The so called “30 hours”
Application deadline for 30 hours this autumn term
If you want to start taking 30 hours subsidised childcare for the start of the Summer Term starting in April 2018, you need to have applied through Childcare choices on or before 328th February 2018.
Remember, before we can offer your child any free hours, we have to check and confirm the eligibility code with Surrey.
Our New Room
Our new room is completed and in use. It has been an exciting journey to get to this point, and we hope your children are enjoying the new space.
We are now looking for names for our four rooms; if you have any suggestions, please let us know!
Menus and mealtimes
According to the Children’s Food Trust, children can be fussy about the foods they eat, and food neophobia (fear of new foods) is common in children aged under five years. Therefore, we give children regular and repeated chances to taste new foods to increase their likelihood of tasting new foods.
We have been encouraging children to be independent in serving themselves, so that can they learn to select portion sizes according to their preferences, with an option for a second helping if they wish. Ellyn Satter, "How to Handle Picky Eaters" explains that children should learn to be responsible for what and how much they eat.
Schools and moving on...
Please be reminded that we do offer a wrap-around service to Earlswood school and nursery classes. If you would like further information about these timings and costs - please let us know.
