Christmas 2018

Christmas 2018

We encourage parents / carers to make every effort to attend our Christmas celebrations.  The children love to show you what they do at pre-school, and it is always a fun-filled, quality time for everyone! In order to keep within our permitted number of people in the room for insurance purposes, each child may have no more than two people visiting them for each of these celebrations.
