Your child will be provided with a healthy snack and fresh milk or water free of charge. We ask that you bring a drink for your child in a named bottle so that they can help themselves during the session-no fizzy drinks are allowed. In order to support language development, we ask that you provide your child with a bottle that does not have a teat. Formula milk will not be given to your child.
Lunch time Only for full time places
You will need to provide your child with a healthy lunch with varied items suitable for their age. If you need some support or ideas please ask. We cannot heat up food however you can provide warm food in a thermos container. Children that stay for lunch will have lunch together in the classroom supported by lunch time practitoners.
Outdoor play is encouraged in our secure play area in all weathers, so please dress your child appropriately. In extreme cold or hot weather, we monitor the time spent outside and adjust outdoor pay accordingly.
We also have water and other messy pay activities in the garden. (Please see the next section for information on this).
We encourage lots of messy play as children gain a lot from this. We provide aprons for your child but this is no guarantee that your child will stay clean! So please bear this in mind when you are packing your child's bag for school and ensure they have enough changes of clothes in their bag, this includes underwear.
If your child is toilet trained or in the process of toilet training please put your child in clothes that are easy for us and them to manage (elasticated waists are also great)! Please also supply a few changes of clothes for your child in a named bag.
If your child is in nappies you will need to supply the pre-school with nappies and wipes in a named bag.
We will work with you and your child when the time is right to support the transition from nappies to toilet. When this time comes we ask you provide extra clothes and shoes whilst your child is training.
Charges are in place until the term after your child turns 3. (Unless you are eligible for 2 Year Old Funding.)
The costs are:
Extra Hours: £6
You will be issued a letter with a personal pin number for Parent Pay, which will enable you to make these payments. If you have any form of childcare vouchers these can also be used, just let us know the scheme you are signed up to. Payment must be made on or by the first day of each week your child attends.
For example, if your child’s first day is a Monday, you would pay for all of the sessions that week on the Monday, if your child’s first day is on a Thursday, you would pay for all of the sessions that week on the Thursday. Payments can also be made monthly in advance.
If you are experiencing any financial difficulties please do not hesitate to come in and speak to us.
Deposits for Teeny Townies
Due to government legislation, we do not request deposits for those children accessing funded hours only. Therefore, if your child only attends this setting for the funded hours allocated to them, no deposit will be required.
A non-refundable deposit of £20 (per child) is to be paid to the pre-school once their place has been confirmed.
This is to secure your child's place.
No reductions will be made for sickness, holiday or any other absence.
In the event that your child will be absent from school, you are asked to call the school on 0208 560 5701 to report the absence.
We also require four week’s notice if your child is leaving Teeny Townies.
Sessions run from Monday-Friday, timings are below.
Morning sessions, 8:45am – 11:45am
Afternoon sessions, 12:45pm – 3:45pm.
Full days, 8:45am - 3:45pm. (These are offered depending on the child's age. If this is of interest to you, please contact the Pre-School Manager Miss Deade.
Please make sure that you are on time to pick your child up as children can get very distressed if they are picked up late. We do understand that sometimes this can’t be helped due to circumstances, in this case we ask that you phone the school as soon as possible. Lateness could also result in a charge.
Teeny Townies has a lockable buggy store so you can leave your child’s buggy, bike or scooter safely inside as it will be locked at the beginning of every session and opened at the end of every session.
Teeny Townies will be accessible in the mornings by both the front gates (Twickenham Road) and the back gates (Linkfield Road). However, when collecting your child from the morning session or dropping off for the afternoon session, you will only be able to gain entrance through the front gates.
