Alderley Edge Pre-school


Macmillan  Coffee Morning/Stay & Play

We raised an amazing £111.80!!!

Alderley  Edge Pre School held their first Macmillan coffee morning on Friday 29th September, we combined this with our very first stay & play session! Both were a huge success! 

First of all we would like to thank those of you who were able to join us this morning and for your kind donations for such a worthy cause!
We hope you all enjoyed the activities we provided for the stay and play session! We would love for you to share any pictures of you doing some of our activity ideas for home on tapestry!

Some of the comments and feedback from our parents....

"I love the relaxed side of it, rather than a formal parents evening"
"What a great morning and all for a good cause"
"Love the activity ideas for at home we get really stuck on new things to do!"
"Great to find out how the different activities support their learning"
"Nice opportunity to meet other mums/dads"
"Lovely to be able to stay and play and see how happy my children are and get the chance to play with them in pre school!"

We are hoping to offer stay and play sessions similar to this every half term, we will alternate the days so hopefully everyone will be able to attend at least one over the year! (Unfortunately there won't always be cake!)
