Parental Consultation – Question of the month July 2017

11th July 2017

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 July question of the month comes from How Good Is Our Early Learning and Childcare and focuses on Quality Indicator 3.1. Please give us your comments about how well we ensure wellbeing, equality and inclusion within KingsWellies. Your feedback means a lot to us.

What lucky mutts these two are! Look what they have been up to during the weekends with all of their nursery friends ………. They will also be starting their Therapets visits soon and hope to go to the hospital for fortnightly visits to cheer some of the patients up. Well done boys!


Butterflies, Stick Insects, Frogs – what a menagerie!

11th July 2017

We have really enjoyed learning about the life cycles of stick insects, tadpole to frog and caterpillar to butterfly. Our stick insects continue to grow and we were delighted to release our frogs and butterflies in to the wild recently. Would you like to grow your own stick insects? Eggs and instructions available from Scott!

Ready to Read

11th July 2017

Encouraging children to develop language skills, read and enjoy books at an early age is vital, and the earlier the better. That’s the message from Scotland’s nursery inspectors at the Care Inspectorate as they back a campaign to improve children’s early language skills.

P1 MAGIC Graduation Party – BEST of luck to our boys and girls who will be leaving us to go to

11th July 2017

This year we have 22 very grown up boys and girls who will be leaving us at the end of the Summer (or before) to start the next exciting part of their lives in P1! As a special treat, our “2017 leavers” held a Magic Graduation Party and invited mums and dads along too. The boys and girls LOVED Magician Dreen who had us flabbergasted with all of his AMAZING tricks! They also made us FILL with pride when they walked up the red carpet to receive their graduation certificate and goodie bag! They looked so grown up in their hand-made hats and sashes! They finished off the evening with lots of hilarious photos in our photo booth. A great time was had by all! MANY thanks also to Meina’s grandma for our DELICIOUS graduation cake!


“Daily Mile” challenge

11th July 2017

We are trying to complete our “Daily Mile” challenge by walking LOTS during the day. Rob and Alistair (our Prime Four Ambassadors) have been exploring the new landscaped area with us in the Northern Park. We can’t wait to hunt for mini-beasts, have teddy bear picnics, practice our sports, play team games and investigate the plants and flowers!
