This week we have been :
- creating transient art in rice and sand;
- playing with shape tiles and mats;
- painting dinosaur footprints with our feet stampers;
- making potions and mixing materials – sand, soil, flour etc.
Welcome back to everyone. We hope you had a good break.
Please remember with the cold weather to bring gloves, hats and appropriate outdoor coats and shoes for playing outside.
The Christmas Fair this year was on Saturday 2nd December 10.30-12.30pm. It was a lot of fun and busy.
There was a lot of things to do including:
Raffle, Luxury Tombola, Lucky sweet cups, Crafts for Kids, Face painting & Hair Braiding, Children’s Advent Tombola, Find Santa’s hat, Drop the Nose on Rudolf, Refreshments & a special visit from Father Christmas in our amazing grotto.
A massive Thank you to everyone that attended & helped out, your support is very much appreciated. Also a special Thank you to all companies & individuals that donated items. With all your help the event raised £1,347.53, which is a fantastic figure.
We will advertise what the money gets spent on in due course (if you have something specific that you think the pre-school would benefit from purchasing then please do let Emma Hinde or a member of the Committee know).
The Pre-School Committee & Staff would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
We had a lovely number of parents/carers attend our Coffee Morning downstairs at Pre-school on Thursday 16th November. We were able to offer advice on using Tapestry as well as information in regards to the 30 hours Childcare & Tax Free Childcare. It was lovely to see so many small children there as well, many that will be joining the pre-school over the next couple of years & also the opportunity for parents & the Committee to just chat. Thank you for your support.
