Baby puddleducks Room

Nursery Glasgow | Childcare | After School Care

At Puddleduck nursery our beautiful baby room is bright, spacious, clean, colourful and airy and is designed to offer a cosy home like atmosphere. We have places for 9 babies on a daily basis from 6 weeks upwards. All staff are carefully selected based on their genuine love of children because we realise that one of the most important decisions that a parent can make, is to trust their baby into the care of another person.

Each of our babies will have their own personalised learning journal of their achievements in which we will enter all their very special developments to share with parents and carers when they finish work. Each child has their own key worker.

Our high staff ratios enables us to take babies out frequently and our beautiful environmental garden allows fun and games outdoors in our designated shaded area.

The quality of physical care and nurturing we give our babies is paramount, we also stimulate and support our baby's development by engaging them in challenging play activities in a learning environment that is designed to enhance their senses.

Within baby Puddleducks room, staff work with the birth-three planning for all babies in their care, to ensure each baby is reaching the stage of development they should be at and observation where each area of birth-three can be reassessed to develop further development through play experiences.

Jemimas Play Room

Nursery Glasgow | Childcare | After School Care

In the Jemimas play room at Puddleduck Nursery we value your child coming to our nursery as an active experimental learner with a natural curiosity,

Great emphasis is placed upon your childs understanding and appreciation of their friends, family and their social environment. We will help your child to develop as confident, empowered, resilient and happy individuals. Of course all of these educational aspects for development are important but can only be beneficial to your child when they are offered alongside alongside care and affection. While we could never emulate the feeling of love parents can give their own child. We only employ people who are capable of sharing great kindness and empathy and understanding of what an individual child out of their own home environment needs to be happy.

Throughout your child's time here we build up photographic and textual learning journal as a record of achievement which you can see and add to at our parents evening and it is a lovely gift from us before your child goes to school, one of our high lights of our pre-school year is the graduation when we celebrate the children's times at Puddleduck Nursery.

Curriculum for Excellence

Our 3-5 year old children are involved in the decision making of our monthly themes, this encourages deep level thinking in our children opening up their minds and imagination. To become successful learners through play experiences all children within our curriculum play a big part in the planning of our activities and recording observations within our floor books.

Outdoor Play Area

Our Bramble Wood Environmental Garden is a spacious soft surface area where children can play in a safe and secure environment. In other areas of our garden we grow our own fruit and vegetables where children are encouraged to get involved in the natural resources of the earth and to become more eco-friendly little gardeners and to be more aware of the natural world around them.

Out of School Care

Puddleduck out of school care is based in the same building block as the nursery, the large hall within the the building is used with access to a garden area.

The out of school care offers many activities including sports, arts and crafts, baking, model making, painting, board games, team games, outdoor free play and more.

During holidays various outings are arranged to places of interest including country parks, visitor centres, animal parks, museums and art galleries etc.

Out of school care staff will drop off and collect children from the local schools.
