In a change to normal booking procedures we no longer require cheque payment to secure your place, however... You should be aware that responsibility for the management of non attendance has been transferred to the City and County of Swansea Accounts Receivable (AR) section who will: ■ Issue an invoice of £50.00 per person per course for any non attendance. ■ If within 35 days an invoice remains unpaid, the Accounts Receivable section will issue a reminder. ■ If after a further 14 days payment is still outstanding a court warning notice will be issued. ■ If the invoice remains unpaid following the issue of a court warning this will be considered a legal debt and will be subject to court action. ■ The Accounts Receivable section will issue all correspondence to the childcare / early years setting who will be ultimately responsible for making the payment. ■ Any outstanding payments will mean that the setting will no longer be accepted on future training courses. Please note that ■ Upon successful completion of the Food Safety course that the awarding body can take a minimum of 3 months to issue certificates. ■ All these courses will be offered on a first come first served basis. ■ Places will be limited to TWO attendees per setting. ■ No bookings will be accepted before the booking dates outlined. ■ Provided sufficient notification is given of non attendance (i.e 10 working days) no charge will be made.

Baby Language and Play Facilitated by Tracie Jennett – Language and Play Co-ordinator Welcome to the new Baby Lap programme – ‘Your Baby is Amazing’ As early years staff we are always keen to share information with parents. Recent research has highlighted that parents of newborns want bite size pieces of information and practical tips telling them how they can help with their child’s development. With this in mind the Baby LAP Programme was devised in Cardiff and ‘Your Baby is Amazing’ has been developed. This programme contains the same LAP messages just in a slightly different format. This provides for a more definite progression between Baby LAP and LAP.
