Staff Member of the Month – November

Emily Webb is our Employee of the Month for November.  She was nominated by 2 parents who said…
 
“Emily has a really nice bond with my daughter.  Our baby is thriving in her care, she is caring and loving towards her.  Just knowing that our baby is so cared for gives us peace of mind for the day.  Emily takes time on collection to inform me how my daughter’s day has been.  Emily is a very polite and kind lady.”
 
“Emily has been very helpful over the past few weeks regarding my son.  She is always so happy to speak to and very informative about his activities and behaviour throughout the day.  She is honest about if he has been up to mischief and isn’t afraid to correct him which helps him understand and continue good behaviour at home.  She is very hardworking and chatty.”
 
Congratulations Emily, you will receive half a day off in recognition of your dedication.

SNOW CLOSURE 11/12/17

SNOW CLOSURE
Many thanks to those of you who have offered your understanding with regards to the struggle we faced in deciding if we would close our nursery tomorrow or not.

Many thanks to those who have advised us that your child will not be at nursery tomorrow.

Only 2 staff have said they would be able to get to nursery tomorrow, one of which is heavily pregnant.

Our priority is always to the welfare and safety of our staff and families. As we cannot guarantee this we are left with no option but to close the nursery tomorrow.

We anticipate normality returning on Tuesday.

Woodlands Silver Certificate

We have now gained our ‘Silver’ certificate from the Woodland Trust.

In order to gain our bronze and silver certificates as a nursery we have….recycled Christmas cards, reduced our CO2 emissions by switching off lights and closing doors, planted trees, explored our woodland area and the children have shared what they saw in images and words.  We are now well on the way to our ‘gold’ award!

New Faces

“Welcome to our apprentices Kelly Reynolds and Leah Lloyd-Perks who have recently joined our team at Kiddies.  They are studying Level 3 in childcare at Kidderminster College while gaining their practical experience with us.”

Update on fundraising

“At The Kiddies Day Nursery every new child pays a £20 enrolment fee. Kiddies donates half to Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund. This contribution of £420 is from their last financial year. Many thanks for your continued support.”
