Booklet for Parents and Carers
 
Below is the most up to date version of the very useful booklet from the Department for Education, explaining how children develop, play and learn in the Early Years both at home and in their settings. It explains the guidance all settings must use to organise learning and care for children and the different areas of learning we will be covering. It is quite a long document but it's laid out in a helpful format. At the very back there is a useful list of websites for parents.
 
We hope you find it helpful. Please let us know if you would like any further information. 
 
Packed Lunches and Choking Hazards 
 
Please remember to make sure that your child does not bring any products containing nuts to school for their packed lunch as this can cause an allergic reaction in some people. 
Below is a helpful list regarding the safe preparation of foods to prevent choking in young children and babies. Please consider the suggestions when you select food for your child’s lunch. 
Thank you.
