The children are really enjoying the Spanish, Cirkids and Jo Jingles classes this half term. Feedback has been extremely positive from parents and the wider community. Unless you notify us otherwise we will assume you wish your child to take part in these activities on an ongoing basis, but please do continue to give us feedback if you feel there is anything which could be improved.

A number of parents whose children attend on a Thursday and Friday felt it was a shame that no activities were available on those days so we have recently arranged taster sessions for gymnastics and dancing. Both were a huge success!

We are keen to introduce these sessions after Easter, but this will only be possible if enough children want to join in. There is, of course, absolutely no obligation for your child to take part, but if you would like them to participate, please could you indicate on the questionnaire sent out and return this to pre-school by Thursday 24th March 2016.

Extracurricular Clubs

We are delighted to announce that from 22 February we shall be introducing some extracurricular clubs at St Mary’s.

For the children who are with us on a Monday they will have the opportunity to join a Spanish Class for Pre-schoolers with Lidia.

On Wednesday we shall be welcoming Jacqui from Jo Jingles.  We are so excited and the children really enjoyed their taster session with Jacqui!

We also have something exciting lined up for a Tuesday…. Watch this space!

All these clubs are charged at the amazing price of £3 per session.  Please contact us if you would like some more information!

Location location location

We think we are incredibly lucky to be located next to Lymm Dam and the open fields next to Lymm Rugby Club. We often enjoy walks round the dam and a lot of our children walk to pre-school every day. We also have a large number of free parking spaces right at the front door. image.jpeg

Welcome back!

Welcome back to all our children and of course to the new children who have started this term!

We hope that you and all your families had a lovely Christmas and wish you well for the New Year.

Merry Christmas

We’d like to wish all our children and their families a very Happy Christmas!

We can’t wait to hear about what you get up to over the holidays. Don’t forget if you are going away on holiday or a even day trip we’d love to receive a postcard from you!

A special thanks to our wonderful staff at St Mary’s who made our winter term and the build up to Christmas so magical for the children. We hope you manage to have a big rest!

Cherry Tree Christmas show

We are going to watch the Cherry Tree Christmas production this morning.

It’s a good opportunity for us to look round the school as lots of us will hopefully go there when we are bigger! More importantly we get to see our friends who started in Class F in September!


Christmas Tree festival

We were delighted to be asked to create a Christmas tree for the Christmas tree festival which starts tomorrow at St Mary’s Church!
Here’s a sneak preview of ours. It will be shown alongside 19 others over the weekend. The children will visit the church tomorrow morning to see their tree.

Our wonderful Christmas tree

Dickensian Day Parade

As you aware Dickensian Day is fast approaching and we are excited to say we will be joining Cherry Tree Primary School in the parade on the day.

The theme for this year is Christmas Gingerbread Men and Houses with children wearing Christmas hats and carrying large candy canes.

We are looking for children from the pre-school to walk in the parade on the day in a suitable costume. Do not let the costume theme put you off, as we have a couple of suggestions to help: for the creative how about a cardboard cut-out decorated by your child or if you are short of time or less creative then fabric costumes can be purchased on-line.

On the day children would need to be at the Lymm Hotel for 1pm with the parade starting at 1.30pm.

This is a fantastic opportunity for promoting St Mary’s Pre-School and we really hope you will come and join us on the day.

If you would like your child to take part please return the reply slip below to pre-school by Tuesday 8th December.


Dickensian Day Saturday 12th Dec

We are fast approaching our first fundraiser of this pre-school year and yes you guessed it, it’s Dickensian Day, which takes place on Saturday 12th December.

Every Year St Mary’s pre-school runs a stall in The Lymm Village Dickensian Day Celebrations and this year is no different. This stall is essential in promoting our pre-school and to raise much needed funds that go directly to benefiting all our children.

This year the stall is in Lymm Village Hall and will have a children’s treasure sticks game and a bottle tombola (both very successful last year).

So, how can you help?

  1. Donate bottles (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) for the tombola
  2. Donate wrapped sweets, books or cuddly toys for our general prizes
  3. Donate special books, cuddly toys or other kids gift for our star prizes (we require 10 star prizes)
  4. Put your name down for an hour slot on our rota for the stall on the day (list will be next to the signing in sheet at pre-school).

Donations can be dropped off at pre-school drop off and pick up times.

We really hope that you can help make the stall as successful as previous years and we thank you in advance for your participation and donations
