Nursery in the Park

A contemporary Print by Emma S Davis RSW PAI
A wonderful opportunity to have your very own little piece of Duchal
We are delighted to offer our Duchal friends and families the opportunity to have your very own print of this beautiful original painting of the nursery by former Duchal parent, Emma Davis.
The original painting was commissioned by Duchal as a retirement gift for the late Mrs Jean McCarthy, treasured Headteacher at the nursery, who touched the lives of so many families.  The original painting was presented to Jean at a family fun day held at Duchal to celebrate her retirement, after 15 years at the nursery, in August 2017.
It was always Jean’s wish that everyone should be able to enjoy this special painting as much as she did, we were therefore delighted when Peter McCarthy, in collaboration with Emma Davis, contacted us to offer everyone the chance to have their special memories of Duchal in print.
It is hoped that the nursery will be able to purchase a new playhouse from the proceeds of the Print sales as it is now past its best and in need of replacement.  We would also like to include a plaque on the new playhouse in memory of Mrs McCarthy.

Welcome back

Duchal Children back at Nursery

It is hard to believe we have not seen most of you since before Christmas and it is wonderful to be able to welcome all our lovely teddies back to Duchal again. We are delighted to note that every single one of them bounced into nursery on Monday morning, obviously thrilled to be back with their friends and teachers and desperate to share all their news. It has been especially exciting to introduce 2 new faces to our group of red teddies. Both have settled in beautifully – so much so, that on one end of session there was a distinct unwillingness on the part of one of them to leave!

We have lots of exciting activities planned for the coming weeks and delighted to have you all back.
