Every second Wednesday of the month, we are unable to use the village hall BUT we are able to use a space at Alpington and Bergh Apton Primary school, thanks to staff.
The children have to carry their bags, lunchboxes, wellies etc themselves when we walk to the school so can we please ask that they have suitable size bags that they can manage, rucksacks are good because they can have them on their back, freeing up their hands to carry a lunchbox and hold a partner’s hand It would also be great if Sound of the week objects are small on those afternoons so we can pop them in their bag, if not we have to leave them in the cupboard at preschool. If they are unable to carry their bags, wellies etc we will have to leave them in the cupboard.
If anybody is able to help walk us down to the school at 1.20-1.30 we would be really grateful. Please see Daisy or Theresa .
New committee members
A high number of our parents will have to leave the committee in September 2020 as they have been on it for 4 years or their child is leaving preschool to go to school so we need you!! Preschool have to have a minimum number of committee members to be able to run, without committee members we would have to close the doors to Cottontails. Please see Daisy or a committee member if you are interested in joining, the sooner we can start the process off the better so the transition of committee in September can be as smooth as possible.
World Book Day is on Thursday 5th March so we will be having a World Book Week the week beginning Monday 2nd March. Children can come dressed up as a favourite book character if they would like to!
Dear Parents and Carers,
The cost of each session (morning or afternoon) is now £14.00 which keeps our setting competitively priced and within the same price banding of preschools in the local area. Preschool receives less than this from the government for ‘funded children’.
Fees are now issued before the next block of sessions begin and payment will need to have been made in full before the children return to preschool. Failure to do so will put your child’s place at risk.
If your child is funded this does not affect you unless you pay for extra sessions above and beyond the 15 hours.
