Pre-School Newsletter

Well it’s that time of year again when we all start to relax and enjoy our summer holidays, so Milwich Pre-School and Lollipops Wraparound Care would just like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the hard work and dedication from parents to grandparents, auntie and uncles, friends and the local community. Without your support we couldn’t run our small rural pre-school. A big thank you must also go to all the teachers at Green Lea School, who support and help us every day.

I think everybody involved in Pre-School and Lollipops Wraparound Care would like to extend their thanks to all the amazing staff, who always go above and beyond. And finally the biggest thank you must go to the children, who make Milwich Pre-School and Lollipops Wraparound Care the vibrant, fun and exciting place to be and work at.

We hope everybody has a wonderful summer, and we are already planning lots of great things for the new school year, which will hopefully include a forest school session. So stay safe and we will see you in September.
