January 2019

Happy New Year everyone! We hope you had a lovely Christmas break with your families and we are looking forward to another busy term at Start Right.

Boots, Indoor Shoes and Spare Clothes

Please could you ensure that all of your child's wellington boots and indoor shoes are named so that we can reunite any lost property with the correct owner. Please also ensure that your child is wearing socks. A set of spare clothes for each session would be appreciated.

Forest School

Our Forest School venture has started very well with Hannah and her team leading varied and exciting sessions in our new forest school area and yurt. Please note that if your child is attending an afternoon session, they will not be available for collection until 4 pm.

If you arrive late for an afternoon session, and there is no one to let you into the main house, please call Hannah on her Start Right mobile and she will come and collect your child from the front garden. Her number is 07565 934028.

If your child does stay for the afternoon session, please bear in mind that they may be outside for the whole afternoon. Please can you ensure that they are suitably dressed for the outside including warm socks, especially in this current cold weather.


In the morning sessions, a full assessment is made of each child's progress. This contributes to their online learning journal on Capture and is printed out for you in their end of term book.

Forest School will provide a weekly summary of activities in your Capture account to that you can enjoy seeing the range of options available for your child in any particular week.

Opening hours

We have decided to extend our opening hours so that we will now be open from 8 am until 6 pm every day during term time. Please contact Helen if you wish to change any bookings that you have already made.

30 Hours Funded Childcare

If your child qualifies for 30 hours funded childcare from the Council, please ensure that you update your status every three months to ensure that you continue to receive the funding.

If you are newly eligible for this funding, please speak to Helen as soon as possible with your funding code and National Insurance number. Any queries, please speak to Helen.

Mobile Phones and Photographs

Please be aware that our policy is not to allow anyone to take photographs of any children on their mobile phones while at Start Right.

Nappies and Pull Ups

If your child still wears nappies or pull ups, please make sure that you bring some spare ones with you and leave them in your child's red bag.


Please make sure that only your child's boots (with their name on them) go in the bucket when you arrive. Everything else, including coats, spare clothes etc should be put into the red bag and brought into Start Right by your child.


• We would appreciate a telephone call if your child is ill. If they have been sick, please make sure you do not bring them back to Start Right for at least 48 hours.

• Please complete the form in the absence book (on the Reception table) if your child is away due to sickness or holiday.

• If your child needs to take any medicine whilst at Start Right please ensure you complete and sign the short/long term administration of medicine form, available from a member of staff.

• Please ensure that Start Right is informed of all people authorized to pick up your child after sessions and let a member of staff know if a relative or friend is collecting your child, especially if it is the first time.

• If your child brings lunch in to Start Right, please ensure that you include a cool pack in their lunch box and that you do not pack anything which contains nuts. Please also ensure that grapes and cherry tomatoes are cut in half.

• Please inform us of any changes to your circumstances or contact details, or any changes you wish to make to your child’s sessions by email or a letter.


Thank you for all your continuing help and support.



Caryll and Peter and the staff team.
