New arrivals!

Yesterday, the children were waiting patiently for the chicks to arrive…

And this morning…we have some chicks…..!


Stars – Reception Places

Primary school places were announced today.  Once back at Pre-school, please can all Star parents let a member of staff know which school their child was allocated so that we can prepare for transition. More information will be given to parents nearer the time!

Thank you!

Welcome back!

A reminder that Pre-school opens again on Wednesday 19th April! The staff are really looking forward to seeing all the Twinkles and Stars again after the Easter break.

We are especially looking forward to meeting our new “Sparkles” when they start with us next Tuesday (25th April).


Easter Craft Competition – Winners and pictures!

Our children excelled themselves with their Easter competition entries!

Our Twinkles made brilliant Easter Bonnets – and the winners of the chocolate bunnies were Ivy-Mae and Esme M! Well done!

Our Stars decorated some amazing eggs the winners of the chocolate bunnies were Estelle and Lewis! Congratulations!

Every child received a chocolate egg for the hard work that went into their wonderful creations!

A few photos are attached below….

Have a lovely Easter everybody from all at The Village Pre-school!

Sainsbury’s Active Kids Vouchers

We are collecting Sainsbury’s Active Kids Vouchers again this year!  Vouchers are available to collect until 2nd May and need to be turned in to Pre-School by 30th June so that we can place our order.  Please see the Active Kids website to see what equipment your vouchers could help us get!

Primary School Places

Stars Parents – A reminder that the closing date for applying for your child’s primary school place is midnight on Friday 13 January!

Information about which place your child has been given will be sent out on Tuesday 18 April.

NB If your child will not be going to Gorse Covert Primary please let staff know soon as you can which school they will be going to, so they can liaise with your child’s new school over the summer term to arrange visits etc. Thank you.

Head Lice

There has been a case of head lice in our morning group! If your child has head lice please treat (see your pharmacist for the right treatment – or they sell treatments in Asda etc.)

Children with head lice will need to stay away from Pre-school until they have been treated and there are no more visible in their hair. Thank you for your co-operation.

Chicken Pox

Chicken Pox is doing the rounds at the moment – and we know of at least one case at Pre-school.  Just so you know, symptoms can be cold-like symptoms, runny nose, temperature and obviously the rash.  We ask that children are kept off Pre-school for between 5 to 7 days or until the spots have all scabbed over. Thank you for your co-operation.
