Wow, what a lovely week we have had with your beautiful children,

They have really impressed us with how happy and confidently they have come into Pre School ( it is credit to you as parents to prepare them so well THANK YOU ๐Ÿ˜Š)

Just a couple of reminders please don’t send cereal bars in which contain nuts ๐Ÿฅœ- as we are a NUT FREE SCHOOL also if you send grapes in PLEASE ensure you have cut them because of CHOKING.

Have a great weekend enjoy time with your family 

See you next week where our focus is still our families- so please remember to bring your photos in for circle time.

This term our topic is “ Who do I belong to?” During this topic we want the children to know……..

*We are different but God loves us all the same.

*How our family looks after us and how we can look after them.

*The different parts of our body.


So with this in mind could you please send in some family photos, in a labelled envelope for us to share and discuss during our circle time. 
Thank You ๐Ÿ˜Š Mrs Ray


Hello to all our new and existing families,

Please note: children attending our Pre- School must be toilet trained before they arrive! 


Sessions can be taken as full days, morning sessions or afternoon sessions. If your child is staying for the full day, there is a small charge for the lunch hour and you will need to provide your child with a lunch box. For more information, please contact the school office and ask for Mrs McNarry. 

Please be punctual at the beginning and end of each session. It is also important that all parents are available during the Pre- school sessions to be contacted if necessary.

Show and Tell

Throughout the year in pre-school, we will be having ‘Show and Tell’ sessions every Tuesday. As part of these sessions, children are invited to bring in an item from home that they would like to show to the rest of the class and tell us about. The rest of the class will have the chance to ask your child questions about their item. This is a great opportunity for the children to practise their speaking and listening skills and also develop their self-confidence when speaking to a group.

We will notify you when it is your child's turn for show and tell. 

Letters from parents May 2021:


"I just wanted to say how lovely yesterday’s pre-school drop-in hour was.

The welcome that myself and my daughter Bridie Hodge received from Mrs Finnegan and Mrs Ray was so lovely and made us feel very relaxed.

Bridie had a lovely time and she is really excited to start her pre-school journey in September." with OLSK.


Kind regards,

Caroline Hodge





"My partner and daughter, Isabella attended Little Kenelm's Open Day this week and I just wanted to thank the staff for making it so special. 

Isabella told me how much fun she had when she got home, in great detail! She cannot wait to come back and we are so happy that she got the opportunity to visit." 


Thank you again,
