If your child is in the preschool room from September we are starting small group sessions weekly to encourage phonic recognition.

Children will be encouraged to write their name and a letter each week starting with ‘A’. We will also be sending worksheets home so that this can continue in the home environment. If you have any ideas or thoughts on this please speak to management.

Welcome to the 1st Autumn term news letter

Firstly welcome to all the new children who have started over the last few months, there has been quite a few, we hope that you have all settled into Toybox, really well and we are very happy to have you here.

What’s happening this term?

On the 19th Oct we will be celebrating Diwali, the festival of light, extends over five days and celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance.

This term we will be celebrating Halloween throughout the weeks commencing 16th October, until Halloween we will be celebrating all things creepy and scary with activities such as pumpkin carving and creative activities. If you have any suggestions for activities please speak to a staff member, thank you. Our Halloween party will be held on the Thursday 26th October. If your child doesn’t attend this day but you would like them to attend the party please speak to management about availability.

The new Medium term planning has started and the topics we have planned for are People who help us, Space and Our bodies. If you have any suggestions or comments please let staff know we love to have your ideas.


New pound coins- from the 1st of September we will no longer be accepting the old pound coins- thank you.

Over the summer holidays we have been changing the garage into an outdoor/indoor room for the children so that when it is raining the children can still go and play outside but have somewhere to play out of the rain if they wish. Can we ask that if you leave a pram in the garage it is folded and stored in the pram area to the right hand side. Thank you.

We would like to welcome Lola to Toybox, she will be working in the Preschool room and be key person for a group of children. We are sorry to have to say goodbye to Becky Hughes who worked in the Preschool room, she is moving on in her childcare career and we wish her the best of luck.
