Acacia Pre-school

Autumn 1 ~ Newsletter 2018

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome back all our existing children & families; we are looking forward to working with you for another year! Plus, a VERY BIG welcome to all our new children & families, we are looking forward to getting to know you all over the coming year!

Our topic this term will be ‘All about me!’ We have got lots of exciting activities planned that will enable us to learn more about your child, their family, their likes & dislikes........& much, much more! Please help us by ensuring that you have returned your child’s ‘Profile Booklet’.

Every day at 10.15am we open our ‘Snack Café’. All children are offered a choice of milk or water to drink & will be given the opportunity to self-select from a wide range of healthy snacks on offer at the buffet trolley. There is no obligation, but we ask parents to kindly donate to the snack café whenever you can. We welcome donations of any fresh or dried fruit, cheese, breadsticks, rice or oat cakes. We ‘Thank you’ in advance!

Acacia’s AGM will be held on Wednesday 27th September at 8pm & we would like to invite you to attend. You will be able to find out more about the pre- school, have a cup of tea or glass of wine & some nibbles. Acacia is a charitable organisation & each year we elect a new committee to (amongst other things) to help raise money for new equipment & continue to support the staff in making the pre-school successful.

Due to local safeguarding & child protection guidelines we kindly ask that if parents/carers want to use the toilet or take their child to the toilet that they use the single accessible toilet and not the main toilets.

Thank you for your cooperation!

We take steps to ensure that there are effective procedures in place to protect the children that attend Acacia. As stated in our ‘Online Safety’ policy, we request that parents do not use their mobile phone or camera whilst on the premises (without prior permission). Staff will be happy to use the Acacia camera to take any photos that you may like of your child.

If your child is staying with us for lunch can you please make sure that their lunchbox is NUT FREE!! It should also not contain sweets or chocolate to help us with our promotion of ‘Healthy Eating’.

We are now pleased to be offering 30 hours free childcare, subject to eligibility. If

you are not eligible but would like your child to attend in the afternoons then there is a charge of £19 per day. For further details, please pick up one of our leaflets in the entrance hall or speak to a member of staff. We are also offering a breakfast club this year that will start at 8:15am each day. Children will be provided with breakfast and this service will incur an additional cost of £6.50 per day. We will continue to offer lunch club at a cost of £5 per day.

Our last day of this half term is Friday 20th October!!!

Can we please ask that parents/carers do NOT park across or on the drive- way & to instead park safely along Cambridge Avenue, so that we can keep our children safe!

Golden Rules!

Acacia has ‘3 Golden Rules’ that we ask children to follow:

1. Kind hands 2. Kind feet 3. Kind words

As you can see these general rules cover all kinds of situations, but are easy for the children to remember.

Please help us locate your child’s coat & bag, should we need it, by ensuring that they are clearly named. Thank you!

Can we kindly remind you that our opening times are: 9:00am – 12:00pm for our morning session, 9.00am -12.45pm if your child is attending the morning session and lunch club and 9.00am-3.00pm if your child is attending all day. We ask that these times are observed so that the staff can spend the maximum amount of time with your children & not spend too much time manningthedoors. Thankyou.
