Nursery News November 2016

Care Inspection Report

The Care Inspectorate report of their recent inspection is available and has been emailed to parents. We are very pleased to advise that we have received “Very Good” gradings across all four categories and the report includes a number of very complimentary comments from parents (and children!).

Thanks again to all parents who completed feedback forms and spoke to the inspector. Thanks also to all the staff for their hard work in achieving this very positive outcome.

Policy of the Month

Our policy of the month for December is Safe Internet use and this will be issued to all parents. The Internet is now regarded as an essential resource to support teaching and learning and Computer skills are vital to accessing life-long learning and employment. It is important for children to learn to be e-safe from an early age and the Nursery can play a vital part in starting this process.

Book Week

We celebrated Scottish Book Week at the nursery in the last week of November. Over the course of the week the children brought in books from home to read with their friends and teachers. Our dress-up day went well and the children enjoyed showing off their book character outfit!

We would like to say thank you to William’s mum Eva for coming in and spending time reading to the Rabbits and Foxes in both Polish and English!

Forest Schools

We are coming up to the last week of Forest Schools for 2016. The children have had great fun going on the 41 bus and spending time exploring at Blackford pond, especially on the muddy hill! We will be resuming Forest Schools next year and plan to take the Foxes and younger Rabbits to the woodland at Sciennes for shorter Forest Schools sessions as well as taking the older Rabbits to Blackford pond.

Staff

We would like to welcome back Angela to Meadows Nursery at Millerfield Place. Angela has been with Meadows Nursery since 2006 and moved to Pilrig when it opened in 2014. Angela will be working from 9:30 to 3:30 on the ground floor with the Rabbits & Foxes.

Reverse Advent Calendar

Christmas is fast approaching and we have decided that we will collect for a local food bank using a reverse advent calendar. The idea is that the basket is added to every day in December and before Christmas we will take it to a local foodbank. Foodbanks take tinned food, items which have long shelf life, pasta etc but also toiletries so whatever you wish to donate would be great, even if every family and staff member donates one item we will have a good collection by the end of December.

Our reverse Advent Calendar is now in the front hall.

Diary Dates
