Things your child should bring daily
Please ensure that all your child’s belongings are clearly labelled with their name.
Please could you make sure that your child doesn’t bring in toys from home unless it is a comforter as we would hate for their toys to be lost or broken.
We hold a Library at pre-school during the session and is open to all children. After choosing their book the children can take them home and then return and change their book as often as they wish.
A copy of Feniscowles Pre-School’s Policies and Procedures are available daily and can be found on our signing in table.
Observations will be carried out daily on your child for the sole purpose of tracking your child’s Learning and Development. These observations can include the taking of photographs. These photographs will be stored in your child’s learning journey to which you can have access to at any time. Should you wish to see your child’s learning journey please do not hesitate to ask your child’s key worker. There is also a photo album on the signing in desk where all the photos taken can be seen.
Pre-School Communication books will be sent out weekly to show what your child has been up to and it also gives you a chance to voice any achievements they have made at home or concerns you may have.
Here at pre-school it is not essential that everyone wears our uniform, however, it is highly recommended. Polo shirts are available to buy to protect other clothing from the messy activities carried out. We also have hooded, zip up jackets which are recommended especially for the winter months.
The prices are as follows:
1 polo shirt - £7
2 polo shirts £13
Hooded tops £13
Security and Opening Times
At Feniscowles Pre-school we would like to ask that you try not to be late picking up your child at the end of sessions. We do however understand that occasionally it can happen. Could you please let us know by giving us a quick call or text. Please note that every 15 minutes of lateness incurs a £5 charge.
We would like to ask that you make sure we have the most up-to-date information at all times in case of an emergencies. If any information should change we would ask you to inform us immediately.
It is important that if someone different, other than the persons named on the information form are coming to collect your child at the end of the session, that you could inform us that morning or earlier as we will not be able to let your child leave without confirmation from you. Also, please note that we will be unable to allow your child to leave pre-school with anybody under the age of 14 years old.
At Feniscowles Pre-School we operate a password system. When your child first attends the pre-school you will be asked to provide a password which we will use if someone other than your named persons’ is to pick your child up. Please make sure that all people who come for your child knows this password as we are unable to let child leave without it.
If your child is unable to attend any of their pre-school sessions due to any reason please could you inform us as soon as possible.
Each child is given a key worker when they start at pre-school. They will be your initial contact within the room. Your child’s keyworker will be able to update you on their progress and development, they will also be able to talk to you about any concerns you may have.
