We are back at nursery with our batteries recharged this morning, ready for a week of fun learning! This week is National Maths Week, so we are focusing on counting to 10 in our rhyme of the week which is 10 Green Bottles. It is a useful way of learning the order of the numbers, backwards as well as forwards- important for developing a solid concept of number. We will be celebrating maths all around us, in the garden and playground as well as in our playrooms with lots of fun activities. Pictures to follow – watch this space!!!
Our lovely colleague, Fiona Drysdale is having her last day at nursery today for a while. This is due to a very happy forthcoming event. She and her partner are expecting a Christmas baby! Her group – Fiona’s Foals- are going to join Debbie’s Ducklings group. We will be keeping in touch with Fiona via Teams on the Playroom computer, so she will still be with us – just from home.
We have welcomed lots of new members of staff over the last few weeks. We have some of the staff from the New Oakburn Early Years Centre, who will be with us until their building is ready. We are really enjoying having such a large staff team- our new colleagues have brought lots of new and different skills into our nursery, and both staff and children are really enjoying getting to know them all.
We also recently welcomed Jennifer Fox, a new Early Years Worker for Milngavie EYC, who will be working mornings, and Elaine Jeffrey, Early Years Worker for Oakburn EYC, who will be working Thursdays and Fridays. Glamorous photos This year our centre is closed for an In-service day on Friday 9th October, but will be open as usual, during the school’s October Week holiday. If your child is taking this week off, please let us know. We are keeping our fingers and toes crossed for some lovely autumn sunshine.
