20th March - Such an emotional day for lots of parents today as we close our doors to all but a few. We will be thinking of you all and updating on both here and via email.  As soon as we get news we will share it.  We don’t know when we will be able to open to all again but I think when we do we should have some kind of re opening event so that all of you can attend.  Let’s all have something to look forward to at the end of all this. Stay safe everyone

 

18th March - We are open as usual.  We are taking extra precautions and there is a list on the wedge at the setting of all the extra things we are doing to keep everyone as safe as possible.  Please follow the advice given regarding self isolating if you have any of the symptoms on the NHS webpage and notify us if you are keeping your child off. Thank you for all your support at this difficult time.

 

We have begun to offer out our places for September 2020, if you have changed your email or phone number since putting your child's name on our waiting list please let me know.  If you are looking for a space from September 2020 please email us for an application form.  We offer spaces on a first come first served basis within a criteria given on our admissions policy, ordered by the date in which we received the completed form.

Little Fishes @ St Peter’s have taken the opportunity to join the Operation Encompass scheme which will run jointly between local early years settings, schools, Surrey Police and Surrey County Council.  Operation Encompass has been designed to provide early reporting on any domestic incidents that occur outside of ‘normal’ school hours and might have an impact on a child in their setting.   Operation Encompass will ensure that the settings’ Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) or deputy DSL, is informed the next morning that there has been a domestic incident or if a child has been reported as missing.  Through sharing this information with the DSL and/or deputy DSL the setting can ensure that the child/ren are supported in the most appropriate way.  For more information click here
