Welcome back!

Hello all,

Welcome back to preschool! We hope the children have enjoyed their first few days back, the new children are settling in to their time with us, getting to know their new friends and the routines of preschool. We are enjoying getting to know them too!

We are very excited about the new term, creating new experiences for the children. We are very lucky that Debenham preschool is in such a great location, situated within the primary school. Last term we were joined by some of the year 6 students to come and spend time with the children. The students were their “Buddies” whether it was sitting reading to them or discovering science projects, working together by building boats and learning about buoyancy. It was such a great success that we will continue to do this on a regular basis throughout the coming term.

Also we are lucky to have such a great local community, we will continue to have regular visits to the library and be involved as much as we can as it is of great importance to us to be a part of it. Which brings me to the families – we could not continue without your support! The committee have worked so hard fund raising to provide trips and new resources such as new computers to enable us to use Tapestry. Also giving up their time to tidy up preschool over the summer and making sure it was pristine – ready for the new term – THANK YOU! We have our AGM on Monday 7th October at 7:30pm if you would like to join the committee or find out more please come along! Everyone is welcome!

I hope you have all received your Tapestry log in details via email by now. If you have any issues at all please don’t hesitate to ask! We have a laptop available for parents to view Tapestry at drop off/pick up if you need. I have added a login button on the Debenham Preschool web page to give easier login access. It is very easy to use and add comments/photos yourselves. We will not be adding vast amounts of observations/photos of children all the time as we want to spend as much quality time with the children, rather than making lots of notes!

Kindest regards,

Rachel, Kath, Beccy, Jane, Simone, Anna & Carmen   🙂
