Our nursery is located in the Lochee area of the city and can be easily accessed via the Kingsway. We have close links with the local community and are surrounded by local amenities such as the library, shops and parks. Find us here.
Playrooms within our nursery are generously proportioned, carefully planned and extensively resourced to create inspiring learning environments.

As a primary teacher, I have been involved in children’s lives for 30 years. I have worked in Africa, so have a blend of cultural experiences and believe strongly in a multi-cultural environment within the nursery. I hold nurture to be the most significant element in the nursery, as emotional intelligence is key to developing children in to confident and content individuals.
“This is one of the best places for children. The staff are lovely and we feel like one big family. They encourage children to play and develop very well. The hygiene is kept at the highest standard. Management are very helpful and lovely. The nursery manager is a lovely person who sorts out everything and nothing is impossible for her.”

We love to get outside here at Clement Park where we are very fortunate to have an extensive outdoor area comprising of four large gardens and a unique secluded woodland area allowing for outdoor play in a natural environment. Our children have opportunities to participate in outdoor play experiences when they wish with our gardens easily accessible to all age groups.
Weather does not limit our opportunities for outdoor learning so we ask parents to provide appropriate clothing so our children are always ready to explore all elements of nature.
