Staff are busy preparing the children for their transition to school. Wisps will be celebrating the children graduating from pre-school at their leavers party on Tuesday 25th July. Parents are invited to join the children at 2.30pm in the Infant School Hall.
Wisps are welcoming new children to the setting who are enjoying their settling in sessions before starting pre-school in September. Wisps still have spaces for children who wish to start in September 2017. Wisps are proud to offer the new 30 hours funding, please check the childcare choices website for information and eligibility.
Big congratulations to Toni and her family on the birth of their son who was born on his due date. Toni has visited the setting with her baby so the children can see him and many parents have had the privilege of meeting the baby too.
Wisps will be saying goodbye to Kellyann, who leaves us at the end of the school year after a whopping 8 years. Kellyann will be taking a short sabbatical to spend time with her family during their transition stage before deciding on her future venture. Wisps wishes Kellyann all the best and thanks her for her fantastic commitment over the years. Wisps are sure that Kellyann will pop back and visit the pre-school.
Kerrie will be continuing in her role as Business Manager and will be undertaking the Setting Management position for the remainder of Toni's Maternity Leave. You will find Kerrie in the office 5 days a week from September, she will also be found in the garden or main room of the pre-school at the start and end of each day.
With the warmer weather showing its face, regularly, please send children to school in appropriate clothing with a sun hat and a named bottle of sun lotion.
Water bottles are not needed, children have access to drinking water throughout the day and milk at snack times.
Do you have any items you wish to donate to our summer fayre? We are looking for; unused gifts, toys, teddies, perfumes, bottles (in date, please).
Please can children come to pre-school with a drawstring bag rather than a rucksack as we do not have the space for bulky items. Wisps do sell drawstring bags or you can purchase a drawstring bag of your choice.
We are open for an extra day, our last day of term is Wednesday 26th July 2017.
