๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒDear parents and carers, this year, our Christmas card fundraising will be coming home to you! We will be sending home some Christmas card templates (all the instructions are on the reverse of the card). We would really appreciate it if you would like to make a design with your child. This is a great fundraiser for preschool. The lovely folks at MyArtProject will print your design onto high quality items of your choice should you wish to purchase. These include cards/ mugs/ labels. calendars and wrapping paper. Not only do they raise money for preschool but they make lovely gifts! You can pay preschool directly (remember to reference your child's name and 'Christmas' when paying please and Christmas e.g. OliverXmas so we can keep track) if cards can be returned to preschool by 5th November at the latest, we can send orders off to be printed. Many thanks, Cottontails Committee. See photos for some ideas!

[10/07/20]   We hope to see some of you tonight at our AGM. Some committee members will be leaving as they no longer have children at preschool or have been on committee for several years. A committee is essential for a charity preschool to run. If you aren't able to attend tonight but you CAN join committee, please do let us know ASAP.

[10/06/20]   Committee needs YOU. Our AGM is tomorrow at 7.45pm on Zoom. Please message us or comment below if you need the zoom meeting details. Everyone welcome, we hope to see you there!

[10/06/20]   We are so pleased that Deena (Deena's images) will be joining us next Thursday 15th October to take photos of the children. All necessary Risk assessments will be in place including distancing and thorough cleaning of equipment. Weather permitting, Deena may be able to take some outside shots too! We will let you know what you can do if your child does not usually attend on a Thursday.

Our Story

We provide care for 2-5 year olds in a happy, secure and educational environment - we are graded โ€˜Goodโ€™ by Ofsted, with qualified teaching staff following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS)

Alpington is easily accessible from the A146 and our Cottontails come from many surrounding villages, as do our fully qualified teachers.

The venue is clean and spacious inside and children have constant access to the enclosed outside space - a garden and playfort, slide and equipment. There is ample parking space for drop off/pick up times.

Each child has their own qualified keyperson who will take them through the Early Years Foundation curriculum and ensure that they have fun in a safe and secure environment. A Learning Journey is formed, using photos and anecdotes, which is a lovely way of keeping in touch with your little oneโ€™s time and progress at preschool.

We are open from 9.15am-12.15pm Monday-Thursday (Wednesdays 9.00am-12pm) and we offer sessions on Wednesday (12-3pm) and Thursday afternoons (12.15-2.45) for 3 + year olds & funded 2 year olds. Children usually do the morning session and bring a packed lunch and stay for the afternoon session.

Our session price is ยฃ14.00 per 3 hour session, with 15 hours universal government funding for 3 & 4 year olds. We are also an approved funded 2 year old provider.(see our admissions page for details).

You'll find us only 4.5 miles/10mins outside Norwich.

Indoor activities at Cottontails include cooking, messy play, role play, singing, construction, creative arts and crafts.

In our spacious outdoor areas we enjoy activities such as gardening, water play, ball and racquet games protected under our awning for plenty of fresh air, whatever the weather!

If you are interested in joining our lovely village preschool, you are welcome to visit with your little ones for a session.
