😎 Summer Holiday Fun! 😎

Dear Parents and Carers,

With the summer holidays just around the corner we are delighted to publish our programme of activities.

We have lots planned to make it a really fun summer. My favourite (which I will make sure I’m on the rota for) is the alpaca experience where we will be able to walk some alpacas around the school field!

Other visitor activities include The Shropshire Wildlife Trust and a science worksop on rockets. Also the return of the very popular Arthog day, climbing up the tower and canoeing on The Mere.

We are also delighted to be participating in The HAF programme, providing food and holiday activities for children eligible to receive free school meals.

If you are not registered with Treetops you will need to complete a registration form and privacy notice as well as a summer booking form.

Printed forms are also available to collect from Treetops. Links below to print off your own forms at home.

Best wishes,

Julia and the team

Dear Parents,

We are now open for bookings for the summer holiday. Please click the link and read the attached newsletter for more details as there are some changes for this holiday.

There are two types of booking forms as we have been successful in gaining funding from the DfE. This is part of the Holiday Activities Fund (HAF) for children in receipt of free school meals. The funding covers a free packed lunch which will be provided by Jenny’s Catering Services. Parents will have a weekly menu to choose from to pick sandwich fillings, choice of fruit, crisps, yogurt etc.

If your child in not eligible for FSM you have the option of booking a packed lunch Monday to Thursday when the scheme is running. The cost will be £3.50 per lunch. Please tick the appropriate box on the booking form and you will be sent a menu order form nearer the time.

Please print the correct booking form for the type of session you are booking and return to Treetops. Hard copies are also available for collection.

Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

🌸 May Half Term 🌸

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are now taking bookings for the May Half Term Holiday. We will be open to all children, for the 4 days of the half term.

Our Easter Holiday programme of activities was a huge success and the children enjoyed our new cookery activities, The Nerf wars games with our new equipment was a hit, particularly with our older children.

May Half Term sees more cookery activities planned and and lots of art and craft along with our usual child led activities, playing outside and creating.

We will continue to follow the latest Covid19 advice from PHE and The DfE and if there are any changes to how we operated during the Easter Holidays we will keep you informed.

If you require childcare for this holiday please complete and return the attached booking form below.

🐣 Wider Opening and Easter Holidays 🐣

Dear Parents and Carers,

With all children returning to school on Monday 8th March we are looking forward to welcoming everyone back. Although we have remained open throughout this lockdown for  critical workers and vulnerable children there are many families we have not seen since before Christmas.

If your child uses our before or after school sessions the same sessions have been held open for them, unless you gave us notice to surrender your child’s place (as per our terms and conditions).

Please continue to observe social distancing guidelines and all other Covid restrictions when dropping off or collecting your child from Treetops.

Easter Holidays

We will be open to all children during the Easter holidays providing you need childcare to enable you to work, continue with education/training or attend a medical or support appointment. For the Easter holidays at least, you are not allowed to send your child for the purposes of socialising with other children. This will hopefully change for May half term providing the Covid levels continue to fall and we know many children have really missed being allowed to play with their friends.

If you require childcare over the Easter holidays, please complete and return the form below as soon as possible. Hard copies are available to collect from Treetops.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch via the Famly App, email, telephone or Facebook page.

👻 October Half Term & PD Day 👻

Dear Parents,

It has been lovely to see all our children back with us at the start of term and we welcome lots of new children too. With half term just over a month away we are now taking bookings for the half term week and the PD day on Friday 23rd October.

We will be open for full days 7.30am to 6pm and in addition to our Halloween based art and craft activities we have planned team games and sports outside where the weather allows us.

The robust measures we put in place for the summer holidays with additional cleaning, hand washing and splitting the children into two key stages are working well and will continue through the half term holiday in order to keep everyone safe.

Please click on the link below and complete the booking form if you require childcare during half term.

A reminder that we will not be open over the Christmas Holidays and finish at 6pm on Friday 18th December and re open for Before and After School on Tuesday 5th January 2021
