We are always battling to keep our childcare fees as low as possible while still providing the highest quality of childcare that your little-ones deserve. However, due to our running costs continuing to rise, you can appreciate that we are now forced to increase our fees by a minimal amount in order to cover these increasing costs. This price increase will begin from April 2018. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
We would like to briefly inform parents of updates regarding data protection.
GDPR comes into effect 25 May 2018
Main differences from current Data Protection Act:
§Under the Data Protection Act 1998, you were deemed compliant until there was a breach
§Under the GDPR, you must be able to evidence you are compliant from 25 May 2018
§Personal data is re-defined to include IT advances such as IP addresses and retina scanning, for example
§Greater emphasis on consent; you are no longer able to assume consent
•§Greater information governance and security
§Significantly increased fines for data breaches
Therefore we are reviewing our processes, policies, and procedures regarding data, and parents are welcome to view our updated Policy held in the nursery office.
Children's Easter Fun Day
Wed 28th March, 1pm - 4pm
Children aged up to 5 years old! Everyone is Invited!
We'll be having an Easter Egg Hunt, Making Easter Bonnets, Egg Decorating, Making Hot Cross Buns, and more fun activities and games!
FULLY BOOKED - don't worry if you missed out, we will be having more fun days and events through the year!
We would like to welcome our children back to nursery for the start of the Spring 2018 term! And for those children joining Whizz Kidz for the first time, welcome!
Some key dates for this term are:
Half-term holiday: 12 February to 16 February 2018
Easter holiday: 30 March to 13 April 2018
Note: Good Friday is on 30 March and Easter Monday is on 2 April 2018
Funded-only children will not attend during the term holidays. However please keep in mind that the nursery operates all year-round, so private nursery sessions are still available during holiday times, please ask in the office for details.
All About “Me”
This term we will be covering the topic All About “Me” with the children. It would be much appreciated if you could please bring in photos from home that we can use to cover this topic! Thanks!
Valentine’s Day, Pancake Day, and Easter
We have various occasions that fall during this term, including Valentine’s Day, Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday), and Easter. We will be carrying out various activities and games with our children over the course of the term to celebrate these respective events (and of course we will be making pancakes!).
Also, we will keep you posted about our Easter Egg Hunt that we plan to hold on Wednesday 28th March 2018. The Easter Egg Hunt will be open to ALL children, no matter if they attend our nursery or not. Details of this will follow closer to the time.
We are now taking babies (under 2 years) at our Carshalton branch. Please spread the word!
We will give you one FREE session for your referral
As an incentive to reward our parents for their help in promoting Whizz Kidz, if you refer a friend to us who then takes up a nursery place, we will reward you for your “marketing” by giving you one FREE nursery session (subject to availability) as a way of saying thank you!
15 hours funding (Universal or Extended), not 30 hours
Just a reminder that we will NOT be offering 30 hours funding, but we will continue to offer 15 hours funding (Universal or Extended). This has been explained already several times, but we are still getting enquiries about it. Unfortunately, the rate the government pays us for your “free” 30 hours funding doesn’t cover the cost of the childcare and would actually leave us short of money and unable to pay our staff and bills. Unless the rate of pay for the 30 hours from the government increases, we simply cannot afford to offer it without going out of business, sorry.
Leaving without notice
Sadly we must remind that if you withdraw your child from nursery, whether this is for a school nursery place or whatever reason it might be, you absolutely MUST give us notice in writing beforehand, as stated in your contract within the nursery application form that you all sign when you register with us. You will still be liable for fees incurred during and leading up to your notice period.
We are very excited for how much fun we’re going to have this Spring Term, and we hope you are excited too!
Just a quick note to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. And a big Thank You to everyone for coming to Meet Santa at the nursery!
The last day for term-time-only children is Wednesday 20th December 2017. The nursery will still be open for private childcare until Friday 22nd December 2017.
The nursery will then be closed until after the new year, with Wednesday 3rd January 2018 being the first day back for all children.
