New beginnings…

So, when a new term brings, we welcome new children and their families, we would like to start by welcoming Ebony, Ono, Effie-Devon, Oscar, Ashton, Finley, Florence, Arthur, Henry, Esmae, Harry, Mimi, Billy, Cali, Fletcher, Thea, Blu and Mila-Rae Winston and all their families under our wing, we can’t wait to begin creating memories with you all and watching you grow, learn and develop.

Our new normal….

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for your support over the summer period, it was a summer like no other, and one we wish to not repeat if possible. So with this in mind and with the guidelines now looking like they are going to be around for some time yet, can we remind you to remain socially distancing and adhere to the new law in place which remains currently…….

As previously stated we have been sheltered from it a lot down this end of the country but one case could have a huge knock on effect for our nursery and we would like to protect it from happening if possible. Everything we have put in place seems to be working really well so again we thank you for your continued support throughout this tricky time.

Exciting news…

We would like to share some positive news and something we hope will make you smile…..

We have booked Concept photography company (subject to the above) to come along and snap your gorgeous little ones. For those of you that have been with us a while will know that Concept photography are brilliant at what they do, (check out their website) and we are sure you will not be disappointed. Keep an eye out for next month’s newsletter for more information. Time slots will be allocated, and strict guidelines will be in place.

COVID-19 Tests…

Getting a test: We have been sending any children with covid symptoms to get a test, we understand this can be frustrating as it can present as a normal childhood cold, but we would rather be assured that we are running the healthiest nursery and keeping you all as safe as we possibly can so please bare with us.
We are aware there have been some issues when booking a test but we recommend parents or carers of children attending school should try and book a test as normal via the government website. However, if you are unable to book a local slot then you can email ccg.devon.urgenttesting@nhs.net making clear the test is for a child attending a setting and you will be supported to access local testing. We hope this helps.

Please remember we keep uniform in stock here at Dolphin and sizes start from 1-2 years. Ask the office for more information.

Just a quick reminder to keep your details up to date in the office, whether this is your address or phone number, please make sure we have the correct information in case of emergencies.

Our learning themes

We have started the term with ‘All about me’ this allows us to get to know all the new starters and their friends, we will be moving onto people who help us, which is always a firm favourite.

Lockdown has been an exciting time for some of our team with Elsa and Katie both expecting babies. It has been some very welcoming news from them after all the uncertainty and we could not be happier for them and their families. Congratulations to you both.

Team Updates…

With all the changes that 2020 has seen, this has also made us see a few changes between our staff. We thought it would be a lovely idea to do a who’s who and put a face to the names of the lovely team who look after your little ones.
