Mini Olympics Success

Our first community event of the new academic year got off to a wonderful start on Saturday 26th September as families, past and present, joined us on King George’s field. The obstacle course proved a real hit with the children, trying out new experiences and old favourites like the space hoppers. Preschool staff helped everyone make the way around the course and win their medal. The rugby taster session saw boys and girls charging around the field, learning new skills and having such fun. With face-painting, refreshments, tombola and superb raffle there was something for everyone. We are so thankful to the fabulous local businesses who helped provide many of the prizes and everyone who contributed to the day. Here’s to the next one….....

Walk of Art Success

We had a fabulous turn out for our Horsforth Walk of Art event on Sunday 5th July. Fortunately the sun was shining which meant our outdoor activities could go ahead as we planned with hook a duck, celery painting and our growing station where children had the chance to plant seeds to take home. Inside we had craft tables, cake decorating and face painting which all proved a great success. It was lovely to see so many children who used to attend preschool as well as meet many new faces. Our thanks goes to all the children, parents and staff who helped to make the day a success – including home-made bunting and planted shoes – as well as everyone who came to support...
