Thistle Childcare’s Christmas! Whoop's-A-Daisy!!

Our award winning Thistle Childcare Centre has a busy, bustling and exciting Christmas calendar ahead! With rehearsals going well for the children’s “Whoops a Daisy Angel!” play, and plans underway for the children’s super end of year celebration and graduation at Gladigators Soft Play Centre! This is a busy Christmas for the nursery!

Children at our Thistle Childcare Service (Thistle) are set to benefit from a wonderful show of support from the local community in Easterhouse, this Christmas.

Children at the nursery have told us how that they want to grow their selection of favourite imaginative play toys in the nursery. Top of the children’s list were “Small World” farmyard animals, dolls house; and magnetic construction toys! More toys, means more fundraising at Thistle!

Local businesses, organisations, parents, families and staff have all banded together collecting donations, to offer a range of prizes for the nursery’s Christmas Prize Draw! The generosity shown to the children at Thistle has been outstanding, and a huge thank you goes to:

  • ·         The Big Windae, Shandwick Shopping Centre

  • ·         The Meat Market, Shandwick Shopping Centre

  • ·         Gentle Touch Hair & Beauty Salon, Easterhouse

  • ·         The Beauty Lounge, Shandwick Shopping Centre

  • ·         Wagamama’s, Glasgow Fort

  • ·         Nando’s, Glasgow Fort

Thistle Childcare Centre is a warm, welcoming, safe, fun and exciting childcare centre for children and families. Our services are focussed on providing a nurturing environment for children and their families.

A flexible and high quality early learning and childcare service, Thistle has a dedicated one-to-one family support and wellbeing service, which is open to any parents and carers who find that they need some additional support at times when raising a young family can be very challenging.

A huge thank you goes out to the amazing staff and volunteers at Glasgow North East Foodbank who have donated supplies of nappies, food and milk formula to Thistle. This support will be available to any family who may need some extra help over the Christmas period.  

If you would like to help the children raise funds to help them explore creative and imaginative worlds of play you can donate online by visiting our #JustGiving page!
