About the project
We are the only daycare on the isle of skye, who provide much needed care for the children in the community, along with a preschool. The nursery was set up 21 years ago by some local parents where they managed with generous grants and funding, to get a built nursery to provide a preschool service and over the years this has extended into daycare. We are now in a postion where the nursery is in much need of a make over, from paint to flooring, furniture, heating and much more. With never ending financial strain we would like to ask you if you would be able to help with this project and provide the children, once again with a clean, stimulating and safe environemnt which we can be proud to continue to provide care for.
Our project- As you can see from the pictures portree nursery is in desperate need of decoration through out all the rooms. We also need to provide the children with new flooring which is comfortable for them to sit and play on, along with carpeted areas for cozy corners, but also for a safe baby environment. With a heating system older than and working like my nan !! we have found this to be expensive and unrealiable to run, and so would look to replace all of the heating with a system that would work much more cost effective and efficent. If the funding will allow us we would also like to replace the kitchen and children’s toilet. This would help us to bring the nursery back into the 20th century and to fullfil the never ending statuary requirements and the needs of the children.
This is one room which has 2 different types of flooring due to extention of the building many years ago.
The woodwork is dated and in need of a sand and varnish to make it look clean again.
As you can see above the flooring is worn and marked.
The walls need to be painted and our display boards replaced.
Our cloak room.
The kitchen is dated and worn! The oven has recently stopped working.
The childrens bathrooms are also dated.
Financial Backers-As a charity run nursery we are unable to offer massive rewards. So we would make sure that we advertise where possible through the nursery website, facebook and also newsletters, dependant on the donation. Making sure that everyone in the area knows who has suppotred us to get the project done. We would also like to show off the finished project through photos on our website and facbook page accesible to individual backers to show the finished project and how theier money has been well spent. For our larger backers we would also advertise in our local paper, along with having a plaque made with their name,which will then be displayed within the nursery. Although the rewards are not financial, or shares etc we would like to think this is the best way in which we can thank the people who believe in the nursery’s project and that their biggest reward is the fact that they donated to such a good cause.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for looking at our project and hope you find it a much needed cause that would bring such rewards to the children in our community that you feel it is worhty of a donation. For all that donate a big thank you from all the staff and children at portree nursery.
