Nursery Enrolment

Just a reminder that next week ( Monday 13th- Friday 17th February)  is enrolment week for children eligible for a nursery place during the school session 2017/18.

All the information you require is in the link below. One important change to note is that if your child is already enrolled as a nursery (N4) pupil this year, you do not have to enrol them for for a place at nursery for the next school year.  Please just confirm with Mrs Bell or Mrs Mackay that your child will continue in nursery next year.

Nursery Inspection

The nursery was inspected by the Care Inspectorate in November.  This was an unannounced inspection. Quality of Care and Support was graded, as well as Quality of Environment.   The Inspector was very happy with the service being delivered at our nursery and no further requirements or recommendations need to be met.

The full report can be accessed here and  also can be accessed on the Early Years Blog.

Care Inspectorate Report 2016

I would like to thank the Early Years Team for their continued hard work and devotion, which makes the nursery the happy place that it is.
