First I must apologise for not
sending you a newsletter in August and September. We have been very
busy installing a new state of the art software system for the
nursery from which we will be doing all the invoicing, newsletters and
much more. You may have noticed the staff using tablets in the rooms to
record childrens routines and activities during the day. Records from these
will be sent to you via a parent portal instead of the daily sheets you
receive when you collect your child at present. At the end of each day your
child attends you will be sent a 'Day in the Life of' summary of what your
little one has been doing during the day via email. You will be able to log
in and see your childs developmental progress, view invoices, book extra
sessions all from inside your parent portal and add your own observations
and comments you would like to share with us about your child.
We started rolling this out at the
beginning of September and we hope to be fully functional by the
end of October. Please be patient with us while we are still getting to
grips with it ourselves.

You may have noticed that we have also had a
small staff change with Lauren Clawley now part of the Preschool Room Team
and Courtney Pavey part of the Toddler Room Team. The key children for these staff will also
be a straight swap. If you are not sure who the key person is for your
child please do ask a member of staff.
Please can you help us develop our mud kitchen
outside in the garden. We are in need of old kitchen utensils, pots, pans
or baking trays or any kitchen items that you don't use any more for the
children to play with and make mud pies.
