News Letter Spring Term (1) 2016


Hello and Welcome to everyone!

 Sorry for the delay in getting the news letter sent out.

Topics for the remainder of this term are as follows: Shapes, (to include Shrove Tuesday, Chinese New Year and of course Valentines Day), Opposites, Transport and Easter Celebrations.

Morning club (starts 8.30 am )

 Tuesday through to Friday and after school club Monday and Tuesday until 4pm. We would be happy to offer other days if the need warrants it. Please have a chat with Claire if you think you may be interested in these longer hours. These hours will not be funded by the government and will be charged at our normal rate of £4.90 per hour.


 Thank you to you all for your lovely comments on our Facebook site. Don’t forget that you can also read this news letter on our web site on the ‘Blog’ page!

Coat Pegs.

 Please help your child to recognise their own name on their coat peg. This would be a great help to them when they start reception class.

Personal belongings.

We have collected a large amount of lost property please look in the tub if you have mislaid anything.

Please remember we can no longer store pushchairs, scooters etc. inside during session times as it has become a hazard for the children. I would also ask that you try and discourage your little one from bringing in toys, it can be distressing if these items get mislaid.


If your child has been unwell please leave at least 24 hours before you bring them back into Playtime. We have on occasions had children returning before they are ready and the germs have just carried through the group.   Sickness and holiday forms can be collected from a team member.


Please remember to complete an Absence Form when your child has missed a session, ask members of the team for a form. Also please let us know if someone else is collecting your child, we will not let them go if we have not been informed prior to collection.

 E – Payment

 Bank charges are increasing and there is a charge for every cheque I cash, it would help if you could pay your fees online. Anyone who wishes to pay their fees online my account number is 41577271 and the sort code is 40-25-03. Could you please make sure when paying online or through your work that the name of your child is entered.

Max the dog backpack.

I am pleased to say that Max the Dog backpack has been a big hit with the children, and we will continue to keep sending him home. Thank you to everyone who has written in the book provided. The children love to hear what their friends and Max have been up to.


 Please remember Playtime Under 5s is here to provide a warm and caring environment to prepare your child for their forthcoming school days, if you have any concerns please have a chat with myself or their key worker ,we are always ready to listen to any suggestions you may have.
