Planting our own Vegetables in our ECO Garden
We are very excited to tell you that our new greenhouse has been delivered so we can grow a wider range of vegetables and fruits in our garden to use in our healthy meals. Our chef Diane has been busy planting our new vegetables with our 3-5 year old children and we can’t wait to see what we manage to grow this year! Watch this space!
Swimming at Royal Commonwealth Pool, Edinburgh
We help our children to become confident individuals and successful learners by providing free swimming lessons at the Royal Commonwealth Pool, Edinburgh. These promote health and well-being in early years. Our children have so much fun and love their outings to the pool each week.
Yoga Classes, Tatty Bumpkins and Baby Bumpkins
All of our children have the opportunity to attend yoga classes on a Monday Morning. "Tatty Bumpkin" is a lovely rag doll who comes along each week to take us on a new adventure where the children can learn different poses and stretches while exploring their imagination. Our children learn about physical activity, turn taking and participation while taking part in an activity which they love.
Spanish Classes for our 2-5 year old Children
Lorenna is our Teacher from "Spanish Amigos" who comes to visit us on a Tuesday and Thursday. Our children thoroughly enjoy learning a new language and love practising songs and rhymes too. Our children learn basic words and phrases and are particularly good at colours and numbers! It's so great to see the children engaged in this fantastic experience.
Horse riding for our 3-5 year olds
On a Wednesday morning some of our pre-school children visit Tower Farm Stables where they enjoy a 40 minute Horse Riding lesson. After each lesson they enjoy 30 minutes of stable management where they are able to help staff to groom and feed the horses. This activity is at an additional cost.
Our E-Learning Journals allow you, as parents, to see your child’s/children’s observations at nursery at the click of a button.
Whether you are out shopping, or sitting at your desk at work, you can securely login to your child’s/children’s E-Learning Journals and see just what they are getting up to while they are at nursery.
On site children’s hairdressing service
Save that trip to the hairdressers!
As part of our learning environment we have incorporated an Interactive Smart Board which our children can use at their leisure throughout the day. Our Smart Board offers exciting and stimulating learning experiences where our children can develop their IT interests.
