Email Addresses & Contact details
It’s great that we can now keep in touch more through emails, this is ensuring that parents always get any messages and up to date invoices. We will also be starting to email what the weekly learning focus will be for each room. I apologise if you are getting duplicate emails as the system is new this is something we need to sort.

Fees
Our operational policy states that all fees are due in advance or before the end of the month. It is the end of the financial year March 2014; therefore all fees for 2013-2014 must be paid.
Childcare Vouchers – Are a great way of making savings on childcare, may I remind parents that we do not give refunds on accounts which are in credit. Please ensure that you manage your vouchers so that this does not happen.

Only Dots n Spots cameras are used to take photographs of the children and we also have a work mobile for use on outings or when the children are on the MUGA. We do not allow devices to be brought in from home. We will be purchasing a Tablet for the club children to use and they also have the Xbox, playstation and Wii.

Family Photographs
All rooms have a display board for the children to display photographs of their family members. Please ensure you provide one for your child as the children love to look at them throughout the day.
