BBC Children in Need – Money raised

What a wonderful evening on the 13th December 2014 celebrating everyone’s hard work and 2014 successes at our annual Bertram Gala Awards. Thank you so much to Head Office for their organisation of the event. We took the opportunity with all our nurseries being represented to announce the definitive total raised for this year’s BBC Children In Need Appeal… Across our 36 nurseries children, parents and staff raised a staggering £8,843.06 & our Chief Executive, Graeme Scott, has kindly matched this – so a total of £17,686.12!

Thank you to everyone for all their support and generosity.

Outdoor Learning

We have recently been developing the outdoor spaces within our purpose built setting. We use natural resources throughout the nursery and hope to bring an element of outdoor education to all that we do. Each playroom has access to its own outdoor area and this helps us to ensure children have a wide variety of experiences at Happitots.

NHS Discount

At Happitots, we offer a discount to parents and carers who work for Police Scotland and the NHS. We understand that working families find it difficult to juggle their finances for childcare and we hope that this discount will help you in your return to work. We offer a safe and secure environment for children from just 6 weeks old and you can be assured that they will be well looked after in our purpose built baby room right up to our bright and spacious pre-school room.

E-Learning Journals

Our recently added E-Learning Journals allow you, as parents, to see your child’s observation at nursery at the click of a button. Whether you are out shopping, or sitting at your desk at work, you can securely login to your child’s Learning Journal and see just what they are getting up to while they are in our nursery. You will be notified when a new observation is uploaded and can let us know what you think over this innovative feedback system.
