This page is full of information for our current families but is also a snapshot for prospective parents to see the kind of opportunities we offer our children.

It contains news and events, themes, payment information, funding details and anything else we feel is useful to know.

To see what we've been up to on a daily basis check out our facebook page by clicking the facebook logo.

HOW DOES THAT EFFECT ME?

Unfortunately the 6.2% increase in the national living wage is having a knock-on effect for every business and we are not an exception.

We've had to review our fees and charges to families to enable us to continue paying our staff.

NATIONAL LIVING WAGE

WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT

We will be removing the registration fee. From now on ALL new families will be subject to an administration fee of £40.00. 

AND our hourly rate is increasing to £5.50 per unfunded hour attended.

ADMIN FEE

FROM APRIL 2020

Having realised the positive success of the snack fees, we understand that the current system is unfair so we will be charging 50p for every day your child attends. Hopefully everyone agrees this is a much fairer system.

SNACK FEES

Please see our Facebook page

We are doing so many different activities it is impossible to list them all here. Please follow us on Facebook, or look out for notifications on your Famly Account from your child's keyworker.

Sponsored Week of fabulous activites

This week we are having fun by doing unusual activities and raising some money at the same time. Check out our Facebook page to see Sam, Karen, Zoe and Charlotte having an egg and spoon race. 

Roll up! Roll Up! The Circus is coming to Town!

Our Circus week has been a great hit with the children involving lots of exploration of all things under the 'Big Top'. We've had lots of red and white painting, making clowns, using forks to draw lions, tight rope walking, trapeze exercising, custard pie throwing and puppet shows to name a few.   

Farms & Zoos get snowed off!

Due to the snow we decided, from Wednesday, the farm and zoo animals could wait for another week. The children had great fun playing in the snow instead :)

Who let the dogs in?

Gail brought her dogs in to see the children, teach them how to behave around dogs and show them how much fun they can be. Jazz and Boo had fun showing the children their agility skills and some fabulous tricks. Check out Playmates Pre-school Raunds Facebook page to watch the video :)

Chinese New Year and Our Pets

After half term we will be celebrating Chinese New Year with many arts, crafts, games and cultural food. As it is "The Year of the Dog" we will be asking the children to bring in photos of their pets. We will also be having a demonstration of dog training and learning how to stay safe around dogs.

Take a look at our all-weather garden

After many years of fundraising we have finally raised enough money to make our back garden an all-weather surface - so no more wellies needed HOORAY! Take a look at how our children are really enjoying their outdoor classroom during every session :)
