Roundabout Pre-School

Newsletter

August 2021

We hope you are enjoying summer and are having some lovely days out! We look forward to seeing the children (and you) again for the Autumn half term, so here is some information ahead of the new Academic Year.

Start and finish times

Roundabout pre-School will be open from 9.00am until 3.00pm when we return on Tuesday, 7th September. Please remember that Monday, 6th September is a School Training Day and there will be no session that day.

We will also be allowing parents back into the building for drop off and pick up. You may find that some staff will be wearing a mask at drop off and pick up times, depending on the infection rate within the community in September.

(You will be informed prior to Roundabout returning in September, should the government make any national or local changes relating to COVID-19.)

School starters

We do still have spaces available for September, so if your child is starting school later in September and you are looking for childcare until they are joining the Reception Class at their Primary School, please contact us. We will be able to offer morning and/ or afternoon sessions at £12.50 per session until your child starts school.

Furthermore, if you know of any families who are looking for a pre-school place then please signpost them to our website (www.roundaboutpreschool.org.ukor ask them to email us: roundaboutplaygroup@yahoo.co.uk.

Fundraising

Do you buy regularly from Amazon? If so, you can now select Roundabout Pre-School as your chosen charity. AmazonSmile, a separate portal from Amazon's main site, offers the same items, prices, and benefits as Amazon.com, but with one distinct difference: 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases will go to the charity of your choice. As you may have noticed, we have not been able to fundraise as in previous years; funds which bought equipment like the water tray or paid for the reading shed in the past.

We would be grateful if you (and grand-, godparents, aunts, uncles and friends who would like to give to Roundabout in this way) would bookmark www.smile.amazon.co.uk on your device. Once signed into AmazonSmile, you will be prompted to pick a charity; please search for Roundabout Pre-School Ltd (in Leeds) and select it as your chosen charity. There is no cost to Roundabout or you as the customer and 100% of the donation generated from eligible purchases goes to your chosen charity. For frequent Amazon users, this is a great way to give effortlessly to charity.
