Woodlands Nursery is a brand new building specifically designed for childcare and nursery activities. It offers a secure, friendly environment for children introducing fun, activity, learning and sociability. We opened on the 16th of August 2011 after successfully registering with The Care Inspectorate (Formerly Care Commission). Children will be welcomed and valued for who they are as individuals; they will be supported and nurtured to promote active play and socialisation.
The aim of Woodlands Nursery is to provide a professional and well run establishment whereby parents and carers feel fully confident in leaving their most precious possessions in the knowledge that their child will be cared for as well and as carefully as they are at home.
Celtic Cross Nursery
Located in a fabulous building in the beautiful town of Banchory, Celtic Cross Nursery has ample parking for drop off and pick up and can provide storage space for buggies, bikes and trikes.
Playrooms & Garden
Inside the nursery is divided into four dedicated departments for the Ducklings: 0-18 months, Robins: 18 months – 3 years, Puffins: 3-4 years and Owls: 4-5 years. Each department is carefully designed and has a varied and plentiful range of resources and equipment. There are substantial gardens offering the opportunity for outdoor learning across all areas of the curriculum.
Early Years Care & Education
Children attending the nursery are cared for by a team of caring and committed childcare practitioners with a range of skills, qualifications and experience. Staff value each child as an individual and plan learning opportunities to enable them to grow and flourish. There is a genuine sense of partnership between the staff team and the children and families using the nursery.
