A big thank you to parents for your kind gifts at the end of last term. They are always appreciated.

Term Dates:

Autumn  half term 1 week 28th October.

This term is a busy one where we welcome new children. Our aim to get them settled in as soon as possible to ensure that they feel secure and happy at Sticky Fingers, and we will work along with new parents to ensure that this happens.

Planned Activities

Our activities will include Rosh Hashannah, Diwali, growing and planting and, of course, Christmas. These topics will be linked to the EYFS but please come and see a member of staff if you would like further information on our learning opportunities for your child.

Some of our recent purchases include a dressing up box and mirror, a laptop and some new play mats.

Staff News

We are pleased that Sue and Maggie completed their child care training in July and are now fully qualified so our congratulations go to them.

T Shirts

Our Sticky Fingers T Shirts are proving very popular. We now have sweat shirts available for the colder months ahead. We ask that your child wears them to pre school We think that they look good and it takes the stress away from parents having to face a “fashion” war each day. The T Shirts are £5.50 or £10.00 for two. The Sweat Shirts are £12.00 each or £22.00 for two.


Can you please ensure that all fees are paid within the first 2 weeks of each half-term. We do make a charge for late payment of £5 per week. Could you also make sure that your child’s name is on any BACS payment. We also accept child care vouchers. Should you wish to pay in this way please contact your employer to enquire whether they are set up for it. Please note that we require 6 weeks notice of your child leaving Sticky Fingers. This does not include the school holidays. Should you fail to do this you will be charged accordingly at our discretion.

Collecting your Child

We understand that there may be times when you will be late collecting your child. In this instance please contact us as soon as possible. Persistent lateness will result in a late fee of £10.


Please look on the main door for any messages or updates, but as always please come and see us if you have any queries or suggestions. There is a suggestion book on the table when you collect your child and you are welcome to use it for any comments etc.

Thank you.
