It’s the Summer Term – we hope!
Welcome to the start of the 2018 Summer Term. Let’s all hope that this Summer term actually brings along with it some Summer weather! We’ve been waiting long enough now!
Some key dates for this term are:
Half-term holiday: 28 May to 1 June 2018
Last Day of Term: Monday 23 July 2018
Note: Monday 7th May and Monday 28th May are Bank Holidays
The New School Year begins Monday 3rd September 2018 after the Summer Break.
Funded-only children will not attend during the term holidays. However please keep in mind that the nursery operates all year-round, so private nursery sessions are still available during holiday times, please ask in the office for details.
New Staff Members Joining the Team
This term we will be welcoming several new staff members to the Whizz Kidz team! We say hello to Alice, Harsha, and Chloe!
Sun Screen and Hats
If we do end up being lucky enough to get some nice summer weather, then please can we ask parents to bring in Sun Screen and a Hat for their child. Also, if you don’t already, please ensure your child has a water bottle with them to help us encourage your child to stay hydrated.
Children’s Learning Journals available online
We are excited to announce that our nursery children’s learning journals will soon be available to view online! This means that our parents will be able to login and view their child’s progress reports and observations and photos – parents will even be able to add their own comments too! We will let you know when this function is full operative!
The Royal Wedding & The World Cup
We have various occasions that fall during this term, including the Royal Wedding and the World Cup. We will be carrying out various activities and games with our children over the course of the term to celebrate these respective events (come on England!)
We are now taking babies (under 2 years) at our Carshalton branch. Please spread the word!
We will give you one FREE session for your referral
As an incentive to reward our parents for their help in promoting Whizz Kidz, if you refer a friend to us who then takes up a nursery place, we will reward you for your “marketing” by giving you one FREE nursery session (subject to availability) as a way of saying thank you!
Nursery uniforms are now available to order! If you like, you can choose to have a Sweatshirt, a T shirt, Bag or a Cap. All of which are embroidered with the Whizz Kidz name on. You can order the uniform through http://www.tesco.com/direct/ueslink/24171.school
Could we please politely remind parents that as per our Late Pickup Policy, the charge is £1 per minute for every minute late. Also, if you are to drop off later than you usually do, please could you let us know so that we do not worry! Thank you!
Our “WOW” Board
Has your child had any “WOW” moments? Don’t forget to add them to our nursery “WOW Board” outside the office. Our staff continue to add WOW moments to the board such as Nikol trying some mashed potato and liking it; or Joel now wearing big boy pants! Please feel free to add to the board.
Leaving for School
Could we ask any parents whose children will be leaving to go to school in September to please let us know in advance! Please refer to our Notice Period Policy, in which we ask for 6 weeks notice when leaving Whizz Kidz
Thanks for reading, and we look forward to an awesome term!
