Corona virus

As is the case for many businesses, Carriagehill Nursery is currently closed for normal business as a result of the ongoing Corona virus situation. 

We are open only at limited capacity, to care for the children of our key workers.

Thank you for your understanding at this time. We look forward to opening to full capacity and welcoming you to Carriagehill as soon as is safely possible. 

Our Curriculum

Our nursery follows the national guidance of Pre-birth to Three for our younger children, which promotes the principals of Rights of the Child, Responsive care, Relationships and Respect.

Our 3-5 curriculum meets local and national guidance through Curriculum for Excellence. This is the curriculum followed by the vast majority of Scottish pre-schools, primary schools and secondary schools. It is structured under 8 curricular areas, providing a wide and varied range of learning opportunities and activities: Expressive arts, Health and wellbeing, Languages, Mathematics, Religious and Moral Education, Sciences, Social Studies and Technologies. Our floor books reflect this range of exciting activities; you are welcome to view these at any time. A fully qualified teacher supports staff in the delivery of Curriculum for Excellence.

Outdoor Learning

The value of extending children’s learning through the outdoors in widely recognised and we promote this in a variety of ways. All playrooms have direct access to the outdoors, these areas are developed to provide a range of learning opportunities such as counting activities, writing opportunities, outdoor music making.

Staffing

All of our staff are fully qualified or working towards a qualification and are vetted via references, medical references, Disclosure Scotland, PVG Record, Scottish Social Services Council checks.

 

Our staff are carefully selected to ensure they share our commitment to the well-being and development of children. We have a programme of training including Child Protection, Food Hygiene and First Aid.

Settling

Our Settling In procedure is individual to each child. Short introductory visits are offered prior to your child starting at nursery, the time and length of these visits can be varied to suit the needs of your child. You will be asked to complete an About me booklet, which helps inform staff about your child and their likes and dislikes.

 

Our staff are very experienced in settling new children please ask if you have any questions or concerns.

Partnership

The nursery works in partnership with Renfrewshire Council to provide preschool education for children age 3-5 years. This allows children to claim free hours at nursery, a substantial saving for parents.

Menu

The nursery provides breakfast, lunch and snacks. We provide a wide range of fruit and vegetables, which we encourage all children to try. We have a nursery cook, who prepares a fresh and tasty lunch every day. These meals are planned in line with the National Guidance for Early Years document, produced by the Scottish Executive.

 

We make every effort to accommodate requests for vegetarian and free-from foods (in the case of allergies).
