Dear Parents
We are at the end of our second week at Pre-School and I am delighted with how well all the children have settled. We cant believe how well the children tidy up this year. Well done parents for the training!!!! I would like to welcome our new parents and thank the existing parents for their patience while we settle our new children.
As I am sure some of you are aware we have a new member of staff who will be working in the afternoons with us. Julia McAlpine will be a squirrel and has had more than 10 yrs experience working with Pre-School children in a variety of settings. She is NVQ3 qualified.
Hannah Martin will be volunteering with us one day a week until January and will then hope to embark on her NVQ3 qualification so we will see her more frequently.
The coming Wednesday afternoon will see Jax return to run her 10 Yoga sessions. This is a half hour weekly  small group session which all children are encouraged to access. It is great for their listening, posture and balance.
As many of you are aware we are a committee run Pre-School and we will be holding our AGM in October, which we hope many of you will support. We are looking for someone who could run a Sage payroll as our current volunteer has moved out of the area and has kindly continued to pay the staff over the past year to keep continuity until the AGM.
Fundraising is a must for the Pre-School to survive as the government funding has not increased over the past 3yrs despite overhead cost increasing. There are lots of ways to support, helping with preparation and attending events. Our chocolate catalogues will be out soon so please share with as many people as possible as the commission is used to buy Father Xmas presents for the children at the end of term.
Wishing you all a great weekend.
