Powerful message ....
Hi All, Ashleigh has just finished her first 3 days at infant school and she has absolutely loved it. She even told me earlier “Mummy I had another lovely day at school today”.
Thank you all so much for getting her ready for school and taking such good care of her.
Can’t thank you all enough 😘###
That’s the way to do it!

🥗 SALAD TIME! 🥗

From our recent parent questionnaire, we recognised that some parents suggested a bigger variety of healthier foods for the children to try during meals …

SO … we’ve listened and taken action 👂🏻🗣

This week we introduced the children to our new “salad bar” which is set up in the children’s side of the kitchen during lunch time with a variety of vegetables for the children to choose from to add to their plates 🥬🥕🍅🫑

To make this even better, the children have been helping Tasha to chop and cut up the vegetables ready for lunch, learning how to use knives safely and practicing using one-handed tools! 🍴

The children have also enjoyed having salad bowls on their tables which has encouraged them to talk about healthy eating during lunch time with their friends and key person 🥒🌽🫒

What vegetables do you think we should add to our salad bar for your children to try next? 🙂👍🏼

🌟⭐️ EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH! ⭐️🌟

We are excited to announce that our Employee of the Month for June is ...

KRISTINA! ❤️

Kristina received lots of lovely feedback from parents commenting on how helpful, supportive and kind she is to both the children and parents. It is lovely to see that Kristina has been recognised for the fantastic relationships she has created with her key children and their families and for being a wonderful person! 😁🥰

Today was the Andover Climate Day of Action - Andover Vision Test Valley Borough Council

We were fortunate enough to be asked by two of our parents to get involved with the day by making some wildflower seed balls with the children to help the bees! 🌾🎋🌷

We have had SO much fun getting very messy with this activity and are so proud of what we have managed to make! We have even dropped and planted some on our Nature Garden!

We have been and will be sending these home with the children. All you need to do is just drop them on some soil and eventually you have some lovely wildflowers to help the bees to thrive 🐝

This week our theme has been “babies!” 👶🏼

As you may have seen already, today was Chloe’s last day before a well deserved break before her gorgeous little girl arrives 💕

Today both the children and staff enjoyed throwing Chloe a small “baby shower” style party which included a photo booth and LOADS of presents! Before lunch, we all sat down together in the garden to give Chloe her presents and card and wished her all the best! 👶🏼🥰

We will all miss you Chloe but can’t wait to meet your baby girl once she’s arrived and smother her in lots of Finkley love ❤️🌈

🤹🏻‍♀️🎪 JAY MILLER’S CIRCUS! 🎪🤹🏻‍♀️

Today we had an absolutely FANTASTIC day visiting Jay Miller’s Circus for an exclusive performance 👏🏻

Before we visited the circus, all the children and staff had face paint done to get into the circus spirit 🎨 and then on return, we had a special party lunch for our children who’s birthdays are in June which included a circus themed popcorn pudding 🍿

If you are looking to visit Jay Miller’s Circus as a family, we would highly recommend it! They are brilliant 🤩⭐️

Public Health Consultation 2021 16/06/2021

Public Health Consultation 2021

🌈 PLEASE READ BELOW! 🌈

One of our parents asked us to share the following ...

This is long but please read on: Hampshire County Council launched a public consultation on the 14th June 2021 to cut £2.09m from the Health Visiting and School Nursing budget (Public Health budget) for Hampshire. I’m devastated on the impact this will have not only as someone working in the 0-19 service but also as a parent. They are proposing a cut of 47 whole time equivalent staff (12.5% of the workforce who are highly trained and skilled Specialist Nurses). This is devastating and will have a massive and extremely negative impact on all children and young people across the county. It will also add burden onto GP’s. The 0-19 service will become a 0-11 service with only digital support for our 11-19 year olds. New parents will get a limited service including one face to face visit and potentially video for others because there won’t be any staff to deliver the contacts and waiting times will start, which we currently don’t have. Our new parents will not get the support they vitally need on their journey to parenthood.

During the pandemic it was Health Visitors and School Nurses that donned their PPE and were out seeing those considered most vulnerable and at risk of significant harm during the height of the pandemic and were out in force across the community almost invisible while all other services opted for either video or telephone by default or stopped their services entirely. Some still are not face to face. Our 0-19 service captured the voices of our children and young people when no one else was out there.

You clapped on a Thursday evening week in week out and we were incredibly touched by this, but now we need your help again and more than ever one more time.

Please read the public consultation document here (starts on page 32 in the information pack) and if you are able to, please comment on it and if you agree this is wrong, please oppose the cuts.

https://www.hants.gov.uk/aboutthecouncil/haveyoursay/consultations/public-health-consultation

Also please shout about it, write to your MP, local counsellors and tell them how awful this will be. Whatever your thoughts, just remember that the health, mental health and well-being of our children and young people needs protection, they are our future and we can’t afford to fail them.
