I hope that you have all had an enjoyable and relaxing Christmas break. Thank you all so much for the lovely gifts given to us at the end of term. It was so generous and thoughtful of you all. The staff team were very touched. We hope that you all enjoyed receiving your child’s ‘Christmas Surprises.’

I would like to welcome our new family to Pre-school. I hope that you have a very happy time with us at St. Andrew’s.

We would like to follow our letter, number and colour of the week more effectively from this term. Please do encourage your child to bring in related items for ‘Show and Tell’.

Termly reminders!

Amanda would like to do her termly check of your Personal Details Forms over the first few weeks. Please make sure that you arrange to see her.

Please remember to name your child’s clothing and footwear. Although this is a termly reminder we do still have lots of unnamed items. Please check the large lost property box in the corner of the cloakroom and the benches in the front hall and look through the coloured boxes for items left behind at the end of the sessions.

At home time please remember not to call your child, or beckon to them across the room! If your child runs over to you, please help us by reminding them of the need to stay on the carpet until you take their hand. This is for your child’s safety!

I would like to wish you all a VERY Happy New Year on behalf of the staff team.

Hilary Coome
