Thank you Tigger’s and Pooh’s Corner families for bringing in the fruit daily. We have a wonderful selection for our fruit and vegetable platters.

We also encourage vegetables to be brought in – cherry tomatoes, carrots, snow peas, cucumbers etc.



As the weather warms up……..Please remember, our sun protection policy states for all children to wear a broad brimmed, legionaries style hat or bucket style hat-  NO BASEBALL HATS ALLOWED!

We have a lot of children not bringing in hats, we don’t have many spare hats so please ensure you pack a hat for your child as we do follow the NO HAT NO PLAY rule.

Also, for children to wear clothing that covers their shoulders – NO SINGLETS, STRAP DRESSES OR MUSCLE TOPS.  NO THONGS ALLOWED.

This is to encourage lifelong sun protection skills for your child.
