This month at Willoughby Pre-School…


This month we’ve watched our caterpillars transform into beautiful orange butterflies.  We’ve learnt about numbers though songs, books and role play with our pretend flower shop.

The much awaited warmer weather has meant we’ve been able to make the most of our outside space.  The children have especially enjoyed the paddling pool and other water play.  We’ve also been busy practicing for our sports day on the 15th July.

Our older children have enjoyed settling in sessions at school and to celebrate this move parents/carers of our older children are invited to afternoon tea on 18th July.

Our last session before the summer break is the 24th July 2019.
