Welcome to the Nursery

Wellington School’s Nursery welcomes children from the age of three. Run in partnership with South Ayrshire Council, all places at Wellington Nursery are fully funded.

The Nursery provides a stimulating and dynamic environment where emphasis is placed on the individual. Children receive specialist teaching in a number of subjects and the highly experienced staff ensure that children progress to the next stage of their development as happy, curious, fulfilled and confident learners.

Care Badge

Located in Drumley House (Westfield Road), the Indoor Nursery offers a wide range of educational experiences for children. Meanwhile, the Outdoor Nursery is based in woodland at Doonside (Alloway). As a sector leading facility, the Outdoor Nursery offers a unique experience that no other nursery in the area provides. Here, children safely experience all the wonder of nature while developing an understanding of the environment in which they live.

Through play, children are encouraged to develop the concentration and ability to use language effectively by observing, creating, experimenting, questioning and discussion – all of which is vital for future development.
