Tax-Free Childcare is a new government scheme to help working parents with the cost of childcare. Parents will be able to open an online account, which they can use to pay for childcare from a registered provider. For every £8 a parent pays in, the government will pay in an extra £2. Parents can receive up to £2,000 per child, per year, towards their childcare costs, or £4,000 for disabled children. The scheme will be available for children up to the age of 12, or 17 for children with disabilities. To qualify, parents will have to be in work, and each expecting to earn at least £115 a week. Each parent must not have income over £100,000 per year.

As the weather is getting warmer please can I ask that your child has their own water bottle in nursery on the days they attend. This helps the children to know their own bottle, as well as encouraging them to drink.

Could all children be in appropriate clothing for the weather. E.g. sun hats, cardigans/jumpers, coats/shower coats and so on. This will help your child to be comfortable at all times while with us.

I have sent consent forms out for sun cream. If you wish your child to use our sun cream there will be a payment of £2 for the summer. Please ensure the slip is returned as soon as possible. If you have not received an e-mail with the consent form on, please ask in your child’s room for one.

Could we ask parents to retain all nursery invoices for the financial year as you may be required to produce these for tax purposes.  However, due to the profound amount of administration when producing a year’s invoices, unfortunately we will now have to make a charge of £10 for this service.

The topic for this month throughout the nursery has been all about the people who help us and how important they are. We will end this topic with a visit from the local fire station to allow the children to see a fire engine up close we are hoping for this to happen on Thursday 2nd March.
