๐Ÿฆ–๐Ÿฆ• DINO LAND ๐Ÿฆ–๐Ÿฆ•

Sarah has been very busy creating this amazing dinosaur land for the children, how lucky are we!
We cannot wait to see how the children play and explore this tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

[04/27/21]   Who will be eligible for the 30-hour free childcare extended entitlement?
The extended entitlement is available to 3- and 4-year-olds of working parents. To qualify, each parent (or the sole parent in a single parent family) will need to earn, on average, at least the equivalent of 16 hours on the national minimum wage per week (currently ยฃ115.20 per week for over 25s), and no more than ยฃ100,000 per year. Self-employed parents and parents on zero-hours contracts will be eligible if they meet the average earnings criteria.

Families where one parent is not in paid employment (or neither parent works) will usually not be eligible for the additional hours. There are exceptions for parents who are on parental, maternity, paternity, adoption or sick leave. Parents who are studying or in training will not be eligible unless this is combined with paid work which meets the minimum average earnings threshold.

However, parents will be eligible where one parent is in receipt of benefits relating to caring responsibilities or has a disability and the other parent is working. Single parents who are disabled or have substantial caring responsibilities will not be eligible.

Parents will apply for both the extended entitlement and the Tax-Free Childcare scheme through a joint online system being developed by HMRC, as the eligibility requirements for both schemes are the same. Parents will have to declare that they expect their earnings to fall within the required threshold either over the next quarter or the current tax year. Parents who make inaccurate or dishonest declarations can be fined between ยฃ300 and ยฃ3000.

[04/27/21]   If you are looking to find a preschool place for your child, we think you should consider Peapod when you weigh up this extremely important decision. We're proud that parents from across the local area have considered that Peapod
offers the best pre-school opportunity for their child. We believe that our staff qualifications and experience and our Ofsted rating of good makes us worthy of investigation for parents searching for pre-schools

[04/27/21]   *** Lets get ready for School***
As you all know September is the time for children to begin their new adventure into the big school and here at Preschool we have been supporting them by: Introducing more phonics activities, mathematical activities, and developing their self help skills to ensure they are becoming more independent and confident to make their transition into school a much smoother process.

At Peapod Nursery, we follow โ€˜In the moment planningโ€™ This means we follow the childrenโ€™s interests and adapt what we are doing throughout the day to ensure we are meeting those interests.
Last week, the children were showing a huge interest in transport ๐Ÿš— and Dinosaurs ๐Ÿฆ•, so they started to make lovely displays around this interest.

I wonder what this week will bring ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค”

๐Ÿ–ŒDIY SPONGE STAMPS๐Ÿงฝ
Shoutout to that one time I meticulously cut out shapes from old sponges ๐Ÿ˜†. I see pumpkins and ghost stamps this season ๐Ÿ‘ป. To use old sponges, soak it in water and put in the microwave for 1-2 mins, let them dry and you are ready to make some sponge brushes. I did use new ones for demonstration purposes though ๐Ÿ˜‰. And if you prefer new ones, dollar tree has a pack of 2 for $1 ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป. โžก๏ธJust one tip. Donโ€™t use a permanent marker to outline the shapes because it wonโ€™t come off the shape toy๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ. Trust me ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸผYOUโ€™LL NEED:
-Sponges
-Marker/pen
-Scissors
-Knife
-Hot glue
-Popsicle sticks
๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸผINSTRUCTIONS:
1๏ธโƒฃTrace a shape on the sponge. I used a toy shape as a stencil.
2๏ธโƒฃCut out the shape
3๏ธโƒฃMake a slot in the center of the shape using the knife. Deep enough to insert the tip of a popsicle stick.
4๏ธโƒฃCut a popsicle stick in half and add some hot glue to the tip. Insert it into the slot in the center of the shape.
5๏ธโƒฃDip the sponge in paint and stamp on paper.
๐Ÿ’กWash like you would any brush and leave out to dry. #mothercould #howto
