We are excited to announce that Maureen Crandles, our owner and director, will be taking part in a feature on Friday morning on BBC Radio Scotland.
Maureen will be talking to the host on gender stereotypes and how we combat them in our nurseries.
Tune in at 11.10am, it is sure to be a great discussion!
We are so excited to announce that Melville Street beat last year’s total and raised a fantastic £560 for McMillan Cancer Support.
We would like to say a big thank you to all parents, staff and children who baked especially for the event.
We even had grandparents and staff’s families baking yummy goodies to help out.
The tombola proved to be a success too so well done to any winners.
A special thank you also has to go to Steph for organising the whole morning.
Good work all round!

We are so excited to announce that all of our staff have now attended a 2 hour training session on Yoga for Children.
During this training we covered many different yoga positions, breathing exercises and group yoga moves.
Yoga helps to engage the heart, mind and body. It helps children to develop their emotional intelligence, communication skills, trust and empathy.
It is also a great non competitive activity which helps to nurture teamwork and leadership, and helps to provide a calmer and more productive learning environment.
But most importantly, it is lots of fun!
