Is Your Child Ready For School?

Uniform at Chewton Common Playgroup is optional, however children do get very mucky and when we go out a uniform is a great way of being recognised!

Rights Respecting

As part of our award and as an example of good practice it is suggested that with the help of children and staff we draw up a charter consisting of rights and responsibilities that we can use within our setting and that carry through into everyday life.

We decided that it was important that it was child friendly and in a language that the children could understand and share with others.

This week we have been working towards our charter and we feel it important to share with you as parents.

Please read it to your children and encourage them to colour it in and sign it. When you return it we will make a book of our


and have it as part of our wall display.

Click the image shown to download the Playgroup Promise to colour in. More details of the charter can be downloaded by clicking the image.
