Welcome back, everyone! If you’re new, we’d like to give you an extra special hello! Here, at Puddleducks Playgroup, we understand that your first day might seem daunting. But we’re here to make sure you settle in – and that includes nervous parents!
‘We’ve got all kinds of activities to keep you amused and also help you learn! There’s our new Pyjama Drama group and our weekly Wriggle and Giggle Musical Movement group. This term, we’re very fortunate to have Kitty Macdonald (of Britain’s Best Talent fame) who will be running a music workshop morning and helping us with the end of term nativity play!
‘Please also put the following date in your diary: on September 30th, there will be a Parents’ Social in the main hall so book your babysitter now!’
On the next page, you’ll find some advice to make the autumn term go with a swing.
DO make sure every item of clothing is clearly labelled – including underwear!
DO fill in the enclosed medical form, especially the allergy section.
DO fill in the Emergency Contact form together with your doctor’s details.
‘We are the little Puddleducks,
We love to learn through play.
It keeps us bright and busy
All (two beats) through the day!’
‘Mrs Merryfield, Mrs Merryfield. We went to More-ishus. And it rained.’
