Mother Hubbards Childcare Ongar Newsletter

September 2010

Welcome to our first newsletter of the new school year.  This month we would like to welcome all of the new children who started with us at the beginning of September and their parents.  We hope you are all very happy here at Mother Hubbards.  

Happy Birthday
This month we would like to wish the following children a very big Happy Birthday:

  • Aoibhe in baby room turning 1
  • Loiza  and Kate in junior Montessori, both turning 3
  • Lara Murray in Junior After School will be turning 4

We use the opportunity to say big congratulations to our area manager, Catherine and her family on the arrival of their new baby boy. We wish them all the happiness.

  • We would like to remind parents that if you have not brought in a spare set of clothes for your child could you do so as soon as possible. It is very important that we have them in case of emergency. The following clothes should be provided a t-shirt, sweater, underpants, trousers, socks and a vest. After school children are encouraged to bring in a change of clothes so they can change out of their uniforms.  Please remember to label all your child’s belongings and school bags to prevent mix up.
  • We would also like to remind all parents that children should not bring in their own toys to crèche. As you can understand we do not want children’s toys to go home damaged in any way and bringing them in can cause great confusion to other children who think they belong to the crèche. This can cause unwanted bickering and unease amongst the children.
  • We also want to remind some parents who have borrowed booster seats from the crèche to please return them as we need all seats now for school runs.
  • A lots of clothing items have been left behind in the crèche for sometime now. We are requesting parents to check out these items to see if any belongs to them. The boxes containing the items are in the downstairs hallway and will be kept for another month, after which they will be sent to charity organisations. Thank you.

Information: Internet Safety Tips for Parents
It is coming up to the start of a new academic year and technology is everywhere around us in computers, iphones, ipods and  ipads, just to name a few! While technology is a useful tool, we also need to be careful that it is being used appropriately by children and that they are aware of the potential dangers and pitfalls.  For more information on this, please visit :
