What a wonderful build up to Christmas it's been in the village.

We'd like to thank everyone that took part in our Pre-School Christmas Fundraisers around the village - we hope you enjoyed them as much as we did!

In total we raised an impressive £52.55 for our lovely village pre-school! 🎉

The results of the competitions are;

The reindeer in Fellows Bakery found his name finally - Larry is off to his new home with the lucky winner 🦌

Guess how many sweets in the jar had lots of good guesses! There were 374 sweets in total and the closest guess was 365 🍭

And the art competition had a joint winner with their fantastic pictures being too hard to chose between!

Thank you again to everyone that took part and a very big thank you to all the local business in the village that helped with our fundraisers and supported our wonderful pre-school. ♥️

I will be in touch with the winners very soon 😊

We hope you have a lovely, safe Christmas and here is hoping for a happy, healthy new year

Hi everyone, we still have a few of the spring bags left. We have had lots of lovely feedback about them. They have been keeping the kids busy for hours. We’ve had some lovely painting session, hours of play dough fun, made some yummy things to eat and we still have more things to do. £10 a pack don’t miss out!

We had fun making our pancakes today with some healthy and not so healthy toppings. This is what we made with some of ours. Feel free to share your creations or toppings too.

Children @st_peters_preschool_ardingly love to make marks indoors and outdoors using a range of media. Our skilled practitioners know that mark making is crucial for a child’s development such as physical development, creativity, brain and language development. Could your child make marks today? Maybe in the mud with a stick or prodding their finger in some play-doh. #preschoolactivities #preschoolpractitoner #markmaking #chalks #paint #learn #play #engage #childdevelopement #ardingly #midsussextimes #midsussex #westsussex

Our children had a fantastic week @st_peters_preschool_ardingly. They enjoyed our focus on ‘Building and Construction’ and were fully engaged in all the activities we planned. We love how some of the children used a range of materials to create ramps for their diggers. We used numicon to help us with our counting and number recognition. See you all next week for another fun week! #preschoolactivities #preschool #counting #numicon #maths #smallworldplay #naturalmaterials #learn #play #engage #ardingly #midsussex #westsussex
