St Johns Pre-School


Dear parent/carers,

We have received notification this morning that the weather warning for storm Eunice is now red, we will be following the Local Authority's advice and closing the pre-school today.

Thank you and stay safe.

There is a message waiting for our families on their Tapestry page regarding Pre-School.

Thank you
Notice for PreSchool Families.

St John’s Preschool is closed until further notice.

Please see your tapestry accounts for further information.

Thank you
There is no toddler group today.

⭐️Friday the 19th of November ⭐️
We hope all our leavers have a lovely first day in reception 😊
Good morning ☀️

If we haven’t set you up on tapestry yet please see Natalie who will happily do this for you. Once you are set up you will be able to view your children’s observations, photos and videos.
Can the unfriendly woman in front of me in the queue this morning either keep her mouth shut or wear a mask next time. I don't appriciate your comments about social distancing to my 3 year old son or waving your arms around at him. He's not a fly nor a disease. I've worked through this pandemic so don't appriciated it. If your that concerned then stay at home and let everyone else get on with their lives.
- Firefighters want you to be careful when turning on your garden hose this summer, since the water inside can reach 140 degrees when left sitting out in the sun. This little boy suffered serious burns as a result.

Daisy and Harry are joining in this morning! 💪🏻

Contact information, map and directions, contact form, opening hours, services, ratings, photos, videos and announcements from St Johns Pre-School, Nursery, Sandown.

You will need to drop your child off at the green gates at the Bay Primary at 11.30 and then collect them at 12.30. Staff from preschool will be there to greet them, staff will not be able to walk them to big school or back.

Thank you

Thank you so much for all the donations we have had so far. We are still collecting up until half term. The children also all made some autumnal crafts to decorate our display board 🤩

So we hope they did have a fab first day! They are all little stars 🌟 who we just know will shine!

We would just like to say a big thank you for all the lovely kind gifts and cards we received.

We hope all our big children have a wonderful time starting big school and make lots of new and exciting memories. We know you’ll all be great ⭐️

And we look forward to seeing everyone returning to Pre-School on the 5th of September. We can’t wait 🤗

Have a wonderful summer ☀️ to all our children and their families xx


☀️ Please remember to send children in with plenty to drink today, a sun hat and sun cream.

Thank you ☀️


If anyone is having a clear out we are after pots, pans, wooden or metal utensils, cake tins, trays, tubs/containers etc for our mud kitchens at pre-school please 🙏 you can hand them in at the office for Natalie. Many thanks 😊


We are having an open morning 😃 if you or anyone you know have a child/children from birth to 5 please come along 🌈

Tuesday July 12th @ 9.30 till 11.30


Unfortunately toddler group will be cancelled this week. Apologies.


We would be really grateful to anyone who would like to help us x


Good Morning!

Regarding the Broadway being shut and causing quite a bit of build up of traffic. We would just kindly ask that parents/carers are mindful of collection times and leave plenty of time for collecting as we have staff that must leave Pre-School to collect their own children at 3pm.

Many thanks


What a lovely week we have had for World Book Week! We have had all different kinds of costumes and lots of children bought stories in to share from home. We have even had a couple of puppet shows put on by staff and children!

Don’t forget to check your tapestry accounts for all the lovely photos of what your children have been up to 🤩 I can’t wait to display them in the hall for the children to remember.

Have a wonderful weekend

Tomorrow is the last day of World Book Week 😃 we will enjoy this book a few more times!

Thank you and stay safe.


Due to the predicted high winds tomorrow we are just letting you know that we are currently open but if we are required to make additional changes we will update you in the morning via tapestry and the island echo website.


Don’t forget toddler group is back up and running tomorrow 🙌🏻 9.30am till 11am. £2 per family. Come have some fun 🤩

Happy New Year 🥳

Newsletters have started going out to inform families of some changes we have made in regards to drop off and pick up times.

Please could we ask those who have not received a newsletter yet and remind those who have to wait at the top of Pre-School outside the black gates and a member of staff will open them at 9am to let you in. Please do not enter the gates beforehand.

Newsletters will continue to be handed out this week but you can also log on to your child’s tapestry account where you will also be able to view a copy.

Thank you for your co-operation.


We hope you all had a wonderful christmas 🎄

We have had another positive case of covid-19 within our preschool community.

Any children that have been in close contact families have been contacted.

Thank you


Toddler group will not be running now until the new year. Thank you x


Children in Need this Friday, if your child attends preschool on a Friday they are welcome to come in as fancy dress or yellow and spotty. £1 donations would be appreciated all for children in need. 🐻


We would like to thank Elizabeth for organising our sponsored walk. She collected a grand total of £260 which will be put to good use! We are planning on getting some resources for our front garden for the children to enjoy.

Thank you to anyone who supported this and donated! 😄 ☀️


Good morning,

Following new guidance staggered starts and finishes will no longer need to take place so as of Monday times will be as normal. We would like to thank everyone for being so understanding.

Masks will still be in place for staff as we want to try and keep everyone protected as much as we can. Staff wear masks when greeting at the door and speaking with parents/carers. We don’t wear masks within the classrooms as this was the guidance given to us by WHO throughout the pandemic. Staff also test themselves twice a week.

If you would like to speak to us about anything please come and see us at reception where we will always make time for you.


We have noticed a number of parents/careers dropping off and collecting without wearing a mask. Masks must be worn when entering the black gates at the top.

With the cases so high on the Isle of Wight we are doing our best to ensure we are keeping your children safe as well as staff and are able to remain open.

Thank you.

From the Bay for those who may need it.


We are so excited to welcome everyone back tomorrow! Our social distancing still continues to remains the same, so staggered starts are as follows; (and finishing times for children whose session ends at the end of the day)

Rainbow Room (0-2) 9-3

Caterpillar Side (2s) 9-2.50

Butterfly Side (Big Side) 9.10-2.45

Your children’s teachers will meet them at the door to take them to their classrooms and bring them back to reception at the end of their session.

Please remember face masks must be worn once you enter the black gates at the top.

See you tomorrow ☀️

Polite reminder fees are now overdue.

Please could we ask that they are paid by the end of this week. Thank you.


If you have not completed the school transition sheets that were handed out last week we must have these returned Monday 28th June to be sent on to your child’s school.

If you have lost yours you can log into your tapestry account where a message will be waiting with the documents attached. You can either print, complete and hand in at preschool or complete it on tapestry by leaving a message for us to then transfer to paper. These are really important.
