Monday morning news


It’s a dry day and we are happy to be out in the garden and playground.  We are lucky to have a nursery which has 2 outdoor spaces beside the playrooms and our children have settled really well into their bubbles.  We are spending another week in our current areas and then we will change over to allow all our children to enjoy both areas.  We ill be changing over on 31st August, 14th September and 28th September. Our staff will also change areas to be with their groups and our areas will be very thoroughly cleaned.

This week’s nursery rhyme is Humpty Dumpty – we are looking forward to practising our rhyme, identifying the rhyming words and sequencing the story.  We will also have great fun exploring effective wall building,  discussing the dangers of perching on high walls and looking at the effects of gravity on eggs!  Next week we are seeking out spiders and investigating Incy Wincy!

Can we remind you to let us know if your wee one is not coming in to nursery.  There are some sniffly coughs and colds around just now, and your child should stay home if they are not well.   We have to be very cautious in the current climate. If you have taken your child for a Covid test please could you let us know and provide a written copy of the result.  Thanks for your co-operation with this.

If you are going to take your child for a test, one of our mum’s who is a doctor, has offered to let you know what to expect at the Test Centre.  Please contact the nursery for more info.

Because we aren’t able to have our families in our nursery building just now, Juliana came up with the lovely idea of making a family tree for the hall.  We would be really grateful if you could send a photo of your family in to nursery for your wee one to put on the family tree.  It is reassuring for our wee children to always have access to your photo, and hopefully it won’t be too long before you can come in and see the tree too!  If you can hand your photo in to the staff member at the gate, we will make sure your child can put it onto the tree themselves.

Some parents have asked about Nursery uniform.  Our wee uniforms are very practical and cosy, and they can take the stress of getting dressed for nursery!   Polo shirts cost £6.50 and Sweatshirts cost £7.50.  This can be purchased from Baru, 5 Cowgate Kirkintilloch or online from:
