Preschool Team Staines


This week we’re pleased to publish our Preschool Team Staines area. Pumpkins continues to be busy and we recently spent a really enjoyable afternoon at Wraysbury Primary School with their foundation team. We are working together for a smooth transition with our Pumpkin children moving on to WPS.

We discussed lots of great ideas and Pumpkin penguin will be joining WPS in September too. It was really nice meeting up with some of the past Pumpkin children who made us lovely drawings to bring back to Pumpkins and show our children.

This week our theme has been the seaside and we’ve had great fun making cakes, drawing ice creams and lollies, sandcastles and boats with glitter and paint.  We’ve also set up our gazebo in the garden for plenty of shade and once again, a reminder to parents to ensure your child is protected with sunscreen before coming to preschool in the morning.

The children have been practicing writing their names by joining dots and thanks to great weather, we’ve been able to do this outside.

We’re now looking forward to our annual Sports Day which takes place on Wednesday 25th June and we have a professional photographer visiting Pumpkins Wraysbury and Horton next Wednesday 18th June – we’ll post on Facebook as soon as photos are available.

We’ve been building our team and are delighted to welcome Christina who is our new addition to an already great team.  Christina has enrolled to start her NVQ Levels 2 and 3 this September 2104.  We’re delighted to let you know that Sam will not be leaving us after all and remains our very popular Supervisor at our Horton setting.
