Northamptonshire Childminding Association

Northamptonshire Childminding Association (NCA) continues to work with schools to help meet the demand for out of school care by linking in with local childminders.

Many parents do not have access to out of school provision on site or close by and even when there is provision, some parents may still prefer home based care for their children.

Childminders can offer before and after school care, taking children to school in the morning and collecting them after school.  Most childminders are also happy to look after children during school holidays and on teacher training days, ensuring consistency and continuity. They are Ofsted registered and are inspected against the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and Childcare Register – exactly the same as all other childcare providers. Many now offer funded early learning for 2 year olds and the free entitlement 3 and 4 year olds.

Now you’re starting to think about your new intake please see the attached letter about how we can help.

Nourish Menu Changes

Due to the feedback received from schools on the Chicken Noodley Doodley recipe we have decided to replace the dish with Chicken and Sweetcorn Casserole, served with Yorkshire pudding, boiled potatoes and mixed vegetables.

In addition we will also be serving potato wedges to accompany the Chicken Fajitas on Monday week two of the three week menu cycle.

We will continue to monitor menu feedback and it is our intention to work with our supplier Cambridge County Council to refine the menus based on school and parents comments.

In the meantime the Nourish questionnaire will remain open for all your comments and suggestions throughout April and can be accessed via the link below:

Yours sincerely,

School governor – Andy Watt to skydive for charity

Hello and Welcome from Team Santander Skydive
Santander Sky diving

A group of six men, young at heart and passionate to succeed have “dug deep” and taken on the challenge of their first skydive.

It is not to prove their bravery, nor to impress, nor overcome any fears – this inspiring team have taken on the challenge and set a target of raising £2,500 in aid of a very worthy cause. All money raised is in aid of the St. Francis’ Children’s Society (SFCS) to help a vulnerable child find a forever family.

Please help Andy Watt, Nathan Jakes, Simon Masih, Angel Sainz de la Cruz, Adam Spencer and Dipen Dhokia to achieve their target.

About St. Francis’ Children’s Society

St. Francis’ Children’s Society (SFCS) is a voluntary adoption agency which seeks to make a difference to vulnerable children’s lives by finding them permanent families. SFCS operate across Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire, and are now expanding into East Anglia and Lincolnshire. SFCS is rated Outstanding by OFSTED. As a registered charity and limited company, our work is entirely charitable and non-profit making. Their Adoption Connections service offers an open-door policy. Currently in the UK, there are over 4,000 children in need of an adoptive family, and we welcome all kinds of adopters for all kinds of children, regardless of age, race, cultural background, religion, marital status or sexual orientation. As well as finding new families for children awaiting adoption, SFCS offers an extensive range of support services for adopters, and indeed anyone affected by adoption

The Birth Connections service offers advice, support and counselling to birth parents and other family members who have lost a child to adoption and are struggling to come to terms with that loss. We also offer family tracing services and appropriate counselling to adults who were adopted as children via our Building Connections service. SFCS values and respects everyone who is affected by adoption, and our ‘cradle to grave’ service is what makes us unique.
