From September 2021, the Pre-School will be re-locating to a new permanent home at the KS1 site of The New Forest School in Landford. We will be based in our own "Acorns" Classroom with use of the school grounds and facilities. We are looking forward to this exciting opportunity! We will continue to work with all local primary schools, supporting all children in their transition. Further information can be found in the attached letter:

Fundraising Events - update
2019 was a very busy year for fundraising - we enjoyed a Comedy Night, an evening with Dan Clarke - Spiritual Medium, a Glow Zumba session and the fantastic Happy's Circus held in June. Our Indoor Bonfire Party and the joint Christmas Fayre with the New Forest Primary School were also a big success!
Sadly fundraising has had to be reduced during the pandemic but we still managed to raise some vital funds with a Spring Trail, the Santa Roadshow, a Christmas raffles and sales of our 2021 calendar.
In addition, our Bag2School Clothing and Textile Collections - these have been a huge success, raising hundreds of pounds for the Pre-School and our next one is planned for 25th March 2021. Other plans for the future include:
Vintage Afternoon Tea
Gin Tasting Evening
Fundraising is so important to our Pre-School to enable us to send our staff on valuable training courses and to continually update and afford new resources for the children.
Thank you to everyone who joined our AGM via Zoom on Friday 25th September. A huge welcome to our committee!
