Summer term

We can't believe how quick this year has flown and we are now entering the summer term!

This means lots of children are preparing for beginning new chapters in their lives, transitioning into pre-school, starting reception, moving on to secondary school.

We have a fun term planned; this half term focusing on travel and holidays with the Early Years children.

At afterschool we can now spend the full evenings outside due to the lighter nights and have lots of fun things planned e.g. den building, clay modelling and more.

Sunny weather

We hope that over the summer months the weather will pick up and become much warmer.

Please can we remind you to bring a spare change of clothes for water play, as well as any wet accidents/changes of clothes your child may have.

In addition if you wish for sun cream to be applied to your child please provide this (labelled) in their bag and inform staff of when it was last applied. We ask that on warm days all children have sun cream applied before entering the setting then we can re-apply or better still use (8hour cream)


We have a new member of staff starting after the Easter holidays; Marica will be joining the team and working primarily in the baby and toddler room. She is currently completing her NVQ level 3 and has experience working with children 0-5. We are excited to have her on board.

30 hours free childcare

If your child is 3-4 years old they may be entitled to 30 hours free childcare a week. To check your eligibility please speak with a member of the management team who can give you further information.

This term we have a new menu that is available to read next to the kitchen or on the parent information board and website.

Booking forms

Booking forms are now out for the half term June-July and also the may half term holidays. Please ensure you return forms by the priority date on the sheets to secure any future places. This is now particularly important as we are oversubscribed in many areas of the setting and failure to re book will result in places being allocated to new parents.
