chat after reading their learning journeys please speak to Julie who will arrange a time for you to come in and speak with your child’s key worker. Please return your learning journeys by the end of the week.
