Happy New Year and welcome back to Pre-school, and a special welcome to our new families! I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas break and are looking forward to 2018.

I’d like to start by thanking all our members of staff for their hard work over last term. The Christmas play was fantastic, I’m sure we all loved seeing the children doing such a great job. I can’t imagine the work that goes into organising the children to do the Nativity play and sing all the songs, so a huge thank you to the staff for making all that possible. Thank you also for everyone for contributing to the food for the Christmas party on the last day of term. The children had a lot of fun and the Diddi Dance session was great. There are a lot of enthusiastic little dancers amongst our children!

A few more people to thank from last term – massive thanks to Karen Roach for organising the amazing raffle. It was a huge amount of work to get such fantastic prizes and organise everything so a huge thank you! Thank you also to Honesty and Donna for organising the Christmas cards and tea towels, they are lovely and I’m sure enjoyed by all who received them over Christmas.

Thank you to everyone for doing their parent help sessions last term. I hope you all enjoyed the time to see Pre-school in action and get to know the staff and children better. Just a reminder to please let us know as soon as possible if you need to swap your session for any reason.

Finally, a reminder about the Race Night on Saturday 27th January! It’s a great evening, really good fun and a good chance to get to know everyone better. More details to follow but book your babysitters now and invite friends and family! It’s only 3 weeks away and you definitely don’t want to miss out! Looking forward to seeing you all back at Pre-school on Monday.
