These foods are the biggest choking hazards for young children - Rollercoaster Choking is probably every parents biggest fear when their young child is eating. And while you can literally choke on anything (like your morning cuppa) there are certain foods that pose a greater risk.


Due to the bad weather Little Smarties will be closed Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd. Keep safe and warm.


Hi everyone Little Smarties preschool will reopen on the 4th of September.


What a day we had at Little Smarties today, Stephen and Rochelle from Ballinasloe Cycling club ran a little cycling program for the children and what fun they had. Many thanks to Rochelle and Stephen for comming and teaching us all about bike safety and thanks to Ballinasloe cycling club as well.


Look who came to school today. Philip brought his two pet lambs for everyone to see. They were Matilda and Lucy. The children took turns to feed them.


Love What Matters

"Chickenpox is going round again can I please remind people NOT to give your children nurofen/ibuprofen. 4 different doctors from our local (out of hours) prescribed it for Lewis as we couldn't get his temp down. This type of medicine is an anti inflammatory, it reacts with chicken pox making them go deeper into the skin tissue. It was only wen we took Lewis to Alderhey because the doctors from our hospital kept sending him home saying it was 'just chicken pox' we found this out. He ended up with septicaemia and was admitted straight to Alderhey as soon as we arrived there.

Only because we persevered and took Lewis to a children's hospital off our own back was he ok. This could have ended up so much worse if it wasn't for those doctors at Alderhey and their advice, care and knowledge.

Only use CALPOL for their temps.

It does actually state on the nurofen website not to take this medicine with chickenpox. (We discovered this after it happened) But when our doctors prescribe it, who are we to question it??"
