Newsletter February 2019

NEWSLETTER, Spring Term 1, 2019

This term we have already enjoyed lots of exciting walks, music with Funkie Munkies and games with Sporting Chance.  We are increasingly busy this year, and would like to thank all our parents for recommending us to friends and family. We were delighted to welcome Indianna, Mollie, Jude, Rosebay, Rosie, Oliver, Tesni, Max and Henry to pre-school this term.

We would like to invite all parents to enjoy a session with Funkee Munkees on Wednesday 20th March at 9.30am. This is an opportunity for you to join your children and have some fun. For those who do not normally attend on a Wednesday, please come along for the hour with your child and see what it’s all about!! There will be some refreshments and a chance to speak to your child’s keyworker, and we will be holding a raffle in aid of the NSPCC to support Marie with her London Marathon fundraising efforts. If anybody would like to donate a prize or sell some tickets, please let her know.

Staff – We would like to formally introduce you all to Carley who also joined us just before Christmas as a full time member of the team. Sadly, we also said goodbye to Kerry and Louise at Christmas, who have both decided now is the time to embrace new opportunities. We wish them both well with their future careers.

Tuesday 23rdApril– due to inset days affecting staff, although we will be open, we will be running on less staff than usual (but still appropriate amounts legally!). Please could you advise Marie or Helen if you are not intending your child to be at pre-school on this date so we may plan accordingly.

Christmas Fundraising – Thank you for all the donations to the Pre-School Christmas raffle which with the teas and coffees made £233.35 for new resources, and thank you also to all those that attended the Christmas Nativity. The feedback we have received has all been positive and we hope you agree it was a really good day!

Looking forwards – September 2019 – if you would like to increase your child’s hours at pre-school, please think about this now and plan ahead. We are already receiving lots on enquiries for September. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE IT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE!! We do not like to say no to anybody but recently have struggled to accommodate all requests for extra sessions. Please email info@whitchurchpreschool.comwith any changes you would like.
