Welcome to our news letter for July 2012. We will update you monthly with our newsletter, so please feel free to offer any comments or suggestions!!
Also could we kindly ask parents if their child is not coming into crèche or going on holidays to let us know.
We will be hosting our very own Olympic Games in Jellystone. The provisional date which is subject to change is July 27th. This will be confirmed nearer the time and of course weather permitting. Watch out for further details on our notice board.
Our Montessori class has finished for this year. So over the summer months we will be running our summer camp with lots of fun activities planned, Aoife will update you on the summer camp schedule.
Parent Tips…. What to do if your child has a high temperature?
- A child with a high temperature needs more liquid than usual because the fever will make them sweat a lot. So make sure your child drinks plenty of liquids – a teaspoonful every few minutes, if necessary. Provided they drink plenty of liquids, it won’t matter too much if they eat very little for a couple of days
- If your child shivers while their temperature is rising, it’s okay to cover them with a duvet or a blanket. But as soon as your child’s temperature has stabilised and he or she starts sweating, they need to cool down.
- Your child only needs to wear underwear or a nappy, which will help the heat escape from the body. Make sure their room is ventilated and cool, but not draughty. Have the heating off and windows open slightly.
- Sponging can help cool a fever, but make sure the sponge is not cold as this can cause shivering and actually raise the temperature.
Parent Participantion – we did ask but
If you would like to come and share something with us that you and the children would enjoy we’d love to hear from you, so please talk to Rachel. We are being deliberately vague on the but…. bit as we don’t want to limit your suggestions.
Many thanks, from Rachel and all the staff @ Jellystone park!!!
