Forest Kindergarten at lauriston castle


In This Issue

We are developing our outdoor area with the help of the children. Please let us know if you can help.

We are also planning on using the local area to develop our learning. Again, we will be looking for parent volunteers to come on trips to the beach, Almond Walkway and on local walks.

Please ensure that your child has a named, warm jacket. Hat and gloves would be great.

A Wild Wednesday update letter will be issued soon.


We are encouraging the children to be independent with their shoes, coats, toileting and looking after their belongings.

Please support us at home and ensure that everything is named.

Wedding Bells Miss Warrender is getting married on 18th November and will become Mrs Stewart. I am sure you join me in wishing her a lovely day and a fabulous future.
