Staffing Updates
We are continuing to recruit for the role of Baby Room 1 Leader. As ever, we will keep you updated once any recruitment decisions are made.

Room Themes
All themes are developed and delivered through fun and engaging activities that help to promote the children’s personal, social and emotional skills, communication and language skills, Physical skills, Mathematical Skills, Literacy skills, expressive arts and design skills and their knowledge and understanding of the world.

If you would like to know more about the type of activities your child will be enjoying this month, please ask the team in your child’s room and we will be happy to share our plans with you.


Request from the Toddler Rooms
Staff in Toddler Rooms 1 and 2 would be delighted if parents could provide any holiday pictures to support our room themes of Holidays. Many thanks.

Summer Fete
We raised a massive £772.62 at the fete this year Clic Sargent. A very big thank you to everyone who contributed and came to the fete.

Toddle Woddle
Thank you to those of you who sent back sponsor forms from the Toddle Woddle. We raised £178.95 which will be donated to Barnardos.

Wrong Trouser day
Thank you to those who supported Wrong Trouser Day with wearing their “wrong trousers” and buying cakes. We raised £52.15 for Bristol Children’s Hospital.

Epilepsy UK
Back in April we had a fundraiser for Epilepsy UK. We managed to raise a massive £731.31 for this fantastic charity.

We are extremely grateful to everyone who donated so generously to the above charities.

Recommend Us!
Please recommend us on www.daynurseries.co.uk This can be done online or by completing a ‘Recommend Us’ card which you can request from nursery reception. Day Nurseries is a website where families can search for local Nurseries and the more recommendations we get the higher up the chart we go. The Nursery with the most recommendations is then the number 1 nursery in that area so please do vote for us. It will only take a few minutes of your time and it will be greatly appreciated.

Please do not be offended if staff members do not accept your friend requests. It is company policy for staff not to be friends with parents on Facebook.

Sun Safety
Thank you to all parents who have provided sun cream and sun hats for the children’s time at nursery.

There are times that it does not feel warm and we have been asked why we still apply sun cream to the children. Throughout the day, we check the UV rating for the area and for the time of day. If at any point the UV level is greater than a 3 we must apply sun cream and wear hats whilst outdoors. We adopt this practice within our policy as this is the advice given by the NHS and Sun Safe Nurseries.

We do display the weather information daily within the reception area. If you would like a copy of our UV chart or our Sun Safety Policy, please speak with your child’s key person and they will provide you with a copy.

Spare Clothes
Thank you for the donations of spare clothes. We will always welcome clothes that are outgrown/no longer required, so if you have any items we would gratefully receive them for our stock of spares.

Parent Development Group
You can find information packs about our Parent Development Group in the reception area. We also display the minutes from the previous meeting on the parents notice board, along with the names of the parent representatives for each group. Our current Parent Representatives have very kindly shared their email addresses for use parents unable to attend the meetings, allowing you to forward any ideas you would like discussed. We would really love for more parents to join the group. If you might be interested, please speak with your child’s Room Leader who will provide you with further information.

The next Parent Development Group will be held on Tuesday 26th September 2017. 6.15-7.15pm.

Recommend a Friend Promotion
Don’t forget that all existing parents receive a free week of their regular childcare for each friend that joins us. To ensure activation of the promotion, please ensure that your friend quotes your child’s name and Recommend a Friend when booking. Your friend will receive a free week too! (Terms and conditions apply, ask the manager for details).

Term Dates
The last day of term for funding will be Friday 21st July.
We are closed for Bank Holiday Monday on August 28th
The new Autumn Term will commence on Monday 4th September.

Many thanks for your continued support
Lindsay, Harri and the Shooting Stars Team
