Nursery Staff Forego Their Secret Santa

Posted by | Dundee | No Comments

The kind-hearted staff at Little Einsteins nursery in Dundee decided to forego their usual “Secret Santa” gift this year and instead, spent their money buying gifts for less fortunate children in Dundee. Pictured above (l – r) are Ashley Middleton, Dawn Henderson, Jade Ireland (with Willo), and Danielle Clark with the gifts they have collected. Willo wasn’t part of the collection by the way – she belonged to Kiley, the organiser of the toy collection but Jade couldn’t resist a cuddle with the gorgeous puppy!

Well done to everyone at the nursery who took part and bought a gift for the local children.

We had a fire engine come to visit Little Einsteins Perth nursery which caused great excitement amongst the children. The fire brigade had a fire safety talk and then the children got a chance to sit in the fire engine.

ARBROATH WINTER NEWSLETTER

We have all taken an interest in winter and Christmas over the past week. The children are hoping for snow which generated conversation about snowmen and lead to the staff and children creating some big friendly snowmen for our wall.

The chat continued with talk about outdoor clothes in the winter, hats, scarves, gloves and cosy coats.
