Kids Rock!

05th October 2018

e LOVE Kids Rock with Leanne! Leanne uses original songs and a range of music genres - from Beethoven to The Beatles to Baa Baa black sheep! This really helps to inspire our imaginations. It is great fun to work through the learning experiences and outcomes of the Curriculum for Excellence in a magical, musical way! Leanne will soon be working with our Wellie Tots and Wellie Babies too. We can’t wait!


Individual Care/Personal Plan

05th October 2018

Aberdeen City Council have recently asked all nurseries to review their Individual Child Care Plans. We have done this and I am happy to say that we have only had to make minimal changes to ours. We will however have to ask ALL parents to complete and submit the revised Individual Care / Personal Plan for your own child/ren. This is to ensure consistency for EVERY child across the nursery. It is very important that we have the SAME information for everyone. We will email these out to you very soon. Paper copies can also be found in reception. Aberdeen City Council have also asked us to ensure that all Individual Care / Personal Plans are updated by parents at least every 8 weeks. Don't worry - we WON'T ask you to fill out ALL of this information every eight weeks! We WILL however ask you to provide us with any NEW information and to sign that you have updated the Plan. We can only apologize for any inconvenience caused. We know that it is annoying to be faced with lots of documents to complete (especially when you have already done something similar) but we promise that we will keep it to a minimum and will make it as easy as possible. Many thanks for your ongoing support. Please just ask if you require any additional information in the meantime.

Well done to Braydon and Kasper for naming our new mascot! King Wellington LOVES a cuddle! Thank you also to Mabel (Kayleigh’s granny) for crocheting our amazing Very Hungry Caterpillar! We LOVE feeding him all of his food as he is always extremely hungry!


Thank you from the bottom of our hearts

13th August 2018

HUGE thanks also 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. A special thanks has to go to all of the pre-school parents who contributed to the lovely meal at Café Andaluz for Wellie Beans staff. They had a wonderful night out and can’t thank you all enough.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 best for all of our children and families.
