Please speak to Sarah Hiscock for clarification on any of the above points
A parent/carer can call the setting at the beginning of the day and check if there are any spaces for that day for their child. These are called additional one off sessions and these are subject to available space. These sessions will be invoiced at the earliest opportunity. The cost for this additional one off session will be £15 for a three hour session.
From April 2015 three and four year old children attending an early years education setting may be eligible to receive Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP). Providers could claim an additional £302 per year for each eligible child to spend on supporting their development, learning and care.

From 13th December 2014, a new EU food regulation states that we have a legal responsibility to provide accurate allergen information that our snacks or cooking activities may contain to our parents/carers on a daily basis.
We have placed a whiteboard next to the arriving children's names. This board will display the menu for the day; and if any of the 14 allergens are in the food or drink we will be providing or using during our cooking activities.
If you would like to find more information about allergens and allergic reaction click here
If you are intending to bring a birthday cake or sweets into our preschool, we will need to know the day before if any of the allergens are in the ingredients.
Unless you provide us with this information, we will not be able to accept your child's cake or sweets.
