Ardownie Room (3 – 4 years)

A happy and bright environment welcomes you to the Ardownie Room.  We hold a maximum of 20 children aged between three and four years old and work within a 1:8 ratio.  The Ardownie room is laid out in such a way that it encourages children to learn through play whilst developing their social and communication skills.

We are very lucky to have a covered decking area running the full length of the nursery and this allows the playroom to be extended into this outdoor space.  The children are free to explore different areas of the decking throughout the day including a creative/art area, construction, small world and water play.

Meal times are a social occasion with all the children sitting together at the tables for lunch whereas snack times are more of a free flow nature.  Independence is promoted throughout every meal as children are encouraged and given opportunities to serve their own lunch, spread their toast and pour their own drinks.

Children remain at the centre of all we do in the nursery and they have a large influence on the planned activities that take place within the room.  We work with Curriculum for Excellence to ensure we are providing an in-depth and well-rounded learning experiences of each individual child.


Working together to inspire our children to excel in everything they do, to become confident, respected and valued members of our nursery, our community and our environment. To prepare children for life long success.
