Pennywell Christmas Trip 2018

Pre-School Christmas Trip 2018

Dear Parents/Carers,

We have arranged a trip to Pennywell Farm on Monday 3rd December. All adults and children are invited to attend even if it isn’t your child’s regular session.

The Pre-School will be closed on this date.


The coach will be leaving Pre-School around 9.15am but staff will be in the setting from 9.00am as normal for anyone to use the facilities before we depart. We will be spending the day at Pennywell Farm, having lunch there and departing at around 2pm. Please bring lunch for you and your child.

The day will be open to all children, younger siblings, parents and other carers.

           Adults and children - £10.00 per person, big or small!!


This cost includes a seat on the coach and entrance to Pennywell Farm where your child will be involved in a nativity followed by a visit to Father Christmas who will present them with a gift, followed by refreshments (mince pies, teas and coffee or mulled wine etc).

If it is your child’s funded session and you have commitments which prevent you from attending this trip with your child, please speak to your child’s key person, children may be accompanied by a member of staff but spaces for this are limited, we encourage you to join our fun day out!!

Please complete the tear off slip and return asap. I require numbers of adults and children attending to enable us to confirm the booking. We need to confirm the booking as soon as possible so replies need to be returned urgently, even if you are NOT attending.

The trip money can be paid in instalments, but all money will need to be paid in advance.

Thank You!



Flexible 9am starts

We are now offering 9am starts, so if you are interested in booking your child in for an earlier start of 9am, then please speak to your keyworker or Karen for further information.
