March brought us mixed weather (as always!), but we have been taking the children out for fresh air and exercise when it’s not too grim. They’ve enjoyed the space the field offers and loved kicking a football around.
Indoors, we’ve been celebrating events such as St David’s Day, Mother’s Day, World Book Day and International Women’s Day. We’ve planned our learning, craftwork and our Book of the Week around these themes. We hope the mums loved their Mother’s Day surprises and that our work around International Women’s Day helped the children realise that both girls and boys can be anything they want to be!
We’ve also started some of our green-fingered activities. We have plans to grow lots of vegetables this year and the children have already enjoyed planting potatoes, onions, spring onions and carrots. Don’t forget that you can keep up with all the activities at Preschool by lining our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/www.buckdenpreschool.co.uk/.
We have limited spaces available for September, so to avoid disappointment and ensure the sessions you require will be available, please get in touch soon. We can now offer appointments for you to have a tour, see what we do, and talk to the staff.
To enrol your child or arrange a visit, contact the Manager, Nicola Henge, on 01480 810600.
Urgent appeal: Preschool needs committee members to remain open
As a charity-run Preschool, we are legally required to have a committee of a certain size to continue operating. When children move on to primary or out of the area, their parents, carers or relatives who were part of our committee often move on too, so we need new members to come forward regularly. We are now in urgent need of new committee members before our numbers drop too low.
Even if you don’t have much time to spare us, please consider joining. We are a friendly and sociable (pre-pandemic, and hopefully, post-pandemic!) group and welcome any help you can offer. You do not have to be the carer or relative of a Preschool child—however, we do have to ensure that parents or guardians make up a certain percentage of our committee, so it’s essential we recruit new parent/guardian members too.
