Children enjoy a wide range of facilities including our bright and open indoor space, our own nursery garden and a courtyard for outdoor play, as well as having access to other facilities within the school. The outdoor nursery at Doonside is based at our playing fields and the school minibus enables us to make the most of our local environment including the beautiful woods and beaches nearby.
Children at Wellington Nursery lead their learning and we focus on their interests. A wide variety of free play options are on offer, including role play, painting and artwork, story corner, building and construction, mud kitchens and much more. Everything is carefully structured to lead to positive Numeracy, Literacy and Health and Wellbeing outcomes and to encourage independence and confidence. We are proud to follow the Curriculum for Excellence, which aims to develop confident children with a thirst for learning. Annual nativities and events such as the popular Thistle Tea for parents and grandparents build the confidence of our pupils, as well as allowing parents to come in and have a taste of life in the Nursery.
