Last week the children learned about Remembrance Day and made poppy pictures to remember the people who keep us safe. We watched an early years video on remembrance and they have all understood in their own way why we wear poppies:
” to remember someone” says Hannah
” cos people died when they looked after us fighting, but we winned , I don’t know why they fight because they die” says Carys.
These pictures are the adult examples of the Christmas cards that the children have made. The cards are being then sent to a company who will turn your child’s art work into Christmas cards.
The Christmas cards are part of our fundraising and the proceeds will go towards improving our Pre-school.
If you would like to view your child’s work please speak to a member of staff after the holiday.
All order forms need to be returned to Pre-school by Monday 6th November. Unfortunately late returns cannot be sent.
Thank you in advance!
Pre-school will be having a fancy dress day on Tuesday 31 October – children can come in wearing a fancy dress outfit (doesn’t have to be Halloween related, can be any fancy dress!)
From today (Tuesday 17 Oct) Christmas card order forms will be coming home with your child.
The Christmas cards are a great way to help Pre-school raise much needed funds for equipment and improvements.
If you would like to see your child’s work before you order please see a member of staff.
All order forms need to be back by Monday 6th November.

We just wanted to let everyone know that Ysabel will soon be leaving the Pre-school to move on to pastures new. Ysabel’s last day at the Pre-school will be Wednesday 18th October.
Ysabel will be missed by all of the children and staff and we would like to wish her all the best in the future.
PreSchool Staff & Management Committee.
Just a reminder that it is our Annual General Meeting tomorrow at 7.30pm.
We need one family member for each child to attend if possible – the purpose of the AGM is to report to our members (families) on the previous year and to vote in the new Committee.
Without a Committee then Pre-school cannot open so the meeting is very important, please do try to attend if you can.
It won’t take up too much of your time. If parents need to bring their children to the AGM they are more than welcome. (Some Pre-school staff will be sitting at the back of the room with colouring books etc to entertain them).
Thank you in advance.
Next Thursday (21st September), the photographers will be in Pre-school to take photographs of your little one.
If your Pre-schooler isn’t normally in on a Thursday, you are more than welcome to bring them in to have their photograph taken.
If this is the case, please note the following times to take your child in:
Twinkles – please bring them into Pre-school for 11:30am
Stars – please bring them into Pre-school for 12:30pm.
If Thursday is a normal session day for your child, please bring your child in at their normal time.
If you have any problems or questions, please speak to Mel or Mary.
Sadly we have had a couple of cases of sickness and diarrhoea in the first week back to Pre-school.
Please note that it is essential you keep your child off from Pre-school for 48 HOURS FROM THE LAST BOUT to help stop the spread of the infection.
Thank you for your co-operation!
A couple of little things our supporters and parents can do to help us raise much needed funds:

Each time you online shop it raises funds for us and you don’t have to do anything at all!
