New Year Newsletter 2019 (Little Acorns)

Happy New Year

Thank you for a great 2018, it has been an amazing first year as Nursery Manager.

At the start of the year we achieved Outstanding in personal development, behaviour and welfare with an overall grade of Good from Ofsted and ended the year with both Katie and Jamie achieving their next level of childcare qualification.

2019 is set to be another exciting year with the proposed new mobile classrooms now agreed and scheduled to be erected during the Summer break. This project will mean Little Acorns will have the opportunity in working with the School in the final weeks of the Summer Term, to not only enhance transitions but in preparing for the new classrooms. Further details as to the Little Acorns classroom during this period 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 Jo, Deputy Manager. Any amendments to the sessions and fees will be communicated during March.
