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!

Christmas Party

Santa is on his way! Our Christmas party will be held on the last day of term, Friday 18th December from 10.30 a.m. There will be plenty of games and fun, party food and a visit from you know who!

Nativity at St Mary’s

This year our nativity pageant will be held in St Mary’s Church on Tuesday 15th December at 10 .30 a.m. Extended family and friends are all welcome to come and watch the children in costume singing and ‘performing’ and there are refreshments provided for everyone to mingle afterwards and chat over a mince pie.

OPEN DAY

If you are interested to see what we are all about then why not pop along on Friday 27th November either between 9.30 – 11.30 a.m. or 1.30 – 3.30 p.m. You can speak to the staff, see our children enjoying themselves and take a look at the kinds of activities, resources and provisions we have. There will be refreshments and your children can stay and play.

HALLOWEEN PARTY THANKS

Thank you to everyone who came to the Halloween Party on Saturday and to all the staff and helpers who made the event run smoothly and so much fun. There is a second winner of the pumpkin competition to be announced but this time YOU VOTE – go to our Facebook page (thread is on the bottom of the website home page) to view all the entrants and simply ‘like’ the one(s) you think deserve to receive a prize. The winner will be announced on Sunday 15th November.

GO APE SUCCESS!

Thank you to everyone – staff, parents, participants, cheeky monkeys and of course Jonny and Georgie at Go Ape – for making the sponsored fancy dress Tree Top Adventure such a success this year. Everything ran smoothly, the tea party looked and tasted splendid, there were some genius costumes, lots of energy and a whopping £2,800 has been counted so far with more funds to come in.

QUIZ NIGHT THANKS

Thanks to everyone who came to our Quiz night at the Village Hall on Saturday. The attendance was great. Money raised will be posted in due course.

NEW AFTERNOON SESSIONS FOR 2015

Our afternoon sessions are filling up so get in touch by emailing alisongvp@gmail.com asap if you are interested in your child attending from 1.00 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. Places will be offered to enrolled children initially and then on a first-come-first-served basis.
