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.
On what is International Women’s Day, we would like to celebrate our very own superwoman – Maureen Crandles.
Maureen has been running Early Days Nurseries for nearly 20 years and is the reason we continue to welcome new children day after day.
Maureen is a teacher first and a businesswomen second, she has had thousands of children in her care and at 72, shows no signs of slowing down!
Outside of Early Days, Maureen is also a wife, mum, granny, sister and a friend and everyone who knows her will agree on what a wonderful woman she truly is.
Who will you be celebrating today?
Hi, my name is Hai Hua Wang. I was born and brought up in Nanning which is in Southern China. I have lived in Edinburgh for the past thirteen years.
I have just taken up my position as nursery practitioner am I am really looking forward to working with the children.
I have a very caring nature and I think this will suit me perfectly for looking after children.
In my leisure time I love to travel and experience different cultures which helps me understand the way different people around the world function.
We love story time at all our nurseries so are very excited to take part in ‘World book Day’ on Thursday 7th March.
All children are invited to come to nursery dressed as their favourite story book character.
They can also bring in their favourite story to share during the day. Staff will incorporate some fun activities throughout the day also.
Any children not in on Thursday can dress up during the week and we will ensure they get the chance to share their stories.
