Rewind on Ratios

The Pre-School Learning Alliance, of whom we are a member, are organising a petition against the government’s recent announcement of changes to our working child to adult ratios.  Under government proposals this would mean fewer staff employed to look after the youngest of our children.

The Pre-School Learning Alliance has announced that their official government e-petition for parents against childcare ratios changes is now LIVE on the e-petition website –

‘We are aware that are a number of existing online petitions on this issue.  However, it is unfortunate that the Government has so far chosen to ignore the view of tens of thousands of practitioners.

Our Rewind on Ratios campaign gives parents a voice – and it is parents that we believe the Government is most likely to listen to.’ – Pre-School Learning Alliance

It’s important to note that this is the only official Government-recognised petition against the proposals. When the petition reaches 10,000 signatures, the Government must provide an official response. Once we reach 100,000 signatures, the topic will be considered for discussion in the House of Commons

We hope you will join us in supporting the Alliance’s Rewind on Ratios campaign and ask colleagues, family and friends to sign the e-petition over the next few weeks.

NB: As the e-petition site does not permit petitions in the name of organisations, the petition is in the name of Neil Leitch, Alliance chief executive.

Parents Evening

This week we will be having our annual Parent Evenings on Wednesday 6th & Thursday 7th March.  Any parent who has not already made an appointment but wish to do so should speak to Jayne to see if we can squeeze you in!

This is your chance to find out about all the amazing things your children get up to whilst at pre-school and what we have in store for them over the coming months.  All parents will get chance to have a look at their child's development file and speak to their child's key-person.  Jayne will also be available to chat with.

All appointment slots are 10 minutes long and we will do our utmost to ensure we run on time, your understanding and co-operation with this is greatly appreciated - thank you!
