Welcome back!

It was wonderful to welcome back some of the children in June. We can’t wait to see the rest of you and some new friends in September. Please have a look at some of the changes we’ve introduced to help keep everyone safe. Enormous thanks to everyone at Eastwick Road Church for allowing us to continue to use the hall and for their ongoing support.

End of Term

We had a fun end of term party and picnic, followed by our leavers ceremony to say farewell to the older children who are moving on to school. It has been such a privilege to see the children develop and grow, especially during the last half term, when those who returned showed true resilience in how they adapted to our new normal at playschool.

Impromptu music and movement session!

Some of the children self selected the musical instruments, and some of the children weren’t impressed by the noise, so we moved into the side room and had an impromptu music and movement session! The focus on the children’s faces shows just how much learning was going on, and even better as it was chosen by them, and then extended by the adults.

Easter Bonnet Parade

On the last day of the Spring Term, we took the children to visit the residents at Keswick House for an Easter bonnet parade. As you can see, old and young had a lovely time singing our spring songs.

Peter Pan Playschool Open Day

To celebrate our 25th birthday, we would like to invite all Peter Pan families past, present (and future!) to pop in to a special Saturday playschool session on Saturday 24th March, 1-3pm.

Playschool will be set out with all the favourite activities you remember with a few tweaks and added extras so that children of all ages can have a play – it is the perfect excuse to have a go with the playdoh!

There will be birthday biccies, craft activities, construction challenges, our most popular toys will be out and there will be lots of fun in our gorgeous garden.

It will be a lovely chance to re-live some memories and to catch up with staff and old friends and to see all the fab changes which have taken place at playschool in recent years.

To book a slot to come and join the fun, visit www.volunteersignup.org/L4KBC  – you should be able to see who has signed up for each slot so that you can book for the same time as some of your playschool pals!

Please share with any Peter Pan families you know

If you have any photographs or memories of your child’s time at Peter Pan, please let us know – we’d love to create a ‘Peter Pan through the years’ display for everybody to enjoy.
