Cottontails Olympics, Saturday 25th June

We invite all Cottontails children to join a sponsored ”Cottontails Olympics” on Saturday 25th June. This is a fun morning of wearing out our children by watching them do laps of the Cotton Hall. The children can run, scoot, bike, walk backwards or use any form of transport they prefer (space hoppers?!), and are sponsored for the laps they complete, or the whole event. The money you raise goes directly back into the pre-school, providing much needed items that help make Cottontails a great environment for all.
