𝗙𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘀 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗼𝗽𝗲𝗻 𝘄𝗶𝗻𝗱𝗼𝘄𝘀 - safety in the home
As the weather gets warmer (hopefully) many of us are opening our windows to help to keep cool. The Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT) has noticed that during the summer months there is often a rise in the number of young children falling from windows.
Our youngest children are at more risk as they are curious and want to know what is happening outside, but they don't always understand the danger of leaning out too far. This is compounded by the fact that their heads are proportionately much bigger than ours in comparison to the rest of their body which can make them "top heavy".
CAPT also reminds us how quickly accidents can happen and before you know it a little one has climbed onto something to reach an open window. They recommend fitting catches, locks or restrictors to prevent your windows opening too wide.

Make your own at home
1 large container ( something see through like a jar is good so that everyone can see the mixing)
1/2 cup washing up liquid
2 teaspoons of sugar
Pour the washing up liquid into the jar
Add the water
Add the sugar and stir gently

You can use just about anything to make the bubbles if you do not already have a bubble wand. Below are a few we've tried:
Round biscuit cutters - dip the edge in and blow gently
Pipe cleaners - make into a circle or try another shape
Plastic funnel - this already has a natural shape for a bubble wand. Use the large end to dip in your mixture and the small end to blow.

Government funding drives up childcare prices 25/03/2022

Government funding drives up childcare prices

More than a third of early years providers in England planning to increase childcare fees this year say they would not do so if government funding was enough to adequately cover their costs, while four in 10 said that they would be raising childcare fees by a smaller amount, a new survey by the Alliance has revealed.

Commenting, Alliance CEO Neil Leitch said: “Providers are now facing a cliff edge, with more than a third of early years businesses currently operating at a loss (30%) and even more (34%) expecting to operate at a loss in a years’ time – but this could all be avoided if the government finally admitted there is a problem and took action to plug the widening funding gap.

“Early years providers offer a lifeline for working parents and vital early education for young children, but it is becoming near-impossible for them to offer these critical services at affordable prices. The government needs to address the sector’s funding gap before more parents – and especially mothers – are forced to pay ever-increasing prices and compromise their careers to ensure their child can receive good quality care and education.”
