Stockland & Yarcombe pre-school enjoys some fun on the farm.

The children of Stockland and Yarcombe pre-school have had a busy few months enjoying a whole host of fun activities.  They had a wonderful time visiting some new lambs on a nearby farm last term and also completed a sponsored beach walk for Sport Relief at Seaton beach which raised an impressive £124.50.

The pre-school has recently enlisted the help of professional sports coach Dan Murnane to implement the Leap Ahead scheme every Wednesday morning.  The programme develops eye-hand co-ordination, large muscle movement, balance and rhythm.  It is hoped that the scheme will have huge benefits for the children’s development and it also aims to encourage future participation in sport from a young age.

The children will be focussing on the theme of different occupations this term and will be enjoying a visit from some local police officers and a nurse as well as another trip out to a farm.

As a registered charity the dedicated volunteers who form our Committee are always looking for ways to raise money and we would like to appeal to anyone who has any unwanted clothes, shoes or handbags to donate these to pre-school for a Bags 2 School fundraising event which will be held in July.  Special bags can be collected from the pre-school at Stockland Victory hall from the 6th June (or alternatively you can fill a bin bag!) and the bags will need to be brought back to pre-school on or before Friday 1st July when they will be collected.  The pre-school will be given money based on the weight of the bags collected so please have a look in your wardrobes and drawers and see if you can help us out.

We will also have a stall at the upcoming Stockland Fair on bank holiday Monday, 30th May at 1.30pm in the grounds of Stockland Victory Hall.  This is an amazing event with wonderful stalls and masses of fun events for children and adults alike so please do pop along and say hello.
