The children at Little Einsteins Nursery in Dundee have found various activities to keep them amused over the summer.
The 2 -3 year olds have been learning all about transport and took a trip to the local bus station.
Here are the 2 – 5 year olds making the most of a dry sunny day playing with the parachute in the garden.
Our 1-2 years enjoyed playing with the tents and tunnels hiding from one another inside on a rainy day
Our 0-1 (babies) were learning all about “me”. The staff drew around each child and asked the parents to bring in pictures from home to add to the family tree on our display board.

Calvin Ogilvie, a popular Early Years Practitioner at Little Einsteins Dundee, nursery has been hitting the headlines this week. The Evening Telegraph, Dundee’s local evening paper, featues him in their Jobs section as a man working in a role not always immediately thought of for men. Calvin also had support from Barnardo’s Scotland Works service which lead him into this role.
Calvin has already completed his SVQ3 in Childcare and although he is the only male in the team at Dundee he has found everyone to be very supportive and friendly and he thinks the boys who attend the nursery enjoy having a male member of staff around. Ashley, Manager of the Nursery said in her interview that “Calvin has slotted in very well and he is a hit with the children and their parents too”.
Kaylee Adamson was voted “Employee of the Year” at Little Einsteins, Dundee nursery. During the last year Kaylee finished her SVQ 3 in Childcare and has helped run the 3 – 5 year olds room where she is very popular with the children and their parents.
Some of the comments accompanying Kaylee’s nominations included:-
- “Kaylee does a good job”
- “my child’s favourite teacher” and
- “I know I can go to Kaylee about my child regarding information etc”
Overall Kaylee is doing a great job and working well with the children.
Well Done Kaylee – enjoy the extra week’s annual leave this year that winning has earned you!
