Duchal Nursery School

Duchal Nursery School has provided an excellent pre school education to the children of Kilmacolm and the surrounding area for over 45 years.

We provide 26 places for children aged 3-5 and always have 4 members of staff on duty, giving an excellent staff/pupil ratio.  We pride ourselves in the high quality of teaching staff, which includes qualified BEd teachers. 

A private nursery run in conjunction with the parent commitee, Duchal provides excellent pre-school education, preparing youngsters for the next step into primary school.  Annual fees are approximately £2600 each year, these can be paid using the child care voucher scheme, making it a great value option for nursery education (approx £5 an hour)!

The nursery is open daily during term time from 8.15am to 12noon, there is also a lunch club on Wednesdays from 12 noon until 1.30pm.

Come and see us - the children love visitors.

We provide education of the highest standard in a warm, caring, secure and stimulating environment. We foster a family atmosphere, encouraging children to help one another and, in particular, the older children are encouraged to help younger ones.

Our state of the art facilities have a secure outdoor play area where the children have the opportunity to plant flowers and have supervised fun with plentiful playthings. Games and activities are rotated according to the current topic.  We also ensure that the children go for a walk and explore around Birkmyre Park as often as possible.

The children have various outings during the course of the year, in the past these have included Edinburgh Zoo, Kelburn Country Park and the Aquarium at Loch Lomond.  We have regularly PE sessions at St Columba's School gym where the children have lots of space to use up all their energy while learning new skills.
