    Default Leaflet for parents / other settings / childminders etc

    A lot of forum members have very kindly given their time, proofreading skills, layout and design knowledge etc etc to help put this leaflet together.

    Thank you to you all

    It is set out so it can be printed double sided on one sheet of paper and then cut in half.

    It can be handed out to anyone you think might be interested in the campaign against Ms Truss' plans for the future.

    You could -

    - Give a copy to every parent

    - Take copies to hand out to childminders at your toddler group or children's centre

    - Send the first page with a letter to your MP, Ms Truss or the Dept for Education

    - Use wording from the leaflet when you are writing your lobbying letter

    I am just finishing a list of the sort of things you can talk about when you write your letter or email... it's very long so please bear with me!

    Together we can make our voices heard!

    Have just e-mailed it to my DO asking her to e-mail to other childcare providers (if she is allowed)! Have also asked her whether she knows anything else about the agencies and how they will be run, so have to wait for a reply.

    Thank you Sarah, I have emailed loads of contacts and printed off some for the playground. I may just do a leaflet drop around my street, there are loads of families here, that I say hello to but dont really know.

    Wow Sarah, it's really clear and really professional looking - I have just ordered ink and will be printing off copies asap

    Please forgive me if I'm speaking out of turn but the part about nurseries being allowed a ratio of 1:13 for 3&4yrolds if a teacher is present - that is already the case in local authority maintained nurseries/ children centres within 'school hours' (and I have no experience of it, but I guess it would follow that private nurseries are already allowed to apply this if they choose to employ a teacher?)

    Do you think perhaps that it might be better to focus on the 1 adult per 6 2yr olds? I'm sure most parents will be able to conjure up a vivid mental image of how busy that would be!

    I just think that parents with 3&4yr olds might not see what an impact these changes could have if the initial focus of the leaflet is on a ratio they may be familiar with.

    ETA to add more and apologise if I have got the wrong end of the stick

    I am bumping this thread for people who have not seen it yet...

    Please print the leaflet and give it out to childminder friends, parents, nurseries etc and ask them to get on board and support the petition.

    I have been asked about accessibility for people who are not members of the forum and cannot download attachments.

    Please send me a personal message (PM) with your email address and I will send it to you.

    Together we will make ourselves heard!

    Thanks Sarah.

    Now we have the Trussinator's address, do we know her movements?

    The warheads are armed and ready, co-ordinates entered, launch procedure can be initiated any time, pending your response.

    I would but I've no wish to turn half of Norfolk into a charred wasteland if it turns out she's in Westminster at the time.

    You know a certain member of the Faerie folk would object if I did.........

    I have been asked to bump this thread for people who haven't seen it yet.

    This is a great way of reaching other childminders who maybe haven't heard about the campaign yet
