The children at ABC Nursery have recently added lots of new poo bag dispensers around Aberfeldy to hopefully encourage people to use them and help tackle issues with dog poo.

We regularly refill the dispensers which is great, but our supplies are now running really low.

We would really appreciate any donations of poo bags for the children to keep topping up the dispensers if possible.

Many thanks

Rhyme Time... stories and songs with instruments, props, cuddlies and puppets. Great fun and a super way to develop language skills in our wee ones. x

Spring is well and truly in the air and we have been fascinated by flowers and have been using them in a variety of ways throughout the children's nursery experiences to help them to learn about different kinds, their parts and how we can help them grow.

We like to use familiar household items to help the children to learn and our ABC phone book is a great way for the children to learn to identify their numerals.

We have been loving our outdoor adventures in the beautiful forests and fields around Aberfeldy. It is such fun to explore and learn with our friends in natural surroundings.

We've been learning about shapes in all sorts of different ways at ABC

Oooo Argh!
The ABC pirates have been out in force making their own 'X' marks the spot Maps to look for treasure when out and about.
We all know children will always find treasure. From leaves or stones, it is all precious to them!

The children really enjoy listening to stories but to make them come alive and help the children to understand the characters and the plot more, it is always fun to explore them in different ways by acting them out using props, costumes, puppets or small world play.
Can you match the story to the play...
Here we have:
The two little pigs
Little Red Riding Hood
Giraffes Can't dance

The children created their own Water Slides which have required great team work between the children to take turns to pour and collect the water.

Following a successful minibeast hunt we decided to make a wormery and a bug hotel. We've been exploring different types of minibeasts more through our small world play and using our drawing and cutting skills to make our own crafty bugs.

Jenni is off just now to help on the farm with lambing. She was in Aberfeldy so stopped off to say hello with two very special surprises for the children.
The children loved meeting 'Lamby' and Jess, her new puppy. They were very gently when stroking them and really enjoyed helping to feed Lamby some milk. We found out a bit about what Jenni has been busy doing on the farm and about how they are looking after the new lambs.
Thanks for a special visit Jenni x

We love a bit of messy play at ABC and our staff are so creative in offering it in such different and interesting ways to invite the children in to explore and play and most importantly have fun!

Down at the ABC farm....we have been learning about where our food comes from through our small world farm, planting our own veg and running our farm shop.
The children have been working hard at their pretend play.

A little bit of this and a little bit of that!
Our little master chefs have been cooking up a storm of mud pies and leaf soup. They get creative with anything at their fingertips.

The children have loved playing with the boats and water this week and have been exploring the idea of floating and sinking.

At outdoor learning we used maps to help us on our treasure hunt around the park to find the ingredients we needed to make our own bread. We then mixed our dough and cooked it over the fire for snack. So much delicious fun.

Happy Easter
We've been enjoying Easter themed crafts this week as well as hunting for eggs in the garden.

02/04/2021

Easter egg hunters might get lucky by the putting green this Easter Sunday!

A big thank you to the lovely volunteers for the Easter treats πŸ₯š 😊 πŸ₯š

We plan to open the Putting Green and welcome everyone back, on Saturday 1st May. We are busy tidying up the gardens, painting benches and picnic tables, and sprucing up the kiosk.
Although we aren’t open for Easter any young egg hunters out for a walk this Sunday late morning/early afternoon, may like to have a look around the Putting Green to see if any eggs have been left 🐣.
See you all again very soon.
The Putting Green Team

Bricks, pipes, rollers, boxes, stones....the list goes on but our busy little builders can turn just about anything into a castle, road, house, slide or tower with their big imaginations!

The children are really enjoying their Tennis Tots sessions with their coach Laura!

We've loved spotting signs of Spring when we've been out for walks and have taken the opportunity to do some observational drawing and painting of some daffodils and other flowers.

Our little painters love to get inventive with how they create their pictures and love to watch how they can move the paint or mix the colours. Using their hands and feet makes for a really great sensory experience too!

Our green fingered gardeners have been planting their flower and vegetable seeds and looking after and watering them in our new greenhouse. We're excited to see the shoots appear and check on them daily to see if there have been any changes.

Over the past month since we reopened we've experienced all weathers from snow and frost to wind, rain and sun. The children and staff have embraced and enjoyed it all!

The children have been exploring, climbing, sliding, den building, enjoying picnics and fires, decorating stones, making nature mobiles, tying knots, splashing in puddles and making wormeries.

We had a great outdoors staff meeting tonight focusing on refreshing our Emergency First Aid for children and babies. It was delivered voluntarily and expertly by one of our wonderful Mummy's who is also a local midwife, Sara! Thank you so much Sara for giving us your time and expertise. We all feel much more confident in dealing with an emergency....hopefully we won't have to though!
