It is Red Nose Day this Friday, and as we love a theme day at our nurseries, we are inviting all children and staff to come along for a ‘Pyjama Party’!
Comic Relief is a fantastic cause, so in exchange for a small donation, the boys and girls can come to nursery dressed in their pjs and slippers.
Staff will plan some fun activities and hopefully we can raise a bit of money in the process.
It is lovely to see all our nursery children dressed up as different book characters today.
We have been reading some of their favourite books from home which all of the children are enjoying.
Reading is vital to the growth of a child’s imagination and such an important part of growing up.
Let us all spend some time appreciating our most loved books today and encourage our children to do them same.
Melville Street have hit the jackpot this week as Linda, our fantastic cook from OCH has decided to move nurseries on a permanent basis!
Its wasn’t an easy choice for Linda to make, however meeting and training her replacement means she is leaving the children at Old Coates House in very capable hands.
Look out for a little introduction on who will be taking over soon!
My name is Sara Gómez, and I arrived in Edinburgh in September 2018. As soon as I arrived I fell in love with the city and with my job.
I first studied my degree in Spain and worked as a teacher for two years in my hometown. As soon as I realized I wanted to work with young children I started a HNC in Childcare Education, and I am currently focused on my final project.
What I expect from my job in this nursery as a skilled and enthusiastic emerging teacher, is to enjoy taking care of children. I would also like to use my current knowledge to support the way of teaching here, and to introduce some new aspects from my experience in Spain.
