Welcome to Playpen Nursery

Caterpillars (3-5years)

Our pre-school room is designed to provide a challenging

and rich learning environment which helps to prepare children

for school.

The room allows for 16 children at one time, with two full time members of staff. (Staff: child ratio 1:8). We provide both morning and afternoon Pre-school sessions. During this time, experiences and opportunities are planned by staff in order to follow the children's interests and meet the requirements of the Curriculum for Excellence. "Learning through play" means children are encouraged to become more independent, learn how to problem solve and manage risks whilst in a safe and nurturing environment.


The children have access to a wide variety of free play and planned activities which help to develop numeracy skills, literacy skills, imagination and creativity. Important social skills are also established through taking part in group activities such as circle games, group discussions and small group time.
