New Extension to Rear Cross Premises

As some of you may be aware we have started our extension in the Rearcross Caterpillars, the building is well under way and already it is shaping up, we would like to thank you for your co-operation whilst this building is underway. The extension is being completed in 3 phrases, 1-Addition of new room, 2-New entrance, 3-Extension to existing room on the right, 4-Addition to 2 new toilets one being a disabled toilet, 5-Additional nappy changing area. All works to be completed by the end of January.

Winter months:

Please be advised in the winter months that the creche carpark is very busy from the times between- 8.30-9.30. 12.15-12.45 and 5.00-6.00 everyday, as its busy at these times we would ask you all to be very careful in entering and leaving the creche, we ask you to drive at a slow pace as this is in the best interest of children and adults been in the carpark at these times, we would also advise that no one park at the front turning corner of the creche as it is dark and it is hard for other cars to see when they are coming and going.

Portal SMS text message service:

As you may have noticed we are now using a SMS portal text message service, this is to ensure we all get the same message at the same time. For security reasons within the portal, messages sent from Caterpillars childcare will be sent from a different number, we will however always use the heading ‘Caterpillars’ so you know it is from us.

Labelling all children’s belongings;

Again, just a reminder if you could label all children’s belongings, as its now getting colder children will have jackets, hats,. gloves etc… so we would be grateful if you could label everything as not to cause any confusion in the evenings.
