Little Popples Pre-School

Welcome to Little Popples pre-school.

We currently have four members of staff on role all with relevant qualifications and one member of staff undertaking a level three in childcare. We were rated 'good' at our last Ofsted inspection in February 2018 where it was observed that all children make good progress in their learning and development. We are all very warm, welcoming and kind offering good links with parents and the schools that children move onto. We are committed to providing children with the best possible Early Years provision.

This term we will be focusing on the theme 'All about Me' and the children will be learning about themselves. We will be encouraging identity, sense of community and allowing them to explore their senses and feelings.

Our Far Field session will be a Monday morning, hall time will be on a Tuesday morning. We also will have PE on a Thursday morning. Everyday please provide appropriate clothing, sensible shoes, wellies, a small bag with a change of clothes, a warm coat and enough wet wipes and nappies to last the session if your child requires them.

If your child would like to bring in a toy from home for 'show and tell' please ensure it is small enough to fit in your child's tray or bag. If your child is going to have grapes/cherry tomatoes in their lunch box please cut them in half. You are probably aware of recent choking incidents and whilst we are happy to cut them here, it is not always possible during a busy lunchtime to stop children eating them before we have done so. If there are other pieces of fruit your child will eat we recommend that you just leave grapes out of their lunchbox altogether. Please ensure there is a spoon for yoghurts and a drink. Please clearly label your child's lunchbox.

If your child is going to be absent from a usual session please call us to let us know.

Please note that parents are requested to drop off children in the playground at the pre-school drop off point. Pre-school sessions are 9:00-12:00 and 12:00-3:00 or all day sessions are 9:00am to 3:00pm. Please arrive promptly for collection and drop off at these times!
