Welcome back. We hope you all had a good break over the holidays. You have probably noticed that we are a lot busier this term with new starters,children moving across from Tinies and others increasing their hours.Meg is now in Tiddlers in the mornings instead of the afternoons and our new member of staff, Sophie, is working across both rooms this term to help with the increased numbers.
This week we had a visit from a local dental practice. The children listened as she explained the importance of looking after their teeth. This was a great experience for them to learn about different occupations and healthy practices. We are hoping to do more visits in the future. If you have a skill/occupation that you would like to share with the children please let us know.
Thank you for all of the returned questionnaires. We are really pleased with the responses and will be having a good look at any suggestions/comments given. If you have any questions or concerns about what we do at Tiddlers we are happy to explain.Please ask a member of staff at drop off or pick up or you can send me a message on Dojo. 
Thank you for your continued support. We are all looking forward to a busy (hopefully sunny) summer term!
