May Newsletter

Dear Parents/Carers

STAFFING: We would like to welcome Ana Perez to the Fledglings team.  Ana is an experienced Nursery Practitioner, she will be working in the pre-school room.

HOLIDAYS: We are closed on bank holiday Monday, 27th May.  Please remember to inform us by email / text if your child will be absent due to holidays.  This is a safeguarding requirement and helps other parents if they have asked for extra days if we know you are going to be absent.  Many thanks.

NOTICE: If your child is leaving to go to school in September, you will have been invoiced up until Friday 30th August 2019.  If you intend to give notice to leave before that date, please remember our notice period is one full month.  For example, if you wanted to give notice to leave on 10th August, this would need to be done by the end of June.  July leavers would need to give notice by the end of May.

CAR PARK: You will have noticed new gates appear at the front entrance to Moss Hey school.  It is a condition of our lease from Stockport Council that no parents are to use the car park and a safeguarding requirement from the school that no children are allowed to walk through the car park.  Those parents that have been given permission to park in the school car park have been issued with a relevant parking permit.  All other parents and carers are to park considerately on the surrounding roads (even if you think there is space in the car park, we must insist you do not park there).  Please discuss with Jane if you or any of the carers picking up your child have mobility issues and wish to have permission to use the school car park.

ACCESS CODE: Our ongoing commitment to safeguarding means that we change the access code to Fledglings regularly.  Current parents will be text the new code soon.  Please only give this code to those people who regularly drop off / collect your child.  Others who infrequently collect them will need to ring the doorbell to gain access to Fledglings.  Please also remember to never let another person into the building on your way in or out.

ROLE PLAY: We would appreciate donations of reasonable condition adult hats, handbags, briefcases, costume jewellery for our role play area.

CHANGE OF CLOTHES BAGS: Please remember to check your child’s change of clothes bag each time your child attends Fledglings to ensure that it is brought in with appropriate spare clothing and put on the correct peg.  Please could we remind you not to take the blue sleep bags home.  Many thanks.

GROUP PHOTOS: Thank you for your support with the group photograph, the proofs and order forms will be available soon.
