Mums and Dads - we welcome all parent helpers into Preschool. If you have a skill or talent that you could share with the children or a topic that you could talk to them about we would love to hear from you, or if you would just like to come in and join in with a session please do speak to Barbara or Janet who will book a date in the diary.
Over the past few weeks a number of our children have shown an interest in dinosaur play and volcano's. To extend this it is our plan to create a dinosaur habitat, including a volcano which we hope to erupt at the end of term. To help us with this we would be grateful if you and your child could collect any rocks, plants or other resources you think the children can use to create our dinosaur land.
