You and your child will love our spacious and nurturing Treehouse Early Care and Education Centre. Situated onsite at Robert Gordon University, we offer childcare to university staff, children and the local community. Our experienced and highly skilled staff offer enriching activities to support children’s development from the age of 3 months to 5 years.

Our purpose-built setting has a large Under 2s space that can be split into separate multifunctioning rooms. This allows us to change up the space depending on the interests and developmental stages of the children. Younger babies love learning about the world through sensory activities, discovering new textures, sights and sounds. We use their natural curiosity to improve their gross and fine motor skills as they learn how to interact with the world around them.

The open plan 2-5 year old room has lots of natural light and space to play, discover and investigate. Our educational resources provide a broad range of learning experiences, from exploring loose parts and reading in the cosy book nook, to learning about the world through IT and STEM activities.

Outside, our beautiful Treehouse nursery has four different garden areas depending on the age and stage of children. The Under 2s’ garden provides the younger children with a safe space to explore and learn. Older children have freeflow access out to a large space with lots of unique learning opportunities including a mud kitchen, balance equipment and tricycles.

We also have access to a ‘secret garden’ within the grounds of the nursery. This exciting spot lets children explore the natural world within a safe environment, looking for wildlife and even grow vegetables in the planters.

Treehouse Early Care and Education Centre is conveniently located on Garthdee Road, close to local bus routes and with drop-off spaces for parents who are driving. Our all-inclusive fees help give you less to worry about, as all nutritious meals, snacks, nappies and wipes are included.

Our staff would love to meet you and your child, so book a visit today and we will show you all our nursery has to offer during your own personal tour.

Candy Floss

Candy Floss

Hi, my name is Candy Floss, I joined Bright Horizons in March 2010 as the ‘Super Safety Hero’ to help nursery children stay safe and manage risks. My role as a Health and Safety Super Hero is unique to Bright Horizons and I’m in every nursery, 365 days a year.

Back in 2010, I saw a job advert for a Zebra Super Safety Hero – I was very excited, applied and was invited for an interview with several other zebras. We were interviewed by all the children who then voted on which of us would be their Super Safety Hero. It was hoof biting but I was thrilled when they told me I was the most voted for by the children who all loved me because of my cape and bag. My bag is very special, if something fits inside, it’s a choking hazard. You might be wondering how I got my name. The children in our nurseries chose five names and voted for their favourite. I love it as it’s unique, I mean have you ever heard of a zebra called Candy Floss? Exactly!

Why Bright Horizons

The Bright Horizons passion and enthusiasm for providing high-quality care isn’t just common knowledge within our own business – we’ve also gained some impressive accolades from external sources for excellence as both a childcare provider, and as an employer. We are the only childcare company to have been listed for the last 11 years as one of the country’s top 50 “Great Places to Work” by the Great Place to Work Institute.
