Roundabout Pre-School


March 2020

With Spring just around the corner, we would love to get the children involved in as many ‘growing projects’ as we can: vegetables, fruits and flowers. If you have any gardening materials at home (such as seeds, compost, plant pots, etc) that you do not think you’ll get around to using – please bring them in, they would be gratefully received. Also, if you are green-fingered and would like to come in to do some planting/gardening with the children then please speak to a member of our staff.

We are also looking for volunteers to come and help make our outdoor area brighter and engaging for the children, we will also be hosting a BBQ for all of the helpers, (Date to be confirmed) if you can help out please inform a member of staff.

Do you know anybody who has a waste disposal company/ van with a permit to dispose of waste legally or could you make any recommendations to us? If you do, would you kindly forward this information on to Adele?

Also, for all of you who are doing any gardening projects with your children or do the grandparents involve the children when they tend to their garden? We would love for you to upload photos on to Tapestry.

News from the Committee

We had a great Committee Meeting last week; there are some really exciting things coming up at Roundabout and we're looking forward to help make them happen! Our new long-term fundraising goal is to replace the outdoor play area and we would love to hear your ideas for ways we can reach that goal.

Please also mark Saturday 27 June in your calendars as we'll be hosting a stand at Horsforth Gala and will need face painters and friendly faces to look after our tombola!

Staying healthy and well

You will all be aware from the media and news that there are now confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the UK. Whilst we don’t have any cases at Roundabout, we still must put plans in place to minimise the spread.

For as long as there is a risk of coronavirus in the UK, we will be following advice from the UK Government website for educational settings, Public Health and our own sickness policy and procedures. Part of this plan is that we are asking parents, carers and childminders upon arrival to take your child/ren to the bathroom and wash their hands with soap for twenty seconds. We are aware that dropping your child/ren off in the morning is going to take longer, however we all need to be proactive and responsible in order to minimise the spread of this virus. If your child is feeling poorly, we ask that you keep them at home and seek advice from either your GP, NHS 111 or visit NHS UK.

We will keep you updated with any future information or advice as and when needed.

Please note, there is a poster on the notice board (above where the register is kept) which contains advice on the coronavirus.
