Events this term: 


Sponsored toddle - 29th March:

As pre-school parents will know, Louis comes to pre-school with us two days a week. He is a little boy with a congenital condition which means that at the age of three he cannot walk and talk (yet!). The Love for Louis campaign was set up by his mum to raise money for special therapy for Louis - in the hope that he can learn to walk and talk. In aid of this we have decided to do a sponsored walk around the park and all children and families are invited. Sponsor forms will be out soon and we hope to raise as much as we can to support Louis in his adventure!
