Doune Terrace toddlers spent a mindfulness day at the Botanic Gardens.
We took our special mindfulness basket with lots of different activities in it.
We started by ringing our meditation bowl, this helps the children wind down as the chimes become quieter and quieter.
We loved our smelling activity and this opens up the children’s senses to help with their concentration.
They then enjoyed walking on grass with their bare feet and chatted about how this feeling made them feel.
Hello my name is Enrique, I am from Madrid and moved to Edinburgh in 2015.
I studied Tourism and International Business and worked for a tour operator in Madrid for 3 years however, I have always wanted to work with children.
I am looking forward to working with the children in the nursery as I have been surrounded by children all of my life, with a younger brother and lots of younger cousins.
I love cycling and all outdoor sports.
Hi my name is Nadine and I am the new temporary cook at Doune Terrace Nursery.
I have a background in catering having worked in different catering settings over the last few years.
I love working with children and I’m looking forward to cooking healthy meals for everyone.
One day I hope to get involved working directly with the children as a childcare practitioner.
What a fantastic afternoon we had celebrating our Pre School children’s graduation at Doune Terrace.
We were all so proud of the boys and girls, they looked very dapper in their gowns and hats.
Good luck in your exciting next step at primary school, what bright futures you all have ahead of you.
Congratulations to our class of 2018.
Doune Terrace were so excited to pack their picnic bags last week and head off to North Berwick for the day.
The boys and girls look forward to this day every year, when the whole nursery gets together and enjoys a day at the beach.
This year was no exception and with the sun shining, they had the best day splashing about in the water and enjoying the swing park.
Can we go back this week please??
