Nursery News June 2016
We continue to progress with the upgrade to the Pilrig nursery kitchen which will provide the additional capacity to undertake the trial provision of lunches at Millerfield Place. This includes installation of a larger commercial dishwasher & additional catering sinks to meet the demands of cooking for more children. We expect to be in a position to undertake the trial before the end of the summer and we will keep you updated.
Out & About
We have been enjoying trips to the museum and library this month! The children have done really well sitting and listening to the stories from the librarians at the library and always enjoy choosing books for us to bring back to nursery.
Our Tennis lessons over in the Meadows have also been going really well. The children taking part are all becoming more confident each week and have enjoyed learning new skills.
The Hedgehogs have enjoyed walks around the Meadows and trips to the small park. The children love to explore the climbing frame and the little roundabout!
Children & Activities
The Hedgehogs, Rabbits and Foxes have continued to love taking part in Tatty Bumpkins and Boogie Beat which are carried out by Tara & Zoe. If you would like more details on these classes please let us know.
Our Rabbits did a great job performing their summer show! The children worked really hard to write the story and learn all the songs. They had lots of fun painting props and backdrops for their show.
We are looking forward to performing some of the songs for the care home residents when they visit on 1 July.
We are pleased to welcome Kadie who recently started as Deputy Manager. Kadie has a BA in Childhood and Youth Studies and was formerly Lead Person in the Pre School room at our sister nursery at Meadows Nursery at Pilrig. Kadie joined Meadows in early 2015 and will lead the ground floor as well s undertaking the Deputy Manager role.
We will sadly be saying goodbye to Rebecca at the end of July. Rebecca is leaving us to move back down south to be closer to her family.
