Research! Please complete this survey to help us improve Pre-School!

We would be grateful if all parents could complete the survey at the link below:

It will take just 5 minutes and will help us to get an idea of your thoughts on Pre-school and what we offer.

(You may have already completed this (it has been on several social media pages) – if this is the case, no need to do it again).

Thank you for your assistance!

Uniform Orders for Next Term

Twinkles parents -It’s not too late to order uniform for next year! Uniform at Pre-school is not mandatory but it can help keep the children’s own clothes nice, and they do like to dress like the staff! If you would like to order some uniform, see order form attached.  Please print and hand in at Pre-school. It also helps us to raise a few pennies with every order. Thank you!
