Parent Reviews

Hannah, B

My daughter has been going to the nursery for almost a year now. She is always excited to go into the Toddler room and is always happy leaving each day, telling me about all the exciting things she has done that day. The girls in the playroom are very friendly and approachable and I am delighted with the progress she has made since starting with them.

Outdoors and Nature

We love to get outside at Happitots South Lanarkshire, where we have a safe and secluded outdoor play area. Each of the three playrooms have their own garden space which can be directly accessed from the playrooms.

We also have a larger greener garden space to the side of the building. We encourage development in all areas of the curriculum including arts, crafts, physical play, literacy, numeracy and more activities!

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.
