Dear Parents/Carers,

Just a reminder that tomorrow (Friday, 16th July) is the last day of term and we are having a party to celebrate. We will be providing the food and the children are welcome to come in fancy dress if they would like to!  There will be no lunch club tomorrow and the session will end at 12noon.  If your child is leaving to go to school they will also be presented with their learning journey so you will be able to share their journey through pre-school with them.

Family hubs across the BCP council area are providing fun play and learn sessions throughout the summer for children aged from birth to 5 years.  These sessions are designed to support your child's interests, creativity and learning.  Please see the attached poster for more details. (please see the link in our ‘helpful information’ section)

Click the link below to find out more about the reusable nappy scheme which BCP council are running with an offer of discount start up kits:-


Get help to buy reusable nappies - Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole

Reusable nappies save you money and they are better for the environment. If you use reusable nappies, you can save an average of £500 per baby.



Finally, can we wish you all a very happy summer break with lots of sunshine!  Good luck to all of our school leavers - we will miss you! To all of our children who are returning - we look forward to seeing you when we return on Tuesday, 31st August.


It gives us great pleasure to introduce our new owner Vicky Peters, who starts as Owner/Manager on Tuesday 31st August 2021 at Priory View.

Vicky has 25 years of experience in the Early Years Sector both as a Pre-School Manager and an Early years reception class teacher within the Bournemouth area and brings a wealth of experience to the team.  She has a wide range of childcare qualifications.  Vicky is looking forward to working with the team and meeting the children and parents, she is eager to be a part of and to continue our commitment to offer the highest level of childcare.

We are delighted to have Vicky on board!  Please find attached a letter of introduction from Vicky.

Kind regards,


Welcome letter from Vicky Peters:

I am delighted to have the opportunity to join the Priory View team as their Pre-School owner/manager. I hold a wide range of relevant childcare qualifications, which all began 25 years ago when I qualified as an Early Years teacher back in 1996. 25 years on and I am still passionate about providing the best experiences, care and education for all young children within my care.

I currently live in Bournemouth with my husband Bill, our two children, Sophie (age 16) and Joshua (age 18) and our dogs Max and Frankie. Both of my children attended Priory View and I am sure that you will agree with me that it is the passion and commitment of the wonderful staff team that make it a true ‘home from home’.

Being a parent myself, I understand how rewarding but also how difficult the role can be, at times. We all want our children to be happy, cared for and provide them with the best learning opportunities. I can assure you that I am committed to improving children’s outcomes and my role, along with the team at Priory View, is to assist your child on their learning journey giving them the freedom to explore and develop in a warm and caring environment.

To reassure you all, the staff team and Pre-School organisation will remain unchanged and I will step in as a part of the team. Any changes will be gradual and will always hold the outcomes of our children at the heart.

I look forward to meeting you all,

Kind regards,

Vicky Peters.

Dear Parents/Carers,

We are just writing to remind you that Frasier Photographers will be in the setting next Wednesday, 7th July, at approximately 11 am to take the leavers' photograph.  If your child is a leaver and does not normally attend on a Wednesday and you would like them to be included in this lovely memento of their time at pre-school, you are welcome to swap a session or pay the extra session fee of £16.50.  Please let us know via email.

We would also like to remind you about our summer party on the last day of term - Friday, 16th July.  All children are invited and again, if your child does not normally attend on a Friday and you would like them to come along to the party, you can either swap a session or pay the additional session fee of £16.50 - please let us know via email.  Please note that there will be no lunch club on this day - the party will be from 9-12 noon.

We also need to let you know that Claire, our lovely team member, is retiring so will not be returning in the Autumn term. Obviously we will miss her greatly but know she will be kept busy with her grandchildren and we know you will join us in wishing her a very happy retirement!!  

Finally, just a reminder that we will be returning to pre-school on Tuesday, 31st August and half term will be from 25-29th October.

Thank you - The Priory View Team!

Dear Parents/Carers,

Following a request from one of our parents, please look out for our new topic board which you will find in the front garden when you drop off/pick up your child.

This will keep you up to date with our topics as we move through the term.

Read the full newsletter here...

Dear Parents/Carers,

We hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas and we are now looking forward to welcoming the children back on Monday, 4th January. 

Obviously we are now in Tier 4 so we would ask you that if your child is poorly or displaying any covid symptoms please stay at home - for further guidance and support visit www.gov.uk/coronavirus.  Please ensure that you report your child's absence to us via phone call or email and let us know why they are not attending.

We would like to ask you to support our efforts in keeping us all safe by wearing a face mask when dropping off/picking up your child, using the one way system (in through the front gate and out through the side gate) and remembering the social distancing rules.

We are continuing to follow Government guidelines by continuous cleaning of the pre-school, regular handwashing of all staff and children and keeping windows open to provide good ventilation in the hall.  With this in view we would remind you to ensure your child is warmly dressed and has a suitable jacket as we will be using the outside areas during the sessions.

If you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.

It just remains for us to wish you all a very happy, healthy and safe new year.

Thank you - the Priory View Team. 

We are busy making plans here at Priory View to ensure that the children have a safe and happy build up to Christmas during this unusual time!

Unfortunately we will not be able to have a Nativity this year but we are learning and singing lots of Christmas songs and we are sure that the children will soon be teaching them to you at home!!

We have lots of Christmas crafts and activities going on and will be putting the Christmas Post Box up next week for your child to post any Christmas cards which they would like to send to their friends.  Could we ask you to ensure your child does not lick the envelopes…..it is actually much easier to have a bowl of water handy to moisten the envelopes and stick them down….. this will reduce the risk of any spread of germs! 

Our Christmas party will be on the last day of term, Friday, 11th December, starting at 9am and all the children are invited!!  If your child does not normally attend on a Friday you are welcome to swap a session or, if you prefer, you can pay the session fee of £16.50 – please speak to a member of staff or email us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  We will supply the party food so please ensure that any allergy or food requirement information for your child is up to date.

Please note that there will be NO LUNCH CLUB on Friday, 11th December – the party will finish at 12 noon.

We all send you our very best wishes for a safe and happy Christmas and look forward to seeing you when we return on Monday, 4th January 2021.  For your information, Spring half term is from 15-19th February and we break up for Easter on Thursday, 1st April, returning on Monday, 19th April 2021.

Kind regards – THE PRIORY VIEW TEAM.
