Say Hello To Beatriz

Beatriz Monoz - Nursery PractitionerHello!

My name is Beatriz Muñoz, I am Spanish and I am 25 years old.

I have a degree in Pedagogy, the method and practice of teaching.

I consider myself an enthusiastic, friendly person. I love working with children because it gives you the immense responsibility of teaching them to be better and at the same time they teach you to grow personally and professionally.

I will use every second of my time in Melville Street Nursery to contribute my bit for these little people who will one day be our future.

Introducing Rae

Rae Prestage - Nursery AssistantHi, my name is Rae and I can’t wait to get to know everyone at Melville Street Nursery.

Before working for the nursery, I worked for Fife Council as an apprentice for Active Fife. This was a job which centred around physical activity for all age groups.

I have just started my SVQ and I am really excited to learn more about childcare.

I look forward to meeting you all.


Sainsbury’s Active Kids

active schoolIt’s that time of year and once again we are collecting Active Kids vouchers.

If we could kindly ask parents who shop at Sainsbury’s to pop any vouchers that they collect into the boxes provided in each nursery, it would be mush appreciated.

All of our nurseries benefit from these vouchers and every year the children are so excited to see what sports and cooking equipment we get donated from Sainsbury’s.

Thank You.

Burns Day at Melville Street

Robert Burns_colour 200_tcm4-392844We will be celebrating Burn’s Day in nursery on 25th January.

The children will have a Burn’s Supper for tea and we have all planned Scottish themed activities appropriate for each room including Scottish music and dance, art activities and baking/food tasting.

We would also like to invite children (and staff) to wear something tartan if they have anything.

Kind regards


Pre School: A Space Odyssey

This month in Pre School we have been learning all about space and our solar system.

We have been making our own planets and have been learning some songs to help us remember new facts about each of the planets. We still have lots to to learn and are enjoying transforming our room.

Look out for sign up sheets for our upcoming trip to Dynamic Earth where we will be getting a special space tour!
