We would like to give a warm welcome to Polly who has joined our team here at Bluebell Lodge; Polly has lots of experience working with children in their earlier years and is working towards her Foundation Degree in Early Childhood Studies, she will be joining our baby room and will be working alongside Amy and Georgia.
Sadly, it is that time of year again where our preschool children are leaving to begin their new journey to “big school”. Please could parents assist the smooth transition of their children leaving us by informing us of your child’s last day with us. This is to ensure the preschool team can make sure they have everything prepared for you.
Learning Curve Summer Fair & Graduation
This year our Summer Fair will be held on Sunday 21st July. The fair will be held at AKS Lytham, Clifton Drive South, Lytham St Annes, FY8 1DT. We do hope you can join us for this fantastically, fun filled day. We will be holding various stalls such as Raffle, Tombola’s, Hook-a-duck, Face painting, Yard games plus so much more! Over the coming weeks we will be holding some dress up days for donations for our Prize tombola and bottle tombola stalls.
During our Summer Fair we will be holding our Preschool Graduation, to ensure the day runs effectively each setting will be allocated a time which their graduation will take place. Bluebell Lodge’s graduation time is 11.15am, if we could kindly ask, please can all preschool children graduating be at the Pavilion for 11.00am, this will give staff time to get children ready in their graduation hats and gowns. There will be a grass area for parent/carers and family members to sit and enjoy the graduation.
Dress Up Days For The Summer
Over the coming month will be holding several dress ups days to collect donations for our Summer Fair which are listed below:
- Friday 5th July – Children are invited to nursery wearing their football shirts/sportswear. Donations greatly appreciated for our tombola.
- Wednesday 10th July – Children are invited to nursery wearing crazy hair. Donations greatly appreciated for our bottle tombola.

All donations are very much appreciated, and we would like to thank parent/carers for your continuing support.
