Miss Smith came over from Hill of Fearn Primary to make a fire in our Nursery garden.

‘It was cotton wool and leaves and sticks.  There was smoke and fire.  Marshmallows on a stick, put them on the fire.  Put it between the biscuits then eat it.  It was yummy and delicious!’P1010343


Mini Bakers

We were learning about bakers.  We wrote a list down.  The list told us what we needed.  We had a chef’s hat ’cause if you don’t have a hat you’re not a chef!  We baked the cakes and then we put icing on it.  Mummy came to buy cakes.  Mummy gave money ’cause she bought some cakes.  They pay with money and I give the change.  I ate the chocolate one and it was yummy!

Childcare Provision

The Scottish Government has proposed to increase the provision of free childcare to 1140 hours per year for children who are 3 or 4 years old, as well as for vulnerable 2 year olds who are eligible for the 600 hours free entitlement through the Children & Young People’s Act 2014.  With this in mind we are conducting a survey exploring how parents would wish to use this increase. The results of this survey will help guide policy on early years child care provision. In order for the survey to produce representative results it is important that we reach as many parents of 3 or 4 year old children from as wide a variety of back grounds as possible, this includes those who do not currently use free child-care provision.


The survey is available at the following link.
