The preschool children at Melville Street are currently involved in planning our nursery garden.
They have been choosing which flowers and vegetables they would like to plant, then we took a trip up to Dobbies garden centre to get the plants and seeds we needed.
The children loved working with Kenny and Graeme to plant the seeds and flowers in the correct place.
It is now our job to ensure the plants are looked after by watering and caring for them everyday. We are very excited about the prospect of growing our very own apple tree.
I am sure you’ll agree it’s looking fab!
Our babies and tweenies at Melville Street have been making the most of the sunshine by getting outdoors.
We have been enjoying time at Pittincrieff Park and Princes Street Gardens.
The birds loved us as we fed them some of our leftover sandwiches!
The toddlers at Doune Terrace enjoyed a sunny day at Edinburgh Zoo last week.
After reading The Tiger who Came to Tea at nursery, they went I Search of a real tiger.
They found him lazing in the sun!
Look at our toddlers having fun at Vogrie Park.
It was so exciting sitting on the big chair – I don’t think we have ever sat on something so big!
Then we went a walk and found the snake from the Gruffalo in the woods.
We can’t wait to visit the park again.
The pre school children at Walker Street have been learning all about looking after the wildlife in the forest.
We came across some poorly bees and Steve taught us how to help them.
You mix together some sugar and water and gently lift the bee into it, if they can have a little drink, they are able to get some strength back and fly away.
It was very exciting to watch.
The pre school children at Melville Street spent Friday baking cakes, face painting and creating superheroes to raise money for Cash for Kids Superhero Day.
The children had a fab day and it was so much fun seeing what superhero their friends came to nursery as, everyone put so much thought into the outfits!
We would like to say a big thank you to parents for all their kind donations, we raised a fantastic £152.38.
Its true what they say, not all superheros wear capes
The tweenies at Doune Terrace are loving their books just now.
They enjoy being read to, but also like to read the books all on their own.
We just adore their concentration!
Our beautiful new babies in Melville Street are settling in well and are enjoying all the sensory activities on offer in our fantastic baby room.
Blowing bubbles and watching them float to the floor then pop is a favourite pass time for our littlest members.
It is mesmerising for children and staff alike.
