Happitots Nurseries

Providing children with a safe, nurturing, home from home environment where they can learn, play and thrive.

Your Local Happitots Nurseries

Happitots Nurseries are located across Scotland in Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen.  At Happitots we pride ourselves in providing excellence in childcare and early education for children aged from birth to 11 years.  Our nurseries, creche and Out of School Care centres offer a unique range of services and extra-curricular activities to meet individual needs.  

The heart of what we do is providing friendly, safe and supportive environments which put children first every time.  Each nursery is unique and we aim to create spaces which feel like a home from home.   Children learn and develop well in enabling environments with teaching and support from adults, who respond to their individual interests and needs and help them to build their learning over time.

We promote learning through play, invigorating outdoor environments and using natural resources.  We are committed to providing healthy, balanced nutritional meals, supporting children to explore, learn and socialise and delivering every day with passion!

Our Curriculum

Outdoors and Nature

We love to go outside at all Happitots Nurseries!  We provide separate and inviting outside space, all appropriately set up for each age group.  All our outdoor areas provide children with opportunities to get fresh air and have fun in a safe and secure environment. 

The children love playing in our gardens which provide a variety of activities including den building, mud kitchens, water play, digging and planting, and musical play.  As well as access to our fabulous outdoor play areas, children of all ages enjoy regular walks in the local area.  Our youngest children are often seen out in our double buggies enjoying the fresh air, sights and sounds of the local community.

We use high-visibility vests to keep children safe when out on trips away from the nursery.  We believe there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing – so we ask parents to provide their children with appropriate clothing for all types of weather.

We are committed to being environmentally friendly, making changes wherever we can in order to make the world a cleaner place.  We include teaching our children about their environment and the effect we have on it in our day to day lives.
