Hats and Gloves. Pre School

We have now purchased enough hats and gloves for each child in Pre-School- we are finding that a lot of items seem to be going missing and this can cause upset from the children as they get themselves ready for outdoor play. Going forward if you could leave your child’s own hat and gloves at home this would be a great help. 

Thank you.

Half Term

If you do require any additional care for siblings throughout half term, we do have some availability at our Kirkdale After School Club which is located in New Mill. If you would like to enquire about this, please call nursery or OOSC on 01484 688915.
