New Year Newsletter 2019 (Lancing)

Happy New Year Everyone and welcome back to nursery!

We hope you all had a fabulous Christmas time and that you’re ready to start the new year! We have lots of new friends starting nursery and lots of fun activities ready for you all to get stuck in to!

Please remember that if you have any questions or queries, the office door is always open for you to talk to myself or Nyssa.

Fee 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 on

Suggestions can also be discussed with either myself or Nyssa, Deputy Manager. Any amendments to the sessions and fees will be communicated during March.

Policies and Procedures

The Policy and Procedures Manual has undergone its annual review and has been updated accordingly. 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.

Staff Movements

We are making a few changes to staff places within the nursery. They are as follows: Catherine is moving to the baby room in January – she can’t wait to learn all about the babies and have lots of fun! Ranga is moving into the butterfly room – she can’t wait to plan lots of exciting activities! Brooke is now a full time member of the team!
