At Corner House Nursery Perth we aim to nurture, care for and inspire each and every child in our care whilst recognising and celebrating each child’s individuality. We are passionate about delivering high-quality early learning and childcare and strongly believe in active learning, learning through play and hands-on experiences of exploring, investigating, creating and experimenting.
This concept is at the core of our ethos here at Corner House Nursery Perth. Within each of our three rooms we offer a warm, welcoming and enabling environment. We’ve recently, after discussions and input from our children, parents and practitioners have changed our 3 rooms names. For our babies its the Blossom Room, Toddlers is now the Willow room and our Preschoolers is now The Oak Room! These rooms do belong to our families and children and their connections to these spaces.
Each child is nurtured and supported in their journey to becoming happy, confident, independent learners, reaching their full potential in all aspects of growth and development. The nursery space is carefully planned to provide a wide range of play and learning experiences and opportunities to stimulate inquisitive little minds.
We will guide you through every step of your childcare journey and help you discover everything you need to know about our nursery. Come and join our family across the UK. If you have any questions or enquiries, please feel free to contact us using the contact details at the foot of this page. Alternatively, you can complete our online enquiry form also located below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
I feel our daughter has a great learning experience at Paint Pots (now Corner House Nursery Perth) Nursery. She is always very happy to go and sometimes even looks sad to be leaving! Visits to the local nursing home are something she loves as well as doing French lessons which she looks forward to. We have watched her become a confident little girl and it is our belief [Corner House Nursery Perth] has had a huge part in this. She loves talking about her current topic and singing all the new songs she’s learnt. We think it’s great that they are taught so much about caring for the environment and learning about recycling and growing fruit, veg and plants. All the staff are lovely and all seem to genuinely care for and have an interest in the children in their care. Highly recommended!
In our outdoor play area, there are opportunities for every child to be whatever they want to be. Any time, any day. We don’t keep our children indoors just because of the weather. Wrapped up warm or sun-screened, we’re always ready for fun outside.
Here at Corner House Perth, we have our 0-2 children out in the fresh air in all weathers and offer our 3-5’s free flow between indoors and outdoors. We feel these opportunities open up the chance for our growing children to make their own decisions about how and where they spend their days – another life skill that will stay with them always.
When we’re not out walking, we’ve created a space that lets our children enjoy the moment. Whether they want to plant, build, explore, or just make a great big splash, they’ll find the opportunity here. They won’t know it, but while they’re having a brilliant time, our children are discovering life skills. As well as this, they’ll make choices about what they do and how they do it. Learning to care about their environment will be important for them as well as enjoying the delights of working alone and with friends on a common cause. We always have staff on hand to help, teach and protect our youngsters as they play in our outside areas.

Our nursery encourages children to celebrate a wide range of festivals and celebrations throughout the year. We always encourage our little one’s families to share their backgrounds too! This is one of the best ways for children to learn about different religions and cultures by celebrating various world religious festivals, food tasting from different countries and dressing up in the national dress of their friends.
Every day at our nursery we understand the importance of promoting language and communication. Through your child’s daily interactions with other children and our practitioners, we seek to encourage communication and identify speech and language difficulties and supporting your little one in their development journey. With our calm, relaxed lunch experience, Our trained practitioners understand and expand the communication developments that take place during this time.
Our nurseries provide an extensive range of resources to encourage children to learn through play. We favour naturalistic learning resources and make fantastic use of our outdoor equipment, promoting free-flow and child-led learning.
Eco Schools is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world and is designed to encourage action on sustainable development issues. Our children love getting involved in their Eco Schools projects and learning about how to help protect the environment.
Taking part in fundraising activities helps children to learn about others that are less fortunate than themselves and to understand how we can help them. Fundraising events are good fun and are a great way to bring children, families and communities together. Some of the fundraisers we have taken part in are: sponsored toddles, superhero days, baking cakes to sell and garden parties.
We celebrate the big move to primary school with a special graduation ceremony each year – caps, gowns, the works!
We encourage Heuristic Play with our 1–2-year-olds, embracing every child’s natural curiosity. Heuristic play involves offering children a range of different objects and receptacles with which they are encouraged to play freely without adult instruction.
We make use of our wonderful outdoor spaces and forest areas by encouraging children at our nurseries and Out of School Care clubs to plant, grow and tend to fruit, vegetables, flowers and herbs throughout the year.
Our nurseries offer free settling in sessions. Parents can bring their child for a couple of hours first, gradually introducing the child to a new environment. Settling in sessions are aimed at helping your child to adapt to their new surroundings and become more familiar with the staff and other children.
