In the Pink!

During the last week of term (20th - 24th Oct) we shall be going pink in support of Breast Cancer Campaign's 'Wear it Pink' event.

It'll be all things pink all week from what we wear to what we eat!  So join in the fun with something pink and donate to a charity that is close to our hearts.

All About Me

Our topic at the moment is 'All About Me' so we would love it if the children could bring in some baby photos of themselves for our display.  Perhaps you can spot some familiar faces??

New School Year

Welcome back to a new school year here at Springfield Pre-School.

Most of our sessions are now full, but should you require any extra sessions or change of session please just ask.

Would you like the choice of a Friday afternoon session?  Parents are asked to let us know if the addition of a Friday afternoon would be beneficial.  Decision to be made shortly, watch this space!

No Sports but lots of Singing!

Unfortunately the British Summer weather meant that our planned Sports Day on Friday 18th had to forgo the Sports!!  But we still went ahead with our Leavers Concert so there was plenty of singing and a chance to say goodbye to those children leaving us for nursery and big school with the presentation of some books.

There were presentations made to both committee and staff as appreciation for all their hard work over the last year, as well as an early 21st birthday celebration for one member of staff!!

Summer Fayre 14th June 2008

Our Summer Fayre last Saturday took on a decidedly Hawaiian theme, with 'Hoopla the Pineapple', 'Coconut Shy' and 'Pin the Flower on the Hula Girl' along with old favourites like Face Painting, 'Stocks' and the Bouncy Castle.

A great time was had by all and profits for the day hope to be just under £700!!!

Many thanks to all who took part on Saturday, those who organised the event (you know who you are!), those who helped man stalls and most importantly all of you who came along and joined in the fun and spent lots of money!

All proceeds raised help to provide much needed supplies and equipment - thank you.

IMG_1146What lovely weather, the rain stayed away and everyone had a great day.






The Bouncy Castle proved to be lots of fun.





Look at our faces.....

Welcome to Springfield Pre-School's new homepage!

Thanks to Derbyshire County Council's generosity we're happy to report that we have now moved into Web 2.0 here at Springfield Pre-School.  We have recently purchased a whole new suite of IT equipment for our staff and children to use and this is also enabling us to have a proper presence on the Internet.

This is the first post of many, so keep dropping by to check on what's happening.
