As you may have heard from the children already we have had a little change around to the Sunshine Team.

We bid a tearful Goodbye to Becca as she recently returned to our ‘sister setting’ of Dolphin Pre-school & Nursery to join their Pre-school team and in exchange we are very excited to welcome Barnaby to the ‘Sunny-Side’! Barnaby joins us with a wealth of experience in childcare having previously worked for Munchkins and Puffins before breezing through Dolphin doors in 2019!

He is already proving to be a big hit with the children and his love for the outdoors is already being put to good use with an introduction to our allotment which he is looking forward to carrying on Becca’s greenfingered prowess!

In his spare time Barnaby enjoys country walks with his girlfriend Amy and his dogs and when indoors he’s an avid ‘Jurgen Klopp’ on Fifa and a ‘Gordon Ramsay’ in the kitchen!

Thursday 10th December

We will be holding a Flu Vaccine clinic at Dolphin Pre- school & Nursery in Raddenstile Lane on Thursday 10th December. At this clinic most of our team will be getting their vaccination but we have managed to order some extra vaccines. We would like to offer this out to our parents so if you, your family, or someone you know would like to book a time slot please ring Dolphin on (01395) 272418. This is on a first come first served basis and the price per vaccine will be £9 which will need to be paid to confirm booking.

Let’s Stay Well This Winter

Who knew we had such wonderful little ‘posers’?!

Thank you to all those that attended the Concept Photography session recently. The proof sheets should be with us in the next couple of weeks, as soon as they are, we will get them out to you with details on how to order and closing date for orders and returns.

Name It!…

Please, please, PLEASE can you ensure that coats, bags & especially drinks bottles are named. We have several children that have the same sort and we do not want them taking the wrong one home it also saves a lot of time at handover during the current restrictions.

Name Labels…

Can we please ask that bags, drinks bottles, jumpers and coats have your child’s name in. We have had some lost property recently and it saves a lot of time at the end of the day if items have your child’s name on them. Thank You x

Can we also ask that you bring a bag of spare clothes in, in case we need to change…remember we like to go out in all weathers!

Please ensure that you check your emails regularly for Covid-19 updates from us. It is also advisable to check the Government website at for any changes in information and also how to arrange to get tested if needed to.
