The Government have recently launched a new site 'Childcare Choices’ that brings together Government Childcare offers helping parents find the right childcare support for them. As part of the Childcare Choices they are introducing two new offers Tax Free Childcare to be introduced on 28th April and the 30 hours free childcare available from September.
The new Childcare Choices website provides information on the new and existing Government childcare offers and will help parents to decide on the options that are best for them and to confirm their eligibility for assistance with childcare costs.
In February, the children at The Old School House Kindergarten have been celebrating Valentine’s Day by exploring different creative activities, and the charity ‘’guess how many heart sweets in the jar” event raised £33.00. The children have enjoyed pancakes on Shrove Tuesday. We have also been dressing up as our favourite book characters, as well as bringing in stories from home to celebrate World Book Day. In March, parents/carers and family members have joined us for some lunch and we have just been fundraising for Comic Relief, and participated in Silly Sock Day 2017 as part of our Good Beginning Award and have raised over £370 for Autism Anglia.
April is National Pet month and we have invited some family pets to come and meet us and all of the rooms are exploring all the different animals you could keep as a pet. The pre-school children will be watching and waiting for our chicks to hatch.
