Committee Meeting

Our next committee meeting will be at pre-school on Tuesday 6th February at 7pm, everyone is welcome to come along.  We would like to welcome our two new committee members, Beki (Sylvie’s mum) and Steph (Henry’s mum) and also to say a big thank you to the members who stepped down from last year, without such amazing support from our current and past families we would not be able to run.



If your child is funded in the Spring Term your funding form will be sent home for completion shortly.  Please ensure these are completed and returned before the Christmas break and that you complete the form fully, i.e., child’s full name as per birth certificate and address as per your council tax bill to ensure that County are able to check the correct details, thank you.
