Halloween Fun & Committee Meeting!!

So as we start our last week of this term just a couple of reminders for everyone.

Firstly we shall be having a bit of Halloween fun with the children over the week and all children are invited to wear their fancy dress outfits.  We will also be face painting again (now we know how good the staff are at it!!) and we have asked all parents to donate £1 per child so that we can buy some more face paints.  If you haven't yet made your donation please remember to bring it in this week - thank you.

On Wednesday 23rd October we will be having a committee meeting at The Risley Park Pub at 7.30pm.  This will be to plan and organise our upcoming Christmas Fair; we are always on the look out for new ideas and helpers so please feel free to pop along and lend a hand, it really is appreciated - see you there!

Photo Morning

We have had great fun today getting our photos taken, even the staff joined in!!  Tempest Photography were absolutely fantastic and all the photos taken were beautiful.

Children who had their photo taken today will be bringing home proofs for you to look at and make the hard decision as to which photos you like and how many you need!

The photos will make ideal Christmas presents for those hard to buy for relatives and all orders will generate commission for pre-school.  Everyone wins!

Please get your orders back to pre-school by Wednesday 23rd October - thank you.
