We are very excited to announce we are currently undergoing a refurbishment from Monday 12th until mid Dec 2018, the nursery is still open as usual and we look forward to showcasing our new look nursery soon!
Castle View is a bright, spacious nursery, purpose built for 89 children. Castle View is situated in a lovely quiet location close to Pitreavie Castle and a short hop to the M90 motorway. The surrounding woodland provides a sanctuary for wildlife and an opportunity for learning. Our opening hours are from 7.15 am to 6.00 pm and we care for children from the age of six weeks until they go to school.
At Castle View Nursery we offer a safe, friendly atmosphere where children can experience a variety of stimulating and exciting activities to suit their individual needs. The building is bright and roomy and all facilities are accessible to the children. Outside there is a safe, enclosed garden which offers everyone the opportunity to gain access from all rooms in all weathers.
Castle View’s purpose built facilities are split into four separate age groups. Our Discoverer room is a soft, snuggly room were we look after our youngest children from birth to around 18 months. Children in the Discoverers room get a large number of sensory experiences, whilst exploring making new friends in our comfortable, relaxed environment.
Our Explorer age group are aged between 18 and 24 months. The Explorers spend much of their time exploring sensory activities with their friends and investigating a wide range of activities aimed at developing their exploration and curiosity of their surroundings. As with all our play rooms the Explorers have direct access to their garden.
Our Investigators are aged between 2 to 3 years. The Investigators is a busy room where the children can access a broad range of opportunities to develop their confidence, independence and friendships. As well as their outdoor space within the nursery grounds the Investigators also spend time in a wooded area close to the nursery building.
Our Inventors age group are 3 to 5 years who spend their day developing their confidence, self esteem and independence getting them ready to make the transition to school. Our programme of activities follows the Curriculum for Excellence where we focus on developing children’s skills in literacy and numeracy and their health and well being. The inventors have access to a variety of rooms and areas within the nursery as well as their spacious outdoor space.
Our refurbishment which is under way will include a Forest Garden and a new garden for the Discoverers. The plans are available to view within the nursery.
Our excellent staff team all hold relevant qualifications and have a breadth of different experience within childcare settings. As part of our balanced curriculum we enjoy weekly visits from a visiting teachers who include music and karate teacher. Castle View also boasts an active parent partnership group who help us to evaluate and improve your nursery
My 4 year old son has been coming to nursery since he was 9 months old. The staff are extremely friendly and they take extra time to get to know the children and their families. - Michelle Fascia
My son settled in really well and loves coming to nursery. I can see a change in him, he is more confident and very comfortable in his environment
We always feel safe leaving Xander in your care and I think that's the biggest compliment. We never have to worry as we know that he's in great hands. He really enjoys his time with you - Ailsa and Kenny
