We hope you all enjoyed the trip to the Dinosaur park? The staff team had a great time!

A great day out and lots of fun. So lovely to see so many of you all there.

All made possible by such great fundraising events, raising money so that we can give the children at Puddleducks great experiences, trips and new resources.

You can upload your photos of the day to our private Facebook page. 

Our next event is the Open Morning on 10th June, 10am-midday. We hope to see lots of you there, and don't forget to invite any parents you may know who are interested in joining our waiting list.

Keep an eye and ear out for our next fantastic fundraising event!

This year's summer trip will be to the Dinosaur Park, which is located in Weston Park, Lenwade. It promises to be a fantastic day out for the children to share with their family and friends. Puddleducks will be closed on this day due to the General Election. 

The Dinosaur Park offers a wonderful walk/trail where the children can see and find out about lots of different dinosaurs. They have a Secret Animal Garden, Crazy Golf, adventure play areas and a splash park (swim wear and towels will be needed). In case of rain, it also offers an indoor play area for the children. 

Everyone is welcome to attend (parents/carers/siblings/grandparents etc), but please note that all parents/carers will be solely responsible for their own children at all times. For more information about the park, its location and facilities, please go to www.dinosauradventure.co.uk

We are very pleased to announce that Puddleducks will pay for all the children attending the playgroup this year; under 3s are free. Unfortunately all adults and siblings need to pay for their own entry. Ticket prices are the same for an adult and child at £7.95 each, again under 3s are free. If you happen to have a Dinosaur Park pass, then please do bring it along.

Please can we ask that payment for all adults and any children over the age of 3 that are not on the Puddleducks register is included with the reply slip, unless you have a dinosaur pass and that can be viewed on entry. 

The plan is to meet at 9.45am at the main gate of the Dinosaur Park (as promptly as possible please) with everyone travelling under their own steam. If you will have space in your car, please could you consider offering a lift to anyone who would otherwise have difficulty getting there. If you need a lift yourself, please let Sarah or Janice know directly. 

If you would like to attend, please complete and return the reply slip to group by Friday 26th May

Kind regards,

Dear parents and carers,

After the success of the previous stay and play sessions, we would like to offer you a chance to join us for a Dr Seuss themed Stay and Play session. We will be running two sessions and you can choose which one you would like to attend. The aim of these sessions is to allow you  to come along and give you the opportunity to access activities with your child/children during the morning and maybe get a few ideas for activities at home.

The staff team will be available during these Stay and lay sessions covering bathroom duties, taking photographs and restocking the activities. We will also be available to help children if their parents or carers are unable to attend. If as a parents or carer you are unable to attend then we would welcome grandparents, aunts, uncles or other extended family members. 

The Stay and Play sessions will take place on the mornings of Tuesday 23rd and Thursday 25th Mat between 9.30 and 11.30. 

If your child normally attends Puddleducks on a Tuesday am session or if they attend on a Thursday am session, then please circle the relevant Stay and Play session. 

If your child does not attend Puddleducks for either of the dates for the Stay and Play session, then we would like to invite you and your child/children to choose which session you would like to attend. (A suggested £4 donation is requested to cover cost of activities and resources.) Please indicate on the slip below and attach donation. We would ask that you and your child arrive at 9am (as children will have their register routine and adults will be briefed on activities available) so that we are ready to start on time. 

Due to the high volume of children already on the Puddleducks register, we can only offer these sessions to children that are already attending sessions at Puddleducks. Unfortunately, this means that we accommodate younger siblings. 

We look forward to seeing you at the Dr Seuss Stay and Play session. If you or your child would like to come dressed as a character from a Dr Seuss book then please feel free to do so. 

If you have any questions regarding the sessions, then please speak to Sarah or the staff team. 

Please complete the slip and return it to Puddleducks by 16th May 2017, this will allow us enough time to prepare the activities and get enough resources. 

Kind regards,

Puddleducks staff x
