Newsletter May 2017

Welcome back after the Easter break. We have very busy sessions this term and will be focussing on transition to school in the second half of the term. There will be visits to schools with your children and teachers from Foundation classes will be visiting your child in pre-school. Primary school places have now been allocated so please let us know if your child has been allocated a place, other than Menston Primary School, so that we can make contact with them and arrange for visits etc.
With lots of fundraising events planned we are holding a meeting on Friday 28th April (tomorrow!) in Pre-School at 1.30pm if anyone is interested in helping out at any of the upcoming events. Please also come forward if you would be interested in taking on a role on the Committee next year – new members are always welcome. Speak to Heather or Elizabeth Selby.
Tempest Photographs – these will be taken on Tuesday 23rd May. All children attending on that day will have their photo taken. If your child doesn’t attend on that day then please feel free to bring them in at any time between 9.30 and 11.30am. If you would like photos taking with an elder sibling there are a limited number of slots between 8.30 and 8.45. Please let Heather know if you would like an early slot.
Menstonbury Saturday 17th June – Tickets are now available for this exciting evening of live music and food by Tres Bon Raymond. Tickets bought before 26th May will be £7.50 each and after that they will be £10 so please get your tickets early!! Tickets are available from Pre-School.
The Flouride Varnishing team will be visiting on Monday 3rd July. Consent forms will be required for your child to receive this treatment. More information will be provided nearer the time.
Free childcare and Tax free childcare – Some new initiatives are coming on-line to help working parents with their child-care costs. Heather has put together a factsheet and has put these in the pigeonholes of children who will be with us in September. The best website to access more information is childcarechoices.go.uk. From September Pre-school will be offering 21 hours free childcare to eligible parents under the 30 hour scheme.
Bills for this term will be in your pigeonholes next week. Deadline for payment is Friday 12th May. Our hourly rate is still £4.25 and this will increase to £4.66 in September to bring it into line with the hourly rate we receive in grant.
Just a reminder not to leave scooter/bikes/prams in our cloakroom or the foyer as they cause an obstruction when we are so busy!
Thank you to everyone who supported the Bear Hunt. We made £150 – part of which is going to be spent on butterfly kits so that the children can experience the life cycle of a butterfly. We will be doing this after half term so that we can see the whole process.
