demo-activities

In our toddler and preschool classrooms we make sure to balance quiet and active times. Young children’s attention spans are shorter and their bodies just want to move. In addition to recess, we make sure to provide music and movement activities for our preschoolers. As I’ve shared in my preschool schedule post, our designated music and movement time is after snack. However, we’ve also used instruments in the gym during indoor recess and at other times in the day when we could see that the children just wanted to move.

The good thing about music and movement activities? You don’t need to be able to play an instrument or have a stunning voice. It can be as easy as popping in a CD and dancing! But there are some other fun and easy ideas, too, and that is what I am sharing today.

If you are having a party for your child, you know that it will be difficult to keep all the children engaged.

The Benefits of Dance for Young Children

With arts provision shrinking in our mainstream schools, more and more parents are looking for quality performing opportunities for their children. Stagecoach has been delivering children’s performing arts provision since 1988 and has seen the development of skills and confidence in thousands of children.
With arts provision shrinking in our mainstream schools, more and more parents are looking for quality performing opportunities for their children. Stagecoach has been delivering children’s performing arts provision since 1988 and has seen the development of skills and confidence in thousands of children. There are the obvious benefits of studying dance; reduced obesity, a fun source of exercise, healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and helping to maintain a balanced lifestyle. There is clinically significant evidence that children who participate actively in the performing arts spend less time sitting in front of a computer screen playing games and therefore are at less of a risk of developing health problems. Children who spend more than two hours a day on screen related pastimes are at a high risk of developing health issues, such as obesity.

The Pool Ball Dance

How To


A party at the pool during summers is quite common, but if you have arranged a pool party for your kid, you should also organise a pool dance game for all the children attending the party.

Dear families,

We are pleased to share with you our exciting plans for the future of our nurseries. Bertram Nursery Group has provided a trusted, caring and quality service to thousands of families over two decades.  That isn’t changing, but we want to grow and develop our services, facilities and, most of all, our teams who make our nurseries and kindergartens such inspiring places for children.

That’s why we’re changing our name to Thrive Childcare and Education, because that’s at the heart of what we’re about – helping our children, staff and communities to thrive. As part of this rebrand, Cove Bay Kindergarten has now become Happitots Nursery Cove Bay.

While changing our company name and the names of some of our nurseries is the next step of our development journey, we’ll still have the same dedicated teams caring for your children.

The Covid-19 pandemic has reinforced our belief that we need to adapt and invest in a constantly changing world to continue providing the service that parents and children need, tailored to the communities we support across Scotland and North West England.

Since our foundation, we have acquired some fantastic groups of nurseries and many high-quality independent nurseries. Now we are uniting them under four Thrive groupings:

  • Happitots nurseries will extend beyond Glasgow and South Lanarkshire to provide a network of affordable, flexible nurseries across Scotland.
  • Holyrood nurseries will extend more widely across our network of affordable nurseries in North West England, recognising parents’ and community needs.
  • Corner House nurseries will now extend from Edinburgh to operate more widely across Scotland, providing an extensive range of exciting, extracurricular activities and large outdoor areas.
  • Nature Kindergartens, our new sub-group, will reflect our vision to develop children’s outdoor learning. We plan to expand our Nature Kindergartens network in Scotland and England because we believe children’s learning is greatly enhanced in natural spaces.
