Fund Raising

There are many ways you, your friends and family can get involved with fundraising for the preschool.

Throughout the year there are various fundraising activities and events held, e.g. raffles, cake sales, concerts and competitions, to raise money for resources and experiences for the children.

There are also ways you can help with the click of a button

Sign up to www.easyfundraising.org.uk. When you access your favourite online shops via this website (Asda, Amazon, John Lewis etc) each retailer donates a percentage of what you spend to your chosen cause – Maiden Erlegh Preschool

Use the website www.easy2name.com to buy name labels for your children’s clothes, shoes and bags – the preschool will receive a 20% commission.

Aldryngton Primary School

The pre-school is uniquely placed within the highly popular Maiden Erlegh School’s grounds and is only two minutes’ walk from Aldryngton Primary School. This offers parents the possibility of dropping their pre-school, primary school and secondary school-aged children off in the morning at the one site. The continuum of education provided on the Maiden Erlegh School site helps to ease the childrens’ transitions from one stage of their education to the next.

Opened in 1964, Aldryngton Primary School is situated in next to the Maiden Erlegh school campus. The single-storey building sits in extensive grounds, and is used for study, sport and play. There is a heated open-air swimming pool that is used throughout the summer months. Aldryngton aims to provide a ‘stimulating environment in which pupils are able to attain high standards’. The school encourages children to develop moral and spiritual values, together with a strong sense of social responsibility.

The pre-school has good links with Aldryngton school. The majority of the children who attend the pre-school go on to attend Aldryngton. The foundation stage teacher visits the pre-school in the period before the children move to the school. Because many children attend the pre-school for more than one academic year, when they go to Aldryngton school they already know many of their classmates and also some of the children in the year above them.
