Big Clean for the Queen

Posted by | Kirkcaldy | No Comments

The Inventors at Little Einsteins Nursery in Kirkcaldy took part in a nationwide clean-up in preparation for the Queen’s 90th birthday in June. The children were really excited to take their litter picking outside the nursery and enjoyed finding litter to pick up. Some of the children however were disappointed that the Queen herself didn’t turn up to see their good work!

The Project was organised by Fife Council who provided the litter pickers and bags.

Planting Trees

Posted by | Kirkcaldy | No Comments

During December some of the Inventors went to Ravenscraig Park in Kirkcaldy to plant 140 trees that we received from the Woodland Trust. Mike, our gardener, showed the children how to plant the trees.

The trees were a free community pack available from the Woodland Trust. We contacted Fife Council for permission to plant the various species of trees and they set aside an area in the park for us to plant them. This project is part of the biodiversity section in our eco schools programme.

The Inventors room at Little Einsteins Kirkcaldy performed the Nativity play at our Head Office on 11th December. The Nativity is always well attended by parents and wider family members and this year was no exception.

Summer Fun at Little Einsteins Kirkcaldy

Posted by | Kirkcaldy, Nursery News | No Comments

Some snaps from Kirkcaldy’s After School Club which has organised activities for the children who have been attending during their summer holidays. They have had trips to both Leven and Anstruther beach, the local park and they have been busy at the Nursery’s allotment. The allotment is in great shape just now with an assortment of vegetables including potatoes, onions, carrots, beetroot all growing well and looking very healthy. The Nursery is working with “Growing Kirkcaldy” as part of the towns entry in the Britain in Bloom contest.

Filming

Filming Excitement for the Afterschool Club

Posted by | Kirkcaldy, Nursery News | No Comments

The children who attend the Afterschool Club at Little Einsteins Kirkcaldy were at the allotment in Ravenscraig Park where they have been helping to plant vegetables and flowers recently when they realised that there was a TV film crew working at nearby Dysart harbour.

The whole town has been buzzing with excitement at the news that filming was taking place so they popped over for a look and were delighted as they were able to see the actors in costume for the television drama, Outlander. The harbour area had been transformed with props to look like it would have done in the 1700′s and so the outing became a quick history lesson for the children too.

Kirkcaldy Nursery Silver Eco Schools Award

Posted by | Kirkcaldy, Nursery News | No Comments

Little Einsteins Nursery in Kirkcaldy has received a silver Eco Schools Award recognising their achievement towards a sustainable lifestyle. The nursery has focused on recycling, growing and biodiversity projects, led by Deputy Manager, Kirsty Haston, who has carried out many hours of research in her own time to help the children meet the objectives.

The nursery also had a visit this week from the Kirkcaldy MSP, David Torrance, who was interested to learn exactly how they achieved the Award. He added his own congratulations and told Kirsty that he has lodged a motion within the Scottish parliament to announce their achievement.
