We have a busy week ahead, looking at different types of books and making up stories. We are particularly celebrating British children’s writers including Julia Donaldson, Roald Dahl, Sue Hendra, Judith Kerr, Jill Murphy, AA Milne, Lauren Child, Rev.W.Awdry – to name but a few. Do you have any of their books at home? On Thursday it’s National Book day – have you decided which character to dress up as? The ladies are busy thinking of what they will wear.

What a lovely week we’ve had – did you manage to get away? Don’t forget if you have taken your child somewhere special they have the opportunity at news time to tell us all about it. Just bring in a photograph or something they collected, and we will have a chat with them.
At the sharp end
Greenacre Pre-School is managed by Julie Thornton and staffed by a team of seven. The experienced caring staff are dedicated to making children, happy, safe and ready for school.
Staff are fully qualified to level 3 or above in childcare and all have had enhanced DBS checks. Qualified first aiders are available at each session.
We offer a ratio of 1 staff member to 5 children, which far exceeds the Ofsted recommendation of 1 to 8 allowing staff to spend more time with the children.
The Pre-School committee
Greenacre Pre-School is a voluntary committee with a Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary and other committee members recruited from Pre-School parents. This gives them the opportunity to have an input into the further development and progress of the Pre-School. The committee can be contacted by email
Registered Charity: 1075211
