Growing season

Posted on: 22nd May 2018

The children have enjoyed planting seeds and seedlings in the garden, they are

caring for them daily and we hope to be able to sample our crops in the near future.

Chicks visit

Posted on: 8th Mar 2018

We were really lucky today today to have some small and very fluffy visitors at preschool.

The children all enjoyed meeting the 1 week old chicks, and handled them with great care.

We would like to say a HUGE thank you to Harriett and her Mum & Dad for providing this

lovely opportunity.

your feedback as this enables us to take on board your thoughts and feelings.

We received some truly wonderful comments from you, which tells us what we’re

doing is right for you and your children. The staff have been made aware of your comments.

Our space themed mural continues to grow with the planets and space ships being added by the children.

Spring is here!

Posted on: 6th Mar 2017

As another winter draws to a close and Spring gets underway, we look forward to another successful year.

Firstly we would like to thank Richard, Skylar’s dad for his efforts in making the new mud kitchen.

It’s a great success and will give the children hours of fun as the weather improves.

Last week the children, families and staff visited the Sea Life centre in Great Yarmouth, and had a great day.

Take a look at the photos on our Facebook page.

The week ended with Gina introducing the children to Harry the herring, smoked salmon,

and a sushi preparation session.

No one can say the preschool takes the easy option!! Sorry to all parents whose children arrived home

slightly smelling of fish last Friday. It’s all part of the learning experience!

Don’t forget our garage sale in May. This is always a fun day, a great way to clear out all those things

you know you don’t really need.  Make some cash and support the preschool. For further details
