Please could we ask for children’s clothes, shoes and drink bottles to be labelled clearly with their names.  It would be a great help to us at home time when we are having trouble identifying which items belong to which child.

Many thanks for your help

Being mum


The children returned today after the snow forced us to close last week.

The children had the play kitchen out today. They had great fun cooking and serving food to each other. At circle time we asked some of the children to tell us what their mums do for them at home – we had some lovely responses!!

The children had a large giraffe drawing laid across the floor and they enjoyed colouring it in.

The children have began making “surprises” for their Mummy for Mother’s Day, but you must not ask them about it as it is a surprise. (We do not say it is a secret as children should not be encouraged to keep secrets from their parents).

Pre-school Thursday


At the moment we are planning to open tomorrow as the main roads to West Hoathly are currently clear and there is no snow forecast this evening. We advise that you walk where possible and avoid driving on the road between the Fox and the church. We will update you in the morning if this changes. It is due to snow from 12 noon so please keep an eye on the weather and pick your child up early if you feel necessary.
