Nursery Entry

Our Nursery Open Day takes place in October. However, you are welcome to come and visit our nursery throughout the year.

Children can start in our Nursery 1 class from their 3rd birthday but are normally assessed between 26 and 32 months.  The children meet with Mrs Tracy Nugent, Head of Nursery and the assessment is very informal.  Through play based tasks the children are observed for their communication and language development, for independence and interaction with adults and other children.

Entry to our Nursery 2 (pre-school) class is usually from August at the start of the school term and also involves a play-based assessment.  At this stage our Head of Nursery is considering recognition of colours and shapes, ability to listen and follow instruction as well as language development.

Visits and assessments can be arranged throughout the year, please contact Mrs Lynda Andonovic for further details. No entrance assessment will be undertaken before a completed application form has been received, along with the application fee of £30.

Details of our partnership with Glasgow City Council and the availability of funded places can be found in our Fees information section.

You can download an application form or send an email enquiry below.
