Hello from Cuckoo Meadow Pre-School! This term the children have been learning all about the Tiger who came to Tea with roar-some masks, role play and colourful painting. As the weather has improved we have been spending more and more time outside and in the park, enjoying every moment of Spring that we can. On the wetter days we have been learning about rainbow fish, baking delicious biscuits all made and iced by the children. And of course we all raised money and donned our noses for Red Nose Day which was enormous fun. In April we will have an Easter break of two weeks (after lots of egg-cellent games) before throwing ourselves into summer fun – the children and our devoted teachers cannot wait!! For the latest news do visit our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/cuckoomeadowpreschool.

Having a clear out? Do drop any donations at Cuckoo Meadow during opening hours by the garage door – and let us know you’ve done so. 19th April is the deadline for receiving clothing, paired shoes, handbags, belts and accessories. Bag 2 School will weigh our donations and money goes straight back into the Pre-School for new equipment and toys for the children. We are still crossing our fingers for that water table!

Following the theme of online support, we also invite you to take part in the Cuckoo Meadow Pre-School lottery. This lottery has been set up specifically to raise money and make a difference for our children. It’s a fantastic way to bring parents, carers, teachers and the wider community together, in partnership with our Pre-School, and at the same time give something back. Visit http://www.YourSchoolLottery.co.uk and search for: Cuckoo Meadow Pre-School. 

Lastly, may we please ask again that you continue to support us – and thanks so much to the parents (past and present) and community members who have been in touch. Please do consider us on http://www.smile.amazon.co.uk and http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk. Allocating ‘Cuckoo Meadow Pre-School’ as your nominated charity on either of these platforms will mean that shops such as John Lewis, Argos and many more donate a % of your purchase price directly to our Pre-School – and at no extra admin for you!
