Our Library

Please continue to enjoy using our Preschool lending library. As you all know, books are displayed in the front hall every day.
Encourage your child to select a book and log it in the blue record book. Children love to take a book home to share and it provides a lovely link between home and Pre-school.


Admin notices

Your Summer Term invoice: The summer term runs for 12 weeks. Your invoice will be prepared and emailed to you by Friday 3rd May. The deadline to pay your invoice will be Friday 17th May. We kindly ask our families to settle their invoice by bank

As you are aware on a termly basis we kindly ask our families to make a voluntary donation to a maximum of £40 and this will be shown on your invoice. It is entirely voluntary and there is no obligation to make a contribution but all donations help preschool enormously. Please note we are unable to claim Gift Aid on voluntary contributions paid using childcare vouchers. So if you wish to contribute, we would ask families to make a separate payment by bank transfer or cheque.

Gift Aid: We can reclaim Gift Aid from the Government on any voluntary contributions that we receive providing that you are a UK taxpayer. By completing a Gift Aid form we can reclaim 25p for every £1 received. Thank you so much to all of our families who have completed a form. It is very much appreciated and makes a huge difference to us.

Fee Increase: As previously advised, with effect from April 2019 fees for 3 and 4 year olds increased to £5.80ph.
