Kiddiwinks Nursery in Fraserburgh has received a special award in recognition of their efforts to make the pre-school centre more eco-friendly.

The nursery - which is based on the town’s Robertson Road - picked up its Eco Schools Green Flag Award recently.

To achieve the highest award, the children took part in various environmental projects at the centre.

The inspector from Eco Schools Scotland, Anne Black, visited the nursery and looked at all the documented information of comprehensive eco plans and audits which had been integrated into the daily routines of the nursery.

Ms Black spoke with the nursery parents, community workers who have been involved in the project and the enthusiastic children.

The inspector spoke highly of the nursery’s outdoor play area which has had a very positive impact on the curriculum - especially as the nursery purchased an outdoor classroom for the children to enjoy in all weathers.

Kiddiwinks Manager Anne Milne would like to thank the community who helped the nursery achieve their award, including the parents and the children for their hard work and support over the years.

In other news, Kiddiwinks Nursery received the Game On Scotland Commonwealth Games Award earlier this year for participating in events during the Commonwealth Games.

They were commended on their achievement by being awarded a wall plaque and a certificate for their involvement which again involved the local community, parents and children.

Kiddiwinks Nursery has been established 16 years and provides childcare for children from birth to five years of age.

Kiddiwinks expanded in 2012 to provide more space for special adapted rooms for different age ranges, a gym room, dining room, sleep room and creative area for dance, art and music lessons.
