Can anybody help?

During this spring term i would love to make some enhancements to our outdoor area.

So far the McKeough family have cleared leaves and built a fab roof for the chickens. They have also agreed to construct a lid for the sand pit.


Can anybody

  • use the pallets to build ‘parking bays’ for our cosy coupe cars. We would love 6 bays each numbered 1-6 for the cars to live in. The idea being each car has a number and then needs to be put away in the correct space.
  • Make wooden sign arrows to identify areas – nature trail, sand pit, mud kitchen, climbing frame etc.

If you think you might be able to help then please speak to a member of staff.

Thank you!

Toy collection

Mrs Eder (Zoe’s Mummy) is collecting toys this week. She would like to take to a collection to the children’s ward at Northampton General Hospital. If you have any good condition toys that your children have outgrown then please send them to preschool and we will pass them along to Mrs Eder. We are sure you will all agree this is a worthy cause!

Many thanks

Fundraising Help!

Dear Parents & Grandparents,

As we had a small event at Christmas, our main fundraising event will be in the summer this year.  The Summer Fete & Leavers Graduation Ceremony will be held on Wednesday 15th July 4pm – 6.30pm.  So get it in your diaries!

So with that in mind can I please have a show of hands for any parents or grandparents who wish to help in any small way they can.  It would be really nice to see some of our new parents join in.  It’s a great opportunity to make new friends.  All new parents will find a Parent’s Skills Audit in their child’s drawer and I would really appreciate it if you would complete and return it asap.

If you are already known to us and have helped before please let me know if you wish to carry on or not…… not want to automatically presume you are!

First thing we need to do is write to, visit or email local companies who may donate a raffle prize for our cause.  If you have your own company perhaps you may wish to donate a cash prize, if not try asking your employers?  If for any reason you have any unwanted Christmas gifts (surely not!) please send them our way for either the tombolas or raffle prizes.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Mrs Young (Fundraising Lead)

On the way…

The panto group are on the coach and on the way back to preschool. We’re later than anticipated so due back to preschool by about 5.10 – traffic allowing.
Please do not try to take your children until we dismiss them from inside the building.

Pantomime on Wednesday

Any children attending the panto on Wednesday afternoon: if you have one please ensure your child is wearing their preschool jumper.

This helps for the children to be easily recognisable within our group.

Many thanks
