If your child is unwell he or she needs to be at home with you for their own good and to stop the spread of disease to other children or staff. They MUST NOT return to Playschool until 48 hours after they have stopped diarrhoea or sickness. If your child needs Calpol – they should not be at Playschool – Playschool is a busy environment and they will recover better and quicker if they have a quiet day at home. . PLEASE INFORM PLAYSCHOOL OF REASONS FOR ANY ABSENCE.
If you have any outstanding fees please phone Sam (our admin lady) to arrange payment. Sam’s phone number is 01728 638629 (leave a message if she isn’t there and she will call you back.)
Please remember children need to be dressed in suitable clothes for the weather and ones that will be OK to get dirty! Please send in a complete change of clothes, so that if they get wet/muddy we can change them for the rest of the session. All children need a rain coat & sun hat and wellies every day. We do have a very limited supply of spares but not enough for all. Please clearly label your child’s things. Please apply long lasting sunscreen to your child before leaving them at Playschool.
We request that children don’t bring toys or unnecessary possessions into Playschool as staff cannot be responsible for them and they may constitute a risk to other children.
Reminder: we cannot refrigerate children’s lunch boxes they may need an ice-pack to keep contents fresh. The push for really healthy lunch boxes continues. Staff will not allow children to have sugary drinks, crisps, sweets, cakes or chocolate, unless it is a special occasion, so please do not include them in their lunch boxes. Please speak to staff if you have any questions about this.
