Easter Bunny Bounce Sponsorship Money

On Thursday 30th March we held our annual Easter Bunny Bounce, Easter Egg Hunt and Easter Bonnet Competition at the pre-school. There was a bouncy castle, space hoppers and mini trampolines for the children to raise their sponsorship money on, a  bonnet parade and an egg hunt in the playground. If you still have sponsorship money to bring in to the pre-school please do so asap – thanks!

All money raised will go towards our new Woodland Experience Area

Volunteers Needed

If you have the time and inclination to lend a helping hand once in a while then we are compiling a list of volunteers whom we can call upon to assist us. It could involve accompanying the children up to the Primary School for outings, filling in for absent staff when needed, or any other contribution you would like to make (any musicians or crafts people amongst you parents?)

Many of you ticked the volunteer box on your child’s enrolment form, but we are now formalising this – thank you!

Wine Tasting Fundraiser Thank You!

Thanks to everyone who helped, contributed or attended our Wine Tasting event on Saturday 7th May. It was a great success, a lovely balmy evening and Victoria Aldwickle was amazing, engaging and fun. The feedback has been fantastic and we raised over £700 to go towards an awning for our decking to protect the children from the elements and allow free flow play.
