All staff have completed training on the tilting digital  Interactive Table, which has now been installed in the all 3-5 year rooms. Designed with youngsters in mind, the tables are the same height as a normal nursery table and built of solid aluminum with a safety glass touchscreen, allowing the children to full explore its programmes at the touch of their fingers.

Mariessa Devlin, co-founding Director of Enchanted Forest Nurseries comments;

‘‘We believe these digital tables offer a unique way for youngsters to learn while having fun. The content  covers the outcomes for the Curriculum for Excellence and combines interactive activities with creativity, learning about numeracy and literacy, the world around us, emotions and responsibility.  In addition, we will also be able to save the children’s work from the tables for their Individual Learning Stories and even better we can provide these direct to the parents by email, enabling them to print from home, which really is an added bonus.’’

However, being a qualified primary teacher, Mariessa is adamant that traditional learning through play and the great outdoors will not be overlooked;

“Whilst the digital tables are already extremely popular with the children, we continue to ensure that more traditional forms of learning through play  are embraced. In addition, we have been reinvesting in various new resources many of which were selected by the children, these are providing further depth to learning which is also being embedded by trips on our Enchanted Forest Mini-Buses to local places of interest.  With all of these exciting developments going on, we really continue to place our nursery at the heart of our local community”
