This week we are talking about autumn. We are looking at the environment and talking about how it changes each season. You can help your child by talking about what you can see when you are out and about. We already have a fantastic collection of leaves and conkers! We will be singing the autumn song – perhaps you would like to learn it too, here are the words it is sung to the tune of ‘London Bridge is falling down’
Autumn leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down
Autumn leaves are falling down, red, yellow, orange and brown

The summer is definitely over, and Autumn is on the way. Don’t forget to put your child’s name in their wellies – we have some identical pairs – so it’s a bit tricky matching feet to the correct boots!
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
In March 2018 Ofsted judged Greenacre Pre-school as a Good provison. We are extremely proud of this achievement. If you would like to read the report download here EY306365 Ofsted report March 2018.pdf
