Exminster Pre-school news – update for May 2019

We would like to say a really big THANK YOU to everyone who supported our Easter fundraising – you helped to raise £68.57 which was used to buy a magnetic building set.

The children have lots of events and activities to look forward to over the Summer term. Our learning focus is Transport and we’ll be investigating planes, trains, boats and even space travel! The children will also be helping to care for, grow and water our pre-school allotment, which is starting to look ready for the season ahead. If any parents/carers would like to help look after our allotment, please see Leah.

Cygnets sessions, for those children starting at Exminster Community Primary School in September 2019, have got off to a flying start. We would like to thank Exminster Community Primary School, and in particular the Reception staff, who work with us to enable these invaluable sessions. Please speak to Leah if you would like to apply for a place for your child and haven’t done so already.

Sports Day will take place on Tuesday 7th May at 2pm at Deepway – all children (and parents!) are welcome; the reserve date is the 21st May.

Our Annual General Meeting will take place on the 25th June. The AGM provides an opportunity to hear about the progress of pre-school during the last year, as well as an update on our plans for the coming year; everyone is invited to join us on the evening.

The AGM is also when the Committee is elected; we would love to see some new faces so please do consider if you can support us by becoming a member. The Committee help to organise and run fundraising events and help to make decisions about how pre-school is run; the Committee has overall legal and financial responsibility and our Pre-school can’t run without it! If you would like to be more involved in our community Pre-school please have a chat with Leah.

The last day of the Summer Term is Friday 19th July; half-term is 27th–31st May and please note that Monday 6th May is the May Day Bank Holiday and pre-school will be closed on this day.
