Website -
Did you know we have a website? There is lots of useful information for you on there from information about fees and funding to our policies to useful links as well as a ‘Who’s Who’ at pre-school.

Social Media
You can also find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and these can be great ways to keep up to date with what’s happening at pre-school as well as sharing in some of the fun that we have.

Last Week of Term Fun!
During the last week of term we are hoping to have lots of fun and allowing! We are hoping to have some science based fun as well as a potential ‘water fun day’, so please keep an eye out for texts!

On Tuesday 16th July we are having a ‘Sports Day’ and ‘Teddy Bears Picnic’. Everyone is invited to pop along at 1pm with their teddy bear and have a picnic (please bring your packed lunches!). After the picnic we will hold a very relaxed Sports Day!

If your child usually attends on a Tuesday afternoon please provide them with a packed lunch (and teddy bear!). We would also like to invite all the parents of children who usually attend on a Tuesday afternoon to come along and join in the can of course bring your own teddy and packed lunch too...please arrive by 1pm.

If a Tuesday afternoon is not your child’s ‘usual’ day then please arrive at pre-school by 1pm with your picnic and teddy bears. Parents MUST stay with their child for the duration.

Picnic will be at 1pm and once we’ve all eaten we will have some fun sports games; we might even have some ice lollies as a treat!
We hope lots of you can make it to join in the fun 😃

Useful Information

Changes From September
Fees - All fees will be charged at the new rate of £4.35 per hour. The contribution towards ‘Essential Supplies’ will remain unchanged and continue to be requested at 50p per session, per week, per half term.

Lunch Time - As from September only those children who attend for a full day will be able to have their lunch at pre-school. Parents will still be required to provide a packed lunch and follow our Lunch Time Policy; there will still be no charge for this.

Claiming a Funded Place for your Child
All children aged 3 & 4 are entitled up to 15 hours of Universal Funding per week, with some children entitled to a further 15 hours of Extended Funding per week (often referred to as ‘30 Hours Funding’). Some two year olds may also be eligible to funding. We advise all parents to visit to find out what they are entitled to and how to claim it. It cannot be stressed enough how important it is that parents find out this information and action it promptly. Without correct codes, obtained within specified deadlines, parents may find they miss out on their full entitlement.

Parents who already claim the Extended Funding are reminded of the importance of re-confirming their ‘30 Hours Code’ every 3 months as failure to do this will result in funding being withdrawn. Please speak to Jayne should you have any questions.
