A thank you to Bitton Parish Council

The staff and committee of Oldland Pre-School would like to thank Bitton Parish Council for very kindly awarding us funding for the purpose of making significant alterations to our pre-school.

This funding was used to move the kitchens out of both classrooms; a new kitchen/staff room was created in what is currently the administrator’s office; a new administrator’s office/meeting room was installed in the former kitchen in terrapin 1 and the current managers’ office was improved.

These alterations have provided us with a more private area in which we can discuss our children’s needs with parents and/or professionals; it increased the floor space in terrapin two and provides our staff with a more suitable area where they can take their lunch breaks and/or do their paperwork

Our special thanks must also go to the staff/committee members who assisted in the preparation and putting forward of our case to Bitton Parish Council – your efforts are much appreciated!
