'Grow Your Own Feast' Mental Health Awareness Week
'Grow Your Own Feast' Mental Health Awareness Week

Next week is Mental Health Awareness Week, and what better way to support the mental health of yourself, your staff and children in your care than getting out in your wellies and doing a spot of gardening?

As part of our Tesco Centenary funded “Grow Your Own Feast” Project we have been busy developing bilingual activity cards to support you to grow, cook and hold your own celebratory feast.

Here are some initial ideas to get you started with your growing space, along with our ‘Square Foot Gardening’ resource.

If you use any of our Grow Your Own Feast activities at home or within your Out of School Childcare Club, we would love to see your photos! Share with the #growyourownfeast

'Grow Your Own Feast' National Walking Month
'Grow Your Own Feast' National Walking Month

May is ‘National Walking Month’ and what better activity is there to get out exploring your area with your Club or family than foraging?

As part of our Tesco Centenary “Grow Your Own Feast” Project we are lucky enough to have teamed up with author, food-writer and experienced forager Adele Nozedar, who has been enthusing us about the fantastic sensory experience that foraging offers.

For a taste of the foraging experience, see the Elderflower Cordial Activity Card developed in partnership with Adele, along with some general information about foraging. Further foraging activities and short videos from Adele to follow soon on our website!

'Use It or Lose It'/Help Template for Out of School Clubs
'Use It or Lose It'/Help Template for Out of School Clubs

To support our marketing package for Settings, we have created a ‘Use It or Lose It/Help’ template https://bit.ly/32whj2f for Clubs to gain support from their community by letting them know the Club is at risk of closure due to lower than normal attendance and urging parents who may need it to get in touch.

Interruptions to schooling, enforced closures of businesses and a move to parents/carers working at home has affected many Out of School Childcare Clubs, leaving them with far fewer children attending than normal and many temporarily closed.   

As current lockdown restrictions ease and families plan childcare arrangements for the coming term, school holidays and beyond, now may be the right time to call for their support in terms of bookings or letting them know that they risk losing the affordable, local childcare your Setting provides for good. 

This template is in addition to a range of other marketing resources for member Clubs, available on the members area of our website including:

  • Information about finding your Unique Selling Point and how to create a professional public image (email/telephone)
  • Template fliers for registered Settings
  • Newsletter template and top tips for creating a newsletter
  • A guide for how to develop a marketing strategy
  • A pre-recorded webinar to support you to develop a social media profile and utilise it effectively

"Grow Your Own Feast" National Gardening Week, 2021

The Royal Horticultural Society’s National Gardening Week is held from 26th April – 2nd May. Lockdowns have seen a renewed appetite for gardening, and growing your own food can be an excellent way of supporting adults and children’s mental health and wellbeing, as well as being a great way of supporting inter-generational involvement and learning opportunities.

As part of our Tesco Centenary “Grow Your Own Feast” Project, we will be sharing a host of bilingual activity cards to support you to grow, cook and celebrate within your homes and communities. Here is an idea to get you started, with more activity cards to follow – watch this space!

"Grow Your Own Feast" World Earth Day, 2021

World Earth Day (22nd April 2021) is centered on the theme “Restore our Earth”.

Our Tesco Centenary Project, “Grow Your Own Feast” has launched this Spring, and bilingual activity cards will shortly be available on our website. In line with the theme of ‘Earth Day 2021’, here are activities you may wish to do with children in your Club, or at home with your own children, to think about food, where it comes from, and how we can grow and consume food in a more environmentally friendly manner.

Addressing the Barriers: Qualifications
Addressing the Barriers: Qualifications

The benefits of registering your Out of School Childcare Club with Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) for businesses, parents/carers and children are typically understood. However, you may currently be continuing to offer an unregistered service due to the difficulty in meeting the requirements for appropriately qualified staff.

We have addressed some of the frequently asked questions and challenges within our ‘Addressing the Barrier’ to CIW registration document here.

Manifesto
Manifesto

Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs’ has published its Manifesto for Out of School Childcare Clubs in Wales for the Welsh General Election in 2021.   This sets out the essential role of the Out of School Childcare sector and calls on the next Welsh Government to prioritise actions under 4 key areas during their 2021-26 term.

 

Jane O’Toole Chief Executive Officer

“Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs is passionate about the provision of quality, affordable, accessible, CIW registered Out of School Childcare that is play rich and child led.  The Out of School Childcare sector has been particularly hard hit by Covid-19 and as part of the foundational economy, the sector’s revival is crucial to supporting economic regeneration and families across Wales as well as supporting children’s rights andtheir right to play.  Our Manifestosets out the essential role of the Out of School Childcare sector and calls on the next Welsh Government to prioritise actions under 4 key areas in their 2021-26 term: children’s rights; childcare provision for and within communities; a suitably trained and supported workforce and; continued support for the sector.

Annual Report 2019/2020
Annual Report 2019/2020
Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids' Clubs are pleased to present their Trustees report and Financial Statements for 2019-2020. The report demonstrates the impact the organisation continues to make to Out of School Childcare Settings across Wales, as well as Playwork Training for the sector.
 
Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids' Clubs looks forward to working with its partners again in 2020-2021.
Addressing the Barriers of registering with Care Inspectorate Wales: Perceived Insufficient Demand
Addressing the Barriers of registering with Care Inspectorate Wales: Perceived Insufficient Demand

The benefits of registering your Out of School Childcare Club with Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) for businesses, parents/carers and children are typically understood. However, you may currently be continuing to offer an unregistered service due to a belief that there is insufficient demand from your community for you to register.

In the first of our ‘Addressing the Barrier’ resources, we have identified some of the common perceptions in terms of insufficient demand and outlined some points for unregistered Clubs to consider, to support you to continue meeting the needs of the communities you serve. Keep your eyes peeled for more ‘Addressing the Barrier’ resources in the New Year!

If you would discuss these points further, or would like support to complete registration, please contact your Regional Childcare Business Development Officer. Through funding from some Local Authorities and through our National Lottery funded People and Places Project, we are able to provide tailored support to guide you through the process from policy writing, governance discussions and completing the new online registration form.

Childrens Day - 20th November
Childrens Day - 20th November

This week we celebrate Childrens Day (20th November) and here at Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs we are passionate about children and advocating for their rights. 

 

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) was introduced in the UK in 1989, ratified in 1991 and in 2004, the Welsh Government formally adopted the UNCRC as the basis of policy making relating to children and young people. 

 

There are 54 Articles in the Convention - 1-42 outline the Children’s fundamental Rights, 43-54 outline the government’s, local authorities and adults duties in enforcing their rights.  

 

We have developed a Bilingual Poster to highlight the articles we think are particularly important to Playwork and Playworkers. Note the Keywords associated with each Article, use these welsh keywords as a tool in your setting to develop the Welsh Language.

 

Temporary or Emergency Closure of a Club
Temporary or Emergency Closure of a Club

Out of School Childcare Clubs need to be prepared for unforeseen circumstances and the possibility that they may need to close their setting on a temporary basis or evacuate due to an emergency that is beyond their control.  Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs has provided a range of resources to support settings through a temporary and/or emergency Club closure.

 

There are varying reasons why such closures may be necessary, for example:

  • Fire
  • Extreme weather conditions such as flooding
  • An outbreak of a notifiable infection, or a national/global pandemic
  • An act of terrorism
  • Power cut or gas leak
  • Issues preventing access (for example building works, or host premises closure such as a school/community centre)

 

If you can't operate as normal, there are things you would need to do: from calling all staff and parents/carers to let them know what's happened, to being able to make arrangements with insurers and regulators. 

 

To support you to effectively plan for such circumstances, we have developed a range of resources which are available on the members area of our website. To find out more about becoming a member, click here.

 

Although many of the resources listed on the PDF Download below were developed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, they are applicable and can be easily adapted to cover more generic reasons for an emergency and/or temporary closure.  

 

Please note that all templates should be amended for your specific circumstances, and you will need to ensure that you keep them updated with any future changes to guidance.

CWLWM NEWSLETTER - AUTUMN TERM 2020
CWLWM NEWSLETTER - AUTUMN TERM 2020

Welcome to the Cwlwm Autumn Term Newsletter. The Covid-19 pandemic has proved to be a difficult and challenging time for everyone and Cwlwm partners would like to congratulate and thank the sector for reopening their provisions/remaining open. This newsletter demonstrates the effort, determination, innovation and successes achieved by the sector. The sector has continued to move forward and children and families across Wales have benefited from the various support offered by Cwlwm. Cwlwm continues to be here to support you.

Marketing
Marketing

Marketing is the process of getting people interested in your business. Market research ensures that your service meets the needs of your local community effectively, and it is important to review and reflect on this not just when you are first starting out, but at regular points in time as these needs can change, particularly in light of recent economic circumstances.

Marketing is also about advertising, and again this is not just an initial exercise when you are starting up, but should be a continual practice that is incorporated into your business on an ongoing basis. It can be surprising how many parents are unaware of Childcare available, even when based on school site! It is also about promoting the quality of what you do – reassuring parents/carers so that they feel more able to leave their children in your care.

Why is marketing important? Some useful information can be found in our guide here.

To support you to effectively plan and market your Out of School Childcare Club, we have developed a host of resources for member Clubs, available on the members area of our website.

Resources include

  • Information about finding your Unique Selling Point and how to create a professional public image (email/telephone)
  • Template fliers for registered Settings
  • Newsletter template and top tips for creating a newsletter
  • A guide for how to develop a marketing strategy
  • A pre-recorded webinar to support you to develop a social media profile and utilise it effectively

Financial Planning, Financial Systems and Sustainability
Financial Planning, Financial Systems and Sustainability

All Childcare Provisions, while aiming to be community focused and offer affordable, quality services within local communities, should also be run in a ‘business like’ way. Having effective financial management systems and planning in place is critical to the effective running of a Childcare business, and to ensuring long term success.

Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs has developed some useful resources and guides to support Out of School Childcare Clubs to utilise financial systems and planning to support their sustainability.  If you are a Member, please click here to log in, and go to Member’s Resources, where you will find this document with links to everything that is available. 

If you are not currently a Member, you can join by clicking here.  If you are not currently a Member, you may access some of the information below here.  As part of your Financial Systems, accounts should be kept on a monthly basis, detailing all income and expenditure that has occurred. Information about preparing and keeping accounts can be found on the Member’s Resources area of the website.  Login to access here.  There is also information about ensuring accounts are independently verified (or audited if this is required).

Through using Business Performance Indicators (BPIs) from your accounts and financial record keeping, an insight can be provided into the ‘health’ of your business. These BPIs include:

1.    Capacity Profile – an audit of the number of places you have available against the number of places taken and paid for each session.

2.    Income Generation – from fees, grants, fundraising and tax credits

3.    Expenditure – staffing, premises, consumables and any other expenditure

The balance should always be tipped in favour of generating a profit or surplus, which will leave funds which can then be used for any ‘rainy day’ needs. For member Clubs, our Childcare Business Development Officers are able to support you to complete a ‘Business Health Check’ to review and reflect on this (contact your Regional Office for further information).

As a business, you should also be forecasting future anticipated income and expenditure. A cashflow forecast is an essential business tool to enable you to review how your business is going to progress if a specific situation remains static, or within certain given scenarios. It can also be useful to demonstrate to funders that you have comprehensive financial planning in place, and to demonstrate your long term sustainability (and/or short term need for financial support whilst new strategies to support sustainability are put into place).

Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs has a tried and tested Cashflow Forecast template available for use by Member Out of School Childcare Clubs (members, please contact webinar@clybiauplantcymru.org to request a copy of this). We have also developed a new webinar focused on financial planning, which covers how the cashflow forecast can be utilised. A pre-recorded copy of this webinar will be available shortly to members and non-members, by contacting webinar@clybiauplantcymru.org.

As part of your financial planning processes, it can be useful to undertake a SWOT analysis of your business strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. This reflection, along, with your cashflow forecast, can help identify actions needed to take advantage of strengths and opportunities, and minimise weaknesses/threats, and will support you to review your business plan and future direction. Information about how to undertake a SWOT analysis can be found on the Member’s Resources area of the website.  Login to access here.

Through effectively recording, reviewing and planning your finances, you increase your ability to notice trends, and react in a timely manner to issues that may arise, seeking out additional help and support if needed (e.g. through applying for funding). Potential sources of funding that you may wish to apply for can be found here (available to all Settings). We have also written some top tips to consider when writing funding applications, and a more comprehensive step by step guide to writing funding applications available for members on the Member’s Resources area of the website.  Login to access here.

Playworking after Covid-19
Playworking after Covid-19

With the publication of the Protective Measures for Childcare guidance by Welsh Government, and the news that childcare can prepare to reopen from 29th June, Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs has developed a wealth of resources to support the Out of School Childcare sector to help them revive. 

One of these resources is our Playworking after Covid-19 newsletter. 

Within our recent survey, 77% of Out of School Childcare Clubs reported concern over how to provide a quality play environment within social distancing and infection control requirements. To address and alleviate these concerns, we have developed a complete resource for childcare settings to ensure that they are able to bring socially distanced play opportunities for children within their settings when they return.  

Y Bont - Summer 2020
Y Bont - Summer 2020

The latest edition of Y Bont is available to download, below.  We have made this edition available to all in recognition of the unpresedented times we find ourselves in.  

The next edition will be out in September, and will be available to members only.  To join or renew your membership, please click here.

 

Parent Questionnaire & Engagement Flier
Parent Questionnaire & Engagement Flier

To support your Out of School Childcare Club to plan and prepare to re-open for all children when Government Guidelines allow, Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs has developed a template questionnaire that you may wish to use to ascertain potential demand for childcare places (which could be used for previous service users and potential new service users). We are also creating a useful guide for setting up a Google Questionnaire which will be available in the near future on the members area of our website – to renew your membership and have access to this resource once it is ready, visit www.clybiauplantcymru.org/members.asp

 

We have loved seeing the innovative ways that the Out of School Sector has maintained contact with families whilst children have been unable to attend sessions, and have collated some examples into a Parent/Carer Engagement Flier which may provide you with some additional ways to communicate with your community until you are able to fully reopen for all children.

Legionnaires Factsheet
Legionnaires Factsheet

Since the outbreak of Covid 19 and the subsequent lockdown, many childcare providers have closed or operated a much reduced service. Many providers had to make decisions quickly and may not have had time to put in place procedures to ensure the safety of their water supply while they were closed. This guidance has been prepared by CWLWM to support childcare providers as they prepare to reopen and move out of lockdown.

Childcare places for children of critical workers and vulnerable children-April 2020

There have been challenges reported where families, who are critical workers or have vulnerable children, are struggling to find childcare in the current climate. Cwlwm partners are working closely with Local Authorities in Wales through the Family Information Services (FIS) to support the sector and help them to promote childcare availability and processes for families of children of critical workers and vulnerable children. Please find below a table by Local Authority to support families in finding childcare where they are critical workers or have vulnerable children. Many childcare settings in Wales are providing a service and have availability. We will continue to update this guidance as further information is received.

Money FUNdamentals Fundraising for Out of School Childcare Clubs
Money FUNdamentals Fundraising for Out of School Childcare Clubs

Fundraising can be a great way of funding new equipment/trips/resources to support you to offer quality childcare services to your local community. Some Out of School Childcare Clubs may already be doing this, but have you thought about involving children in your fundraising planning and activities? Why not make one of your resolutions for 2020 to engage in more fundraising, using the enthusiasm and input of the children you provide childcare for?

Through our Santander funded project, Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs has developed a “How to Guide” to support Playworkers to involve children in planning and carrying out fundraising activities. As part of our ‘New Year, Fresh Start’ campaign for January, we are launching this guide.

If you would like to talk to your Regional representative about Fundraising, please contact your local Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs office.
