Dear Parents / Carers,

We are delighted to announce that baby Noah was delivered safely into the world this week. Well done Katie! Tessa is doing a fabulous job taking on the role of Deputy Manager in Katie’s absence.

Leanne is coming to the end of her Level 2 training and has agreed to stay on and commence her Level 3 training in September this year. In addition to that, Kezia has joined the team having completed her Level 2 training and will also commence her Level 3 training alongside Leanne in September.¬†Kezia is my daughter so she has had lots of experience with young children from a young age (for those that don’t know, Kezia and I lived upstairs above the nursery for the first 18 months after I bought it!) She has also been very involved with her younger brother since he was born 6 years ago. She has developed a mature approach to child care after he was born with Special Educational Needs.

Kelly is settling in well and the children love her and it feels like Jade A has never been away! We have appointed 1 new staff member to cover maternity leave when Jade F and Lauren go however we do still need to appoint another Nursery Practitioner. If you know of anyone or have a suitable place to advertise for us, please let us know and I can give you a poster to display.

I am also happy to let you know that due to popular demand, some of the staff team will be available to babysit for you. Please note that any babysitting must be done outside of nursery opening hours and is a private contract between yourselves and the staff member. For a full list of girls available, please check in the porch or ask Hannah. All girls will be charging £8 per hour for this service.

You will also notice that gradually some odd jobs are being completed around the nursery and this may leave it looking untidy for a while. I can assure you this is a necessity as we have limited time that work can be done (when the nursery is closed) For the closure week in August, we have the decorator booked to give the whole place a fresh look. We can’t wait! Thank you for bearing with me.

And lastly, as always, than you so much for your continued support. Don’t forget, if you introduce a new family and they start with us, you will receive one additional session for your child, free of charge as a way of thanking you!

Hannah and the Cranleigh Lodge Team.
