CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA

Tuesday 8th December 1:30-2:30

Dear Parents,

As you will of course be aware Christmas activities at pre-school will be slightly different this year.  We will be unable to invite parents into the setting to watch our show and celebrate with the children, and we won’t be able to attend the village Christmas light switch on.  However, we are not letting the restrictions spoil the fun for all of the children or stop our fundraising efforts.

This year we will be hosting an exciting Christmas extravaganza for all the children on Tuesday 8th December 1:30-2:30pm.  If your child attends on a Tuesday then you will continue as normal.  Those who don’t usually attend will need to drop off at 1:30 and collect at 2:30pm. All children are welcome including those from nursery, however we do ask that children are dropped off at 1:30pm.

The Christmas extravaganza is an opportunity for lots of Christmas fun including the nativity, meeting Santa and party games.  Please see the attached flyer for full details.

Please place all returned slips in an envelope and make payment via BACs.  All funds raised will be used towards ongoing projects and improvements for your children.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Tania and the pre-school staff

Halloween 2020

Halloween is obviously very different this year with COVID restrictions, however the staff and trustees have worked had to come up with a few fundraising ideas which will help support playgroup during these uncertain times.

We have lots of spooky family fun for you this Halloween.  Our main events at pre- school will be fancy dress (all week) as well as a bake and craft sale.  Your children will be making spooky treats and decorating clay pumpkins for you to buy.  So please remember to bring some spare change up at drop off and pick up during the last week of the term (week commencing 19th Oct).  We are also providing families from pre –school and in the local community with a Halloween trail and activity pack.

Many thanks in advance for your support with our Halloween fundraiser. We hope to raise some money for some new numeracy and literacy resources for the children.
