Little Stars Christian Preschool
Newsletter June 2022
Dear Parents and carers
The weather has been very hot and sunny so please remember to put suncream on your child. If you don’t have any or if you forget, we have some here that you can use.
We also have lots of sunhats but some children do prefer their own.
We will be enjoying playing & learning with water, please try to repack your child’s bag with a full set of clothes & some spare shoes.
We have now used all of our spare clothes. Please return anything that your child has been sent home with and also if you have any spare t shirts, joggers, leggings or socks (aged 3-4) that you no longer need then we would appreciate them here.
Please follow this advice from the Health department regarding how to prepare fruit for young children:
Pips or stones in fruit
Always check beforehand and remove hard pips or stones from fruit
Cut small round fruits like grapes, cherries, berries, strawberries and cherry tomatoes, into small pieces: cut lengthways and then again cut them in halves (quarters)
Exciting summer fun

Please return your forms for this.

Rainbow room children – trip to Foundry Woods, Thursday 14th July.
We are currently talking to schools about your child so that their transition to school will be smooth. It has been so lovely to chat to your new teachers.
The Rainbow room children are enjoying PE sessions which are alternate Wednesdays & Thursdays. The children have been using crash mats, tunnels, balancing & throwing and also learning how to dress & undress themselves.
Staff are busy writing reports & will be booking parent reviews between 20-30th June & sharing this information with schools and new nurseries as required.
We have three work experience children with us this week – Naomi & Kyle (who were Little Stars children a long time ago) and Eve. They are very popular with the children and are lovely to have around
The children are really enjoying our jungle animal topic, learning about initial sounds (L for Lion etc) we are doing lots of crafts, patterns, songs & stories.

Our open day went well with quite a few new families attending but we do still have some spaces, especially for three year olds. Please share with friends, colleagues and anyone you meet who may be interested in a preschool for their child.
