Little Einsteins Paediatric First Aid

Posted by | Glasgow Pollokshields | No Comments

Staff at Little Einstein’s were in at the weekend to complete a First Aid Training Course. This was a great opportunity for new staff to complete their first training session and for other staff to refresh their training. For all staff it was greatly beneficial and a variety of topics were covered;

– The role of a First Aider,
– Looking out for signs and symptoms for various minor injuries and how to treat them,
– Practicing CPR on babies, children and adults,
– Bandaging for different types of injuries
– Dealing with choking

The staff and company as a whole are always looking for training that will help them in their role and ensure the highest safety for our children within the nursery.

Red Nose Day and Mothers Day Tea at Nithsdale Nursery

Posted by | Glasgow Pollokshields | No Comments

Nithsdale Nursery organized lots of fun activities to raise cash for Red Nose Day. The staff brought in their baby pictures for the “Guess the Baby” competition which was won by Sean’s mum who correctly identified each one. Well Done Fiona!!

The raffle was won by Jessica with the prize – a delicious Malteaser cake made by Natasha’s mum. The 3 – 5’s room helped sell all the cakes and baking brought in by the parents.

All rooms carried out different activities on the day – wearing red clothes, crazy hairstyles etc as well as taking part in different sponsored activities. The 1 – 2’s and 2 – 3’s had a sponsored danceathon and the 3 – 5’s had a sponsored football match.

The monies raised are still coming in but so far the nursery has raised over £1000 – a massive amount! Well done and thanks to everyone who took part or donated for such a great cause.

Zoe Morris was the clear winner of Nithsdale Nursery’s “Employee of the Year” award for 2016.

More than half of the votes, which were submitted by parents of the children who attend the nursery, were for Zoe. Some of the comments below make it clear why they thought Zoe should be Employee of the Year:-

  • Zoe always provided the best care for my wee man, he loves her to bits. When I ask him who his favourite lady is he says “Zoe” (even above mum!!).
  • Because she’s always very helpful, loving and supportive.
  • For being a loving and caring key worker who is lots of fun.
  • Lovely with the children, well loved! Always polite, professional and cheerful in her job.

Well Done Zoe!! and along with the acknowledgement of her commitment, Zoe will receive an extra weeks annual leave during 2017.

Nithsdale Nursery Ladies Get Muddy For Charity

Posted by | Glasgow Pollokshields | No Comments

Some of the staff at Nithsdale Nursery now understand what the attraction is between children and mud!

Manager, Tanya says “On Saturday 17th September a team of us took part in a pretty mud run at Bellahouston to raise money for Cancer Research. We had an absolute ball and raised funds for a good cause. Sponsors are still coming in but we will update with a final figure soon.”

Well done ladies and I hope the mud washes out of these clothes!!
