From September 2019 we will be increasing the fees to £16-50 per session and £5-50 for lunch club for those parents that are not using the funding entitlement.
This is the first increase we have made for several years but is necessary to cover our operating costs. If at any time you are unable to pay your child’s fees due to family circumstances we suggest that you speak to us to discuss options.
Before Christmas the children enjoyed finding out about and making bird feeders which we hope were used in your gardens. This year Pre-school has signed up to take part in the Annual RSPB Survey and we thought you might also enjoy doing this at home over the weekend. Here is the link to the page where you can find resources to download. If you do join in we would love to hear all about it in your child’s Tapestry learning journal.https://www.rspb.org.uk/get-involved/activities/birdwatch/?channel=paidsearch&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI56XkjtWG4AIVSuJ3Ch0uYwJEEAAYASAAEgLNhvD_BwE
Nativity Parents words 2018
Its that time again! Here is information for you on this years Nativity.
The Nativity is on Tuesday 18th December, there are no usual sessions on that day and so all children must be accompanied by an adult. We are going to open our doors at 9am to you and the children, please bring the children dressed in their costume (see below!). Take your seats, family members are welcome too. We aim to start at 9-30, the children who will be starting primary school in September 2019 will be on the stage you should keep your little ones with you. I will call the older children to meet the staff at the back of the hall for our procession, please let a member of staff know if we have missed your child. It can be a little overwhelming and not all of the children are natural performers, if you want to join your child on the stage to calm them that is fine too.
We are busy learning some words and songs at Pre-school, we would very much like your help with the first two. I have added a file with the words and music.
After the performance there will be a moment for photographs and then we will send your children back off the stage down the stairs (right hand as you are looking at it) nearest to the kitchen. We are able to allow you to photograph the performance this year but can we please remind you that this is entirely for your own viewing and should not be uploaded onto social media with out the express consent of other children’s parents.
Costumes – All children to wear dark clothes with tinsel
We will end our morning with a coffee and cake (can we please have donations of cakes and mince pies on the day) a Christmas raffle (we would love donations please, the theme is gifts for adults – wine, candles, chocolates etc.) and a visit to see Father Christmas who will be arriving from the North Pole!
The event is due to finish by 11-15am
Please see information contained in this poster
On Tuesday I had a visit from Mrs Dutton, the Assistant Principle and Lead Foundation Stage Teacher at Darlinghurst Academy. They have a few events coming up that I think may be of interest to any of you who would like a closer look at the school.
Firstly they are inviting parents with children due to start at any school in September 2019 to book onto an outdoor learning session to experience a fun learning session in their grounds. The next session is on 1st November at 9-10.15am, If you are interested please email email@example.com
They also have an open evening on Thursday 18th October 4pm to 8pm for parents and children to attend. Please see their website for more information.
