Preparing for Primary School is about providing high quality educational experiences to build your child’s confidence and abilities, this experience is managed by both Kirsty Clark and overseen by the Nursery Manager. As per National guidelines we follow the Curriculum for Excellence, an educational programme that aims to grow successful learners, confidant individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors.
The key is that as a whole Nursery we offer a range of curricular experiences which enable your child to learn, explore and be their best.Each individual child has a tailored approach to help them reach their milestones and we do this using our online programme to record their learning and development. By providing our children with a wide variety of experiences and extra-curricular services we hope to enhance their abilities and allow each to grow with confidence.
