NEWSLETTER January 2011
We hope you al had a peaceful Christmas and new year, although this seems like ages agoespecial y as February is just around the corner. A big thank you to everyone who brought inpresents for the staff we real y do appreciate them. So here’s to 2011, may you al have agreat year!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Name Change As of the 5th January we became a limited company, and our official new title is Play-Days Corporation Limited (sounds posh but that’s al that was available at company’s house!). We have therefore been given a new Ofsted registration number which is EY423186. I have contacted the companies we receive childcare vouchers from but I would advise that you contact them to ensure your payments are still set up. New Bank Details Due to the above change we have a new bank account. The new details are as fol ows;
Name of account: Play-Days Corporation LimitedSort Code: 20 90 08Account no: 33599043
We urge you to change your standing orders to the new account asap, we will be closing theold account in March. If you pay by cheque these must now be payable to Play-DaysCorporation Ltd. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Christmas Fete We had a reasonable turn out to our fete considering it was very cold & snowy! We raised £304.16 in total and as always this will be used for new resources for the children to enjoy. A big thank you to everyone that came and for al your donations, we real y appreciate your continued support! Scholastic Books You should have received a scholastic book leaflet with your newsletter. Please return al orders by Friday 11th February, cheques should be made payable to Play-Days Corporation Ltd. We receive 20p for every pound spent which goes towards new books. Use of Language On a few occasions when staff have been speaking to parents it has been felt that some inappropriate language has been used, especial y as it has been in front of children. We do not want to offend anyone but we ask that you are mindful of your language, we obviously don’t want children going home repeating things! Swine Flu It is a common occurrence for children at nursery to have runny noses, coughs and colds but if your child is real y unwel please keep them at home to stop the spread of infection. The most effective way to stop spreading infection is good personal hygiene, especial y washing hands so we encourage you & the children to be vigilant at this. More information is available online at NHS direct or the Health Protection Agency and we have put up some advice on the information board. Birthdays Over the next few months the fol owing children & staff will be celebrating their birthdays. Happy birthday to you al ! Care Centre Visits Pre-school children went at Christmas to sing carols for the care centre clients, this was real y successful and enjoyed by al . We are hoping to do this more regularly as part of the children’s termly routine as we feel it would be beneficial to their development but more importantly some fun! Pre-School Yoga Just in case the pre-school children haven’t told you we have a yoga instructor once a month to do a yoga class. The children love it when Alison visits and enjoy taking part. The classes offer the children a chance to develop physical y but also mental y, by building confidence and improving concentration. We are hoping to increase this to twice a month soon. Sticker Charts These are proving very successful and we are glad you like looking at your children’s books. However, they do need to be returned straight away so staff can carry on putting in their observations. If you haven’t returned yours yet please do so straight away. Celebrations World Book Day – March 3rd – On this day we would love children to come dressed as theirfavourite book character, hopefully this gives you plenty of time to get creative. Over theweek we will ask children to bring in their favourite story to share with their friends, weshal give you more details closer to the date. Other celebrations/festivals we will be looking at include;
St Davids Day, Shrove Tuesday, AshWednesday, St Patrick’s Day, Holi & Purim. Nursery Places - If you are thinking about having extra sessions, bringing siblings or making any changes in general please see Theresa ASAP! We have a busy year ahead and getting full already for 2012! !

All men hate the wretched; how, then, must I be hated, whom am miserable beyond all living things! —– The Creature There’s a scene in the movie Splash when the mermaid, played like a fish out of water by Darryl Hannah, wanders into Bloomingdale’s. Unsure about her new surroundings, the winsome blonde parks herself in front of a wall of television sets. A man’s face on 20 screens is
