Paper Moon Forest Town – Tidy Together Litter Campaign, Supporting British Values

Children and staff from Paper Moon Day Nursery, Forest Town, Mansfield joined volunteers to give their local area a thorough clean-up, collecting more than 15 bags of rubbish.  The local campaign has helped the children to understand how important it is to look after their environment and that rules matter, ultimately building levels of respect for their community.

Paper Moon Day Nurseries – Supporting children in Malawi, Africa

Children from Paper Moon Day Nurseries have been making links with children from Chilemoni, Malawi, Africa who attend a local Childrens’ Centre developed by Krizevac a UK based charity.  The Children’s Centre is a first of its kind in Malawi; the first to be based on the UK Sure Start model, helping to transform the lives of hundreds of families and help children to have the best possible start in life.  Many of these children are orphans, or particularly vulnerable and receive their care completely free of charge. Others pay monthly fees because their parents work. Whether fee paying or free, all children are treated the same at the Children’s Centre Mother Teresa and all children have the opportunity to lead their own learning through play in a supportive, creative and caring environment.   Staff have spent time with the children sharing information about the lives of children in Malawi and two children in particular wanted to send out special gifts to the children.  One child asked to send out some clean water and his favorite monkey for them.  The little girl at one of our Mansfield nurseries told her mummy she had too many dolls and wanted the children in Africa to have two of hers.  Their gifts arrived in Malawi this month and the children all seemed really happy with them.    

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for nurseries

What is it?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation which becomes law on 25 May 2018. It covers the management and control of personal information. Regardless of Britain’s plans to leave the EU, this will still be a legal requirement for all organisations.

How does this differ from the current data protection laws?

GDPR will replace the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003. It increases the obligations that companies have regarding personal data and focuses on rights for individuals. There is an emphasis on a more robust protection for individuals and higher penalties on organisations who fail to comply.

What is personal data?

This is classed as any data which can be linked to a single person and can identify them. Examples include a name, email address, postal address, telephone numbers, bank accounts and photos. But just an email address is not personal data unless it can be directly linked to more data that is stored somewhere else.

Does this include children’s data?

Yes it does. But it also provides an opportunity for nurseries to engage with parents and build up trust and loyalty. Let them know what measures you are putting in place and that you are ahead of the game regarding their personal details.

How will Paper Moon Day Nurseries comply with this new legislation?

We have carried out a data audit and analysis of what data we hold, whose data it is, what is the purpose of storing the data, where it is stored and for how long, how it is shared with any legal requirements and most importantly how we make share all of these procedures with parents and staff. Details of this information can be seen in our Privacy Policy and our Record Retention Policy. Please ask for a copy at your nursery.

Paper Moon Day Nursery - Forest Town

The Preschool children recently went on an adventure to Sherwood Pines.  All children enjoyed having the freedom to explore and be curious in their natural environment, taking risks (climbing trees) and making dens out of natural resources. The children practiced their skills at being able to follow instructions.

 

They also extended their knowledge as they discussed habitats of animals and insects and most importantly had an enjoyable day out with their friends.
