Wow Moments


We will be sending home more ‘Wow Moment’ notes. We know that children do some amazing things at home too, and we want to hear all about them. Whether it’s building an amazing lego tower, swimming a length of the pool, writing their own name or recognising numbers up to 10 we would like to know all about it. It’s really important for us to work in partnership with our parents to aid your child’s learning journey. These slips will be added to your child’s Learning Journal and will help us to individually plan our next steps. 

This Term 


The first two weeks at preschool have flown by.  We have welcomed some new children to preschool and they have settled in really well.  We have been using circle time as an opportunity for the children to talk about themselves, their family and pets.  They have all enjoyed learning about each other.

Here are some pictures from the last two weeks…

Help needed to support our free milk


Dear Parents,

Until now, our committee member Sally Beaumont has very kindly been liaising with the Cool Milk scheme in order that our children at Pre-school receive free fresh milk on a daily basis.

Sally’s little girl left pre-school a year ago and she has very kindly continued to organise this but she is now stepping down from the committee and so has asked that someone else takes over organizing the milk.

I would like to also take this opportunity to thank Sally for all her work with the Pre-school committee.  ALL committee roles are 100% voluntary (and Pre-school cannot exist without it) and Sally has gone above and beyond to support Pre-school over the last 3.5 years.

We would be very grateful if another parent would take over the role of organising the milk.  You do not need to join the committee to do this although you would be very welcome to! 🙂 Sally tells me the role, in total, takes about 30 minutes of time per month.  I am very happy to give you more detail of what needs to be done, please email me at

If we are not able to find someone to do this, we will not be able to continue to receive free milk.

Many thanks





West Hoathly Pre-school Parent Voice/Leavers Questionnaire July 2017


Dear Parents,

West Hoathly Pre-school is very keen to learn your views, and ask that you take a few minutes to answer the questions on this survey, one which we carry out twice a year. The answers you provide will allow the Pre-school to effectively reflect on its performance, and help make any changes that may be useful.

Please answer each question by ticking the response you think most reflects your feelings or opinion on each question. There is space at the end to make any further comments you would like to include.

You do not need to identify yourself on the form. We really appreciate your help in this matter, and value everyone’s views. This will enable us to greater understand any weaknesses or strengths that may be detailed.

If you would like to see the responses to, and actions from, our last Parent View form, please click:
