Transition from 2’s Group – Ante Pre School
Children at 2’s group follow the Aberdeenshire school academic year. If your child is moving on to a funded Ante Pre School setting they are welcome to stay on at Woodside 2’s group until their funded place begins. Children not moving on to an Ante Pre School setting will be asked to give up their 2’s group place when they would have been expected to start at Ante Pre School in order to let new 2’s group children begin.
Responsibilities of parents/carers
In the interests of all children, we ask that children whom are unwell should not attend 2s group for a minimum of 48 hours subsequent to any illness. You are not required to inform 2’s group that you cannot attend a session due to illness.
Please let us know of any allergies or illnesses that your child may have. We will support in any way possible, however, it is the parent/carers responsibility to manage any allergies/illnesses
Depending on weather conditions children may be outside for part of the session. Please bring suitable clothing and footwear and if necessary apply sun screen.
All parents/carers will be asked to take a turn on duty. There will be a rota list on the notice board. When on duty parents/carers will be asked to prepare snack, wash dishes and assist with tidying up afterwards.
Healthy snacks are provided every session along with a drink of milk or water. Please let us know of any allergies.
It is our aim to have a happy safe environment, promoting positive behaviour.
We sometimes take photographs through the year of different events that take place i.e. Christmas parties, picnics and walks. If you do not wish to have your child’s picture taken please inform your 2's group leader.
We are a non-profit making organisation with charitable status. In order to replace and repair equipment, cover the cost of essential supplies and expenses such as insurance premiums, fundraising is essential and so you will probably be asked to participate in fundraising activities from time to time and we hope that you will support our efforts to maintain the standard of provision we offer your child.
