Latest News

It was lovely to be able to re-open the pre-school on 3rd of June after being temporarily closed due to the Coronavirus but we all managed to keep in touch with the children weekly through videos, letters, stories and songs being sent.  The children came back so happy and excited and they just carried on where they had left off in March which was lovely to see.

With changes to our daily routine, extensive cleaning and reduced opening times, we started with the topic of the world around us looking at - Where we live, Northamptonshire, Great Britain, London and The Royal family.  We talked about Summer and all the different types of weather.  The children enjoyed lots of outdoor activities, they picked and ate the peas, herbs, raspberries and strawberries we had grown and they planted flowers, tomatoes and sunflowers too.

We used our fantastic outside areas taking many nature walks, making nature crowns, leaf rubbing and mud painting and the children enjoyed the spinney area looking for different insects, finding wildflowers, pond dipping and cooling down with some water play.

We said goodbye to 9 children in July who are moving on to primary school but we are looking forward to September when we will welcome new children into our pre-school family. We can also start to promote our fantastic pre-school again and the children can enjoy lots of lovely Autumn/Winter crafts and activities together.

If you are looking for a small nurturing pre-school for your 2-5 year old, we have some spaces available from September.  If you would like to know more please get in touch with Trisha on 07546 440572 or email through our Facebook page, so we can arrange a visit and chat.
