We are celebrating Book Week Scotland from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd November. We will be exploring some brilliant Scottish books and well known books that have been transformed into Scots and Glaswegian.
On Thursday 21st November we will take part in an Author’s live event which will celebrate 20 years of the Gruffalo with readings in Scots and Gaelic.
On Friday 22nd November we are holding a get together “A Blether Book Swap”. There will chat, coffee, cakes and of course books that you may want to swap. Please drop in from 9 to 11 and bring your friends and family – everyone is welcome!
Please come along to our Bookbug Sessions on Friday 15th November. Pop in at 9.15 or 1.15 and all babies, toddlers and their families are most welcome. See you on Friday!
We had a lovely morning for our walk today – cold but dry! Everyone was wrapped up warm and so we set off at 9am from Cart Mill.
Soon we were in the woods of Busby Glen Park. The colours of the leaves on the trees as we walked along the woodland path was just beautiful.
After the wonderful walk in the woods it was time for a refreshment and a well deserved treat.
A great big thank you to our children, parents and staff for making this a lovely walk with friends today.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend. See you on Monday x
We I It was our last week in the forest for most groups and we reflected on what we have enjoyed during our 10 weeks. These are some of the experiences the children loved:
Swinging through the air!
Toasting on the fire!
Today we celebrated our adventures in the forest with a sausage sandwich and a hot chocolate.
That’s Forest School over until February when we will have new groups of children to take on our adventures.

We are busy getting our plans finalised for the Big Fit Winter Family & Friends Walk on Saturday 9th November.
We will meet in the car park from 8.45 and be ready to walk at 9am. We will be walking to Busby Glen Park and then on into the the forest to the woodland walkway. This is the route we take to our Forest School site.
We will walk so far along the route and then return on a different path to the play park where there will be tea, coffee, water and something sweet waiting for us. We aim to be back at Cart Mill by 11am.
Please come along and bring your family, friends and dogs too. Everyone is welcome.
It’s Stay and Play Week from Monday 4th to Friday 8th November. We have a selection of experiences that staff will lead across the week that we hope you will be able to come along to. Please click on the link below to view the timetable.
We welcome parents and other family members at any time next week so that you can experience play alongside your child.
We look forward to seeing you next week!
Stay and Play Week November 2019
It’s week 7 already and this week the children enjoyed whittling a stick with a potato peeler and then wrapping the croissant pastry round the stick to cook it on the fire. It is very comforting and satisfying to bake something then eat it especially on a cold/wet day.
Cart Mill staff wish all of our children, parents, families and friends a very happy holiday weekend!
The centre is closed on Friday 27th September and Monday 30th September. We re-open on Tuesday 1st October at 8 am.
We hope you get a chance to enjoy the great outdoors!
We are hosting our 5th Big Coffee Afternoon tomorrow, Wednesday 25th September at 4pm till 5pm. At the same time we are also having an informal ‘Meet the Team’ when you can meet and chat with your child’s key worker. We hope that you will come along with your family and friends and enjoy some coffee, cake and chat in our pop up coffee shop.
We will be baking with the children and hope that you can do some baking tonight or tomorrow with your child at home but if not please do not worry just come along. We will gratefully accept all cakes – baked at home or baked by a store.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible tomorrow!
