Pre-School needs help to ex­pand

The Wokingham Paper - - EDUCATION -

WOOD­LEY pre-school said that it is de­lighted to an­nounce that it will be open­ing a new, pur­pose­built, ded­i­cated pre-school in the grounds of Wood­ford Park.

The new school site is due to open in spring next year and will pro­vide par­ents with 30 hours of child­care per week. The school pro­vides ed­u­ca­tion for chil­dren aged two to five, in­clud­ing those with spe­cial needs.

Tif­fany Walling­ton, Pre-School chair, said: “We feel very lucky to have re­ceived fund­ing from the De­part­ment for Ed­u­ca­tion and we are ex­cited that our pop­u­lar lo­cal pre-school can ex­pand into it’s very own premises. The new site will al­low us to in­crease our pro­vi­sion and take on more chil­dren.”

The grant from the DofE cov­ers 75% of the cost of the new school, re­quir­ing the pre-school to raise 25% them­selves.

Miss Walling­ton said “The pre-school has been fundrais­ing for this new project all year, but we still have a way to go. We are there­fore ask­ing if any lo­cal com­pa­nies or fundrais­ing groups could help us. Do­na­tions would be very much ap­pre­ci­ated but we are also look­ing for equip­ment, as­tro turf, fenc­ing etc to help us pro­vide a fan­tas­tic en­vi­ron­ment for the chil­dren.”
