Dear Parent/Carers,

Welcome to this week’s news.

The children had a lovely week last week with lots of walks around the village and trips to the park.  They also very much enjoyed the shoe shop role play. This week we have a role play Police Station, which we hope will be as successful.  We also have a visit from one of our local Police Community Support Officers Michelle Buckley who will be coming in on Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon.  The children will learn about the role of the police and how they help us.  We are also going to be learning more maths with number counting, sizes and recognising numbers.  We appreciate any support that you can provide at home with this.  Thank you.

I would like to thank all of those parents who kindly donated snack last week.  The children do really love to tell their friends what they have brought in to share.  Thank you.

A few reminders.  Please can I ask that if there are any changes to your child’s health that you keep the Pre-school informed.  This is vital to us supporting your child’s learning and development.  Please could I also ask that you put your child’s name on everything they bring to Pre-school, such as coats, clothes, shoes, lunch boxes, etc. Please can you remember to replace to chain on the back door on entry and exit to the Pre-school.  Thank you.

During the next half term we would like to offer all parents (if you haven’t already done so) the opportunity to share your child’s celebration file and talk to their keyworker.  This will be offered by appointment only.  Each keyworker will have one week as follows:

Emma week commencing                20/02/17

Gemma week commencing              27/02/17

Debbie Week commencing             06/03/17

Cheryl week commencing               13/03/17

Ro week commencing                     20/03/17

Ann week commencing                   27/03/17

Appointments can be made with any member of staff.

The Baby and Toddler Group will be open for business again this Tuesday in the Methodist Hall Shaldon from 9.00 – 11.00 am.  Pauline will have some more exciting activities on offer for you.

Well that’s it for this week, but please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions/queries.

Until next time!
