Welcome to Autumn 2016


We hope everyone had a lovely summer and welcome to the Autumn Term 2016. We are looking forward to working in partnership with you to ensure that your child has a positive and rewarding learning experience with us.

Starting at Preschool is an exciting and sometimes anxious time for children and parents. We aim to make this settling in process feel secure and supported. We work in partnership with parents/carers to help children settle with us quickly and happily. We will give you lots feedback about how your child is progressing over the first few weeks and please ask us about any issues or queries you have. Find out more about us and the Early Years Foundation Stage:


Little Owl Teddy Family Event

We are planning a social event for all our families 3-5pm Sunday 25th September. We have moved this event from 11th September, so apologies if that revised date causes inconvenience.  Bring a Teddy to join in the fun! There will be activities for the children e.g. messy play/arts and crafts and the staff will be there to chat with you and of course it will be an opportunity to meet other parents and eat cake!


Little Owl Breakfast Club

The Breakfast club will be for children aged 3-11 years old and open from 3rd October 2016. It will be run 8-9am in the school hall. See more details on our webpage.


Monday Afternoon sessions

We are hoping to open a Monday lunch club and afternoon session after October Half Term. We have some interest already, so please let me know if you would like a place for your child.


Children Centre – What’s on over during the Autumn Term.

The programme of events running at Children’s Centre is available to see at



I am stepping back from my hands on role at Preschool although I will continue to be the manager and oversee the running of it. Margot, Helen and Sarah are going to be working with the children throughout the week and taking over my key children. We will be talking with you about this if that affects you.

There will be more information about the activities and planning for this term available at Preschool. Please ensure your child has appropriate clothing for the weather, we like to jump in puddles! Also, please note that we have a no nuts policy in lunch boxes for all children due to potential nut allergies.

We look forward to seeing you all next week.
