Quick reminder pre-school finishes on Friday 22nd October for half term and we are back on 1st November.
Can we encourage you to complete and return Spider Interest pictures and Focus paperwork when they are sent home for your child. The information you give us in these documents is very useful to us as we teach using children’s interests and other information about home life that is important to you and your toddler.
We have had a really good response to our Halloween Party on 29th October. There are just a couple of places left so please return your slip and payment if you want your child to join us for this.
We are still looking for the support of our parents to become Trustees and part of the Management Committee. Please consider how you can show your support for the staff, children and setting by giving a small amount of time to this role. Without these people the pre-school cannot continue to function as it is a requirement of the Charity. If your not sure what might be required of you please ask to speak with Jane. The board is outside each morning if you want to add your name.
Our first fund raising activity will becoming out at the end of the week. So please be a Smartie and join us in raising some money that will go towards the purchase of resources including play sand (£5 a bag), printing ink (£38 twice a year), loo & kitchen roll, disinfectant etc etc that we buy weekly.
We are also looking to raise money to be able to install a more permanent canopy in place of the green canvas one that has seen better days. Can you recommend anyone who can provide and fit one of these or do you know of any business who may like to sponsor this type of work. Come and have a chat if you can help us at all.
Jo & Su have just completed their Forest School portfolios and have submitted them for verification. We will look to celebrate their achievement once this has been completed. The nearest active Forest School to Ridings is in Beeston which is probably why ours is so popular that we have a waiting list for these Wednesday morning sessions.
Dont forget to give our facebook page a look over and like. If you haven’t already joined us on there please send us a friend request and see what our children get up to and pick up on snippets of information we share from other sites.
Happy half term
