Learning Through Play

 Happy Children, Inquisitive Minds

At Fernhill School Nursery, our dedicated and experienced nursery team organise a wide range of play activities based on the Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) which enhance your child’s learning experience and enable them to enjoy learning.

We encourage children to participate in arts & crafts, ICT, role play, storytelling, music, construction and much more. 

These activities are designed to help develop your child’s skills and build confidence and self-esteem.

We understand that children benefit from variety and, accordingly, Fernhill School Nursery pupils are allowed to move from activity to activity as their interests dictate.

Wherever our children go, there is a member of staff to help, guide and support them.

Fernhill School Nursery pupils enjoy full access to Fernhill School’s secure nine-acre grounds and every day – weather permitting – they participate in nature walks where they explore and learn about the world around them.

Pupils at our nursery also carry out nature projects throughout the year and enjoy supervised play time on outdoor equipment such as scooters and bikes. 

Our aim is to cultivate a sense of curiosity and independence in children and we strive to offer the best opportunities so that our pupils can explore the subjects of their curiosity and discover their independence – all under the careful supervision of our nursery team.
