News and Events at Kindergarten Cottage


Every year we have a number of special nursery events and parties for the children. These include

  • Christmas party with visit from Santa
  • Easter egg hunt at Easter
  • Sports day and BBQ IN August
  • Halloween Fancy dress party
  • We have 1 charity event each year and in the past we have done a sponsored bounce for Children in need and this year we held a fashion show and raffle in aid of Allergy NI which proved to be a great success

We also aim to take each group from toddlers upwards on at least one outing per year. In the past we have visited Belfast Zoo, Happy Town, Play cafe, paddling pool, duck pond, W5, Exploris and a picnic at LondonDerry Park. To name a few.

We keep parents up to date with our quarterly nursery news a sample of which can be downloaded here. Both the Toddler room and pre-school room both have their own newsletter also to keep parents up to date. Each baby on our baby floor has their own personal book which is filled in on a daily basis by staff and discussed when you pick up your child.

We have a new private facebook page for parents and close family of attending children only . Here we post the most up to date news and have pictures from events and craft the children have been working on.

New Menus at the nursery

We believe that mealtimes should be social, happy times where skills can be developed and foods tasted! We have A Cook in the Nursery who prepares and cooks every meal on site, using only the freshest ingredients, including fresh fruit and vegetables! Drink: milk, water or diluted fruit juice, are available throughout the day. Our menus are rotated on a 3 weekly basis.

*****Our local health and safety authority has currently rated our kitchen at 5 stars*****
