Pre-school Photographer – Preschool Session and Family Day
The pre-school photographer is coming into pre-school on Friday 20th September 2019.  If your child does not attend this session and would like their photo taken, please let Caroline or Lisa know.  Alternatively you can book in for the family photographs on Saturday 12th October 2019 (open to family and friends), again please book a slot with Caroline or Lisa.

Due to children moving on to school, we will be losing some of our Committee Members.  We cannot run the preschool without a parent committee.  If you are interested in joining the committee, please speak to a committee member, Caroline, Lisa or just turn up to one of the meetings. Thank you for your support.  Our next meeting is our AGM on Thursday 3rd October 2019, 8pm at the Queen B.
