Song & Dance Factory
We love visits from the Song & Dance Factory! Our children develop their creativity, confidence and movement skills through these fun and energetic classes.
Hola! Our pre-school children are given the opportunity to explore another language through weekly Spanish lessons.
We help children become confident little swimmers with regular lessons at the local pool.
We are lucky to have our own Nursery Teacher who work closely with our staff to promote positive learning experiences for our children.
Our nursery enjoys great ties with our local community and we are often out and about visiting local sights and getting involved in events.
Held in Muir Memorial Church, we celebrate the children’s transition with a special graduation ceremony and a family tea party afterwards.
In recognition that education begins in the home, we are fully committed to a partnership approach with parents. Parents are kept up to date with monthly newsletters, parent focus groups and parent’s evenings twice a year. Parents are also able to keep up to date with activities going on in the nursery by following our social media accounts; Garrowhill Facebook, Garrowhill Twitter and Happitots Instagram.
E Learning Journals
E-Learning Journals allow you to see your child’s activities at nursery with the click of a button. Staff upload images and notes about your child's participation in activities at nursery for you to access wherever you are. Our nursery tablets offer exciting and stimulating learning experiences tailored to challenge and engage little ones.
Eco Schools is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world and is designed to encourage action on sustainable development education issues. Our children love getting involved in their Eco Schools projects and learning about how to help protect the environment.
Settling in Sessions
Our nursery offers settling in sessions. Parents can bring their child for a couple of hours first, gradually introducing the child to a new environment. Settling in sessions are aimed at helping your child to adapt to their new surroundings and becoming more familiar with the staff and other children.
Our nursery encourages children to celebrate festivals throughout the year. This is one of the best ways for children to learn about different religions and cultures by celebrating various world religious festivals, food tasting from different countries, and dressing up in the national dress of their friends.
Taking part in fundraising activities helps children learn about others that are less fortunate than themselves and understand how to help. Our fundraising events are good fun and are a great way to bring families and communities together.
We celebrate Christmas by putting on a wonderful Christmas show for friends and family each year. There’s always much excitement in preparing for the show as we learn songs and organise our costumes
