Children’s progress at all stages is recorded using ‘learning stories’ which grow with them throughout their time at Scallywags. This profile tells the story of how each individual child develops and celebrates their efforts and achievements. Parents are encouraged to contribute to their child’s profile.

Electronic Communication

Scallywags has a facebook page where notice of important events are placed along with reminders and news articles. Parents and staff are encouraged to log on to this page.

We would also appreciate having an email contact address for each family so that we can email the calendar of events and invoices to you in our bid to become a paperless nursery in the areas that we are able.

Notice boards are placed in each unit where you will find your current menu and the planning of activites for the unit.

Parent’s evenings are held twice each year. You are always welcome to make a mutually convenient appointment at any other time if you have something that you wish to discuss.

A calendar of events is sent out monthly so that you can see any special dates there may be for the coming month and so that we can inform you of any house-keeping points that you need to know about. On the back of the calendar you will find a variety of interesting topics or a menu for you to try at home.

A nativity play is performed by the pre-school children at Christmas. The children take great pride in the work that they do to learn this and have fun throughout the whole experience. Our Music teacher, Mary Stranex, guides the staff and children through the nativity and the children are delighted when you come and watch.

A Fun Day is held every year to celebrate our children that are leaving for school and to allow you to get to know your children’s friends and their parents better. Please bring a friend along too.
