Autumn Newsletter- October 2018

Termly Themes

Our themes for this term are Autumn and Celebrations. We have been collecting and looking at vegetables including pumpkins, as well as leaves, conkers, and acorns. After half term we will be starting to think about celebrations as we lead up to Christmas.

New Faces

From 5th  November our new Teaching and Learning Manager, Kay, will be with us working alongside Lisa, our Business Manager, they are joint managers and will drive the pre-school forward together.

Kay will be helping us to develop new and exciting ways of developing through play. She will be working directly with the children Wednesdays Thursdays and Fridays, and Lisa will continue to work with the children Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Kennedy, who stepped in to cover on a temporary basis, will leave us at half term but you may still see her from time to time as she will step in to cover if required.

We also have a few changes within the Board of Trustees, you will be able to meet the new Trustees at the AGM. A huge thankyou to all the Trustees, without whom the preschool could not run, they do a fantastic job behind the scenes to keep us up to date and well resourced.

Diary Dates

Crich Preschool AGM : the AGM for the preschool Board of Trustees will take place on Friday 19th October in the Quiet Room from 3.15 to 3.45. We have attached the invitation form for you to complete if you are attending.

The preschool will have a stall at the Autumn Fair on Saturday 20th October at the Glebe Centre.

The photographer is booked for Thursday 15th November 2.00-5.30pm. If you are able to attend early please do so, it can be very busy after 3.30pm and waiting times will be longer.

Our annual Christmas Shopping Event will take place on Saturday 24th November. This is a great opportunity to pick up interesting and unique gifts without having to brave the crowds in shopping centres. It is also one of our biggest fund raisers so please come along and support us.

INSET Day : The preschool will be shut on Tuesday 18th December. This is due to the room not being available to us on that day, we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Suitable clothing

Can we remind you that the children go out every day to play in the outside play area (or sometimes over to the park or for a walk around the village). Please make sure that they have a coat as well as a jumper/hoodie as it can be cold on the playground.

We would also like to remind you that all clothing such as gloves etc should be named and it would help us if you could put hats/scarves/gloves etc into your child’s coat hood when you hang them up, as this helps us speed up getting everyone ready to go outside. The children are getting much quicker at putting their own coats on with only a little help from us, thank you.

Can we also remind you that drink bottles, which the children can access all day, should only contain water, not squash or fruit juices.

And finally….

Last term we took part in the annual well dressing tradition and were delighted when we were approached by the well dressing committee who have donated some of the proceeds to Crich Preschool. A big thank you to all those who helped make our contribution.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have anything you want to discuss with a member of the team

Kind Regards

Kennedy, Lisa, Tracie, Sadie, Kim and Joyce
