I hope everyone is having fun in Wraparound and enjoying their nursery holidays? I have been busy writing thank you cards this week for all my wonderful leaving gifts. I am so overwhelmed by all the surprises and kind words from everyone at the end of term.
I am still very puzzled as to how the video of my journey at BEYC was recorded and edited without me knowing ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING about it? Not one of the children even let slip either, which is even more puzzling! Thank you to Miss Kelly and all the staff for springing that on me at the children’s moving on ceremony! Very unexpected but very much appreciated.
I really love my funny Goodbye Poem too and each time I read it I laugh and think of all the special memories. Thanks to Miss Heenan and the staff for all their input!
I am so lucky to have been part of the progressive journey of BEYC and had the pleasure of working alongside so many lovely children, families and staff over the last 12 years.
I feel very fortunate to have been a part of the wider West Lothian Early Learning and Childcare team over the past few years too and I am very grateful for all the learning and development opportunities that it has brought me.
Thanks also to the West Lothian Digital Learning and Teaching Team who have been my on call support over the years too. Not quite sure how I will manage without them?!
I would like to end my very last BEYC Blog post with a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to each and every one of you who have made the last 12 years so much fun! I will be thinking about you all at BEYC and in Primary 1 on the first day of term, as I start my new job with Education Scotland as a Digital Skills Development Officer.
Thank you to all our families who came along to see pre-school children receive their certificates at our Moving on Day Ceremonies. All children were wonderful singers, despite the very hot temperature today.
Please share the photos you took today with us, so we can add them to this blog post.
You can email them to Miss Wilkinson or Miss Kelly.
We are delighted to say our Garden Fete raised over £518.00 for the nursery, this is an amazing about and thank you to everyone for their generosity and help.
We would also like to say a huge thank you to everyone for taking the time to prepare a miniature garden. We are overwhelmed by the response and so proud of all the children’s achievements. The gardens are amazing and it is so nice to see the children’s personalities coming through in them. We have put all the gardens on display at the nursery entrance so everyone can see and enjoy them. On Tuesday all children that took part will receive a certificate to celebrate their achievement.
Please take your garden home at your convenience.

We have loved having Dave, a visiting music specialist, visit our nursery each week to work with us in our groups.
Today was his last session at BEYC . Children experienced playing musical instruments, listenign games, songs and dance. We like playing musical statues to the fast and slow beats of Dave’s drums. The parachute games were lots of fun too! Look how high the Gruffalo bounced…..
