EYFS Wish List

At Waterbeach, we continually strive to improve our provision in the Early Years however, our budget is rather stretched and our outside space is looking particularly tired. Due to this, we have created this wish list which we will keep updated her on our website. 

This list includes items and toys you may find around your home as well as your support, skills and talents. We would really appreciate any donations which you, your family or your friends could make. Please email or any of the EYFS team, if you have something from the list which you would like to donate to school.

Thank you in advance
