The Pollokshields nursery provides day-care facilities for children from birth to 5 years. We aim to be a resource for families, providing a nurturing environment for young children providing a high standard of care and education. We continually strive towards being an environment which provides support, time and space to children as their confidence, self-esteem and enjoyment of life develops. We aim to be a home from home where all are valued, respected and supported.

We expect parents to be our active partners in meeting their children’s needs. Parents are child’s first teacher, you know your child best of all and we need your help to understand their needs and to identify how best to help them. You are always welcome to come into the nursery at any time to see for yourself how your child is progressing. We will also provide you with regular information on what they are doing and how you can ensure they gain the most from this experience.
