New Year Newsletter 2019 (Ashington)

Happy New Year

Thank you for a great 2018, it has been an amazing year that has again seen the nursery as finalists in the annual Village Carnival.

2019 is set to be another exciting year with plans to continue with re-vamping the nursery through general maintenance and enhancing an enabling environment in the outside area.

Alongside this, we will be looking to launch our Parent Forum to further enhance communication, contribution to strategic overview, promote services that reflect the nursery values, aims and best practice that continues to progress development/learning outcomes, as well as increase community links. Further details regarding the forum will be communicated during the Spring Term.

Policies & Procedures

The Policy and Procedures Manual has undergone its annual review and has been updated accordingly. Copies have been emailed to all parents and carers with a hard copy available at the nursery.

All are welcome and positively encouraged to make comment on this document, “Policies and Procedure Manual 2019”. Suggestions about key items, words or new policies are welcomed from staff, parents, carers, students, other colleagues, volunteers and or visitors.

Comments can be noted within the hard copy located at the nursery, given verbally or emailed directly to the nursery. The nursery policies and procedures sit alongside our employee handbook which is available upon request.

Nursery Annual Review

During January we will be conducting our annual review of the nursery fees and sessions to ensure we continue in supporting parents and carers with their childcare needs.

Should you have any feedback in relation to current sessions, free entitlement and or fees, please email the nursery by Monday 14th January;

Suggestions can also be discussed with either myself or nursery Room Leads. Any amendments to the sessions and fees will be communicated during March.
