Dear Parents / Carers

Update and Reminders

We have recently taken on three new staff.  Tina and Grace clean the building for two hours every evening.  We also have another Tina who is our new housekeeper.  She is helping children during tea-time and attending to house-keeping duties.

We continue to upgrade the nursery, our latest items being the new kitchen floor, new carpet in the sleep room and furniture for the staff room.  Work continues in our garden with a new shelter for the children, the creation of a mud area and a mud kitchen.  A wide range of outdoor resources have also been purchased to enhance the children’s outdoor learning.

All children now have outdoor suits.  We ask that you provide named wellies, hats, scarves and gloves.  However, we do have spares so no children should miss outdoor experiences.

We recently received a number of balance bikes due to a member of staff attending a bikeability course with Clackmannanshire Council.

We have also purchased many toys, games and art and craft resources ready for the festive season.

Dates to remember:

If your child does not attend on a Thursday but you would like them to participate in the show and/or party please either book them in or stay with your child.  Please inform the office either way.  Thank you.

Kind regards
