Tempest Photographer

I can’t believe that it is that time of year again! We have booked a photographer from Tempest to come to nursery on 29th and 30th March 2018. This will be an opportunity for your children to have their photographs professionally taken. You will be able to purchase these if you wish, through their sale or return policy. Tempest have an excellent reputation and are the main photographer used in most schools. More information will be sent home in due course.


Parental Consultation – Question of the month February 2018

Each month we strive to self-evaluate our practice because we want to be a better nursery. We also need our parents to give us feedback.

Our board will be changing shortly to show our March 2018 question of the month. We very much value your feedback.

French Lessons

We have had a very busy start to 2018

26th February 2018

We have had a very busy start to 2018. Many thanks to Lucas’s mummy for coming in to tell us all about Chinese New Year and how she celebrates it. We loved hearing all about her family traditions. Also to Pyjama Drama for coming in to do some very special sessions with us all about the Year of the Dog! We also loved listening to Scottish poems, dancing to Scottish pipe music, tasting haggis, neeps and tatties and designing our own tartans and coats of arms to celebrate Robbie Burns Day. We made THOUSANDS of pancakes and chose our own favourite toppings. We have also decided to make our own Talking and Thinking and Learning Trees – look out for these outside our rooms and in reception.
