Previous Fields

  • Your interest in Foundation Stage education
    Nursery practitioner
  1. Just had an email from Sainsbury's to say they aren't running their Active Kids scheme any more, but if you have banked any vouchers, you can still use them, so get looking to see what you can 'spend' them on
  2. Coping with change

    Just one small thought............................don't forget that some people aren't being stubborn, or resistant......................for some, change IS very difficult.Routine and a regular ways of doing things are really important. Think of it this way, a friend of mine has just been diagnosed as having Asperger's syndrome. It suddenly explains a lot of things ( he's in his 50's)............and his lifelong need for routine and things to be done in a certain way. He had no idea that he was on the Autistic spectrum, it arose because of a problem at work. So, people may not realise. It's just a thought, but as we would consider our children..........let's not forget our adults too. Discussion and working together is always the way forward
  3. Pre school constitution

    At my old setting, it was signed each year to show that the new committee were aware of it and agreed it
  4. Time stamp on observations

    Yes, I can see that it would be useful to be able to turn it off
  5. AGM Question

    Staff were always welcome at my old setting, so they could take part in discussions, even though they couldn't vote. Also nice for parents to be able to say thank you at the AGM...and for staff to return the thanks. We were never forced to go, though as leader, I always gave a short talk about what we'd acheived over the year and gave my thanks to other staff, volunteers and committee, then talked about our hopes for the coming year
  6. Outdoor equipment

    Never be worried about me
  7. Outdoor equipment

    patience is a virtue..............................patience my tinselled angels...................... yes, Community Playthings have a great range of outdoor blocks, water trays, chutes and funnels............they will last you for years (but you KNEW I'd say that )
  8. which bank account

    Barclays.............other banks are available .
  9. Are you taking in ironing?

    Really?? I haven't got any money, but my hair looks absolutely STUNNING'!!
  10. To stay or go

    You have to do what is best for YOU. If you said you would stay until a new chair is found............guess what?? Everyone will sit back and let you. You say that your family life is suffering................and I would say, to a certain extent, family life suffers for all of us involved in childcare . Sometimes, you have to take a deep breath, stay calm and just say NO. No more, no more me, no thanks. If parents want the setting to continue, then they have to step up to the plate.......but it doesn't have to be you, especially as your hubby has changed his work....another thing that will impact on your family. Stay on the committee if that feels right, so you can offer advice and the benefit of your experience. But put you, and your family first x
  11. Powder paint

    They do.................look for cellulose paste. 10 bags for £7.39, plus vat but free postage...........a pack goes an awfully long way
  12. Powder paint

    yes, wallpaper paste, but make sure it has no antifungicide in it. so you want cellulose paste powder....................consortium used to sell it
  13. it doesn't matter to me whether parents are paying, or if staff are being paid, or are voluntary...............you set it up and accept children in, then you provide activities to suit all ages. What a horrid approach!
  14. Funding

    Maybe that's the problem.........................I AM old..........old enough to believe in honesty, integrity and fair play
  15. Funding

    finleysmaid................you know it, we know it,I know it.............but if parents are frightened into it, how do we combat it? By packing up and getting a job stacking shelves in a supermarket I fear.........
