Autumn Sept 2017

  September 2017 – NEWSLETTER


We are delighted to welcome everyone to Stepping Stones. It is lovely to see familiar faces and to welcome new ones. We are sure you will enjoy your time with us.


Planning and Routine

We are altering the way we plan and our daily routine; so please bear with us whilst we tweak and evolve our plans. We will be sending out detailed letters with our ideas soon! Don’t worry, your children are definitely our main priority and all changes are centred around them.



The children will be outside in all weathers, please ensure they wear suitable clothing and footwear, they will be muddy or painty from time to time. Muddy or painty is good; it means they are learning through exploring and active involvement, you should be worried if they come home clean!



On the notice board, you will find our parents’ rota, please try to find the time to attend for one session a term. It is always lovely for the children to have you around and we are always grateful for a helping hand with the washing up, (we mean super grateful)!



Please can you conform with your child’s key person the days you definitely require, we have people very eager to fill any spare slots.



As you may know, we are a committee run pre-school, and as such dependent on our lovely volunteers to exist. Please consider joining the committee at our AGM (date to follow). Talk to your key person who will point you in the direction of our very friendly and lovely chair; Amie.


Sickness; Safeguarding

A quick reminder; if your child suffers from sickness or diarrhoea please keep them home for 48 hours from the last episode. Please do not bring in any snacks from home as we have some children with severe allergies. Please ensure your mobile phones are switched off before entering our setting.


Welcome once more, we look forward to a busy and happy year, the stepping stones team.
