Roundabout Pre-School

Newsletter

November/ December 2017

I’d like to once again take the opportunity to congratulate our children on their fantastic behaviour, particularly when they come into Roundabout to begin a session. It always heartens us when we see that our children feel happy and supported to come into Roundabout. We are beginning to see some lovely bonds forming between new children and their peers, as well as our practitioners. For us at Roundabout, positive relationships are one of the most important factors in the care that we provide.

Committee news

The Committee is a great opportunity to meet other parents and help us to maintain our fabulous community feel as a setting. Being on the Committee means that help to make decisions which directly affect the children under our care. For example, we go to the Committee when faced with all decisions on how we should improve our resources and make new purchases so it really is a fun, but important role. 

Our annual general meeting was held on the 18th October where a new Secretary was appointed - welcome Rachel Naylor. We are still looking for a Chair to lead our Committee, if any of you would like to be more involved with our pre-school, please let us know. Roundabout needs you!!

Parent involvement

Thanks to the many parents who have taken the time to come into the setting to discuss their child’s starting point summary with their key person. These initial assessments of our new starters are absolutely vital in ensuring that we are getting to know our children effectively, and therefore able to meet their developmental needs as the term progresses. As a setting we place huge emphasis on gaining as much knowledge as we can about the children’s lives at home, and without your input we could not possibly make an accurate judgement on what our children’s interests and abilities are. Parents will be continually asked for their comments throughout the term and we are so grateful at how forthcoming you can be.
