Pre-School Nursery Terms and Conditions

Free Pre-school Events – everyone welcome!

Spring 2017

Diddi Dance sessions are held every Monday at 10.30am. Children from 2-4 years are welcome to attend alongside our own nursery children. The sessions are lots of fun and help build co ordination, motor skills and moving to music whilst making new friends. Parents are invited to stay and enjoy the sessions alongside their child.

Treetops Tuesdays – come along and enjoy an afternoon in our very own woodland. A story, crafts and outdoor play are the order of the day (weather dependent). These sessions are held every Tuesday afternoon from 1pm – 2.30.

Please call school on 01995 603016 to check availability.

Treetop Tuesday – Frozen – Tuesday 31st January 2017

The nursery children loved our ‘Frozen’ themed forest session making bark rubbings of castles and using sugar cubes to make their own snow covered mountains.  The snow storm drama activities were very exciting and everyone had a snow-tastic time!

Play and Stay Session – Tuesday 17th May 2016

Lots of outdoor, messy fun in the sunshine!

Making Bread – Monday 25th April 2016

Forest Friday – Friday 22nd April 2016

Everyone had an awesome time walking through the jungle today and creating dens for jungle animals!
