Welcome to Kelvin Nursery part of Busy Bees.
We provide quality childcare for babies and young children between 6 weeks and 5 years of age.
We have flexible opening hours here at Kelvin which are 7.30am to 6.00pm Monday – Friday.
We close two days at Christmas and two days at New Year, otherwise we provide our care all year round.
At Kelvin we offer an inclusive fee package, which includes all healthy and nutritious meals (made daily by our own resident chef), nappies, wipes and cream and also cows milk when your child is of age. We also like to make a birthday cake and card to help celebrate your child's birthday and we also hold a special graduation ceremony when your child leaves nursery to attend school.
Kelvin Nursery is a lovely purpose built nursery which accommodates 91 children. It is situated in the West Of Scotland Science Park, Maryhill. The attractive surroundings provide stimulating and extensive ground for the children to explore and enjoy.
We also have our own wide-ranging safe and secure gardens which provide the children with excellent prospects for learning in all weathers.
We are situated close to the M8 and several bus routes from multiple areas.
At Kelvin Nursery you can rest assure that all staff thrive towards providing a tranquil environment which includes a safe, friendly and stimulating atmosphere. Staff provide and guide a variety of inviting experiences for the children to suit their individual needs and interests which will help them to grow and develop.
Each room is colourful and spacious and has their own special aspects such as our baby rooms black and white area.
Staff are all qualified and attend many training courses to further and enhance their knowledge.
Come and see our beautiful nursery for yourselves, you wont be displeased.
Staff are always friendly and helpful and my child seems to have lots of variety in the things he plays with. Itâ€™s great that he gets lots of time to play outside and he loves this
My child seems to really enjoy nursery. The range of activities he is offered is good, itâ€™s always nice to hear what heâ€™s been up to on a day to day basis. The girls do a great job
This is the second time around I have used kelvin nursery and I would highly recommend it as both my children have been very happy at this nursery
My Name is Karen Fowler and I started my post as nursery manager at Busy Bees Glasgow Kelvin on 28.07.14. I have been managing nurseries for over thirteen years and I have worked in partnership with various authorities. This year (2014) I was part of the organising committee that organised the Early Years Conference for the City of Edinburgh. I currently hold a B.A. in Childhood Studies which I gained at the University of Glasgow.
I believe that every individual child should be supported to reach their full potential and I feel the best way of achieving this is by working in partnership with parents, staff, other professionals and agencies.
I have various interests but mostly I enjoy walking, swimming, dancing and socialising with my friends and family. I have been involved in a foundation for children charity and I have walked the West Highland Way and climbed Ben Nevis to raise funds for this charity.
I have one daughter and I am a proud grandmother to two beautiful little boys.
