Update 16th April 2018

Welcome back to preschool for the summer term.  We have it on good authority that the weather is on the change and the sun will be shining this week.  With this in mind please ensure that your child comes to preschool with 8 hours suncream already applied and also brings in a sunhat.  Please also ensure that they wear appropriate clothing and footwear, no crocs please!

Here are some dates for your calendar:  Thursday 3rd May no preschool due to local elections

Friday 25th May last day of half term

Monday 4th June return to preschool

Thursday 19th July last preschool day, 20th July party day, leavers presentation more details to follow.

This half term we are looking at people who help us.  We are hoping for a visit from the police, a doctor, a physiotherapist and a vet amongst other things.  If you know anyone who helps us in some way we would love to hear from you so they could could also share their expertise with the children.

Next week on Monday and Tuesday the owls are making a welcome return.  If your child does not attend either of these sessions please speak to Fiona or Jo to arrange coming in to see them.  This visit has been made possible due to our parental contributions, if you have not made a contribution we would be very grateful for your support.

On Friday 27th April we have a happy bags to school collection this will give you an ideal opportunity to have a spring clean and support your child’s preschool at the same time.

That’s all for now.

Update 23rd February 2018

Hello from Cuckoo Meadow.  This week we have been looking at spring although next week we are expecting arctic conditions so we may have been a bit premature.  On that note please ensure that your children have appropriate clothing such as hats, scarves, gloves and especially a warm coat!

Pancake date came a little late in preschool but the children enjoyed making them, tossing them and eating them just the same.  We went on a snowdrop hunt and found some just outside the preschool. If you are out and about with your children at the weekend see if you can find any and share with us on Tapestry.

If your child brings in a satsuma for lunch please ensure it is peeled and wrapped in foil to keep fresh.

We are going to be looking at people who help us after Easter so if you know of anyone who would like to come in and tell the children all about their job we would be thrilled to see them.

That’s all for now, have a good weekend.

Update 9th February 2018

Hello from Cuckoo Meadow just a quick reminder that today (Friday 9th February) is the last day of half term.  We return after the break on Monday 19th February.

We have had a very busy week.  On Tuesday we were visited by Julie from a local supermarket who brought in a rainbow variety of fruit and vegetables for the children to explore ending with the children making rainbow coloured kebabs for snack.  Thank you Marianne for organising this visit on our behalf the children really enjoyed it.

We had our final Rugbytots session with Andy on Wednesday this has proved very successful for the children and the good news is that thanks to your voluntary contributions we have been able to book another set of sessions for the summer term, more details to follow nearer the time.

We were also very lucky to have Emma Yau come into preschool and talk to the children about Chinese New Year.  We decorated lanterns and filled wallets with chocolate money and sweets, we hope the children enjoyed these!  Thank you Emma.

That’s all our news for now, have a lovely half term.

Update 12th December 2017

Hello from Cuckoo Meadow.  We are collecting library books in over the Christmas period so that they don’t get thrown out with the Christmas wrapping paper!   We will be giving the children their library books at the start of the next term.

The last day of pre-school is Wednesday 20th December there are NO sessions on Thursday 21st this is party day.  The party food list is now up in pre-school on the toy cupboard door.   Please choose an item you would like to bring in and write your name against it.  There is no charge for your child to attend the Christmas party so this will be the only contribution we ask from you.  The children will receive a present from Father Christmas and also another gift which has been funded by a very generous grandparent.  Please arrive promptly at 11.00, leave your child with us and return again promptly at 12.50 in good time to see the arrival of Father Christmas.

That’s all for now please make a note of these dates and times in your diary.
