We hope you had a lovely half term! The first half term in this academic year has flown by! We are so proud of all the children. It is difficult to remember that all our new children have only been with us for a maximum of seven weeks. They all seem to be thoroughly enjoying themselves and they are quickly forming good relationships with their peers and our staff team. Our children from last year have grown up so much during the summer and they are doing a brilliant job setting good examples to the new children! Thank you to you all for helping your children to settle at Pre-school and for being so supportive. Please do come and speak to any member of staff, or committee if we can help in any way. Good communication is extremely important to us.

We have made some changes to our routine over the last few weeks. These changes seem to be working really well for all the children. It will be interesting for you all to see what we are doing when you come in for your Parent Helper sessions.

Over the next seven and a half weeks, we are going to be very busy. It is difficult to believe that we will shortly be starting our Christmas songs, craft activities and our play. During the Christmas topic, there will be very little to take home each day because we will be making Christmas surprises. We refer to surprises rather than secrets, as it is important that the children know that it is not good idea to keep secrets; however, surprises for Mummy and Daddy are very exciting!

The children will continue to play in our lovely garden throughout the colder, wetter months. There are often puddles and muddy patches in the playground that are always attractive to the children, so please make sure that your child comes suitably dressed! Please bring waterproof clothing for your child and ensure that all clothing and footwear is named.

Finally, on behalf of the staff and committee, please do continue to support us with our fundraising events by attending with your family and friends, as well as offering to help! In order to purchase new equipment and to extend and enhance our existing resources for your children, we rely hugely on our Fundraising activities.

Thank you all!
