Bourne Valley Nursery Group

Dear Parents,

Welcome back after a lovely summer.

Transitions have gone well across the nursery, the children are thoroughly enjoying their new surroundings, challenges and experiences and we are all looking forward to a busy but exciting term. We have some new children join us across the three rooms; all who have settled extremely well.

Over the summer there have been minimal changes to staffing. Most of you will have now met Chloe, (Toddler room leader). Chloe, Olivia and Andrea have been joined by Donna who has made the move from the baby room, they have all been working very hard to uplift and create an exciting environment and experiences for the children.

I am sure you will be joining us to congratulate Carly who has introduced her baby girl into her family. Nevaeh was born in July and both Carly and baby are doing very well. They have popped into nursery and I’m sure we will be seeing them again soon.

Meg also has some exciting news! Not only has she just got married, she will be leaving us in December to become a mummy for the first time. I am sure you will be with us in wishing her huge Congratulations.

30 Hours

Parents who wish to take up a 30 hours place in the autumn term, please apply as soon as possible, to get your code in good time. HMRC sometimes needs more information from the parent to check whether they’re eligible.

When you have your code you will need to complete a 30 hours consent form for the office which allows us to use your data and validate your code.

We would also like to remind parents who already have an eligibility code to reconfirm their eligibility for 30 hours every three months.

Early Help

Parents are always able to speak to key people or management, safeguarding lead or SENCo during the day, we also have an open door policy and confidential issues can be raised. Please do keep nursery in the loop in regards to any changes at home which may impact your child’s well-being.
