We’ve been so busy at Footprints in the last year that we just haven’t had time to sit back and reflect and keep you updated on the website so here is an overview of what’s been going on.
We have now opened our second branch of Footprints in the Rift House area of Hartlepool. We are situated within the Sure Start Childrens Centre on Masefield Road, next to the school. We are building links with the school and aiming for a seamless transition from nursery to school when the children are ready for the next step. We currently offer morning sessions only until 12.30pm.
We have a fabulous, well qualified team of staff working at Rift House to ensure the same high quality of care across both settings.
If you would like more information or would like to have a look around, please pop in or call 07938 836196 and speak to Lisa.
Meanwhile, Tees Street is going from strength to strength. We are keeping very busy and are almost full to the brim with our lovely children – though we will always find space to squeeze in a few more. We have recently hopped on board with supporting Seaton Carew Cricket Club and Football Club and look forward to developing these partnerships.
Across both settings we are proud to offer the free nursery entitlement to 2,3 and 4 year old children. The 2 year old entitlement is subject to meeting criteria so if you would like to check your eligibility call the First Contact and Support Hub on (01429) 284284. From the term after your child’s 3rd birthday they are automatically entitled to 15 hours a week in nursery. This can be taken in a school but could alternatively be taken in any private nursery of your choice. If you would like more information about taking this with Footprints please call (01429) 261122.
That’s all for now but I will be back soon with more news and promise to keep the updates more regular from now on!
