Additionally, we are excited to announce that our team of staff has been growing yet again over the summer as we continue to expand! So we would like to introduce to you our three new lovely ladies: Louise Ridsdale, Kerry Gibbs, and Brogan Gibbs. These girls are experienced and fully qualified and can’t wait to get stuck in and have a great time as we play and learn!
This term we plan on continuing a theme we started earlier on “My Family”, so if you haven’t done so already, please make sure you bring in a family picture for us to stick up on our “family tree” on the wall!
Some of our children may have been assigned a different key person for the new term, so it may be a different nursery team member than before who will now be tracking and reporting back to you on your child’s progress. We will be posting a Key Person list on the room front door, plus your key worker will of course introduce themselves to you personally!
As previously mentioned, we had an overwhelming majority vote in favour of us getting uniforms for the children. This is in progress and we are just waiting for the uniform provider to get back to us. Once everything is finalised, we will provide full details about how to make an order and prices etc.
A note on the CCTV camera system, all of our newly registered parents will have been assigned their camera login details after registering. If you haven’t received these yet, then please ask a member of staff and we shall retrieve them for you. Furthermore, XM Eye, the company that provides the software for the camera system, have been updating their system as of late so you may find you have been struggling lately to login. Also, they have updated their phone app, so please make sure that you have downloaded the latest version of the app or else it may not work. If anyone is still having trouble, please let us know and we will try to resolve it for you.
Lastly, a quick word on fees, since some of you were away from nursery over the course of the summer, some of you may still owe fees from the summer months. If so, please get those in to us ASAP, as the latest invoices are still yet to come and we don’t want you to fall behind! Thanks!
