Wolverhampton - March 2019 newsletter

At last Spring it on its way and we are turning a corner with the weather getting warmer. Please don’t forget to provide your child with a coat and wellies for the garden so they can enjoy being outside. Hopefully it won’t be long before we start asking for sun cream.

Staff update
Please join us in welcoming the following staff to the Shooting Stars team.
Tracey joined us in January. She is a fully qualified Nursery Nurse and has previous experience working in a local day nursery. Sophie is a newly qualified Nursery Nurse and joined us in February. She is currently getting to know all the children and is looking forward to her new adventure! We would also like to introduce you all to Phoebe. Phoebe is a student at Wolverhampton College and is currently working towards a child care qualification. She will be joining us for the next two months whilst she completes the final stages of her qualification.
Louise, who works in our Pretoddler Room, is very happy to announce that she is expecting her first baby in August.

Spring Term funding Dates
The Spring funding period ends on Friday 12th April and the summer funding recommences on Monday 28th April. There will be no funding during the Easter break.

Please remember that the use of mobile phones is not permitted at nursery. Thank you.

Recyclable resources
Thank you to everyone who has donated recyclable materials and unwanted objects. Each room now has a wonderful array of materials to support their open-ended loose parts play. We will let you know when we need some more.

We hope you have all been able to activate your access to EyLog via the email we sent to you, and are navigating around the daily diaries and observations well. We would love to hear your feedback about how you are finding things or if you require any support, please let us know.

Room updates
Baby Room – The children have been exploring a Valentine’s treasure basket which the staff introduced during February. The children have had fun feeling different textures and smells. The children will be looking at the book ‘Dear Zoo’ alongside World Book Day activities.

Pretoddler room – The children in Pretoddler room have been busy exploring the new room layout, with more clearly defined ‘zones’ and different toys, we really love our new cosy space, and the children are really benefitting too. They have also enjoyed celebrating Valentine’s Day with lots of red and pink themed activities including a special play dough station.

Toddler Room – Toddler room hosted a Valentine’s Stay and Play session where families had the opportunity to get messy in gloop and make hand print flowers. There will be another exciting trip to the local care home coming up shortly too!

Preschool – The children have been interested in their new theme ‘All about me’ and thoroughly enjoyed a visit from a doctor. The doctor bought in her bag for the children to look at and had opportunities to use a stethoscope, listening to each other’s heartbeat. They also helped teddy to get better as he had a poorly leg!

Final Note
If there is anything we can do to improve your family’s experience, please do not hesitate to speak to us.
Many thanks from Kully, Charmaine & the Shooting Stars Wolverhampton team.
