Parental contributions

Parental contributions are gratefully received as these donations along with our other fundraising are vital in enabling us to employ an extra staff member per session.

We ask for donations from all the parents of a one off payment of £50 per year. This is issued around October.
Term dates

Little Fishes term dates are set in line with Furze Platt Infant School, our most local Infant School.

Preschool Clothes/ Starter pack

At Little Fishes we encourage our children to get messy and have fun outside in all weathers therefore we ask that your child is dressed in clothing suitable for the various activities.
Most children choose to wear our Little Fishes T-shirts and Sweatshirts. Children do not have to wear the uniform, but it does save them spoiling their best clothes and having to decide what to wear each day.
T-shirts, sweatshirts and draw string bags for spare clothes and wellies are available to buy from the pre-school by using this form. Uniform Order Form
