We are a voluntary sector nursery with charitable status who works in partnership with Glasgow City Council to provide care and education to children aged 0-5 years.  We are regulated and inspected by both The Care Inspectorate and HMIe. 
The local areas we predominantly cover are Arden, Carnwadric, Darnley & Thornliebank.


We aim to inspire and give our young ones an opportunity to shine!  Our ethos is centred on the child and we endeavour to portray a home like environment where children are able to develop necessary, but often overlooked, life skills.  Our environment provides lots of scope for children to explore and investigate through a wide range of learning opportunities. 

Yours sincerely

Wendy & Staff
