Welcome to the Team….

We would like to welcome our new staff onto the Jozone Team!

Abbie Cockayne, Angel Morphew and Stephanie Smedley have all recently joined us and we wish them all the luck in their new roles.

We would also like to give a big welcome back to Naomi who has joined the Jozone team again at Chadsmead.

Congratulations Fern!

We just wanted to say a big congratulations to Fern who had her little girl the beginning of September. Both mother and baby are doing well and we all look forward to meeting them soon. 

Tax Free Childcare

Tax-free Childcare is available to around 2 million households to help with the cost of childcare, enabling more parents to go out to work, if they want to, to provide greater security for their families. You’ll be able to open an online account, which you can pay into to cover the cost of childcare with Jozone. You’ll be able to apply for all your children at the same time, when your youngest child becomes eligible.

All eligible parents will be able to join the scheme by the end of 2017. For every 80p you put in the government will top up an extra 20p, this is equivalent of the tax most people pay – 20%.

To check eligibility visit:


We just wanted to let you all know (or remind you if you already know) that we have a Facebook page. We put information about any trips during the holidays or spaces we have for them plus we put pictures up of all the fun the children (and staff) have at both the holiday club and all our before and after school clubs, please check it out at and like the page to get all the latest information.

Made a Difference (MAD) Reward Scheme

At Jozone we are starting a reward scheme for the staff to recognise the hard work we all put into the club, children staff parents and visitors can nominate staff members for the reward. If you feel a member of staff is worthy of the reward for something they have done then please feel free to write the name and reason for the nomination on a slip of paper and put it in the nominations box. You can find a nominations form on a Forms page!

Items Wanted

Do you have any unwanted items that you feel that we could benefit from at our settings?
