First Class Day Nursery and Preschool is open Monday to Friday from 07:30 to 18:00, for children aged 3 months to 5 years.
We offer a warm, welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery, and we provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients prepared by our own chef. We're also part of the James Hutton Institute, and were involved in planting a wildflower garden to help bring back the bees.

I have been working with Bright Horizons Family Solutions since September 2016 as Nursery Manager of First Class.
I have been working in the Childcare Sector since 1999 when I gained my HNC Childcare and Education qualification. Since then I worked in my first setting for 8 Years where I was promoted to supervisor then Deputy Manager.
I moved to Aberdeen in 2010 where I took on a Managers role in a private nursery and completed my SVQ 4 Childcare Learning and Development qualification. At the present time I am half way through my BA Childhood Practice Degree.
My name is Joseph Picker, and I have been working in childcare since 2009. I started working in an English preschool and completed my NVQ 2 there. I then moved to Aberdeen in 2012 and joined the team of First Class in August of that year, where I started working with children aged under two.
During my time in First Class I have completed my SVQ 3, transitioned to the over twos room and I am currently embarking on my degree in Child Practice.
