End of Term

Well we've reached the end of our first term this year at pre-school.  We hope everyone has had a fun time and that all our new starters are enjoying their new pre-school.

A big thank you to everyone who supported our cake sale last week which raised £66 and to everyone who ordered Christmas cards which has raised another £49.  Cards should be with us the week beginning the 5th November.

We have a very busy and exciting term coming up with lots of things happening;

  • Tuesday 13th November is Photograph Day
  • Wednesday 14th November at 7.30pm we will be having a candle party, with all proceeds going direct to pre-school
  • Week beginning the 19th November is 'Non-Uniform Week' - the children can come dressed in their favourite outfits and all that we ask for is a bottle of something for our bottle tombola at the upcoming Christmas Fayre
  • Saturday 24th November, 2pm - 4pm our annual Christmas Fayre
  • Wednesday 19th December at 1pm - Christmas Concert
  • Thursday 20th December 9.30am - 11.30am - Christmas Party
It's a good job we have a week off to re-charge our batteries!

We hope everyone has a great week off - Happy Halloween and a safe Bonfire Night!

A big thank you to everyone who baked and bought cakes this week, you helped raise £66!!!

Wow!  It's really appreciated by all at pre-school and helps us to continue to provide high quality activities for your children to enjoy.

Thank you!

This week, 15th October, is Cake Sale week!

Please bring in your donations whether home-made or shop-bought to pre-school and we shall be selling them at the end of each session.  All money raised will go to support our upcoming Christmas activities.

Christmas Card Fundraiser

Remember to get your Christmas card orders back to pre-school for Friday 12th October.

Your children's artwork will be reproduced as high quality cards which make a lovely alternative to store bought cards, and every pack bought earns money for pre-school.

Thank you.

September in Review

We would just like to extend a very warm welcome to all our new starters, and despite a few tears, all are now settling in really well.  We have a few more children to start in October but still have plenty of spaces on most sessions for either new starters or extra sessions for our current children.

Don't forget that 'drop-in' sessions, those extra to your child's normal sessions, are available if needed and are charged at the normal session rate of £6.25.

We had our first committee meeting of the year, as well as our AGM, on Monday 24th September with lots planned for the upcoming months.  All of our parents are encouraged to get involved with our committee in whatever way they can - we always need an extra pair of hands when planning events and 'the more the merrier' really does ring true!  If you would like to get involved please let Jayne know.

We are continuing to look at colours and shapes for the rest of this half term, and the children have been enjoying our 'Fantasyland' area which now has a castle, pirate ship and pirate treasure!
