Special Events/Activities/News

School Pictures

Helen Ellis will be visiting the preschool on Saturday the 12th of November to take individual photos.  There is a list on the notice board with the time slots you have booked.  If you haven't yet booked, there is limited space available, so please come to the office and see Fiona.

Christmas Fayre

The children have been practising their favourite Christmas songs, ready to wow all the parents.  So Please come along to our Christmas Fayre on Thursday the 1st of December, 5 - 6:30 pm at the Old Town Hall, Chapelhay.  We will be doing a raffle and any prizes you are able to donate will be much appreciated.  Raffle tickets will be on sale in the setting.  We will be selling children's crafts, cakes and lots more.  We would like the children to attend in Christmas outfits.  Anyone that would like to help, please let us know.  Keep looking at the notice board for more details.

School Christmas Party

The party will be held on Wednesday the 14th of December at 12:15.  All children are welcome to attend, and if they are not booked in on that day they will need to be dropped off at 12:15 and collected at 2:30.  We will not be having packed lunches on this day, and we ask all children to bring a plate of party food.  A notice will go up on the parents board, so that you can choose what food you would like to bring.  During the party, around 2pm, we will have a special visitor for the children!

Children in Need

We will be taking part in the Spotacular event which runs from the 14th to the 18th of November, to ensure that all our children can take part.  We ask that they wear something spotty and provide a donation.  This is optional as we will be making things in the setting also.

Primary School Places

Please ensure you have applied for your child's primary school place if they were born between the 1st of September 2012 and 31st of August 2013 by the 15th of January 2017.  We would ask you to also let your child's Key Worker know which school you have applied for.


Tapestry is working really well as a link for parent communication.  Please comment on your child's observations/photographs as we love to hear from you.  Key workers are available if you would like to talk to them about your child's progress.
