‘Incy Wincey Spider climbed up the water spout…. ‘
Mack Tots extended their learning by recreating spiders using a toilet roll tube to paint black shapes. They also enjoyed the texture of spiders ‘webs!’
Great work, Mack Tots!! 🕷️🦦🕷️

What a fabulous December we have had 💚

The children have enjoyed Christmas crafts and themed tuff trays.
We have been collecting for Cash for Kids and the children have been actively involved in choosing gifts for this cause.
This last week has been so special, with Christmas parties, a turkey lunch for all children and staff (complete with hats and table mats made by the children), two nativity performances, a movie afternoon to watch Polar Express, planting with a parent at our Stay & Play, and a visitor in a red suit 🎅
Fantastic memories made and a wonderful way to end this year.

We would like to wish all our families and friends a very merry festive season and our best wishes for 2024 🎄🦦🎄
⭐️ Reminder that we re-open at 8am on Wednesday 3rd January ⭐️

Just sharing some little snippets of Autumn activities. It’s been a great month with lots of learning opportunities for all our babies and children. This season gives us so much and it’s wonderful to see our team celebrating it, and our children enjoying it.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend 🎃🦦🧡

Mini Macks were reading the story ‘How to Grow a Dinosaur’ and extended their learning using natural materials they collected from outside. Along with Mack Tots, they were very excited when the soil arrived for our new outdoor planters! They liked touching it with their hands and spreading it out 🪴🦦💚

Wee Mack just loves nautical themes around the nursery as it reminds him of all his adventures at sea, and this ‘hanging ocean’ made by our Mack Babies team fits the bill perfectly!
It has tiny turtles made from shells in it and makes for a very eye-catching entrance.
Well done Team 🌊🦦🌊

The children are enjoying getting to know these cute otter friends of Wee Mack’s.
Each room has one special friend that they can take home and have lots of fun with; then they can share their adventures with everyone at Wee Mack’s!!
Motto was at the museum today! We hope he had a good time and got some nice photos 🦦💙🦦

Best of luck to all those starting something new today; and welcome to those joining us at Wee Mack’s for the first time ☺️🦦♥️

🧸🧺 Wee Mack’s Teddy Bear Picnic 🧺🧸

We can’t believe that tomorrow will be a week since this fantastic event! Our children (carrying their furry friends) and staff walked to the park singing the ‘bear hunt’ song.
Lots of families joined us there, where we had a sports day. All children took part, as did staff and parents, as there were races for them too! We then had a picnic, said goodbye to some who are moving on from Wee Mack’s for school and other ventures, and ended with some wonderful parachute games which included the furry friends!
It was a brilliant afternoon and the weather was kind to us too!
Thanks to the amazing efforts of all team, children and our lovely families who joined us

The weather has been so changeable recently that our children playing outdoors sometimes need shelter from the sun, and at other times, the rain! So our fabulous maintenance team got themselves to DD Hammocks, who supplied us with the fantastic solution shown below.
Thank you for this great addition to our garden

Mack Babies were having fun in the sun this week! They made music with the pots and pans in the garden, and rolled different coloured and textured balls through the ramps in our water feature.
They then continued colour exploration and sorting with some bright and colourful tuff tray activities 🦦💙🌈

Mack Babies made a display this week for Norway Day. They also made red, white and blue playdough, and took this outside in the sun to play, then had a royal themed tuff tray experience

Mack Babies love physical play!
Here they are doing some obstacle courses and a ‘Bear Hunt’ sensory walk, including squelchy mud, ‘snow’ and sticks to emulate the forest floor.
We’re not scared! 🐻 🦦💙

The children have been enjoying the outdoors this week. They spotted first signs of spring, jumped in puddles, played at the park, sorted and stacked stones and measured and compared their heights in the garden!
Outdoor play has so many benefits for both the children and our team 💚🦦💙

It’s indoor and outdoors; it’s neat and tidy at the start of the day and it gets messier and messier and as the day goes on…. What is it?
Sand and water play, of course!
We have updated our sand and water provision with new trays and equipment.
The sand and water accessories shown here are environmentally friendly as they are made from 100% sugarcane, which is recyclable and renewable. Great for scooping, filling, transporting, learning lots and having fun! As you can see, they have been very popular with our children.
🪣🦦💙

It’s a whole world of imagination at Wee Mack’s!
Block play, small world tuff trays, exploring cardboard boxes and sensory play with bubble wrap… the children love all of these activities and are increasing their understanding of their own abilities, as well as the world around them

It was very exciting this week when Wee Mack’s mud kitchen was ready for play!
Built by our very own Bob the Builder, it has sinks, taps and flowing water as well as the all-important mud!
The children have been having a lot of fun sharing, taking turns, pouring, transferring, ’cooking’ and creating.
What a wonderful addition to our garden!

We really appreciate the care that’s always taken to get our uniforms and logo just right! 💜🦦💙

Thanks to the team new 😊

Giant hollow construction blocks present endless opportunities for building, designing and creating.
Wee Mack’s children yesterday stacked them and combined them with animals to make a small world environment. They used their imaginations to ‘house’ animals and move them around.
The result was too lovely not to share!

Our Mini Macks have been very creative, even taking inspiration from New Year fireworks to make some colourful pictures!
They used toilet roll tubes to create special effects with the paint 🎆🦦💙

⭐️ Indoor winter themed tuff trays ⭐️
We used different materials, colours and textures to create tuff trays with wintery effects! We had some discussions about weather and then extended into the seasons with the addition of woodland animals.
The children later pretended to be ‘baking cakes’ in our sensory tuff tray of flour and shredded paper 🧁🦦💙

What a busy and fun start to the year we have had at Wee Mack’s!
Despite the colder weather, the children have been very happy to wrap up and go outside to the garden; exploring icy tuff trays, doing obstacle courses, transporting objects and playing with their friends! ❄️🦦💙
