Welcome to Kelvinside Kindergarten where we provide stimulating and inspiring childcare for children from birth to 5 years.
Our nursery is housed in a unique, homely property in the heart of Glasgow. We are registered to provide care and education for just 48 children at any one time, ensuring that we provide a cozy family-feel for children in our care.
Our nursery has four playrooms designed to meet the needs of different stages of dependent. Each room is carefully planned and resourced to promote creativity and curiosity, and we encourage child-led learning at every opportunity. We also have our own secure outdoor area with space for children to enjoy fresh air while they learn and play.
At Kelvinside Kindergarten we are lucky to have a fantastic team of experienced, trained and hard-working staff, some of whom have been working at our nursery for over 11 years! We have a low staff turnover which helps us to provide continuity for our nursery children, and we enjoy great staff and parent relationships.
We understand that settling into nursery can be difficult for some children, so we help by offering special home visits before your child begins at nursery, familiarising your little one with our lovely staff and learning about your child’s needs and interests before their first day. We also gift children a special Nurture Bear to take to both nursery and home, bridging the gap between the familiar and unfamiliar whilst settling in.
Please contact us to arrange a visit to our nursery, we’d love to hear from you!
