Settling in Questionnaires

We aim to provide a high-quality service for all our children and parents. We regularly review our practice so that we can highlight areas for development or improvement and we welcome your views to assist us with this. We are interested in what you, as parents, think of the service you have experienced to date and would like you to complete a questionnaire.

Naturally we welcome positive comments but we are equally interested in receiving constructive criticism or new ideas so that we can continue to develop and improve our practice for the future. Questionnaires will be handed out from next week. Thank you.


Extra Sessions

We have a limited number of free sessions throughout the week. If you would like extra sessions for your child, please speak to Sue to check availability.


Teddy Bears’ picnic

Don’t forget – Your child’s Teddy is invited into playgroup next week.

We will be making yummy jam, honey and marmalade sandwiches for a Teddy Bear’s picnic


Parent Helpers

Do you have a talent that you would like to share with the children? Maybe you can play a musical instrument or have a love of reading or singing…

If so, we would love you to come and spend some time with us at Playgroup. Just let us know when you can spare some time.



Have you signed up to Tapestry?

Please speak to a member of staff if you are having problems activating your account.

Don’t forget you can add your own observations to your child’s journal.
