Scallywags Playgroup Newsletter - September 2018

New Areas

With the money we raised from our sponsored toddle we have been busy over the summer creating a new book area in the main part of the room and a cosy den for our ‘Caterpillars’. We are so pleased with them and are sure the children are going to love them. So please take a look as it has only been possible to do them because of all your support.


Toys from Home

We are aware that some children have special toys/ blankets they cannot bare to be parted from and, whilst they are settling in these things are welcome to join your child at playgroup. We would ask that other toys be kept at home to avoid them getting lost or broken


Contact Numbers

Please can you let us know if any of your contact numbers or addresses have changed over the summer holidays.
Also, If for any reason you will not be contactable on your usual numbers during a Particular session, please ensure that you give an alternative contact number to a member of staff.


Childs Clothing

We ask that children be dressed in play clothes that they can move in easily and you don’t mind them getting dirty. Please ensure all removeable clothing is named and that trousers are easy for them to pull down themselves when they need the toilet. We have polo shirts for sale at £8 and sweatshirts £9.


Open Door Policy

Here at Scallywags we operate an open door policy, meaning that Keyworkers are always available to speak if and when you need to. You do not have to wait until our parents’ evenings. Letters will be going out shortly informing you who your child’s keyworker will be.


Dates to follow shortly

  • Annual General Meeting (AGM)
  • Parent Review Evening

  • Half Term
    Scallywags will be closed week commencing 29th October 2018.

Early Years Foundation

As from September 2012 we have been working from the revised Early Years Foundation Stage. You can get more information on this if you go to or a copy of the parents guide is on display on our notice board.

Welcome back everyone! We hope that you all had an exciting and fun filled summer holiday and are ready and refreshed for the new school year. We extend a warm welcome to all our new parents, carers and children. Please let us know if you require further information on any aspect of the information contained in the newsletter or daily routines and procedures. Over the next 8 weeks our theme will be ‘All about Me’. The first few weeks we will be concentrating on settling all of the children into the setting, making them feel part of the group and talking about what they have been doing over the holidays.
