Coronation Celebrations

Please remember in the summer term, once the sun starts shining, to apply suncream to your child before coming to preschool, an all day suncream is ideal, if not please let us know if your child needs a top-up during the day.  Please remember a named sunhat, wellies and waterproofs are still needed during the summer months for water play.  No open-toed shoes/sandals please.

Stower Provost Community School (SPCS)

 Miss Buxton, Reception Teacher from SPCS will be visiting the children who are moving into her class in September at preschool this half term as part of the school transition.  She will use this time to get to know the children, as well as them becoming familiar with her.  During these sessions she will read stories or join in with an activity with the children


Thursday 4th May 9.05am till 9.30am

         Thursday 11th May 9.05am till 9.30am

         Thursday 18th May 9.05am till 9.30am

         Thursday  25th May 9.05am till 9.30am


If your child is not moving on to SPCS please email preschool with contact details of your child’s new school so that transition visits can be organised with their new teacher, thank you.

SPCS children will have received a letter from Miss Buxton regarding visits to their new classroom after half term.  For children who attend preschool on those mornings please bring your child to preschool and we will take them over to school via the school field and collect them at the end of the visit, unless of course you would like to take them in yourself.  However, for the last visit on Thursday 3rd July please take your child directly to school as the session begins at 9am.  We will collect the children at 10.50am if they come to preschool on a Thursday.

If you are unsure of anything regarding the school transition, have any questions or would just like to clarify something please do let us know as we appreciate that there is a lot to take in at this very exciting and busy time.
