Dates for your diary

Our sports day this year is on Wednesday 17th July at 10-30; all families and friends welcome. Our Wednesday children should arrive at usual time of 9am, we are hoping for some special guests! Our Wednesday children have been practising hard and have enjoyed utilising our sports bags. All families will be enjoying the contents of these bags soon. We know the families that have had them already seem to have had lots of fun; we look forward to watching your videos and hearing your feedback.

Our end of term summer picnic is on Friday 19th July. Wednesday children and families should arrive at 10-30 for a short presentation. All other families and friends are welcome from 11 until 1. We will have a bouncy castle, face painting, our summer raffle and a cake sale. Please bring any donations for the cake sale on the morning of the picnic. Please also bring a picnic to enjoy. If anyone has, or knows anyone who has, raffle prizes they wish to donate, please speak to your child’s key person. This is our last day of term.

Social Media

We have just set up a Stepping Stones Twitter account, please follow us at @pre-stones. We also have a Facebook page where you will find information about what we have been up to, look for our page: Stepping Stones Preschool Canterbury.

Food and Allergies

Please do not bring any food into pre-school without checking first; we need to keep all of our children safe. If your child needs a snack on the way home, please wait until you have left the hall to give it to them.

Measles Outbreak

You may be aware that there has been a measles outbreak in Canterbury. Please be aware of the following symptoms: runny or blocked nose, sneezing, watery eyes, swollen eyelids, sore red eyes that may be sensitive to light, a temperature above 40C, small greyish-white spots in mouth, aches and pains, a cough, loss of appetite and tiredness, irritability. The measles rash appears 2 to 4 days after initial symptoms.  Your child is unlikely to catch measles if they have had 2 doses of the MMR vaccine.
