What a fantastic pre-school sports day and leavers picnic!

Thank you to everyone who came along, took part and worked hard behind the scenes to make today such a great success.

Padbury Pre-school has been short-listed to receive a grant from Tesco to redesign our garden! 

 

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative in hundreds of regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.

 

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 416 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public will now vote in store from 26 September to 9 October on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards. In total, there is over £12.5 million up for grabs.

Bucks County Council Early Years recommend the flu vaccine  for all 2 and 3 year olds

 

Flu can be an unpleasant illness and in some cases leads to hospital admissions and some deaths each year. Protecting children from flu will not only protect themselves, but also those around them, who may be particularly vulnerable to the flu.

 

This year, all children aged 2 and 3 years can have the flu vaccine free of charge from their GP, and it will be given by a painless nasal spray, rather than an injection. All GP surgeries in Buckinghamshire are offering this vaccine, but if you have not yet been contacted about this, then please phone them and make an appointment for your child to receive the vaccine.

 

All children who have medical conditions like asthma, chronic heart, lung and neurological conditions, diabetes or weakened immune systems, should also have the flu vaccine every year, as they are more likely to be severely affected if they catch flu.

 

The flu vaccine is offered to all pregnant women, in any stage of pregnancy, to not only protect the woman, but also pass protection to the baby in the first few months of life.

 

More information can be found at: http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/[removed]vaccinations/pages/child-flu-[removed]vaccine.aspx

Christmas Parade

 

We are hoping to take part in this years Christmas Parade in Buckingham. The theme this year is a "Children's Christmas" so we thought about  the "Nutcracker" as our theme. Thoughts are that all the boys are soldiers and girls are ballerinas to keep it simple. Rachel (Theo's mummy) has kindly offered to co-ordinate this event with the assistance of the staff team and parents. The parade is on Saturday 14th December and we are expecting that we will need to be there from approx 9:30 to 12:00. If you would like your child to take part would you please let Rachel know by Monday 18th November.

 

Please email Rachel at rtrosiebubbles@gmail.com or call  01296 738664

MP Visits Padbury Preschool

 

MP for Buckingham John Bercow unveiled a specially commissioned watercolour at Padbury Pre-school on Tuesday 24 September.

 

The painting, by local artist Lisa Wright, the former owner of Polkadot in Winslow, is entitled The Ark, the name given to the pre-school’s new purpose-built building by competition winner Dr Nina Bursell in April.

 

The staff and children are delighted with the picture, which will hang on the classroom wall.

It was Mr Bercow’s first visit to the pre-school in its new building in the grounds of Padbury CE School.
