Nursery News March 2016

With Spring well underway, we are hoping to soon dispense with our hats, gloves and scarves and replace them with sunhats! Thank you to parents for labeling these items and for your patience & understanding when belongings are misplaced. It can be a challenge keeping track of them all!

Could parents please bring in a labeled sun hat for their child and sun cream if you’re opting not to use the nursery suncream. All parents should now have signed our new suncream & nappy cream consent forms which require re-signing every 6 months.

With the better weather, the children will end the day out in the garden more often and there may not always be staff in the Tree Room to answer the buzzer. We are aware of this and will ensure that Flower Room staff man the buzzer at the end of the day. Please, however let us know if you are having to wait to enter the nursery.

Out & About!

All who went to Edinburgh Zoo had a great time. Thank you to the parents (& grandparents) who accompanied us. The weather held out for us and we all enjoyed the bus trip there & back.

Our next Forest Schools block is to Johnston Terrace Wildlife Garden and will begin on Monday 11 April for 6 weeks. We are including all the children leaving for school in this group plus the next 6 oldest children. It’s always a lovely walk to the garden through the Meadows, passed Greyfriar’s Bobby and on to the Grassmarket.

Our regular visits to Glencairn care home continue & we welcomed some of the residents to the nursery recently for a sing song and some tea! We plan to continue with our Tuesday slot until all the Tuesday children have had a chance to visit the care home and then move it to a different day.

Our trips to the library on George 1V Bridge and Museum will resume after the Easter holidays when it is generally less busy. In the meantime we’ve been getting out to the Meadows park on a regular basis.

Children & Activities

Our new children, who started recently, are settling in well and it’s good for us to provide opportunities for siblings to play together. We also try to structure our day so that children of different ages can play together as there is a lot to be gained from this. Kiera and Misha start this month on the middle floor and we look forward to making them welcome.

Our next theme in the nursery is Our Community and we’d welcome any parent who works in the local community to speak with the older children about what they do. We plan to arrange visits from community police, fire fighters, rangers etc.


As you know, Samantha has moved on from Meadows Nursery and we’d like to thank her for all her efforts at the nursery and wish her all the best.

Rebecca has started on the ground floor working with the older children and is also mum to Kiera. Please say hello to Rebecca if you have not already been introduced.

Diary Dates

We were pleased to see a number of parents at our parents evening this Thursday 7 April and again hope to see as many parents as possible on Thursday 5 May for our Topic Session “A Typical Day”.

Our Parent Forum is on Monday 23 May at 6.30pm.
