The Waterfront Nursery

Facilities

The Waterfront Nursery has some of the most up-to-date facilities in the city. 

Outdoor Play Area

A spacious, purpose-built outdoor play area is designed to provide your child with a safe environment for physical activity. It comprises of an enclosed area for babies and toddlers, with specially designed soft surfacing. There is also an extensive area with climbing apparatus for the older children.

Online Learning Journals

We use the latest, secure, technology to allow parents and children to benefit from easy access to each child’s individual learning plan.  Using tablets our staff and children are able to photograph and document daily learning experiences for every child, which are then uploaded to each child’s individual profile.  Secure online access allows parents to log into their child’s account whenever they like to see evidence of their child’s latest experiences at nursery.

Lending Library

Children can borrow books, mini sacks and story sacks from our lending library on a weekly basis. These sacks were developed to enhance children’s literacy skills and provide a valuable link between home and nursery. We have books for all ages as well as a variety of dual language books.

Sensory Room

A room created to awaken the little ones senses. Fibre optic lamps, texture tables and sound boxes are used so the children can touch, feel and explore a myriad of senses in a comforting and calming environment.

Through Scotland’s national guidance “Birth to Three: Supporting Our Youngest Children” we aim to provide a holistic and child-centred setting.  Our two baby rooms provide care for up to 18 children, aged 0 – 18 months, working as a unit with integrated sleep, changing area and milk kitchen.  The rooms are set out with a clear sense of order and aesthetic harmony with natural wood surfaces, wicker baskets and soothing music. Recognising that every child is unique and develops at a different pace our babies can then make the transition through to the Tweenie and Toddler room from 15 – 27 months.
