Hello, my name is Tianna and I have recently started at Melville Street Nursery, working with the tweenies.
My passion is to work with children and help them learn and develop new skills.
I am looking forward to going on to work towards a childcare qualification in the near future.
I am a very bubbly person and feel my personality will fit in well with the tweenie age group.
One of our Doune Terrace pre school mums recently enjoyed a Spa Day with friends.
After much discussion of this in nursery, the children decided they wanted to have one of their own!
They made face masks, relaxed on the mats to some music, and gave each other a foot massage.
It was such a peaceful afternoon.
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!
Hi, my name is Sofia and I have recently left Broughton High School to come and work at Walker Street Nursery.
Working with children is something I have always wanted to do. I babysit for my friend’s children which I love and I am always helping my family out too.
I also gained experience working in Prospect Bank Primary School.
I am currently working towards my SVQ Level 3 qualification and I am looking forward to getting to know all of the children.
I adore animals. I have 2 dogs and 1 cat and in my spare time I enjoy taking my dogs on walks along the beach.
Our children at Walker Street Nursery were lucky enough to explore Maureen Crandles garden today.
We were there on a very special visit – to help harvest the apples and pears from the beautiful fruitful trees.
We filled five huge tubs of the fruit which we donated to businesses for everyone to enjoy.
And of course we kept a load back for Suzi to make some yummy fruit crumble.
