HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!

We just wanted to say a massive Thankyou to each and everyone of you who have participated in helping us raise money for a variety ofchildren’s localand national charities last year.
Altogether we managed to raise an incredible £431.09. Thank you all for your generosity!

Uniform

As most of you will be aware, we have a uniform for our Busy Bees children to support them with their journey to school readiness. We also have purple nursery gym bags available for every room for your child’s spare clothes. If you would like to order an item of our uniform, please speak to Sarah or Becky regarding when the next order will be going in. We have already given out letter’s back in December 2019, but we have not received enough order forms back to order, as we can only purchase in large bulks. We are aware that a couple of you have and are waiting, so we will let you know when the order for uniform has been made. If you have misplaced the form, then please ask staff for another one.

Staff Member of the Month Award

We would like to ask all parents/carers and children to nominate a member of staff who has stood out to them over the course of the month as someone who has made their experience of Broadway a positive one. We really want to hear your voice and help us to celebrate how amazing our staff are! You will be given a slip by a member of staff. Please post this in the white box in the entrance area before the end of the month.

Free-Entitlement

A reminder for parents,those children who are due to receive 30hours free entitlement from April will need to do an eligibility check and bring the code to usbefore 31st March in order to receive these free hours. If you are not sure whether you are entitled or not, feel free to come and speak to Sarah or Becky. A form will be given out during the Spring term to allow you to share this code with us.

Attendance

Just to make you aware that for those children who receive funding, we must keep a record of your child’s attendance and if necessary, we must inform the local authority if your child is absent on a regular basis.  Any funded days missed by your child due to sickness or holidays will unfortunately be lost and these cannot be saved and used elsewhere.

For fully funded children, can we ask they stick to the agreed contracted hours and can we also remind you of our nurserymealtime routine.

Please feel free to take home phonic activitysheets which are located at the top of the stairs to continue to help at home around our topic’s letters and sounds. (Aspect 4-5)

Just to make parents aware that we do not use Dayshare in Busy Bees.  This is due to the number of children present each day and the impact that this has on staff’s time with the children.  If you would like feedback regarding your child’s day, what they have eaten etc, please ask the staff present when you collect your child and they will be happy to verbally communicate how their day has been.

Could you please ensure that your child always has a warm coat and pair of wellies in nursery so we can take the children out in all weathers.

Thanks, Busy Bees Aunties.
