The children at No 17 Walker Street spent the day at Deep Sea World last week and had a blast!
We have been looking at creatures that live under the sea and couldn’t wait to get up close and even touch some ourselves.
It was so exciting to touch the starfish – they were very hard and bumpy.
We finished the day by measuring ourselves against the great white shark but we didn’t even reach the fin!
For those of you who are interested in finding out about raising you child bilingual, there is some great information contained in the link below (‘read more’ for app users)
We are now well in to the transition process and the children have been practising in their new rooms. You should receive transition paperwork before your child moves to the new room. Please feel free to contact myself or Damaris or Claire should you wish to discuss any issues.
There are a few changes in staffing which will take place soon:
Claire Allan has been appointed joint manager with Damaris. This is to help with having 2 locations. Claire will focus on the 0 – 3 years age group and Damaris will manage No 17 Walker Street. Both ladies will cover for each other during absence and holidays.
Congratulations to Claire!
Steph Wilson goes off on maternity leave in October and I have appointed a new lady who has a paediatric qualification. Her name is Adeline Lebreton and she has significant experience with under 3’s.
Adeline will join the baby staff in August.
Morgan Fitzpatrick will also join us in No 10 Walker Street.
I have also appointed another teacher to join No 17 Walker Street. His name is Graeme Dawes Salazar and he will join the teaching team in August (after his wedding) and he is a G.T.C. registered teacher who brings many skills to the post. At present Graeme is working in our Melville Street Nursery.
Laura Serrano is off to Australia with her partner and we wish her every happiness and many thanks for all she has done in the pre-school room.
Sharon Morrison returns from maternity leave in August and will work with Shireen in No 17 Walker Street.
Chloe Connolly returns in October from Camp America.
Joe Crandles is off to Newcastle University in September.
I have also appointed Adam Mitchell who is in his second year of his education degree to cover whilst Chloe Conolly is off.
We have planned a Curriculum/Social Evening in September (date T.B.C.) and you will have a chance to meet the new and ‘old’ staff, hear about our plans and see what your clever children are doing.
The garden at No 10 Walker Street is almost there! The play equipment should arrive late July / early August and the conservatory should be completed in the next 2 weeks. YIPPEE! Thank you for your patience.
What a lovely day all the children from Walker Street had at North Berwick.
We had so much fun building sandcastles and splashing in the water, and all just in time for the sun coming out!
Congratulations to the children at Walker Street Nursery on their graduation.
It was a lovely day of celebrations, with staff and parents all enjoying the songs and presentation ceremony.
To the class of 2017, we wish you good luck in primary school and success for your futures.
It has been a joy to teach you all!
