Extra-Curricular Activities

28th September 2023

We are also really delighted to have all of our visiting teachers back after the Summer. Moo Music, Kids Rock, French, Yoga tots, Rugby Tots, Chef Lisa and Flash dance have all restarted this term. We have changed the days of most of our classes so that a wider variety of our boys and girls can enjoy these experiences.

Wellies £10 Snack Shopper – Would you like to do our snack shopping for us?

28th September 2023

Number, Money and Measure: “I am developing my awareness of how money is used and can recognise and use a range of coins” MNU 0-079 Our children are learning all of the time. Our main focus for learning is through developing our Literacy, Numeracy and Health and Wellbeing skills. As part of the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence, we also develop skills, knowledge and understanding in: 1. Expressive Arts 2. Social Studies 3. Technologies Sciences 4. Religious and Moral Education We would like our Wellies children to develop a good understanding of money. The best way to do this is through using REAL money. If you would like to be one of our “Snack Shoppers” over the weekend, please email our Admin team. They will then give you our snack “Shopping List” and the £5 budget. It would be a huge help to us if you and your child could buy some of the items for our snack over the weekend. This will also be a hugely beneficial experience for your child. Why not make this their weekend responsibility? This will provide a vast range of learning opportunities right across the curriculum. Please just take back the shopping, change and receipt at the beginning of the week. Please also fill out our Snack Shopper Diary so that we can share your shopping experiences with our other children! Feel free to add any photos and also your feedback. Alternatively, do this at home with own children whereby they buy your own household shopping. This is a great (and easy) way to teach them about money and the concept of budgeting.

Staffing Update

28th September 2023

We always plan to have a number of staff OVER our ratio EVERY day. This is unlike most other nurseries. This ensures that we can accommodate lots of high quality staff training, holidays and staff absences. We would like to say best wishes to Laura Burnett who is leaving us and moving to pastures new. Thank you so very much for ALL of your hard work. We will miss you. Managers and staff will keep you up to date with all of our new staff. You will see our photos up in our receptions and regular updates on Facebook.

Graduation – Class of 2023

28th September 2023

WE really enjoyed our final graduation party. What a ball we had! We asked for a bouncy castle, popcorn machine and ice cream van and that is exactly what we got! Parents and staff gave the boys and girls a very well-deserved standing ovation when they left the nursery for the last time. Congratulations everyone!
