HEALTHY EATING

HH-Montessori-Nursery-Newsletter-Summer-2013_Page_2_Image_0002We would like to take this opportunity to mention to everyone about the promotion of healthy eating at Happy Hands. We provide a healthy and balanced menu for children who eat nursery food, and kindly ask that if you provide your child with food for snacks/lunch/dinner, it is also healthy. Thank You.

We have already sent out a letter giving you tips on what we encourage for healthy snacks. We are changing our food menu for the spring/summer term so please feel free to give us suggestions on the snacks and meals we provide.

HH-Montessori-Nursery-Newsletter-Summer-2013_Page_1_Image_0042We are promoting hygiene and self-care wherever possible at nursery. After mealtimes, all children go the bathroom and clean their teeth. If you have not already done so, could you please send a toothbrush and toothpaste for your child/children to be left at the nursery? It will be kept safely sealed and labeled. It is also really important that you provide us with a change of clothing (clearly labeled) for your child/children. These will be kept securely in lockers provided in the nursery. We also ask you to provide slippers/indoor shoes which will also be kept at the nursery.

I would like to inform that our lunch/dinner money has increased from £3 to £3.50. The cost of the prices was increased to meet the expense for our new dinner lady Sharon Gray.

Pick Up and Drop Off Times

It is vitally important that you drop off and collect your child at the agreed times. Children cannot be dropped off anytime and collected three hours later. We work on a
staff:child ratio and have to plan for this in advance.

Unless you have agreed a change of hours or additional hours with management then there will be a charge of £5 for every 15 minutes that you are late (at the managers’ discretion).

 

Summer Play & Trip

  • We have decided that the Summer Play will be a medley of Beatles songs.
  • This I believe will be our best ever performance and would be grateful if parents/guardians could dress their children on the day in clothes from the Sixties.
  • At half term we will be visiting The London Aquarium, more details on this will be announced closer to the date.
