We will always go outside at least twice a day so ask that your child is appropriately dressed for the weather ie. Hats/mittens and a warm coat in cold weather, suncream and hats (we do have Pre-School sunhats too) in summer term. Staff are able to apply suncream, with a permission slip. On very rainy days to enable us to take the children to the field and wildlife area we have all-in-one wet weather gear and some spare wellies, but if your child can bring in their own wellington boots that would be appreciated. Please can we ask that all items are clearly labelled with your child's name, especially shoes and wellingtons.
As a rural setting we use the outside environment for both Pre-school and older children, we jump, kick and throw on the big school field as well as balance and climb two adventure playgrounds, we also visit the local village play area.
We take the safety of the children as a top priority, we have rigorous Safeguarding policies and appropriately trained staff. Where necessary we have risk assessments and carry a first aid kit at all times when away from the hall. On entry all parents are asked to sign an image permission form for their child as well as a mobile phone policy.
If your child has prescribed medicine that needs to be administered by a staff member you will be asked to fill out the following form.
A range of healthy option are available at Breakfast Club according to your child's taste; toast, fruit, unsweetened cereal, eggs and pancakes.
Pre-school snacks and lunch
Our healthy Leap into Life physical sessions are complimented by healthy snacks and weekly cooking activities.
Your child will be offered a wide range of fruit and crackers/toast with a choice of milk or water.
The children bring packed lunches which they eat between 12.00 and 12.45 and on certain days have the option of purchasing a hot meal through Ugborough Primary School (menu).
To follow our Healthy Eating policy we would ask that no chocolate or sweets are included in packed lunches. To keep the contents chilled we would ask you to include a freezer pack. It is also important that you avoid nut products such as peanut butter and sesame products due to any potential allergies. We thank you for your understanding. If your child has any allergies please let us know and we will work with you on this.
After School Club
At After-school Club your child will be offered a healthy snack with fruit and drink at approx. 3.45pm, and a healthy tea at 5.00pm with vegetables. We will discuss the menu with your child and welcome their suggestions.
