What we've been doing

The last term has flown by! We have been busy welcoming a few new children to Catsfield Pre-school it's wonderful to see us busy and thriving after a period of transition. Parent and child feedback questionnaires have been of great value to help build on our parent partnership and the return of our open door policy in the mornings has been a breath of fresh air.

We welcome Rachel to join our staff team part time from April. She offers 17 years experience in early years and a Cache level 2 qualification in childhood studies. She has built strong connections with our quieter children who are drawn to her kind calm nature.


After a period of consideration Jess has handed in her resignation, but agreed to join our bank staff. I'm sure we will see her soon! We wish her well after so many years devoted to nurturing and caring for the children of Catsfield. Thank you Jess!
