Sunday ‘Work Party’

We recently held a ‘work party’ to complete some odd jobs around the pre-school and to create some new areas for the children to investigate.

Thank you to those of you who came on Sunday 24th March.  We really appreciate your help.   I hope you liked your cake!

The children have really enjoyed the new areas we created so a big thank you from them too.

Sponsored Triathlon

Thank you to all children, families, staff and committee members who made the Sponsored Triathlon such a successful event.

We are very proud of the children and all of their efforts.  The children and staff really enjoyed the four sessions and hope you did too.

We have raised a lot of money for the pre-school to purchase some resources for our outdoor area.

As soon as all the sponsorship money has been collected I will let you know how much we have raised.

Thanks again.

Welcome Back!

Happy New Year to all our families!  We hope you have had a great break and are looking forward to the new year.

Thank you for all the lovely Christmas gifts and cards.

As you all know Rachel Blackwell left us in December to enjoy her retirement in Dorset.  We will miss her a great deal and wish her lots of joyful travels in the coming months.

I am very excited to be the new manager of Little Acorns Pre-school and hope that you do not find the transition from Rachel to I too bumpy!  There will be a few small changes e.g. the new parent information board on the deck, but I hope you find them worthwhile to you and your children.

Please come and talk to me if you have any questions or queries. My door is always open!

Jo Blunden

Dear parents,

I just wanted to say a big thank-you for all the lovely cards and presents you gave me at the end of term. I also had a wonderful retirement party on my last day which was arranged by the staff and the committee , so many thanks. The memory book with so many lovely comments was very special and something I can reflect on.

I have now settled into my new home and  look forward to doing some travelling.

I wish you all a Happy New Year.
