DONATING LOOSE PARTS
As part of our pedagogy we like to encourage children to explore and play with real, authentic items and loose parts to encourage the use of creative and critical thinking. We are always on the hunt for unique exciting and open ended resources to add to our environment. If you are getting rid of these items anyways we would love to have them. Recycling such as Bottle tops, yogurt pots, bottle corks, Wooden and natural items like door knobs, baskets, wooden bowls, trays Non rusty metal home ware like pots and pans, cups, trays Authentic items like bangles, bags, hats, suitcases, fans. If you think we can give it a new purpose simply send a message with your unwanted treasures.
As a Charity Preschool we like to hold various fundraising events to fund exciting new equipment, trips, resources and events (Graduation parties) for the children.
During the last year all fundraising has been online due to the restrictions of Covid-19, but this has not stopped our families and practitioners from raising some fantastic funds towards our new touchscreen computer table and revamping the setting.
