Dear Parent/Carers,

Welcome to this week’s news!

I would like to thank those parents who donated various items for snack.  Thank you.  I would also like to thank the few parents who came to the EGM on Monday evening.  More details about the outcome of the meeting to follow.

This week at Pre-school the children have been enjoying an Optician’s role play.  They have been learning about similarities and differences, mark making and various physical development, such as pencil grip and moving in various ways.  So please encourage your children to engage in these areas at home.  If you need any help or ideas on how to do this then please don’t hesitate to ask a member of staff.  Thank you.  Next week at Pre-school we will be having a shoe shop role play so do you have any shoe boxes or shoes (sorry no high heels) that the children can role play with?  Please can you bring them in from Monday next week.  Thank you.

A few reminders.  Parents are NOT permitted to park in the church anywhere.  The parking is strictly for staff only.  The staff need to have access to their cars at all times.  The staff finish work at different times and some have to pick their own children up so please DO NOT PARK in the church.  Please ensure that your child has a drink and spoon (if applicable) with their lunch.  Please remember to let us know by phone or email if your child is or is going to be absent from Pre-school.  Thank you.

Please find attached term dates.

The Baby and Toddler Group continues to welcome you every Tuesday at the Methodist Church Hall from 9.00 am until 11.00 am.  Pauline is now running the Group and always offers a friendly ear.  Sometimes it’s nice to go along and chat to other parents with a cup of tea or coffee while the children play in a warm, safe, friendly environment.

Well that’s it for this week.  Until next time!
