General information
As the weather is turning hot could parents please take current weather conditions  into consideration and pack suitable clothing. Could you also ensure that children have at least two spare pairs of clothes and have coats with them. We also would ask that clothing is old and not brand new as children do get messy even with waterproofs and aprons on.


If your child is going to be absent from the setting it would be greatly appreciated that the setting is informed as soon as possible that they aren't going to be in setting and also how long they are expected to be absent.


A gentle reminder that the setting opens 8 am and closes at 5pm, could parents and carers please inform childcare staff if there is a change to people collecting their child/children. 

If you need extra childcare sessions please can you see Sharon and at least two weeks notice is needed.
