Our Staff Team
The Roundabout team will begin transition reports for those children leaving us in July. It would be great if all parents make their child’s key worker aware of what school their child will be attending.
For those children staying on at Roundabout; please can parents confirm sessions with Sophie as soon as possible and if wanting to make any changes then please do so soon as possible due to sessions beginning to fill up very quickly.
Thanks again to all staff, volunteers and the committee for all their support.
Roundabout’s website has gone through a few changes and is now up and running for everyone to have a look at. We have also included policies for you to read through that all our staff and committee follow.
Coming up..........+ read more
Roundabout will be involved in this year’s Horsforth Gala; 28th June. It would be great if had volunteers to support us on the day. There will be a form for you to sign at Roundabout to let us know of the times you are available. On the day our stall will include a tombola, face painting and a book stall. This is a great way for us to promote Roundabout!
Although we no longer follow strict ‘topics’ or ‘themes’ within the room (preferring to be led by children’s natural interests), we still aim to raise the children’s awareness of what is going on in our own country and around the world. As you all know the World Cup is upon us and we hope to incorporate many areas of learning in our activities about other countries.
Roundabout staff and committee are hoping to hold an end of year disco for all children. It would be great to see everyone there. Dates and times will be confirmed as soon as possible and Sophie will inform parents when confirmed.
The Alien Project has been a great success for all children. It has been great to see everyone getting involved in all activities and working together as teams. We will continue to create projects like this at Roundabout. Staff found children have learnt a great deal and activities planned have covered many sections of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage).
Whatever the weather......
Please can all parents and carers ensure that your children come to Roundabout with all the necessary kit! We play outside in all weathers and it is completely in the children’s hands when they go outside – wellies, gloves, hats and scarves, etc make the whole process more enjoyable for all concerned, and we don’t have a lot of spares! Please label all items clearly.
However, it is getting warmer and all children must attend Roundabout with a sun hat and sun cream (please sign the application form at the front table at drop off times).
Calling all Volunteers!
We would love to see more parent volunteers at Roundabout – if you have the time please let us know. No amount of time is too small and we would always organise sessions to suit you – as little or as often as you would like. Our fabulous volunteer, Nanna Sue, comes to play twice a week and both the staff and the children benefit massively from her being there. So thank you Nanna Sue!
The children often engage in conversations on what people who are close to them do for a living. If you feel you would like to share your professional knowledge/hobbies or interests with our group of interested 2,3 and 4 year olds, then please see Sophie, Carrie or your child’s key person. We can guarantee that the children would be a gentle audience!
Updating our info
Please would all parents ensure that we have the correct contact details for all those who are named as contacts for the children within our care. It is vital that we can contact you efficiently should the need arise.
Can all parents please complete a safeguarding refresher form for their child’s file to keep staff/volunteers up to date of who drops off and collects their child.
SCRAP PAPER NEEDED! ALL DONATIONS WELCOME!
Bertie the Bear
Bertie the Bear has now met the majority of our children and he’s been getting up to quite a lot. It’s great to see what he gets up to and for children to share their time with Bertie at circle time. He’s a popular little guy!
