Last Day/Leavers Assembly

If your child is leaving us at the end of the summer term, then they will come to pre-school as normal on 20th July and their leavers assembly will begin at 11.30. (If your child does not attend on a Friday they can come in at 11.15) As the hall is used in the afternoon we will need to be finished at the latest by 1pm. If, however your child is returning in September and they attend on a Friday their last day will finish slightly early at 11am. If you are having a problem with this, please come and speak to a member of staff.

Sun cream

If you bring sun cream to school for your child, please could you take it out of your child’s bag and put it in our sun cream box. We only require sun cream on the full days as on the other days this can be applied before school.

Healthy Early Years (HEY)

As the weather seems to be getting hotter and we have been told it could last well into August I thought it would be helpful if I shared a link with you that I found very interesting. I’m always looking at which is the best sun cream to buy and am often overwhelmed by the choice around and which is the best. NHS Choices have a whole section on sunscreen and sun safety which was very helpful.

School trip (CHANGE OF DATE)

Our school trip to Trethorne Leisure Park is fast approaching and is on FRIDAY 6TH JULY. We will make our own way down to the park and meet at the reception area at 10am. The Park has given us a group rate of £7.00 per adult and £7.00 per child over the age of three, which is payable on the day. The children can have a donkey ride although this will cost an extra 50p. All children will need to be accompanied and if you are able to offer a lift to another parent, please could you let a member of staff know.
The pre-school will be closed on this day.

Safeguarding

As part of our ongoing safeguarding procedures could we please ask that mobile phones are not used on the premises.

Absent from Pre-school

Please could we ask that if your child is absent from pre-school, you give us a call on the morning of their session.

September sessions

If you require any extra sessions for September, please speak to a member of staff. The sessions soon start to fill up and we would like to offer them to our current children first.

Session Price Increase

Just to inform you that session prices will increase from the start of the new school year. From September 2018 prices will increase from £12.00 per session to £12.50 per session. Lunch fees will remain the same at £5.50.

Bag 2 School

Many thanks for your contributions to our Bag 2 school collection. I’m pleased to tell you that we raised £65.
