As part of a review of Safeguarding and Health & Safety of the building, it has now been agreed with Somerset County Council that as the Valley Children Centre is de-designated, the main door to the building will be closed during sessions times from after the Easter Holidays and going forward.

The door will be opened at the beginning/end of session times i.e 8.50 am, 11.45 am and 12.45 pm. At the end of the day the door will be opened from 3.15 pm. If you arrive before these times please wait until the door is opened.

If for any reason you need to enter the building outside of these times, please ring the bell.

Raise money when you spend on Amazon, Sainsbury's, Asda, John Lewis, some sections of ebay, loads of clothing stores ... It only costs you a few clicks, but gives a percentage of your shopping worth directly to Earlybirds Preschool. Thank you in advance!

Please bring your child to Earlybirds at 2.15pm along with their bonnets. If your child is already in Earlybirds on this day, please bring their bonnets in with them.

Please then make your way round to the forest school gate (to the left of the main entrance to the building).

After the parade has taken place, staff will take all the children back into Earlybirds and you can collect them as normal.

The Committee will be holding a cake stall and tombola for fundraising at this event so any donations of cakes will be greatly received. Please bring them along in the morning or at the event.
