Constantine Pre School

The Preschool Team are thrilled to be back up and running, welcoming a new member of staff and, amongst other wonderful things, enjoying being able to prepare for a long-awaited beach trip at the end of May!

Weekly stories have continued online to support early reading; instilling the love of reading that all staff share, from an early age is valued highly and at the centre of their inspiring topics. The children have enjoyed submersing themselves in the underwater world of this Term’s theme, and are sharing stories with strong environmental links – raising the next generation of eco-warriors!

Alongside caring for creatures in the ocean, the children have begun an inspiring, sponsored “Readathon” this month. With the support of their wonderful parents and carers at home, sharing books will not only be enjoyable for the children, it will also be raising money for the wonderful charity “Read for Good,” providing books for children in paediatric care.

The wonderful world on our doorstep…
The children and adults at Preschool have thoroughly enjoyed being able to be back in the woods, relishing the (sporadically!) milder weather and grounding themselves in amongst the beautiful surroundings on offer down the road. As always, the team have planned in opportunities for exciting, inspiring and truly memorable experiences. To name but a few, the children have had the chance to create beautiful, floral May Day crowns, celebrating the coming summer solstice in the sunshine and sampling gorse flower porridge.

They have also planned, tested and evaluated their ideas, creating pulley systems across the ambling streams in the woods, helping “Mr.Grinling” get his lunch successfully, avoiding pesky seagulls! How lucky the staff and children alike are, to have such a beautiful resource right on their doorstep; in these strange times, never has a connection with nature been more important or appreciated.

We hugely appreciate all of the donations we have had so far to raise money for our new Forest School gear, however we are still at £390 of our £400 target, we are so very nearly there and would love to make this total!

As a final request, if you are an Amazon customer and use this regularly, you have option to join “Amazon Smile.” With this, you are able to choose a charitable organisation to support; a small but significant percentage of your purchase value will be added to the Preschool pot.

If this is something you feel able to do, we would very much appreciate you choosing to add Constantine Preschool. Every penny counts!
