5 Star Rating

Hygiene - 5 Star

Our Preschool kitchen has just been inspected and awarded a Five Star Rating by the London Borough of Bexley authorities.

It was only during the Christmas period that we had been given a provisional 1 star rating, down from our original 5 Star Rating from the previous year. A few of our preschool parents picked up on this 1 star rating, which for us, was unfortunately published before we had a chance of re-inspection. Rest assured, the inspection was made at a very unfortunate time and did not in any way reflect our normal levels of kitchen hygiene. Now that we have been given a 5 star rating on re-inspection, we are happy to spill the beans and explain why we were only awarded 1 star on the initial inspection.

Long Hard Winter

Our Animals Need More Bedding - Please Donate

Its been a long hard winter at our Poets Corner site. You see it sits right at the bottom of the valley smack between Shooters Hill and Wickham Open Space. The temperatures really drop in the mornings. When Bexley had a sleety-rain last week, we had big fluffy snow. Its not unusual for everything to be iced up overnight, with temperatures down to minus 6 or more! Its a right old cold trap!!

Which brings us on to our mammal enclosures which are located onsite. During the winter months we have to make sure that we have plenty of warm bedding for our fluffy friends. Most have straw packed into their sleeping quarters, but straw does not work for our Ferrets (prone to respiratory problems with straw dust), Roxy raccoon dog, The Meerkat families and the Dumbo Rats for example. We also get through lots of towels drying our two therapy dogs, once they come back from walks with our students caked in mud!

We Need Your Co-op-eration...Again!

 

Co-op Local Community Fund

We are pleased to have been chosen to benefit from the Co-op Community Fund again this year. The last fund provided a welcome £3671.92 which went along way towards buidling the Roundhouse at the Mini-Explorers Preschool and all the accessories like the wood burning stove. 

We will again be partnering with the Valliers Wood  Co-op Supermarket on Halfway Street, Sidcup. 

You will again be helping raise funds for ADO! Shoppers that purchase Co-op branded products and services will raise money for ADO right up until the end of October 2019. Yes, that's a whole year of fundraising. ADO will also recieve an equal share from the sale of carrier bags.

The more you shop, the more Co-op will share with us.
