Dear Parents, new starters and prospective families. We will be increasing our fees from June 2020 . The biggest change is the withdrawl of session pricing for the baby room. All bookings will now be charged by the hour or half hourly rate.
o Under 2’s – £5.50 per hour o 2-3 year olds – £5.15 per hour o 3-4 year olds – £4.90 per hour o Afterschool Club – £ 4.15 per hour
We are moving towards a flat rate for all ages which we hope will be in place in the next 2/3 years.
As from the end of the day on Friday 27th March 2020 Wizz Kids will be completely shut even to the children of key workers. Sorry for this inconvenience at what is already a worrying time.
If you are a key worker and require childcare at any time through this period of closure, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be able to sign post you to other provisions which have availability. You can contact us either via our normal email address firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone Alison on 07946 752 386.
We will be picking up emails on a daily basis but there will be NO landline available so please email us with any enquiries or use Alison`s mobile number if urgent.
Thank you once again for all your amazing support, we will miss you guys but hopefully with these new stringent boundaries in place we can get back to normal (if there ever will be such a thing again) as soon as possible.
Don’t forget to keep watching us on FB and Tapestry!
Dear Parents, we have set up a new facebook page to record songs, activities, news and stories for the staff while we are shut. If you would like to follow us, send an email with your fb details and we will send a friend request. All the staff are involved so it should be a great way of keeping some familiarity with Wizz Kids while we are shut. Please send posts too, we would love to see who you are all getting on and what`s keeping you entertained
Santander offer free enthusiastic helpers to lend a hand to local projects in their community. we were very grateful when a lovely team of volunteers recently spent the day at Wizz Kids in our outdoors area. They helped rejuvenate our outside space after winter, painting decking, the slide, tyres and blackboards, hanging blackboards, sweeping leaves and having a good tidy up. The team were all so willing to help and made a real difference so THANK YOU Santander and hopefully see you next year!
Wizz Kids Preschool is proud to support other charitable organisations throughout the year with special fundraising events. We are currently helping to raise awareness and funds for Ladybower fisheries to provide a unique 8 person wheelchair accessible boat to take groups of people out on the water of Ladybower reservoir.
We are selling two designs of colourful C5 size cards printed on quality card and left blank for your own message. The cards are painted by an amazingly talented little boy called Zak who is only 6 years old. Zak has numerous health issues including autism and has a real passion for Lancaster bombers, the reservoir and apple trees which he combines to produce colourful and poignant pictures. The cards are priced at £2.50 each and are on sale in our reception. Thank you for your support
We are always trying new and innovative ways of keeping our children engaged at nursery. Here are a few details of what we have been up to recently:
Veronika is teaching the children a session of core stability each week . This is similar to kiddy yoga and is a fun way to introduce children to planned exercise.
Forest school sessions are proving very popular with the children and staff and are being funded by Bee Funding at no extra cost to parents. Last week the children dug for worms to make a wormery and made bricks from torn up newspapers . We are planning to train our staff in forest schooling so we can continue the classes into the future.
We are focusing on teaching our children about STEM ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) We are always encouraging our children to learn outside so these two themes should work well to support each other. If you have any ideas for projects or activities please let us know!
Thank you for all your lovely artwork for our new outdoor signs. We are pleased to say that one of our children produced this stunning piece which was voted as the best . We look forward to seeing the new signs up in the new future – Well Done !
The NSPCC have launched a campaign called talk PANTS` to help parents raise awareness of sexual safety with their children. There is a video to watch with your child and support and guidance around this topic. More info here:
