Easter Egg Decoration

King Street Pre-School is a registered charity and, as such, is assisted by a committee of past and present parents and carers, also known as trustees. We are just like you! As a Committee we like to bring the whole community together with a range of fun events as well as raising money for the Pre-School

This week at the pre-school the children will be enjoying some Easter themed activities!!!!

A popular craft activity the children have taken part in over the years is creating their own Easter decorations. This fun activity has been a great way for families to donate to the pre-school. The children will be creating their own decorative eggs, these make fantastic gifts and look charming around the home during the Easter period. The pre-school committee kindly ask for a suggested voluntary contribution of £1 per child for the handmade Easter decorations.

Donations can be made via the PayPal link below (you do not need to have a PayPal account to donate you can simply donate as a guest without setting up an account). https://paypal.me/pools/c/8xQZKU6mYV

We would like to say a huge thank you from the Pre-School committee for all of your ongoing support and contributions.
