  • Promoting equal opportunities for all children regardless of their race, religion, colour or personal circumstances
  • Raising awareness of the multicultural nature of society by providing positive images of different ethnic minorities and cultures
  • Developing and maintaining strong links with other agencies and professionals
  • Managing the nursery effectively with a dedicated team working towards providing a high quality service, using effective quality assurance procedures

Snack Time

We are keen to promote healthy eating habits and children will be encouraged to choose from a selection of fresh fruit. Milk is delivered to the Nursery each day and we encourage the children to drink this. Water is available or if requested by parents as a suitable alternative.

You will be asked about any food allergies or any special dietary requirements you child may have.


Parent Testimonials

Tom loved his time at Duchal and I think it helped him flourish into a very confident little boy. I'd highly recommend the nursery to any parents.

Both my children loved every second of Duchal and still look back on their time there fondly, the friendships they forged there in their early years are still as strong as ever many years later.

The facilities are second to none and I particularly liked the fact the children had PE sessions in a proper gym hall and were out in the garden or Birkmyre Park every day, regardless of the weather.
