Dates for your diary

The next committee meeting will be held on Monday 24th February at 7.45pm in The Old Crown Inn, Uley

 

Every year we ask our parents for feedback on a variety of measures, including communication. In line with our feedback from the last academic year, we're endeavouring to improve the transparency between home and playgroup so that you can keep track of your child's learning and sensory experiences.

Each week we now make our playgroup planning available to parents and carers. As well as receiving an email notification, the information is updated on the website, the FaceBook page, and our secret group for current parents and carers. We hope this will help you to enrich your child's learning at home!
