Newsletter November - December 2021 –The planning sheet printed at the back of this newsletter gives you more details of the topic of the week as well as the number, letter, shape and colour of the week including a few other details.


Welcome back and we hope you have had a great half term break and are ready for the next half term. Remember if you need to come into preschool, we would appreciate it if you could continue to wear a face mask or covering.

Cauliflower Christmas Cards

Thank you so much for buying your child’s Cauliflower cards we are hoping to have them back with us very soon.


Christmas Craft Day – Saturday 4th December: This year we are hoping to see the return of our Christmas craft day. As we are currently unsure if restrictions will change at any point, we will be running a different kind of craft day. This will involve either families coming into preschool to make their crafts, or if we (or yourselves) are unable to do this then we will also be selling packs and sending out video links so that you can create these at home.


Tombola prizes – As part of the craft fair we would also like to run a tombola if you have any unwanted gifts at home, you are willing to donated then please send them in. I.e. – bubble bath, chocolates, wine etc. Also items suitable for children would also be good.

Collection of Children: Could you please let us know if someone different is going/likely to be picking up your child. Could you please ensure that everybody around your child knows you PASSWORD.

Our phone number is 07955 16 88 92. Thank you.

Afternoon pick up has had to be changed back 3.30pm, thank you.


Payment of fees: Just a reminder that fees are payable within one week of the receipt of the invoice we would be grateful if you can stick to this deadline as it creates a great deal of extra admin checking the bank account. Of course, if there is an issue at any point then please speak to one of the staff.


A few reminders please:

< > Could we ask you to please cut grapes in half (this was highlighted in our First Aid Training)NO NUTS please (no Nutella or peanut butter).


Happy Birthday to Imogen, Jonah, Cora, Alice, Georgina, Jonah, Jack
