I’d like to begin by welcoming you to St Andrew’s Pre-school. Once again we have a mix of children returning for a second year, siblings of previous pupils and brand new families and I hope that your children are as excited as I am to be part of this new year! Having said that, we all appreciate that the beginning of a new Pre-school year can be accompanied by a wide variety of emotions and I’d like to reassure you that our excellent staff team are very experienced in settling everyone in to the Pre-school. It can be a big change to all our children and parents, whether they are continuing or new, so if you have any questions please do approach any member of staff or Committee.

I’d like to thank the outgoing Committee for supporting the staff to deliver another great Pre-school year in 2016/17. We start this year with a full Committee who are all listed in this Newsletter. A couple of the committee are staying on for their second year but others are just starting so please bear with us as we learn the ropes! As you know the pre-school is a charity, which relies heavily on volunteers. We are always delighted to hear from anyone interested in getting involved in any way. There will be various events coming up this term that are fantastic ways to get to know each other better as well as supporting the preschool with fundraising so please do come along!

If you would like to provide any feedback on your experience so far, we would love to hear from you. Anonymous feedback can be left in the suggestions box in the front hall, or get in touch via email or in person at pre-school.

We’re really looking forward to meeting you in September and getting to know you through the coming term.

Sarah (Chair)
