Our Baby Room

Your little one will enjoy our extensive sensory experiences including sand and water play, our home corner and reading area. Our priority is to follow your child's individual routines from home.

Our Infant Room

Our large and exciting messy play areas include crafting, chalking, painting, play doh, construction and loose parts play as well as a quiet corner for books and puzzles.

We will prepare your child for the transition to school with our Ready for School Programme which encompasses all Growing Enhancements. Our qualified preschool teacher helps your child to practice these skills as well as important life skills such as serving themselves at mealtimes, tying shoelaces and communicating effectively.

Explore Outdoors

Your child will find lots to discover in our garden, from singing songs in our 'campfire' area, to developing their coordination and balance by throwing balls, hula-hooping and navigating the balance stepping stones.


Hot meals and snacks are provided along with nappies, wipes and suncream, so there's less for you to pack on those busy mornings.

Located in the West End of Aberdeen, we are conveniently close to all major bus routes.
