Today weโ€™re talking about GRAPES! ๐Ÿ‡

Itโ€™s a well known fact that whole grapes are a dangerous choking hazard for babies, toddlers and young children!

The size and shape of grapes means that they can completely plug a child's airway. The tight seal produced by the grape's smooth surface makes them difficult to dislodge with standard first aid techniques.

Young children are particularly vulnerable to choking on a grape because:
โ€ข They don't have a full set of teeth and are still learning to chew properly.
โ€ข Their swallow reflex is still developing.
โ€ข Their airway is very small.

This handy image shows just how to slice them so that they are safe to eat - slice in half lengthways and ideally into quarters. NEVER in half widthways!

Same goes for sausages, olives, cherry tomatoes and large blueberries. Itโ€™s always better to be safe than sorry!

Drop Off Point for Falkland Residents

***FIFE WOMENโ€™S AID CHRISTMAS APPEAL***

I always think Christmas is a good time to
count our blessings especially during times
like these. This is the 10th year
that Smart Cookies will be supporting Fife Womenโ€™s Aid by supplying gifts for children to give to their mums, as well as gifts for the children themselves. A tub will be in nursery outer hall from Monday 30th Nov. with the 13thDec being the last day to donate.

Since this does not involve entering the main nursery building, if any local residents would like to drop off any donations, you are very welcome to do it here.

If you would like to donate items, they must be new and unwrapped so the person distributing them can judge which gift suits best.

Itโ€™s also an ideal way to pass on new unwanted gifts.

These donations have been really appreciated
in past years.

(This year we will be using black bags to minimise contact with items from different households)

Best if possible (because of social distancing) to avoid our busiest times for parents. 8 to 8.30, 12.45 to 1.15, 5.15 to 5.30. The outer hall is generally accessible Mon to Thurs up to 7.30 pm as our cleaners are in nursery.

Best wishes to all. Irene and Ross x x

2 Job Vacancies at Smart Cookies Nursery Falkland.

Apprentice Nursery Practitioner
Qualified Nursery Practitioner(mornings)

I am looking for an apprentice preferably 19 or over as i believe it is better for school leavers to do level 5/6 courses before this level 7 apprenticeship. This is on Indeed but has been paused for an unknown reason!!

Will also be advertising for a qualified Practitioner mornings only initially as we have double the number of children in the morning than in the afternoon.

Thanks. Irene.

๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€GREAT TO BE OPEN AGAIN!!
After lots of preparation, it was all worthwhile today!!
Our first โ€˜smart cookieโ€™was up the path, in the door and halfway up the stairs excitedly telling us about his trip to the beach before we could even have a word with his dad to see if there had been any important changes in the past 16 weeks!!
The children really cheered us all up and
Life seemed far more normal again. It was lovely to catch up with our parents and to welcome some of our new children.

Can arrange show rounds evenings and weekends for anyone interested.
