April Newsletter

Welcome back after the Easter Holidays. We hope that you and your families have had a relaxing break. We are looking forward to a busy term at Under Fives, with lots of learning, exploring and discovering! Please come and ask if you have any questions about your child's learning or progress!

Eggcellent News!!

A huge thank you to everyone who helped with the Easter Fair. We raised over £1700 which will be used to help with our running costs. So – for everyone who helped on the day running stalls, setting up and clearing away and all the cake bakers, raffle ticket deliverers and those who attended and supported the event - a massive “THANK YOU!” from the Committee and Staff – we couldn't do it without you!

Healthy Packed Lunches!

Just a reminder that we promote Healthy Eating and children making healthy choices. We really appreciate your support by sending in fruit snacks and packed lunch boxes which include a range of healthy foods.

New Opening Times

Hopefully you have already received an email about our new opening times. We now open everyday from 9am (this includes Tuesday Forest School). Morning sessions now run daily from 9am-12pm (or 1pm if you choose for your child to stay for lunch on Monday and Wednesday) On Monday and Wednesdays we remain open until 3pm for our afternoon sessions.

For the Summer!

As the weather gets warmer and the sun shines, please remember to send your child with sun cream already applied. It is also very useful to send a named bottle of suncream so that we can apply more if needed. Don't forget a hat!
Many thanks, Eckington Under Fives Team!

Welly Hunt... We are in need of spare wellies, SIZE 10 AND ABOVE. If you have any spare, we would be very grateful!!


Our younger children are having their Learning Journeys recorded using Tapestry software. Please remember that you can add your own comments to the observations. If your child has achieved something new at home, or has a WOW! Moment, we would welcome a comment from you on Tapestry. We would like to work in partnership with families to build up each child's Learning Journey.
