Our nursery is now an All Inclusive nursery, meaning that we provide all meals, snacks, nappies, wipes and cows milk for your convenience. Our meals and snacks are sourced locally and prepared and cooked freshly by our on-site nursery Chef.
Little Legends Football
Little Legends Footbal gives children something to look forward to each week and is a great way for parents to enrol their child in an extra-curricular activity without an additional time investment. Classes are around 45 minutes long and are filled with football fun for your Little Legend.
Children of all ages love our yoga sessions held each Monday. Children learn about physical activity, turn taking and participation whilst having lots of fun.
Settling in Sessions
Our nursery offers settling in sessions. Parents can bring their child for a couple of hours first, gradually introducing the child to a new environment. Settling in sessions are aimed at helping your child to adapt to their new surroundings and become more familiar with the staff and other children.
Eco Schools is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world and is designed to encourage action on sustainable development education issues. Our children love getting involved in their Eco Schools projects and learning about how to help protect the environment.
Physical Development Stars is a programme that supports children’s movement for a minimum of three hours per day in line with government guidelines. Our practitioners look at ways everyday routines and activities can be adapted to encourage fine and gross motor physical development in a fun way, limiting the time that children are sitting down.
Taking part in fundraising activities helps children to learn about others that are less fortunate than themselves and understand how we can help them. Fundraising events are good fun and are a great way to get children, families and communities together. We are currently fundraising for Fairshare.
Caring for animals can be a very calming and relaxing experience for children as well as an opportunity to assess risk. This provides many vital learning opportunities and skills that supports children's transition to school and adult life. Children name, feed and care for nursery pets. We currently look after a guinea pig.
E-Learning Journals allow you to see your child’s activities at nursery with the click of a button. Staff upload images and notes about your child's participation in activities at nursery for you to access wherever you are. Our nursery tablets offer exciting and stimulating learning experiences tailored to challenge and engage little ones.
Our nursery enjoys great ties with our local community and we are often out and about visiting local sights and getting involved in events. We have built up a link with our local care home, and the children enjoy visiting to sing to the older generation.
Christmas Nativity Show
We celebrate Christmas by putting on a wonderful Christmas show for friends and family each year. There's always much excitement in preparing for the show as we learn songs and organise our special dress ups.
Our nursery encourages children to celebrate festivals throughout the year. This is one of the best ways for children to learn about different religions and cultures.
Sensory rooms are calm and tranquil spaces that support children’s sensory stimulation through the resources and experiences provided. Sensory stimulation – touch, taste, smell, sight and sound – is vital for young children’s brain development, as the experiences children are instinctively seeking help them to make connections that become stronger over time, developing their neural pathways. Supporting children’s sensory experiences from birth have a long-lasting impact on the adults they become.
In recognition that education begins in the home, we are fully committed to a partnership approach with parents. Parents are kept up to date with monthly newsletters, parent focus groups and parent’s evenings. Parents are also able to keep up to date with activities going on in the nursery by following our group social media accounts; Holyrood Facebook and Holyrood Twitter.
We celebrate the big move to primary school with a special graduation ceremony each year—caps, gowns, the works!
We accept your courier deliveries to make things that little bit easier for busy mums and dads.
