Dear parents/carers,

PRE-SCHOOL PHOTO Thursday 27th April 2017

In previous years, we have had a pre-school group photo taken by Tempest Photography. We will be doing the same again this year for your pre-school child. 

If your child is not normally in on a Thursday afternoon we would like to ask that they join us for the photo. Please could they join us at 1.30pm on 27th April. We would ask that parents/carers leave them and they will be ready to be collected at 2.30pm. 

The photo makes a lovely lasting memory of your child's time at Puddleducks. The photographs that have been taken over the past six years can be seen on display in group. The photograph will be available from Tempest for you to purchase in various forms.

If your child is in session for a full day, you may wish to send them with a change of clothes and a hair brush in a named bag.

Please could you return the slip given to you by Thursday 20th April, so that we know if your child will be joining us.

Kind regards,

Puddleducks staff

Puddleducks is planning a trip to Norwich Playhouse for all pre-school children. We have booked tickets to see the production of The First Hippo On the Moon by David Walliams.

The trip will take place on the afternoon on Monday 20th March 2017. We will travel to the Playhouse by coach, leaving Puddleducks at approximately midday. The cost of the trip is being heavily subsidised by Puddleducks and we would therefore ask for a small contribution towards the cost of the coach of £4 per child.

Due to the coach size and the number of pre-school children, we will not be able to take all parents/carers; we will however have a few spaces for volunteers to accompany us. If you are able to offer to accompany us on this trip, please indicate on the permission slip. If you offer to volunteer and it is confirmed that you are joining us, then we would ask for a small voluntary contribution towards your ticket and coach travel of £4.

A full risk assessment will be carried out prior to us going on the trip and we will maintain a ratio of one adult to two children at all times. 

For the trip, there are a number of options. Please read carefully!

1) Children already attending a full day session will need to bring their lunch as normal. 

2) Children attending a morning-only session can bring their lunch and stay for the trip.

3) Children that attend the afternoon-only session will need to arrive by 11.50am having had their lunch.

4) Children that do not normally attend on a Monday will need to arrive at 11.50am having had their lunch.

 

The performance will last 60 minutes. We will then travel back to Puddleducks, arriving at approximately 2.30pm, reading for you to collect your child/children.

Please return the attached slip by Friday 24th February, so that we can confirm numbers with the Playhouse. Please note there will not be an afternoon session running due to all staff being in ratio for the trip.

Kind regards,

Sarah and Puddleducks staff
