Orchard Pre-School





Dear Parents/Carers


This is the last newsletter for the school year as this term leads up to the summer holidays.

We would like to thank you all once again for your continued support in keeping everyone safe by following the guidelines for social distancing when dropping off and collecting your children.  This will continue into the final term.

Thank you for sending in water bottles for your child. Please can you make sure your child’s name is on the bottle and please do not send juice. The water bottles are available for your child to access throughout the session and are kept in key person group boxes. We also take the bottles with us for outdoor play in the garden. At snack time the children are offered milk or water from a cup along with their snack.

If your child stays for lunch, please could we ask you to cut grapes to prevent a choking hazard. 

This Term

We are having a summer raffle at the end of term. Any donations of new unwanted gifts would be gladly accepted.



The children leaving in July are making a Leavers keepsake tea towel which will be available to purchase later in the term. Payment can be made when the tea towels have arrived. There will be some extra available if you haven’t already ordered.

Please let us know when your child will be visiting their infant school for transition stay and play sessions.


  • The Pre-school will be closed on 5th July.


  • As we use the garden a great deal this term, please would you make sure that your child wears sensible shoes as flip flops can dangerous when the children are playing outside. Please would you also make sure that on sunny days, any sunscreen is put on before the pre-school session and that your child has a sun hat.


Please inform us immediately if your contact address or phone number has changed.

              Don’t forget to complete the collection form and let me know if anyone except you   

              is collecting your child.

  • Please read the Covid policy and refer to the government website if your child or anyone in your household has coronavirus symptoms.

  • If your child is not feeling well, please make sure they stay at home, sickness bugs needing at least 48 hours before returning to pre-school.
