Despite the very cold temperatures of recent days our children were thrilled to spot some positive signs of spring in our woods this week! The beautiful sunshine emphasised the different shades of green starting to appear all around.

Healthy Tots Lunches
We are currently piloting lunches from a new provider “Healthy Tots”. The current menu can be found here. We welcome feedback on the new lunches as this will help us to evaluate the service when compared to the lunches provided by Stirling Council. Our children are already helping to record their likes and dislikes as well as monitoring the amount of food waste generated.

Our children were very excited to open a special envelope today containing a Bronze Award certificate for developing a communication friendly environment in our playroom. We gave ourselves a well deserved clap to celebrate our hard work before Sharon, our Speech and Language link therapist, formally presented the certificate to Lynda, our communication champion, in recognition of her hard work in developing our environment for the benefit of our children. Well done everyone 👏🏻
