Newsletter – July 2015

Welcome to our newsletter for July 2015

Preschool Sports Day

Our annual sports day is taking place on Wednesday 8th June from 2 to 3 p.m. and refreshments will be provided.
All the Preschool children will be taking part and parents are welcome to come and watch. Please make your way to the Preschool Playground via the Out of School Club gate. We ask that you do not take photographs or videos of the event, but we will take lots and add them to your child’s Tapestry learning journal.
If you are taking your child home with you at the end of Sports Day, please make sure you inform the member of staff on the gate so that we can sign them out.

Early Years Research with Liverpool Hope University

We have been asked to take part in some research with Liverpool Hope University into a couple of aspects of child development. It is really important that we have a greater understanding of children’s development in order to help us give them all the best possible start in life, and we hope you will give your permission for your children to take part in these studies.
The first study looks at whether or not very young children can understand that what they have seen may be different to what someone else has seen.
The second study looks at children’s ability to share.
Both studies involve the children playing a short game with the researcher. There is more detail on the consent form that you will receive from your child’s Key Person, but if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact Helen or Andra to discuss it further.

School Leavers

If your child is leaving for school this year please can you let us know when their last day will be so we can prepare the CD of their learning journey etc.
If you need a place in the Out of School club and haven’t booked it already, please let us know as soon as possible.
If you still require childcare at the start of September because of the late school start this year, please be aware that the nursery does not receive any funding for children who are taking up a reception class place this term, therefore any nursery days will be charged at full fees.
