Outdoors and Nature

We love to get outside at Kirkintilloch Nature Kindergarten! We have separate and secure gardens designed and appropriately equipped for each age group. Our gardens are set out to encourage children to explore with the aid of mud kitchens, sensory areas, and garden areas. 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 Walkodile Child Safety Systems and high visibility vests to keep children safe when out on trips away from the nursery.

We are committed to being an environmentally friendly nursery, making changes wherever we can in order to make the world a cleaner place! We are a registered ECO-Nursery and are committed to teach our children about their environment and the effect we have on it in our day to day lives.
