This week we are looking at the life cycle of a frog. We have some tadpole guests with us for the next few weeks watching how they change and develop through their life cycle. Very exciting!
We have forest school with Hannah running once a month this term, a total of 4 sessions. If you can help towards the cost of this we would really appreciate it. The session is £3 per child, so £12 in total.
Susies songtime will continue with us on a Friday morning. Again this works out at £3 per child for 12 weeks, total £36.
Many thanks in advance.
Wellies at preschool
We would like to ask that each child for this term has wellies in preschool daily. We will be doing lots of water play and mud kitchen activities so to avoid shoes getting ruined we will be putting wellies on the children for these activities. If you would like to leave them with us then please name them and put them on the coat rack. Please make sure the children have shoes to change into afterwards as wellies for day to day play are not practical and socks on the preschool floor are very slippery. For welly weds we can then put boots on when the children arrive but please continue sending them in their outdoor clothing.
We really appreciate any snack donations you can help us with. Crackers, breadsticks, rice cakes, brioche, crumpets, bread etc and any fresh fruit is always welcome. Thank you
We will be visiting Harting primary school tomorrow (hopefully). I am just awaiting confirmation from them but do not see any problem with this. We will head over around 11am for half an hour. I can’t believe this term is upon us already, the children love going to big school and seeing the children they know from preschool.
Pots and pans
We need lots more pots, pans, spoons, trays, spatulas etc for our mud kitchen area. Please have a good dig around your cupboards and see if you have anything spare. If not and you spot anything in a charity shop preschool are very happy to reimburse the cost. We really want to make this space exciting and interesting for the children.
Kayleigh and Leanne are running a summer club.
Age 3-5 (end of reception) 9-3 mon/Tues and weds in the preschool hall.
This will be open for preschool children and the local community so please spread the word.
Weeks commencing, 7th and 14th August, £40 per child. For booking and any questions please email email@example.com
Kings coronation celebration
We have been invited to Harting primary school on Friday 5th May to join them for their coronation celebrations. We plan to have lunch at preschool and then head over to join in the fun from 1-2pm. If you would like to come along with your child please let us know as we will need high ratios that day to ensure the children’s safety. If you plan to take your child yourself to join with siblings then please also let us know so we can plan our staffing levels.
Please begin to think about what sessions and hours you would like for your child in sept. We will be starting to think about our staff hours very soon and have lots of new starters. We will always give priority to existing children first so please let us know asap.
Have a great week everybody!
Leanne and team
