Why You Will Love Our Nursery

Welcome to Heritage House Nursery in Pollokshields Glasgow.

The nursery is ideally located for parents using either the M77 and M8 into Glasgow as we are situated only minutes from both.

We provide quality childcare for babies and young children between 6 weeks and 5 years of age.

Heritage House Nursery is a beautiful Victorian House which has been specially adapted to accommodate 90 children. It is situated in a lovely quiet green belt area of suburban Glasgow, but still within easy access for the M8 motorway, and a short walking distance from two local train stations and Glasgow Underground.

Our extensive gardens provide the children with excellent all year round opportunities for learning.

Our opening hours are from 7.30am to 6.00pm Monday - Friday (except Christmas and New Year Bank Holidays) which are designed to give parents the greatest flexibility, and we care for children from the age of six weeks until they go to school.

At Heritage 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 we have several safe, enclosed gardens that offer the children exciting opportunities to play and explore, in all weathers.

We are within walking distance of both Tramway Theatre, Scotland Street Museum and the Burrell Collection and the children often visit or attend workshops at these venues.

Staff are all qualified or working towards a qualification.

Our own chef prepares healthy meals and snacks for the children and we all enjoy visits from Claire our music teacher.

We offer an inclusive fee package, which includes a birthday card on your child's birthday, a special graduation ceremony when your child leaves nursery to attend school.

Come and see our brilliant nursery!
