The Albyn School Nurseries


Toddler Nursery (age 2-3), Ante Pre-School (age 3-4) and Pre-School (age 4-5)


Our nurseries form an important part of the School as it is the beginning of the Albyn journey which will take the majority of the children through to Upper 6. With the nurseries located on the grounds of the School, your child will benefit from its sports facilities, libraries and specialist teaching staff who visit the nurseries for weekly lessons. This familiarity with the School and staff eases the transition for your child when progressing into Lower 1.


With emphasis on the importance of play, your child will learn language and literacy skills, develop their first steps towards numeracy and build a strong foundation for future learning. We will also instill habits of good health and wellbeing and provide your child with a calm, stimulating and secure environment in which they can grow in confidence, make friends and most importantly, have fun.


The Albyn School Nurseries are a registered childcare provision with the Care Inspectorate in Scotland. Our staff are trained and experienced in providing a high quality of care and will deliver your child’s early years education based on the guidelines of the ‘Curriculum for Excellence’.


We have term time and all year round places available, fees include snacks and lunches and we are happy to accommodate any dietary requirements. There is a school nurse on site at all times to ensure your child’s health and well-being.
