We’ll have lots of excitement in the nursery over the next week as the decorations, trees and festive preparations get under way.
St Andrew’s Day
On Tuesday 30th November children are invited to wear a little tartan if they would like to (please don’t worry as we have some spare) as we celebrate St Andrew’s Day by singing and listening to traditional music, having a Scottish snack and joining in some simple ceilidh dancing.
We would like to say a huge Netherlee welcome to Mrs Emma Dowdall, a temporary member of staff, who will work in Saplings on Thursday and Friday each week. While staff work with all of the children it will be lovely for Mrs Dowdall to take on the role as keyworker with the Green Group on Thursday and Friday. Mrs Dowdall was really excited to have started yesterday and got straight in to playing and learning alongside our children.

Masks and Social Distancing
We thank you for continuing to protect our staff and other adults at pick up and drop off time by wearing a mask and social distancing. These measures are helping us all to stay safe.
We know that you’ve enjoyed sharing the Special Books by the wonderful comments you’ve written in them. We thank you for being so appreciative of all the hard work our staff put in to ensuring that every child is supported, nurtured and challenged while at nursery. If you’ve not yet had time to return the Special Book we really do need it back to continue your child’s learning story. Thank you.
Netherlee Living Advent
We are delighted to be joining in this local community event once again this year. Our school and nursery will be joining in the festive fun by unveiling windows on 1st December. Our nursery window will be able to be viewed from Linn Park Ave in the Acorn building. More information can be found in the attachment.
A big thank for your contributions to our Nursery Fund which have helped with funding some of the presents from Santa. We are so grateful for every penny donated as this helps us to provide parties, baking, playdough etc for our children. We want to say a huge thank you to our Netherlee PTA for their generous contribution towards buying presents and party snacks for during the festive period as well.
Children are in for a treat on Friday 17th December as our lovely nursery catering staff, Michelle & Denise, will be cooking our first ever Christmas Lunch. There’s no need to order this special lunch as this will be the option on Friday 17th December.
Next Friday we’ll be in touch about festive events as we count down to Christmas…. have a lovely weekend.
