DEAR PARENTS AND CARERS
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all the new parents and their children to Happy Hands Montessori nursery in this new summer term.
My staff and I would do our best to settle your children and make them feel comfortable as quickly as possible. As for all the other parents I would like to thank you for supporting me and my staff in the last term.
The staff team at Happy Hands for Summer term 2013.
We 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.
We 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.

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).
