Priory View Pre-School
We hope you have all had a lovely Summer and have managed to spend time with families and friends. Firstly, we would like to welcome all our new children and families, we hope that your time with us will be one filled with fun and wonderful memories.
We hope that we can begin to return to a normal pre-school environment for the coming term - it would be wonderful to have at least one academic year without a threat of lock down looming! We will of course be adhering to the following Government guidelines:-
We would also just ask that all visitors, parents and carers wear masks during pick up and drop off times and when entering the pre-school.
We are looking forward to a wonderful Autumn Term with you and your children, with lots of lovely things planned to help your children to learn and develop.
There will be a few gradual, exciting changes to the experiences we offer your children this pre-school year at Priory View. This is because our new Owner, Vicky, has entered a competition on behalf of the pre-school and has won an opportunity to embark on a Scandinavian Early Years Accredited Course called ‘Hygge in the Early Years’ (pronounced ‘Hew-guh’ and meaning ‘a feeling of wellbeing, cosiness and contentment’).
Back in 2008, Vicky had the wonderful opportunity to visit Denmark with several Bournemouth colleagues and to explore their ‘forest nursery provision’. Vicky was amazed by the use of natural resources to inspire the children and to make them curious, independent and excited to learn and she now has the opportunity to gradually introduce this special early years environment into our pre-school.

It is very important that you let us know immediately of any change of address, telephone, email address or mobile contact details.
We will be sending out weekly notices and any necessary correspondence to your email address. Please make sure we have your correct email address and that you check your emails regularly to ensure you don’t miss anything!
Could you also please write your child’s name in their coats and shoes, as many children have the same style, size and width-fitting shoes at this age and confusion can easily arise, especially during role-play situations.
For any parents not receiving grant who are paying fees, could you please ensure that any money due is paid on your child’s first session of the week. Fees are payable weekly or monthly in advance if you prefer. Online bank transfers are preferred where possible for payment of fees and contributions, where this is not possible, please speak to Christine.
