We say a big welcome to Emma and Stacey. Emma is undertaking an apprenticeship with Wisps and will be working here 3 days a week. Stacey has worked in various childcare settings and will be here full time until December 2017.
Becky who is taking some personal time will be staying in contact with Wisps and working 2 days a week until her full time return in April.
Sam is currently on long term sick since breaking her foot in December, we wish her a speedy recovery.
A big congratulations to Toni who has announced her pregnancy, baby will be due early summer.
Our new members of staff are currently undertaking their mandatory training and our existing staff are undertaking training to complement their roles.
The environment has been our main focus. We have explored both indoors and outdoor environments and ensured that all areas are being accessed and are inviting for all children.
Wisps have purchased a new climbing system to enhance the children's physical development. A lovely sand table and picnic table with a changeable top for the children to play on. Wisps have cordoned an allotment area, Mel will be taking charge of this area and we look forward to growing some fruit and vegetables.
All children have been assigned a new key-person if their original key-person has left the setting.
Home communication books will be sent home at least once every 2 weeks with updates about what your child has been doing along with any other information that you may need to know. Wisps have provided each and every child with a clear zip-lock bag, please ensure these bags are returned regularly as these will hold all pictures and any other communication that Wisps need to send home.
Please could all parents refrain from using Rucksack and other large bags, Wisps simply do not have the space to cater for these. Wisps do sell a logo draw-string bag or please feel free to purchase a draw-string bag of your choice. Draw-string bags take up much less space and will hang on the children's pegs without encroaching in others personal space.
With the weather still cold and muddy, please provide your child with appropriate clothing and footwear so that they can explore the outdoors.
An important message from the Federation Head Teacher.
Please ensure that when entering and exiting the school grounds that you close the school gate behind you. The gate is a security measure.
