Charities

14th February 2022

We will be fully involving our Pre-School Charities Committee to help us to plan our campaigns for the coming year. If you would like to nominate a particular charity for us to focus on, please let us know.


The Scottish Daily Mile

14th February 2022

We will continue to aim for all of our children to walk, jog or run for at least 15 minutes each day. Most children can average around a mile in that time! Keep going gang!


Chinese New Year

14th February 2022

We have been extremely busy celebrating the Year Of The Tiger. We even opened our very own Chinese take away – KINGS-WOK-AWAY. It was a great success. Our chefs cooked up a storm and fed the entire nursery. A lovely tasty afternoon treat!


KingsWellies Parent Council

14th February 2022

Our Parent Council will continue to meet once per term. Due to Covid, this is still being done remotely. PLEASE bring to our attention any issues that you would like us to include on the agenda for this term’s meeting. Many thanks. Marcia will be in touch soon.


Toilet Training

11th November 2021

We strive very hard to meet all of the individual needs of our children. Just a reminder that we will support parents in all aspects of toilet training. The best time to do this is when the child is ready, which is usually round about the toddler stage. We would like to aim that all children are toilet trained by the time they reach our Wellie Beans and Jellies rooms. This is good for their own self-esteem and in preparing them for their transition to school. We are more than happy to support parents with this crucial stage in development, whilst recognising that all children are different.


Children’s Uniform

11th November 2021

Just a reminder that we have a variety of very durable uniform for sale. Our uniform is very good value for money and provides the children with a sense of identity and belonging. Please email Kerryn in the office for an order form.
