Latest News from Les Enfants
Out and about in the Community
We continue to build connections with local care homes and visit the residents regularly. The Après children visited the Care home at the same time as the therapy ponies which was great excitement for the children and staff. The children had the opportunity to touch the ponies, feed them and use the lead to walk them. When the children came back to the nursery they were full of stories and laughter while telling their friends that the ponies were wearing nappies and shoes.
Another group of children went to the Care home to visit the residents and a Magician was there, the children were amazed by the tricks he was doing, and the group received a model balloon each to take home. The children all had a turn to be the magician’s helper and assist with the tricks throughout the session. Again, they shared great excitement with the friends when they returned. On a more recent visit the children took in our sea life animals and books about sea animals.
Learning is fun!
We have been enjoying interests such as dinosaurs and where they lived, we had fun making caves and dens to hide in. Other interests have been sea life, friendships and pirates where we dressed up as pirates, put up a flag and made our own boat, we also made a map to follow and find buried treasure in the sandpit.
We have had recent trips to Easter Anguston farm, Balmedie Beach, Story Book Glen and the Techfest Festival.

We thank all our Parents and Carers who have continued to support Les Enfants and offer suggestions on how we can continue to improve our service. We are always keen to have feedback and welcome comments at any time.
We continue to add to our experienced team and we recruit a high calibre for the Les Enfants team. To help us achieve high standards we provide additional training and processes to ensure the best care, learning and stimulation for the children. Registration of interest for childcare places is good and we now have a waiting list for some age groups on specific days. There are still places available so please don't delay in registering your interest. We are offering invites to view the nursery by appointment.
You are welcome to come and meet the team, check out the facilities and confirm your child's place at the nursery. You can contact us on 01467 623240 or by by email for a brochure or to enrol your child and secure a place.
We look forward to welcoming the children, parents and families to Les Enfants Nursery.
