We cannot believe the time has gone so quick.  When we come back from half term we will only have 7 more weeks at pre-school!  This is a really important term for our children leaving for school and we will be supporting all the children with transition to their new school.  We have also booked dates for the leavers’ parties with more details to follow.


Thank you for supporting us with our Easter activities.  We have raised a total of £490 from the toddle, raffle and treasure hunt.

Please remember to bring back any outstanding sponsor money as soon as possible.

Thanks again you are all amazing!


Busy Bags

We have six small Busy Bags for you to take home and share with your child.  They are available to all parents and can be found in the basket on top of the self-registration box



It will soon be time to start counting the Sainsbury’s Active Kid Vouchers, so if you have any more at home could we ask that you bring them in asap so we can send off our order for some lovely new play equipment.

Thank you for your support.


Early collection of children

We do appreciate that, from time to time, you may need to pick your child up early from Playgroup and we really want to help you with this. However, we do ask that you try and keep early pick-ups to a minimum as these can cause some disturbance to our other children during small group activity time.

Thank you.



The Photographer will be at Playgroup on Friday 23rd June between 9am and 4pm

Sunny Weather

Hopefully we will soon have some lovely sunny weather!

Parents are encouraged to apply a long lasting suntan lotion shortly before arriving at playgroup. And please don’t forget a sun-hat!

Please note, due to our policies we are unable to apply suntan lotion.

Please see the NHS website for more information on sun safety http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/skin/Pages/Sunsafe.aspx#children



During the summer term, we will be planning activities based around “Under the Sea and Make Believe.”  Our core books will be Rainbow Fish and Gruffalo.

Please let us know if you have any great ideas for activities you think the children will enjoy.
