Sundown Adventureland

It was a really hard decision to make but we had to cancel our trip to Sundown Adventureland today, the weather is simply too cold and roads approaching Sundown are still covered in ice and snow.

We have booked to go again on Thursday 14th April 2011 - more details to follow in the New Year

Snow Days!!

Pre-school was closed on Wednesday 1st December and remains closed on Thursday 2nd December due to the adverse weather conditions.

We will endeavour to keep parents as up to date as possible either via the website or via our text messaging service.

The decision to close is never an easy one to make. Our main concern is always the safety and well being of the children, parents and staff. We take into consideration road conditions and the distances to be travelled, the conditions under foot and the ratio of adults to children before making our decision.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

If you would like your child to attend please let Jayne know as soon as possible and before Friday 15th October.  A list will be available to complete on the main doors or please feel free to text, email, phone or let any member of staff know.
