High Legh Pre-school is currently operating from High Legh Village hall, this is proving to be a successful interim home for us while we continue to pursue our permanent premises. We currently open Monday to Thursday from 9.10am - 3.10pm. Funded sessions are available and we accept children from 2 years old. On Fridays we hold a Stay and Play session at the hall from 10.30am - 12noon. Cost is £3.00 and refreshments for adults and children are provided. This offers an excellent opportunity for younger children to experience preschool and children needn’t attend preschool to come and join us.
We have had a lovely time back at the hall. It is a lively place since we left over 10 years ago. So far we have joined in with Tuesday’s line dancing class, enjoyed a coffee and friendship morning, had a visit from the local police officers and after a few weeks of finding our feet, we held the last Sunday teas of the season. The sun shone and despite having only a few families attending preschool, lots of our old friends and supporters helped out and we managed to raise a fantastic amount of money for the pre-school.
We were delighted to be invited to High Legh school to watch the Nativity rehearsal performance. Jeff kindly took us on an exciting bus ride on High Legh community transport and we spent the afternoon at school. The performance was fantastic and for the staff it was so lovely to see all of the children who have attended preschool in the past perform with such confidence.
We had our own little performance before Christmas. The parents were treated to a little breakfast before the performance by the children. Each week the children have dance lessons with Joanne and they showed their parents some of the things they do during the lessons. The children didn’t disappoint us and after the performance they were surprised by a visit from Father Christmas. To finish the day Mrs Topping prepared a Christmas dinner for us all followed by chocolate pudding with chocolate sauce! Yum.
High Legh preschool is a registered charity and we fundraise to ensure we meet our running costs, we have several people already signed up to run High Legh 10k on our behalf. If you would like to support us in this way then please do get in touch. If running isn’t your idea of fun then we have our annual fundraising ball booked for the 24th March at Heyrose golf club, we are looking for anyone who would like to sponsor this event. It promises to be a fantastic evening so if you would like to attend then please get in touch.
