Whats on!

Throughout the year we have a number of events - for both our children (such as World Book day) and the wider public. We exist because of the community that we work in and we want to remain closely linked to those around us, the people that live in the surrounding streets, the parents and children at the local schools and the various number of businesses and ventures that are on our door step.

​As such, we not only run our own events but also help support others. Here you can find a list of things that are happening at the pre-school. Please get in touch if you would like more information!

Outside cinema night! Saturday 3rd September

Get out your picnic rug and your singing voices; come along and enjoy the romance of watching a cinematic classic under the stars! SOLD OUT.

Roald Dahl Day13th September. Roald Dahl (1916–1990) was one of the world’s most imaginative, successful and loved storytellers. Since his death, his work has not only endured but is still increasing in popularity. His stories are currently available in 59 languages and we're going to celebrate some of his literacy genius! Please note, this is just for information. Nothing extra is required for your child to partake in this.


​Rosh Hashanah 25th September. Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year. It lasts two days and celebrates the creation of the world. People think about their priorities in life, reflect on what has been achieved in the year and ask for forgiveness for wrongdoings. After a service at the synagog, a special meal is eaten at home, including apples dipped in honey (a symbol of the sweet New Year that each Jew hopes lies ahead), Hallah (or Challah) bread (round to symbolise a circle of life/the year) and there is often a pomegranate on the table (a tradition that pomegranates have 613 seeds, one for each of the commandments that a Jew is obliged to keep). Please note, this is just for information. Nothing extra is required for your child to partake in this.

​Diwali 23rd October. A Hindu festival, Diwali means 'rows of lighted lamps' and is known as the 'festival of lights' because houses, shops and public places are decorated with small lamps called diyas. The festival celebrates the victory of light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance, although the actual legends that go with the festival are different in different parts of India. Please note, this is just for information. Nothing extra is required for your child to partake in this.
