EXCITING NEWS FOR WRAPAROUND - UPDATE

Dear Parents / Carers

Over the last two weeks, we have been working tirelessly on our Wraparound Rooms. We have been working non-stop choosing and purchasing exciting, quality new equipment, furniture, toys and general resources for our present Wraparound room (which will be for our older wraparound children) and our New Wraparound Room (which will be for our younger wraparound children).

I have always enjoyed buying new equipment and setting up rooms throughout the entire 17 years that I have owned Brambly Hedge. It really does give me a real thrill to be doing all of this – I want and expect that we provide the highest possible standards throughout the entire nursery.

We have now placed nearly all the orders for this new equipment and enormous packages are arriving at the nursery on a daily basis. I will now be at the nursery over the next few days setting up these two rooms. I estimate that we will be spending a staggering £5,000 - £6,000 but it gives me so much pleasure knowing that our children will have a fantastic time in our two Wraparound Rooms.

All our staff are also very excited about what we are creating and they also are working so, so hard to ensure we offer absolute excellence in our Wraparound care. Virtually all equipment and resources will be ready and in place by the end of this week with the ‘finishing touches’ being done early next week.

WE HAVE NOT INCREASED OUR WRAPAROUND PRICES SINCE APRIL OF THIS YEAR AND WE GUARANTEE THAT THERE WILL BE NO COST INCREASES IN OUR WRAPAROUND CARE AND OUR HOLIDAY CLUB FOR THE REST OF 2017 AND DURING THE WHOLE OF 2018.

FREE 30 HOUR Funded Nursery Places in Castleford

We can also offer FREE funded nursery places at our nursery in Castleford to ALL children between the ages of 3 and 5 years and eligible 2 year olds.

REGISTER NOW FOR JANUARY 2018.

We have free 30 hour places available for 3 and 4 year olds (from the term after your child’s third birthday). You can choose the days and half days you require.

The demand for these places is going to be high as most other nurseries have very limited capacity and schools will not be offering these 30 hours free places. You can also ‘mix and match’, with 15 hours being taken at school and the remaining 15 hours being taken at Brambly Hedge. The Government’s conditions for these places are:-

  • Each parent should be earning no more than £100,000 per annum and each parent should be working a minimum of 16 hours per week (equivalent to the National Living Wage or the National Minimum Wage).
  • These conditions apply to single parents also.

Your child could start January 2018 (according to the date of their 3rd birthday).

We welcome you to visit us on a day and time that is suitable for you, or simply telephone us on 01977 604603 – but please act quickly before all our 30 hour places are taken. The Department for Education Statistics reveal that 10,000 fewer providers plan to offer the 30 hours, compared to those offering the existing 15 hours.

Our nursery is set in over one acre of gardens, woodlands and extensive, well maintained grassed areas, including our new meadow area. We have the biggest play area of all nurseries in Castleford.

The nursery is a single storey building allowing easy access for all. We have an excellent reputation within the local community for providing high quality care and learning in a happy and safe nursery environment. Brambly Hedge Day Nursery is registered and regulated by Ofsted in the category of children's nurseries for the care of babies and children from 0-5 years of age.
