Staffing Update

Huge congratulations to Paul who has just been accepted to complete his BA degree in childhood development. Paul will complete his degree as a distance learner with Aberdeen University and will continue to work full time with us. Well done Paul. Good luck with your studies! Congratulations also to Ashleigh who has just completed her SVQ qualification and is now a fully qualified nursery practitioner! This was a huge amount of work Ashleigh. Well done! We are proud of you! Many thanks also to everyone who voted for Shona in the Entier Shine Awards. Shona has won a very well-deserved award and a £500 bonus! Well done Shona – you really are one of our shining stars!


Tadpoles, ladybirds, worms, snails and minibeasts galore!

15th May 2018

We are learning all about life cycles and are really enjoying studying the lifecycle of a frog. Our tadpoles are getting very big and will soon become froglets.


Pyjama Drama

15th May 2018

We will ALL get a chance to participate in some extra Pyjama Drama sessions this term. Kristine has planned a Royal Wedding extravaganza which we will all be involved in. I wonder who will play Megan and Harry?


Drive Carefully

Please always drive carefully and reverse park when in our car park. The speed limit is 5 miles per hour at all times. Many thanks.


Parent Training Opportunities

11th April 2018

We have teamed up with Morven Medical Solutions to provide medical training for our staff and parents. We are delighted to be able to offer a half day first aid course for parents/carers. This course will cover Basic Life Support for Adults and Children and will be held on a Saturday or Sunday at KingsWellies Nursery. The date will be confirmed. This course usually costs £45 per person, however Morven Solutions would be happy to charge a discounted rate of £35 per person for the KingsWellies parents. If you are interested in participating in this course, please email Kerryn as soon as possible. Dates and times will then be arranged, depending on the uptake from parents. I am also hoping to book an extremely interesting course on Emotional Literacy for both staff and parents to attend. More information to follow.

Please help us to name the pond. Please hand your ideas in to reception.


Snack and Lunch Consultation

11th April 2018

Many thanks to everyone who responded to this important consultation. Kerry will be meeting with Entier later this month to review our new lunch menus. Marcia is currently reviewing our snack menus. We have taken all of your views in to account and will share both sets of new menus in due course. We would also really like to encourage our children and parents to be our “snack shopper” each weekend. Please see Ruby for a shopping list and £10 budget. This is a GREAT way to teach your children about literacy and numeracy whilst doing your normal weekly shop.


Staffing Update

11th April 2018

Welcome to Tracey, Katelyn and Gosia who have all recently joined us. Welcome also to Julie Munro who joins us every Monday afternoon. Julie is a P1 teacher at Crombie School and has been joining us to increase her knowledge of the early year’s curriculum. It is great having her and we have been sharing lots of good ideas.


Enquiry / Tinker Table

11th April 2018

Many thanks to everyone who donated some of their old technologies for our enquiry table. We have loved taking things to bits! We are still looking for more remote controls, cameras, laptops, sky boxes, calculators etc. Please remember us when you are clearing out.


Thank YOU Apache

11th April 2018

A HUGE thank you goes to George at Apache who helped us to purchase this wonderful music trolley and instruments. George was sooooo impressed with us when we came for our sing song at Christmas that he insisted on buying us this lovely present. Thank you so much Apache. We will get lots of good use out of our new instruments.
