Lyminge Pre-School's June Newsletter

Welcome Back!

We hope you all had a lovely half term and we can’t wait to welcome you all back tomorrow.

We have a fun filled term ahead!

Animal Visit

Let’s start with the most exciting event!

It’s been a strange year for us all and we really wanted to do something exciting for the children. Especially as they have missed a lot of days out.

We have arranged for the children to meet some very special visitors.

We will be having a reptile/insect session and a mammal session.

We have made sure that all children will be able to experience both visits.

We can’t wait!

Sports Day

We will be holding sports day on Wednesday 7th July at 10am.

The children will be involved in a number of fun races.

We want to make sure the day is as fun as possible but also safe for all those who attend therefore, we ask that only 2 members attend from each family.

(email to follow with more details about the event.)

Parents Evening

Due to lockdown restrictions, we have really missed our daily chats with all of you about your children and how they are progressing. Therefore, we will be holding a parents evening for us all to have a well needed catch up!

(Information to follow shortly)

Summer Holiday Club


We will be running our Summer Holiday club 9am – 3pm from Monday 26th July to Friday 20th August.

Due to restrictions easing for holiday clubs we will now be able to take older sibling again up to the age of 8.

please book now to avoid disappointment.

A reminder that we are closed from Monday 23rd August to Friday 3rd September so that the staff can have a well needed break and we can give the Pre-School a freshen up for the start of the new school year.

As usual we will only be able to run the Holiday Club should we have enough requiring the sessions in order for it to be financially sustainable.

Lyminge Pre-School Committee

Our Pre-School is a Charity run by a Committee of volunteers. We rely on parents to make up the majority of the members and of course your children are not here long so every year we need new faces.

On Monday 28th June at 7:30PM we will be holding our Annual General Meeting (AGM) via zoom so please join us and consider becoming a part of our committee or our fundraising team.

Please ask Sophie or Karen for more information.

Transitions

It’s that time of year again where we will be saying farewell to 22 of our lovely children and passing them over to school.

We have been in contact with all of the schools and have arranged visits with the Reception Teachers to come and meet your child.

Summer

As we are now in the summer term and the sun has finally made an appearance (YAY!), all children should, please, be wearing 24-hour sun cream before arriving at the setting as well as bringing a water bottle and a labelled sun hat. Our gardens are very shaded but sun protection is very important.

*General Reminders* 

*Please can all clothing and Tupperware be labelled.
*Please speak to your Key Person regularly about any changes at home or any achievements your child has made. Even small changes can have an effect on behaviour or mood.

* Please make sure your child has a labelled water bottle with them.

This is so the children can have access to a drink throughout the day.

 * Please ensure your child's lunch box is balanced and healthy.

* If your child has an item that will require heating for lunch, please let us know at drop off. (We do not reheat rice.)
*To reduce the risk of choking we ask that no whole grapes, cherry tomatoes, olives or Maltesers are in lunch boxes. These can cause a plug in a child's throat. If you cut fruit then please cut lengthways and grapes into four quarter strips.

 

Best Wishes

The Lyminge Pre-School Team
