Please remember to collect your children’s welly boots. If they are not collected by Friday 17th July they will be thrown away as we expect most boots will be to small for the children when they return in September.

If your child is moving on to school remember to download their Tapestry journal. You should have received an email link. Once you receive this link you have 30 days to download before it expires.

Following our time in two bubbles over this past term we are coming to an end. Bubble A children finished for the summer today and Bubble B will finish on Friday. We wish you all a safe, happy and relaxing summer.

To those of you returning in September we currently plan for a ‘normal’ opening. The day will begin outside with drop off beginning from 8.45 to allow for a more staggered start. All children must arrive by 9.10 at the latest so we can start our registration. Unfortunately parents will not be allowed to enter the setting until further Government guidance allows it.

I will send further information closer to the time. In the meantime we thank you all for your kindness, support and trust over the past year.

Best wishes

Emma and the team.

Graduation celebration video

Dear parents and carers,

Please head over to Tapestry using your home learning link to view our graduation celebration video.

Things are very different this year but we still wanted to share with all you some moments from the children’s journeys.

We thank you all whole heartedly for your support; those who are leaving us and returning again in September.

To our graduating children: we wish you all the best and will miss you all dearly. When it is safe to do so we will try to arrange a ‘reunion’, a get together to see how each of you are managing. With this in mind, now is not the time for goodbye, rather, we will see you soon!

Best woshes

It is with regret that I have to inform you we are not able to hold a graduation for our preschool leavers this summer.

The children who are currently attending will have a small party afternoon within their bubbles (separate email to follow).

I understand this is difficult for everybody and we would love a chance to get together when it is safe to do so.

Please look out for an upcoming video where we will present a virtual certificate to the children. I hope to then post these out to you all.

We have truly felt privileged to be a part of each of your children’s journey’s and wish them good luck as they begin their next adventure.

Best wishes

The welly trolley will be in the car park this week (dry weather permitting). Please can you collect any wellies you may have at the preschool, even if your child returns in September. Any wellies left at the end of term will be thrown away.

School leaver children only

Dear parents,

Today you should receive an email from tapestry allowing you to download your children’s Tapestry journals. Please follow the link and ensure you download and save it on your personal devices, a memory stick or CD.

Now that the downloads are initiated this means that you can no longer add your own observations and staff have stopped observing too.

The home learning tab remains active until the end of term.

Children going to Abington Vale and Bridgewater will have their journals transferred. If I am able to also make your journals downloadable then I will.

If you need any support please send me an email or telephone peschool on Monday or Tuesday next week.

Best wishes

Children transitioning to school

Dear parents,

The time has come for us to organise transition reports for your children. For this we need to work with you to gain your view as well as our own. Many of you have already spoken with Mrs Sanderson but if you haven’t then please check your emails and reply to my questions.

Thank you to those of you who got back to me so promptly. We hope to have all of the reports completed by the end of this week and will be asking you to sign them. We will then send them to your child’s school.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Best wishes Emma

Outdoor learning

Dear Parents and Carers,

As you are all aware our provision is currently outdoor only. This is to enable a safer environment for the children to play and learn. All guidance suggests that the virus does not spread as easily when outside. In addition, if we were to use inside the number of children allowed to attend will be reduced meaning some spaces would be cancelled. This is not something I want to do as I know many of you need to be back at work and the consistency for good quality childcare is of our utmost importance.

I understand that Group B have been unfortunate with the weather but have seen some amazing sensory learning opportunities as they explore the rain. Please be aware that while we do have some wet suits available our numbers seem to be dwindling as they are not being returned. I strongly advice that all parents supply a wetsuit and well fitted wellies (we do have old ones on site but these cannot be shared so if your child does not have their own you must bring them in with you before the session).

Group A have been much luckier but please remember that while the weather is hot we do need your children to wear suncream and bring a hat.

Next week, the early part of the week is due to be warm but wet, whereas from Wednesday it looks set to be very hot. We have plenty of shelters for both hot and wet weathers and we have been making good use of them.

All staff are working their hardest to ensure your children are safe and well cared for. It is a difficult time for everyone and we appreciate your support at this time.

Best wishes
