  1. My GDPR 'To Do' list

    Ok. Am truly panicked.im back to work on Monday to sort this. I did start Rebecca' s #1-12. It all started so well with the audit but i left out to deal with other "urgent" stuff. This mountain looks frighteningly rocky. Where do you stop with checking who holds data it could go on and on! Thank you all for keeping the conversations open. I will be digging in properly next week.
  2. Funding weeks

    Hi Rosabean and welcome. Same as Mouseketeer. 38 weeks not allowed inset days either. Think some settings were allowed to keep to fewer weeks if that was what they were doing before 15 hour stuff came in. (Lots of years ago) Or more recently I have heard of settings with falling numbers who have been allowed to cut weeks but tied into other conditions.
  3. Snow Plan

    We had quite a lot of snow yesterday and a bit of a blizzard. But it disappeared so quickly. Had to leave nurserybuilding to go stand alone shed /fridge to get milk leaving footprints. In the minute it took me to walk back all footprints were covered. My weather app told me to expect snow at 7.36 this morning but still no snow!! Hubby says years ago met office used to pay locals all over world to watch and report weather conditons so forecasting was quite accurate. However They have "restructured" and no longer have the weather watchers which is why it is back to simple prediction. So the wait and see approach is best. ❄❄❄⛄⛄
  4. Starting a holiday club, help needed!!

    Same here. I did notice our insurers are asking for 1:8 ratio so check that out too. We added ourselves to childcare register. Yes loos were a bit tricky but we have low doors so added a stable door type with a bolt to give more privacy. Just think about activities we found taking the children out for part of the day an essential. Just a trip on the bus, to the local park, we found the cinema ran a very cheap screening in the morning. The children loved their time with us.
  5. Inspection tomorrow eeeek

    Well done.
  6. It's the Bear - Jez Alborough. the pictures of the trees and what could be hiding behind them and the pretending of one popping out and then hiding again, always gives a lot of imagination. We have looked at height - what would be taller than those trees. Spacial awareness - where would you sit where a tree was not in the way, Emotions- would you be scared if it was a scary wood, natural habitats, would your Mummy really leave you in the wood to go back for Blueberry Pie? Love this story and its sequels.
  7. Calling any Inspectors

    Hello Just wondering if there is anyone here who is an inspector and who might give me some advice. Nothing that would cause conflict or alarm. Would have to be messaged though.
  8. newsletter function

    Oh me too. I email a weekly newsletter but not sure how many parents actulla look at it. But I can see when they access Tapestry so it would be brilliant new feature.
  9. I did see report come in and will read it by end of week. I do agree that whatever is in it will have impact on EY.
  10. Had the call

    Hope you are breathing easy now.
  11. Thank you for this. Makes sense about slope and colour of background. Think it is this kind of help I want to start with while I wait to get the other sevices in.
  12. Hi All Just looking for support with one of our little treasures. She is a rising 4 year old and has been wearing glasses since little. She had a check up yesterday and Mum is distraught. Her prescription has gone up 3 points in each eye with the right eye being more severe. The lenses of her glasses at present are really thick so can only imagine that the next pair are going to be thicker. This worries Mum. Little Treasure is bright and will play in all parts of the nursery, she is not too keen on noises but other than that she engages in everything. Mum reports that her left eye is doing all the work and that the patches have not worked so she is going to be putting eye drops in to stop the good eye working in the hope that the other eye will strengthen. My question is what can I do to support? I am imaging that by putting things to the left of her will mean that her right eye will have to track in that direction and will help strengthen the muscle. Would I be right in thinking this? I am going to google and find out more but thought that some of you may have had this experience and would like to share.
  13. Forum Update

    Not that I have used it that much but is there still a chat room?
  15. Forum Update

    Oh How lovely. I have been exploring for the last day or so (been away would you believe) but I think your words of shiny and new are exactly what has happened. Thank you to all you of you involved, you have done a great job.
