We are delighted to announce that Co-op selected us to be one of the local charities supported by their community fund and raised a staggering
We would like to say a huge Thank You to Millbrook Co-op and the fantastic community we live in!
The money will benefit Kingfishers and all our children in so many ways, we have some very exciting plans!!!
Star of the Day!!!
Star of the day” involves every child at the Pre School, and means that each child can be a “Star” by bringing with them an adult to accompany them for the session at Kingfishers. It is an opportunity for the children to shine and dazzle at Kingfishers accompanied by those adults who are most important in their lives.
The motivation for this policy is to develop learning and experience by boosting confidence, self esteem and encouraging conversation and discussion with their peers as well as with adults. This also develops a sense of security and a sense of pride in their environment.
It is also extremely important for the Pre- School that we give the adults involved in the children’s lives the opportunity to talk to the Pre School staff and the child’s key worker, and learn more about Kingfishers, their child’s learning, their development and their experiences.
We really hope that parents and carers get involved and take advantage of the opportunity.
Date's have been rolled out to the parents, but if the date of your child's 'Star of the Day' is not convenient for you, and another adult who is an important part of the child’s life is unable to stand in, the best way to resolve this would be to swap your day with another parent!
If you are unaware of when your child's special day is this term, speak to Claire Davey or your childs key worker.
