Week: 24th May

The children had a great week learning about tools in a workshop and creating lovely pieces with our recycling box. Some of the children also tried plantain with guacamole, a typical dish from Colombia and they loved it. We will take turns so all children have the opportunity to try new things. As the weather at some point will get better 🤞, please remember to put sun cream on the children before coming to preschool, we are happy to top it up if you send it. We know that you like sending the children with sandals in the Summer but it’s not very safe as they play outside with bikes and scooters, we prefer if they wear safe shoes. Please also remember to send the children with comfortable clothing.
