Thank you from the bottom of our hearts

23rd August 2019

HUGE thanks for ALL of the really lovely cards and gifts that we have received as children have been leaving. This is extremely kind, generous and thoughtful and means a huge amount to all staff. I have to say that all of the emails, messages and cards have really brought a tear to my eye. The very kind words mean such a huge amount as it proves that we have achieved what we set out to do. We genuinely only really do want the very best for all of our children and families.


Best of luck to our boys and girls who have been leaving us to go to P1 and school nursery

23rd August 2019

Our school leavers really enjoyed their Graduation party and did us proud! They loved the surprise visit from the magician and confidently strutted their stuff on the red carpet in front of a very proud audience. We will miss you ALL very, very much but know that you are all ready for P1 and that each and every one of you will go far!


Life Skills Awards – August 2019

23rd August 2019

During August we will be reinforcing ALL of our Life Skills Awards before we move on to our next colour in September. Our Life Skills Awards are up outside each room. Please reinforce these very important skills at home too. I have attached these for your information and consultation. Do we need to add anything? What do you see as important Life Skills for your children? Please let us know.


Children’s Attendance and Registers

23rd August 2019

It is very important that ALL parents remember to sign their children IN and OUT of nursery on a daily basis. Please also let us know by 10am if your child will not be attending nursery on that day. Staff will contact parents after 10am to ascertain the whereabouts of your child. This is in line with our Child Protection and Health and Safety Policies. Thank you.
