We would like to welcome Zac, Carter and Phillipa to the baby room and Sophie to the preschool room.
The nursery will be closing on the 24th December at the end of our morning session at 1.00pm, opening again in the New Year on the 5th January 2015.
Do you need more time in the morning to get to work? By recommendation of some parents we will now be opening the nursery from 7.30am. There will be a small charge of £2.50 for any arrivals before 7.50am and these must be booked at least one week in advance so staff rotas can be planned. This will be added to your invoice as an extra when you book, it is completely optional.
I have a sad announcement to make, Claire our manager will be leaving on 19th November. She is venturing to pastures new as her husband has been posted to another station and it is now too far for her to drive. Claire has been a great manager for Whiz Kids and she will be sadly missed by all. We would like to wish her all the very best for the future and to please come back and visit us regularly.
We are running a referral scheme whereby if you recommend a friend to us and they sign up, after their child starts they get £50 off their first invoice and you will receive a £50 giftcard from One4All. Click Here
Can parents please label their childs clothing with their name so it easily identifiable as some items have gone missing. Please also bring a warm coat, hat and gloves for you child now the colder weather has arrived. We do to take the children out everyday if it is not pouring with rain and if your child does not have suitable clothing to wear they will have to stay indoors with another member of staff. Please also ensure they have a pair of welly-boots at nursery.
