Chedburgh pre-school fundraising for outdoor learning space




A pre-school which has received an 'Outstanding' Ofsted report four years in a row is fundraising for a new 'outdoor learning hub' after being 'hit hard' by coronavirus.

During the pandemic Little Teapots, in Chedburgh, stayed open for key workers, and recently opened up to 'social bubbles', but they are looking ahead to September to get money together for an 'outdoor learning hub' which will include heaters, a fixed shaded area, and an improved fixed enclosure.

They have already secured a £3,000 grant from Suffolk County Council towards the kitty, but set up a GoFundMe page back in June to fundraise more – they have raised nearly £2,000 out of their £5,000 target.

Linda Wright, deputy practitioner for the pre-school, said: “September is approaching and with the unknown of how many children we can take inside we want to adapt our outdoor learning space. Being a charitable business we don't have the funds to do this.

“To make sure we can take out children we need to adapt our areas both indoors and out to make sure it is safe and still following all the government guidelines.”
