Christmas! (and last week of term)

Friday Normal session from 9am / End of Year Party from 11am

Children who usually attend on Fridays will be able to choose some of their favourite resources.  All playgroup children are welcome to join us at 11am for traditional party games such as Pass the Parcel and Musical Statues before a festive lunch at 12.00.

Children who are not registered to attend on Fridays must be accompanied by an adult. Younger siblings are welcome to come along, but must be supervised at all times.

PHOTOGRAPHS

Photographs may be taken during the party, but in line with our eSafety policy we request that no photographs or videos taken at the event are posted on any social media site without the explicit consent of all parents/carers of every child visible.

THE STAFF AND COMMITTEE OF ULEY UNDER 5s WOULD LIKE TO WISH ALL PLAYGROUP FAMILIES A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS.  WE WILL RE-OPEN ON WEDNESDAY, 3RD JANUARY 2018.

Every year we ask our parents for feedback on a variety of measures, including communication. In line with our feedback from 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!
