Are you looking for the right nursery for your child? Make sure you pay a visit to the High School of Dundee Nursery at Mayfield on Arbroath Road.
The friendly and welcoming, purpose-built nursery has a few places left for August 2018 entry and it’s open all summer so you can visit during the holidays to see if it’s the right place for your wee one to start their education.
Nursery manager Sarah Tosh, who is also an experienced primary teacher, explained: “A young child’s brain develops more rapidly up to the age of five than it ever will again. It is therefore vitally important that care and education in those early years is of the highest standard.
“Our nursery space, both indoors and out, provides the very best play-based learning opportunities for each child whilst at the same time being nurturing, comfortable, safe and fun. Children at the nursery learn across a broad curriculum with staff gently extending that learning at every opportunity through play and fun activities.
“The children will see this as simply playing and having fun. But they are working to develop the skills which will support their future learning without even realising it.”
The nursery is located alongside the school’s sports facilities at Mayfield on Arbroath Road and has been created as a purposeful, modern environment to allow children to develop and learn. The location allows access to the school’s playing fields, sports halls and wider grounds, so pupils get the chance to learn outside as well as within the bright, open-plan interior.
It’s open 50 weeks of the year and there’s a range of flexible sessions available for children, including morning, afternoon, school day and all day options (available year round or term time).
And the nursery has performed well since opening its doors, receiving a positive report after its first official inspection by the Care Inspectorate in 2015.
In the report, inspectors gave ratings of ‘very good’ for each of the four areas under review: the quality of care and support; the quality of environment; the quality of staffing; and the quality of management and leadership.
The Nursey is open to all and Early Years funding towards places is available.
Individual tours can be arranged at most times during term-time and the nursery is open all summer. If you would like to arrange an individual tour, please contact Alex McGrory on 01382 202921 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
