Parents are asked to give prior notice of holidays taken during term time. Please inform the preschool of the reason your child is unable to attend on the first day of their absence. Please be aware that days missed due to sickness or holiday will still be charged and cannot be additional days cannot be given in lieu.
If you have a message to relay to staff, teachers are available at the beginning of each morning and at the end of each day to speak to. If you do not personally bring or collect your child, please do so in writing. Do not send a verbal message with your child.

Your child will be able to bring something from home each week to show to the class. You will be informed when your child is “Showing”. Please do not send your child with items from home at other times.
Birthdays are celebrated at snack time. If you would like your child to bring a special treat or cake to share, please notify the preschool in advance.

Suggestions, Questions & Problems
To discuss any suggestions, questions or problems you may have concerning your child or the preschool, please do not hesitate to contact the Manager, Mrs. Sandra Case to make an appointment. You may also approach any member of the PTA.
If you feel that you could give some time to help at the preschool, it would be most appreciated. We need volunteers to help in the kitchen, with gardening activities and to read to the children. Please speak to Mrs Case for more details.
Parent Teacher Committee
Our Parent Teacher Committee provides parents with many opportunities to become involved in the preschool, by organising events like coffee mornings, concerts and fundraising. Any parent interested in becoming involved in this committee can do so by contacting Mrs Case, who will pass your details on to the Chair of the Committee.
Positive Behaviour Policy
The preschool environment is one which endeavours to reflect the love of God, not just in word but in deed. It is important for children to experience God’s love through people, to feel accepted, valued and secure. We believe that encouragement and positive response to children are very important, as is correction when needed.
At this stage of development young children need boundaries to help to give them security. One of the ways we can create this is to set limits, having certain expectations of their behaviour. Our commitment is to “Train up a child in the way he should go”, as is stated in the Bible. As difficulties arise, we will talk to the child explaining the nature of the offence, making clear right and wrong, and guide them towards making right choices, apologising and asking and receiving forgiveness.
Expectations we like to maintain in our preschool include:
- Respect for teachers and consideration towards one another.
- Honesty, obedience and cooperation.
Parents will always be informed of any need to discipline.
