Starting at Broadhill Preschool

Each child will be given a peg to hang up their belongings along with a shelf underneath to place their own wellies. This will have their name along with a picture of an animal/insect.

They also have their own drawer clearly labelled again, this is to store any work to take home and any letters/correspondence for parents/guardians.

Can you please send your child, with spare sets of clothes, underwear/nappies and appropriate outdoor clothing.

Please ensure all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child’s name.

School sweatshirts and T-Shirts are available to purchase at £9.00 & £4.50  – These are available to purchase direct with us.
