🎈Today we said "Happy 30th Birthday" to the longest standing staff member of Donview Nursery 🎉 Lyndsay has been working at Donview since she left school, and we couldn't imagine nursery life without her! 😍 Thank you to everyone who wished her a happy birthday and made her day extra special 🌻

Hope you had a great day Lyndsay and thanks for sharing your cake with us 😊🎂

Lexis first day of school today and she said she had as much fun as she did at Donview so I'm taking that as a great sign! She will be in by soon to say hello to everyone as she wants to show off her big girl uniform!

It’s that time of year again where we bid a fond farewell to our school-leavers, as they move onto the next chapter in their learning journey, and they make way for the next generation of Donview Nursery children.

If you’d like to know more about our small, family-run nursery where love, laughter and learning are key to our success, please get in touch. We’ve been very busy with enquiries so spaces are limited.

We’d like to share a very special message from one of our Donview families...

Thank you to everyone raising awareness and celebrating those with Downs Syndrome at Nursery today.

As you will all be aware, our gorgeous Holly happens to have Downs Syndrome.

What you will not be aware of is just how much we struggled to get a Nursery. Donview was the only Nursery to say 'not a problem, we would love to have Holly'.

Within two minutes of being at Donview we knew we were in the right place for Holly. Not only because of the amazing staff (and you really are ❤) but because of the amazing kids and families.

We have felt truly accepted and loved as a family and for that we cannot thank you enough.

Lots of love
Andy and Marie ###

🌻Happy 10th Birthday Donview Nursery!

🌻🥳🎂We are 10 years old today!

We would like to thank all the families and staff that have come and gone over the years - you have all played an important role in our Donview Family. It's scary to think that our first group of preschoolers to graduate under our tenure are now in 3rd year of academy! We always wonder how our Donview children are doing after they leave us, so we'd love to hear from you.

We have learned so much over the years, and just when we think we've seen everything, something new comes along to teach us a lesson!

This video is just a tiny snapshot of lovely moments over the past 10 years - we hope you enjoy this wee trip down memory lane. 🌻🥰

It is great to hear the sound of children's laughter again in our nursery this morning, although, we are missing those who cannot return just yet. We hope it won't be too long before we can welcome everyone back to nursery. In the meantime, parents/carers - stay sane and enjoy this extra time with your wee ones.

If anyone's circumstances change, or your childcare needs change, please remember to get in touch with us straight away.

Lots of love from The Donview Team🌻

[08/27/20]   As we emerged out of lockdown, we were able to hold an abbreviated version of our preschool graduation for our preschoolers heading off to Primary 1. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, parents were able to log on remotely and watch the Zoom Graduation for our Class of 2020.

We have loved every minute of having them as part of our Donview Family and hope they’re settling into their new routines at big school now. We miss them already! Congratulations Class of 2020! 🌻🎓🥳

Yesterday, we opened our doors for the first time in 11 weeks, and welcomed back children of keyworkers and those returning to work in Phase 1. We spent all last week preparing, carrying out risk assessments and updating policies and procedures so we were fully ready for this week. But, we were a bit anxious about how the children would feel about coming back so we held zoom calls, prepared a wee video about how to do drop off and sent them a story about returning to nursery. Any worries we had melted away instantly when they all came running in with huge smiles and hugs.

They had an amazing first day back. It was lovely to hear children’s laughter and little voices telling us stories and asking questions all day! They definitely started to flag as the afternoon wore on, though, so pretty sure it was early beds all round - for the children and the staff! 🌻

School Readiness (pre-school to primary 1): gross motor skills

Parents of wee ones due to start school soon, please don’t worry if your child isn’t interested in writing or drawing. It’s so important to get the gross motor skills well embedded first, then the fine motor skills will fall into place naturally.

This is a super wee video with some simple ideas on how to encourage developing gross motor skills necessary for starting school. 🌻

Susan will be taking us through a series of pre-requisite motor and sensory skills needed before a child is ready for the more formal aspect of 'learning'. T...

🌻 Donview children, we will see you soon. We look forward to welcoming you back with open arms and hearts when this is all over. 🥰

In the meantime, we hope that all our Donview families and staff stay safe and keep well during these strange and unprecedented times.🌻

🌻With our new “Home” room occupying the old construction room, we set up the construction and loose-parts play in the large front room and, again, we are delighted with how it’s turned out!🌻

29/09/2019

🌻We have transformed our old construction room into our new “Home” Room and the children are absolutely loving it!

A well-thought-out home role-play area is a wonderful resource for young children as it provides them with a familiar environment for them to act out their real-life experiences, which can help them to make sense of their world. We encourage children to look after the resources, therefore, real items are used, such as china teapots, cups and saucers and ornaments. We support them to explore and use these items appropriately and to lay them away once they’re finished with them, building their sense of responsibility and respect. With continuous provision, we will continue to add items for provocation and let the children guide us in the direction of their learning.🌻
