A reminder that the morning session finishes at 1pm, please ensure that your child is picked up promptly.

Check out our Facebook page for reminders of dates etc and to keep up to date with what’s going on.

Please check on your child’s supply of suncream occasionally so that we don’t ever run out and please bring a sunhat for playing outside each day.
