June 2018 Newsletter

 Welcome to June 2018!
Hope you've all had a lovely half term, we are now in the final stretch of this academic year. Hasn't it gone by fast?!

Please join me in welcoming our new Little Deers this month, we have 4 new children with us, we are so excited to have such strong numbers and going forward into September already we have our highest ever role number. Our Preschool is amazing because of you ALL.

Thank you all for your GDPR (opt-in for us to email you news) slips, I needed to make sure we were compliant with this new law.

Please take a moment to read this months newsletter. I hope to see you at all our wonderful events coming up- remember, our preschool is only able to run as we do because of this type of additional fundraising, so all and any support is greatly appreciated by the children!
Last BIG event of the year! Get your name on the guest list now for our Fashion Show!
It'll be a fun night out with your friends- See you there!!
Please make sure your child has name labelled Sun Cream, suitable clothing, footwear and a hat with them every session now. Applying Sun Cream at home before Drop Off, also gives the children extra play time in the garden in the morning. Those staying for the afternoon will have their sun lotion re-applied for that session.

Ad-Hoc Sessions

Apologies, at the moment we are very limited as to the Ad-Hoc Sessions we can offer. We have nearly full capacity for each session. But if you need us, do ask Zahra, and we will accommodate you where possible!

If you child is not going to be in due to holiday or sickness, please let us know as soon as you can- this may free up a space for someone needing an ad-hoc session. It also helps the staff know who to expect and you might help out a friend at the same time.
Who Do I Call?
If your child is off sick, running late or you'd like to add an ad-hoc day, please call Preschool on 07535 6550135 during opening hours.
For out of hours, enquiries you can contact Ali on chair@nutleypreschool.org.uk, through Facebook or on 07917 011058. You can also message our Preschool Facebook page (Zahra or Ali will reply).
Non-urgent messages can also be emailed to Zahra on Manager@nutleypreschool.org.uk

Thank you to those of you who have paid their invoices for this term already. Prompt payment is always really appreciated. 2nd Installments are now due please.

Any questions or problems, do talk to Neil or Ali in confidence.

HUGE thank you to everyone to everyone who organised and supported last month's Quiz Night- we raised over £1000 for Preschool. An amazing amount!
Hours and Sessions September 2018 onwards

If you have not already done so, please let Zahra know your child's sessions for September onwards ASAP. We need to plan staffing sooner rather than later now.

If your child will turn 3 years old between April 1st- August 31st 2018, they will qualify for 15 hours Funded from the government from September '18. You automatically qualify for this and do not need to apply. There is a form you will sign each term, and that's it! Hours can be spent in 3 hours blocks only (9-12 or 9-3), and extra hours outside this are charged at £5 per hour, billed termly.

If you qualify for the additional 15 hours (30 total), please supply your Voucher Code to Preschool when asked. To check eligibility, visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk

We Accept All Childcare Vouchers and 2 year Old Funding too.
Any questions do ask Ali Mason (chair@nutleypreschool.org.uk)
With children moving onto School in September there will be some parents leaving the committee too.
Philippa O'Donovan (Max's Mum) will be taking the Chairperson role and if you'd like to help shape our beloved preschool with her, then join the committee! There is lots to do, but fun to be had too as you help shape the future of Nutley Preschool!
